I lucked out at the supermarket today! I found a few packages of veal for a very low price, and started digging down for what ever else was down in the pile.
Yes! A pound of buffalo for only $2.99. When I got it home I realized it was beyond the sell-by date, and probably was frozen even though the package said it was fresh. Well, I am not going to turn this violation into the meat authorities, because when I opened the package, it smelled fine.
Of course, I made more dehydrated-zucchini-and-olive-brine hamburgers, and ate them with sauteed leeks, kale from trader Gamma, feta cheese from trader Felix, wrapped in lettuce. This time I made a ton of mini-burgers so that I could eat a whole plate of them. And, that's just what I did.
I also ate the rest of the scallops, with mushroom, leek and fennel, along with eggs, for breakfast, with the usual fresh juices. For lunch, I enjoyed more blueberries, but the strawberries were all eaten by pests, so no strawberries today. Dinner included more of the mini-burgers, yogurt with lemon and a pinch of sugar from one of my traders, fresh roasted butternut squash, two artichokes, a few olives and a couple of pea pods from trader Beta.
Today's purchases: buffalo for $2.99, yogurt for $1.00, eggs for $1.00, leaving me with 12.91 in the kitty.
