In the fall of 2014 a news cast reported the forecast of a serious increase in beef prices. I opted to do my ostrich impression and waited and waited and waited on a good beef sale so that I could stock my freezer. “Sales” appeared in the store ads weekly, but in my penny-pinching world $4.99/lb is NO sale. Since ours is a household of carnivores, I needed to find an alternative. Enter pigs! I noticed that pork prices were at least half those of beef. There are as many varieties of pork as there are beef. So if you are finding that purchasing beef is breaking your budget consider buying more pork. The cows will thank you!
