Loblaws are also doing pork shoulder and leg roasts for 99c/lb. I just got there when they were clearing there shelfs, I guess there is a delivery coming and with no snow there has been little buisness, so we got beef hearts at 1/3 of the usual $2/lb and the same for pork hearts, best deals today were pork hocks $3.30-$3.45 with $3 off coupons and there value pack chicken thighs special $2.14/kg in packs of $5-6 again with $3 coupons. I loaded up and now i'm in a panic, I have left some in a plastic storage bin as it's -11 outside. I need to remove the junk thats been living on my freezer for the past 3 years and make room, Rileys sugestion was to leave it on the kitchen floor and he'll work out a way to store it.

Actually, now I think about it, I think it was Doninion/A&P, not sure as I was waiting for my wife to have her hair done and I went to all the local supermarkets looking for specials and salad. Anyhow, one of them 2 have the deals, it might even be loblaws for the Pork but I already cleaned out the local IGA and I know A&P are the only other place here to offer hearts. One woman at the checkout asked me how I would cook the hearts, i said I jsut throw them on the mat and if the dog like it warmed up he just breathes on it for a while, she asked about the raw diet and then went and got a few pork hearts as a treat for her dog. I didn't want to venture into the bones part of it all. But she's going to have one happy dog looking and the bag of kibbles and bits it usually gets.

It's funny, with my scrubs and a stethoscope around my neck, people think I'm some kind of an authority

Lol TD, the meat guy and I are best buds at my local Provigo so I get away with a few things. Small town grocery stores are easier to manipulate.

I also think that the small-town restaurant owners don't all flock to the supermarket to fill their trucks with on-sale meats ... they do this here in Mtl, hence the qty restrictions on some sale items. many things are better in a small town!
