I have big plans of grocery shopping, however I won’t make it out until tomorrow. I did go out earlier this week though and grab the 40 lbs of chicken that I mentioned last week. We shop at a local restaurant supply store called the Chef Store. You’ll find similar stores all over the southeast (google Gordon Food Service, or Restaurant Supply Store).
I was budgeting $60 for the purchase based on our last trip, but was giddy to find that the price has dropped significantly to $1.07 per lb! My 40 lb case only cost $43.
Before I move on, let me emphasize how huge of a saving this is. This is boneless, skinless, chicken breast. Regularly in the grocery store this will run $2.50-$3.99 per lb. On sale in the grocery store you can find it for $1.99 but never cheaper. For the 40 pounds we bought, that would have been $80 in the grocery store if bought on sale or way more if we paid full price.
I normally do all of my shopping on Wednesday, but this week Mary Rose and I made a trip to Atlanta for a follow up instead of shopping. We are right at the 1 year mark of her diagnosis with Perthes. It’s a couple year journey at the least, but we are guessing we are nearing the half way point now. She found out this week that she can resume most of her normal activities! Things are going great, the hip is slowly rebuilding and so far is regrowing perfectly round. We’ve been boldly praying that she never has to have another surgery either now or way in the future (usually a hip replacement after 20). The doctor said Wednesday that the “bad” hip is actually doing even better than the good in terms of range-of-motion. Now begins the strength building process to try to take away her limp. Through all of this though, nothing has taken away her smile!
