Re: What Are You Doing to Stretch Your Meat Supply?

In Ontario you’re not allowed to have more than 3 months supply of any prescription medication. What was happening here was pharmacies were only filling one month at a time in view of the pandemic. That didn’t sit well with me! Price gouging as you pay a dispensing fee three times instead of one. B...

Re: What Are You Doing to Stretch Your Meat Supply?

I haven't had a clean kitchen since March although I clean up after every meal, there is always groceries to unpack and reorganize , or something thawing for dinner tomorrow or pre cooking I am trying to get un...

Re: What Are You Doing to Stretch Your Meat Supply?

What an incredible post, I think you put into words exactly how we all feel. Never did I think about having the money to buy my needs, but unable to get them without jumping through hoops.

Re: What Are You Doing to Stretch Your Meat Supply?

For those of us who are carnivores (or are married to carnivores) what are you doing to stretch meat during this time of limitations? Or What will you be doing to stretch out meat when limits hit your grocery store? We bought a second freezer and filled it (to the brim) with all cuts of beef, chick...
