Default Remember when ?


Hamburger was subsistence food and not a luxury ? I went to the store
a couple of days ago for charcoal while I was in town to fill our
propane tanks and decided to check out the meat cases . 80/20 ground
chuck is now at $6.59 per pound here . That's crazy , but a sign of the
times . Chicken is up a bit , boneless/skinless breasts (large , fresh)
are at $1.99 , pork is still at or near pre-scamdemic prices .

It has always depended on how much money you make. For me, hamburger
is just as cheap as it was in 1986. My salary has kept up with inflation
in the price of ground chuck.

I'll get back to you after I'm retired. It'll probably seem more expensive
then.

$24.60 yesterday. Up about $5 from 4 months ago.

$5 wasn't an everyday price, was it?

Ya see Cindy , the SAME PRODUCT was around 4 bucks a pound just a few
short weeks ago . It seems beef has been disproportionally affected by
the scamdemic . Many other meat products have been affected a lot less ,
as evidenced by the prices I've been seeing in our local chain store .

No , closer to 4 bucks , with on-sale prices nearer $3.19 to $3.59
depending on if it was 73/27 or 80/20 .

Oh. "Remember when" was four weeks ago. I thought you were referring to
a much longer time span, as most people do who invoke that kind of
nostalgia.

I don't eat much ground beef, so I never pay attention to the price.
A half pound for a couple of burgers isn't going to break the bank,
even at $6.59/lb. It looks like ground chuck is $6.99/pound at the
store where I would buy it. That's less than I would have expected.

Well that's recent history ... but I can remember when we were first
married it was 3 lbs for a buck . But then IIRC gas was under 50 cents a
gallon then and a "good job" was one that paid around 6 bucks an hour . .

And then came the socialist revolution and everything became
expensive? Is that roughly how it works between your ears?

umm, for us hamburger was a luxury, steaks were even
nicer, we ate a lot of pasta and vegetables. what i
also remember is that the beef was grass fed and not
as fat as it is these days.

we did eat more chicken than beef, we never had lamb.
sometimes venison or liver. sometimes fish or shrimp
but more likely when we would catch it ourselves. it
wasn't until i was around 10 that i tasted lobster
and scallops. crab came later, the fake crab i do
like and certain brands we used to eat a lot until
something changed and we couldn't really find what
we liked any more (not sure what happened).

our most common meat was cold cuts and hotdogs. they
were much cheaper than beef.


I went to the store
a couple of days ago for charcoal while I was in town to fill our
propane tanks and decided to check out the meat cases . 80/20 ground
chuck is now at $6.59 per pound here . That's crazy , but a sign of the
times . Chicken is up a bit , boneless/skinless breasts (large , fresh)
are at $1.99 , pork is still at or near pre-scamdemic prices .


i don't know what the meat prices have been like at
the store, we normally don't buy a lot of meat.

today i finished off some lima beans and to make
it kinda like lasagna filling i put some oregano,
cheese and an egg with them and cooked it all until
the egg was set. hit the spot.

now i'm about to have a small salad with a chunk
of cheese on the side.
