I went to grocery shop today. Huge price increases throughout the store. Even bread. Dairy was very sparse.. Very little chicken, what there was ran 4.99/# up to $8.99/# for boneless skinless breasts. Freezer section was very empty. Produce was plentiful, but expensive. I heard snippets of 4 different conversations of different people about preparing for food shortages. I basically could not afford any meat. It was all crazy expensive. Except for pork shoulder which was $1.79/#.
Be ready!

@BrandiSmile Isn't it awful? I refuse to pay those prices for meat! I get whatever is the best deal too! $5.99/lb for hamberger. NOPE! I will not, ever! Love Ranchers Pot Roast (uses Chuck Roast). They wanted $15 for a little roast. They can keep it! Ya walk outta there with 2-3 bags for $140. It is bad! Every time I go it is worse! Not to mention everything else that's skyrocketing, gas, electricity, heating oil, all goods etc. Out of control!

@KarePatriot @BrandiSmile maybe this is part of the plan to turn us onto their cursed plant based meat substitute

@Arcalian @KarePatriot I. Only eat plants that are undisguised. Blech, if I want a burger substitute I will damn well use a portobello without completely ruining it with additives and garbage.

@BrandiSmile

I hear ya, I love a grilled marinated bella top with cheese on a great bun!

@Arcalian @KarePatriot

@Bleukitty @Arcalian @KarePatriot mmmmmm, yumm. In Commiefornia I used to get Pretzel buns. Cannot find those yummifullicious things anywhere up here! That's a great vessel for portabella burgers!

@BrandiSmile

They are easy to make. When I make sourdough pretzels, they are large. I slice them and make sammies....πŸ˜‹

@Arcalian @KarePatriot

@Bleukitty @Arcalian @KarePatriot I'm starting a sourdough starter here in the next couple of weeks. $5 foe a loaf of bread? I think NOT!

@Bleukitty @Arcalian @KarePatriot I have just been lazy. Can't do that anymore. Next week, as my love gets better, I should just quit being afraid of failure, waste 5# of flour and git er done!!!

@BrandiSmile

You'll be fine. Just be patient with your stater and get a good container for it, preferably glass.

@Arcalian @KarePatriot

@Bleukitty @Arcalian @KarePatriot wide mouth qt jar? My last I tried to do in a weck jar, but it was way too small.

@BrandiSmile

Yes, something st least 16oz, so you leave enough to feed for the next loaf. I have a clamp jar, I like those best. I leave it open when I wake it up after being in the fridge.

@Arcalian @KarePatriot

@BrandiSmile

Good luck. Mine is asleep in the fridge. I've been making yeast sandwich rolls lately. Do you have a Bread Outlet near you? We have one, it isn't close but when we go into Concord NC we stop by pick up treats (tasty cakes) the hubby likes the Raspberry ones. So cheap. SunMaid Raisin Bread is $1.50, at the grocery it is $5.00!

@Arcalian @KarePatriot

@Bleukitty @Arcalian @KarePatriot there is a bread outlet, but it's not only 40 miles away, its smack dab in the middle of the most peopley part of town. 🀯πŸ₯΅

@BrandiSmile

Bad area? The one we go to is 20 miles away in an old part of town. We like the lady that runs it so we go there.

@Arcalian @KarePatriot

@Bleukitty @Arcalian @KarePatriot Not a bad area, I'm just kinda allergic to town! 🀣 No, it's not a covid thing, not on my part, but I must say, people are quite insane because of it! I just like my "peace" in the woods with the busiest thing being the creek!

@BrandiSmile

I totally get that! Which is why we go to the one that is in a quiet part of town. 😁

@Arcalian @KarePatriot

@KarePatriot I did pick up a huge tri tip for $18 I think. It's $5 Friday. We use tri tip as pot roast in the winter. It's like 15 meals for us!!! I realize I spent a bit more because I did buy quick convenient things for Creekside Willy (hummus, sliced cheese, heat and eat stuff) so I could have trimmed the budget a bit. I was just surprised at the low selection. Oh pet food.... GONE!
