This Week's Hot New Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts (including the former Sunflower), while the current one continues at Whole Foods.  Click there for the prior Whole Foods report, and I'm afraid I'm short on time to get to looking at Sprouts, but you can see their rather fuzzy pdf of the new flyer here.  More later, as soon as I get a chance.

Phew, and now a few seconds for the new Sprouts ad, lasting through September 26th.  There's a 72 hour sale for Friday through Sunday, including whole pineapples for $1 each (excellent price, but surely without the Whole Trade pedigree) and ez-peel 41/50 count (pretty small but useful in many dishes) raw shrimp for $3.79 a pound.  In the general sale, the big deal is boneless skinless chicken breasts at $1.97 a pound in the value pack.  Also, boneless center-cut pork loin chops are $2.99 a pound, and pork tenderloin is low at $2.97 a pound, although I've never mastered cooking with that.  Chicken sausage is $2.99 a pound, as are Sprouts' own (quite good) stuffed chicken breasts.  Fresh wild northern king salmon fillets are $9.99 a pound, as are fresh wild mahi mahi fillets (excellent on the grill and especially for fish tacos, but the fish must be truly fresh).  Also, fresh ground chicken, pork, or chicken breast (the leanest) are all good at $2.99 a pound, and the more I get into Asian wraps, the more I like this.

In organic produce, you can get a one pound bag of carrots for an astonishing 69 cents, a three pound bag of gala apples for $3.99 (barely over a dollar a pound), grape tomatoes are $2.50 a pint, broccoli is $1.69 a pound (not the best price we've ever seen), russet potatoes are 99 cents a pound, green onions are 99 cents a bunch, and roma tomatoes are $1.99 for a three count package, although I didn't see those (could have missed them) when I was there moments ago.  (Paid $3.49 a pound for my organic romas.)

So that quickly does it, but to my faithful readers (and I thank you so much!!!), I have to say that my life is getting busier, and keeping this blog current to my standards is getting more difficult.  I appreciate your patience as I sort out what's best for myself (since this is purely on my own, no remuneration involved whatsoever).  I enjoy doing it very much, but it's increasingly hard to find time.
