Boneless Ribeye Steaks, Baby Beef Liver, and our famous Braunschsweiger! Also this week we have Fresh Lake Perch for just $10.99lb! We have been getting the Lake Perch from the same source (caught in Lake Erie) for a number of years because we've had much success. Each time we have these on sale, we get so many comments on how great it is...and cheaper and better than going out for a Fish Dinner. In addition to the aforementioned specials, we have our Baby Back Ribs on sale as well for only $3.99lb. Now, I had someone come up to me last week and say that the larger producers are getting more money for their Pork now. While that is somewhat true, there is something you should know...the larger producers add water and a salt solution to their Pork (and some to their Beef and Chicken) to "enhance" their product. This not only adds water-weight to their product which cheapens their product, it also lengthens their shelf-life of their product. If you think about what's wrong with the meats in larger grocery stores and how it doesn't taste the same as it used to...it's because people/companies are changing the flavor of the product when it leaves the plant. If you think about how the chain works for the larger grocery stores to get products in, they have to order it from a meat plant, then it has to go to their warehouse, then it has to be shipped out, then it has to be put out by the store. This can take several weeks, so they have to make sure that their product stays good that whole time, in turn, they have to alter the meat. NONE of that process is done to our Pork or Chicken or Beef! That's why, next to the Baby Back Ribs, it says "No Solution Added", because we need to differentiate ours products from the ones that everyone else carries.
My husband and I purchased an old home in Northern New York State from two elderly sisters.
Winter was fast approaching and I was concerned about the house's lack of insulation. "If they could live here all those years, so can we!" my husband confidently declared.
One November night the temperature plunged to below zero, and we woke up to find interior walls covered with frost. My husband called the sisters to ask how they had kept the house warm. After a rather brief conversation, he hung up.
"For the past 30 years," he muttered, "they've gone to Florida for the winter."
