Don't know what they'll be this year, but last year the best price was $1.99 for 12 oz b4 Thanksgiving, & then it held at $2.49 till they ran out. :mad: So I made a mental note to do this year's hoarding b4 T'g.
Thanks to various OPs for hints about Costco jumbo bags, and about watching grocery-store circulars. I'll go retrieve today's circulars from the recycling bin, for the grocery stores I don't usually visit--good hint.
If you're afraid of butter, use cream. ~~ Julia Child
As you cook, you enjoy omniscience about food that no amount of label reading can match. Having retaken control of the meal from the food scientists, you know exactly what is in it. (Unless you start w/cream of mushroom soup, in which case all bets are off.) To reclaim control over one's food, to take it back from industry & science, is no small thing; indeed, in our time, cooking from scratch qualifies as subversive. ~~ Michael Pollan
