My son called me to tell me that Aldi's had their 5 LB. tubes of hamburger on sale and that it was averaging out at $1.80/lb..
Normally I don't buy tubes of hamburger but he eats this all the time so I knew it was decent (he is my picky child).
Out of the 5 lbs.I made
6 Salisbury steaks
6 mock country fried steaks
12 meatballs the size of golf balls
and tonight's meal...meatloaf.
That averages out to $2.25 for the meat per meal...BUT we only ate 3 of the Salisbury steaks and I put the other 3 back(already cooked) in the freezer...so that is now 5 meals making the meat $1.80/meal.
IF we only eat 3 of the mock country fried steaks (same size as the Salisbury so that is a good sign we will) then that will make 6 meals making the meat $1.50/ meal.
We like meatballs too much and meatloaf too much to make a second meal of it when I only used a little bit over 1 lb. to begin with.
I now understand why Mom always had oatmeal and crackers but we very seldom ate them. I don't remember ever eating oatmeal for breakfast, that was Cream of Wheat (ground semolina flour) or CoCo wheat (ground corn grits flavored with cocoa). I preferred Cream of Wheat, Brother preferred Coco Wheat.
Have a Blessed Day
