Hasn't been any sugar or butter deals around here for about a year now.
If 3.00 for butter shows up, better buy it

That's why I'm getting 2 or 3 @ 0.99 lb. pork butts tomorrow. I haven't seen that price or even the cuts of meat in over a year.

Bought the kiddo a youth model single shot .22. She's obviously a few years too young but the damn thing is just hilarious. It's about 31" overall and has a 2x scope and bipod.

Actually a darn good survival rifle. Even has a threaded barrel. When she outgrows it it might go in the car.

Picked up more ramen yesterday, along with some mayo and a few other items.
I try not to keep a lot of mayo and dressing type stuff as the best by dates are usually only about a year. Mayo, mustard, ranch.
On the ranch, I keep a lot of the dry mix on hand for LT, instead of the ready to use ranch. I figure that should last a lot time. And we don't use the dry mix unless we run out of the other.

Canned 14 pint jars of potatoes this morning. Checked the supply of mayo and prepared mustard. I need to start eating more sandwiches and making tater salad. Got 2 unopened large jars mustard and some in the frig.

The last of our taters look kinda alien like. A shriveled mushy ball looking thing, with a greenish red antenna coming up beside it, about 5" tall.

These today were on their way to looking that way. Look fine now.

Must have cooled some. The link now shows a higher price, at least for me.

Checked my shelves. I think if I bought more ramen the next thing I'd see would be a noose.  :rofl:

Combined some tub containers to gain an empty one, to store the newly purchased ramen stock pile. I'll need to order another case of containers  ::) here shortly.
I really need shelving also.

Added some items to the storeroom.

We always add, every time we shop. That builds the supplies.
We also use ours as a working storeroom.

Got the last of 24 qts. of vegetable/meat soup processing. Looking at next week's weather forecast probably Mon-Wed will be pretty wet. Good time to dehydrate eggs I think.

Tomorrow I'm planning on the pork I have cooked and cut up. It's just relaxing in the frig. Might as well put it to work. That is why I've been messing with the chicken bouillon this morning, don't want to use my chicken stock for this nor do I want to use water.

Picked up 4 dz. more eggs this morning. When I get all dehydrated that should give a several year supply of dried eggs.
