    Default Chicken prices

    I looked up the price of canned chicken here at Safeway. The sale price
    this week for The Valley Fresh brand of canned breast is $4.30 a pound.
    That is the cheapest I found.

    The cheapest price I found for boneless, skinless breast (fresh) is $4.99 a
    pound. That is for the Value-tray pack of their brand, that's 1.5 pounds.
    For some reason if you buy it frozen, you can get it for $3.02 a pound. But
    you are buying a very large package if frozen. There is an extreme Value
    Pack of 3 pounds that is $3.89 a pound and it is buy one get one free right
    now.

    Split chicken breast (bone in) sells for $1.99 a pound but you have to buy
    4.5 pounds at a time. The Foster Farms is cheaper still at $1.69 a pound
    and you only have to buy 1.5 pounds at a time.

    Drumsticks are as cheap as $1.29 a pound but you have to buy 5 pounds.
    Thighs are the same price.

    So I guess the canned chicken when compared to the boneless, skinless
    breasts isn't necessarily more expensive. But the bone is chicken is for
    sure cheaper!

    I do keep plenty of canned chicken around especially during the winter. And
    I donate it to the food bank.

    Ack! Forgive my wording. There is an obvious error in my second paragraph.
    I blame the remnants of the headache I still have. Either that or the
    storm. Thunder and power failure earlier. But my BG is down! It's even
    almost normal!

    Drumsticks and thighs are on sale here for $0.80 a pound. I bought some big
    packages to combine with the frozen chicken trimmings I've bee storing up to
    make a big vat of stock. I'm all out, and soup season is here.

    I must admit that is something I have never bought. It had not
    occurred to me that such a product existed, but I've eaten canned ham
    and canned beef in a previous life, so I suppose it must.

    I'll give it a miss.

    You are not likely to get snowed in! I find it something very important to
    have during the winter. I also have canned beef. Haven't brought myself to
    try it. I did have canned ham but gave it to the food bank. I can't stand
    ham and Angela doesn't eat it any more either.

    Yep, being snowed in is not high on my list of concerns. On the other
    hand, getting cut off by floods and fires is enough of a worry that I
    do have a fair supply of foods in the larder for emergencies.

    But canned chicken is not among them. Lots of good wine though

    Oh. All of Western WA is now under a flood warning. We are having a ton of
    rain here. Lost our power yesterday.

    Sorry to hear it. Whoever made this country provided a faulty
    rain-tap. It only knows two settings - off or on - drought or flood.
    Most of NSW west of the great Dividing Range is flooding right now, or
    will as it moves down the various rivers.

    It was nice that it was sunny for the first time in a week when
    Oprah's mob visited Byron Bay near here yesterday. At least that'll be
    good for tourism when she airs it next year.

    It was even sunny in Melbourne when she arrived there. Maybe she does
    have a friend upstairs
