    But, on the other hand,
    Beef Steak $9.00 a pound.
    Beef Steak Tomatoes, $.65 a pound.

    I dunno about you, but in the supermarkets near me the price of good ’maters is up there with the beef.

    Clyde knows the price and the black market value of everything.

    I saw it, but to me it looks like a reflection of Lemont’s face.

    That’s true on most things – healthy food is way more expensive than unhealthy. But if you like fish it’s usually inexpensive and vegetable are inexpensive…of course when feeding picky children you can’t just buy fish and veggies.

    Yeah, even in SoCal where we grow tomatoes, they’re about $2/lb. at chain supers. Hamburger frozen in patties is about $2.50/lb, and there’s no waste or spoilage.

    Good catch! It is probably logically a reflection of Lemont,but drawn to resemble the big pitcher.

    Don’t know where you buy fish, but where I live it’s more expensive than beef or pork, and a lot higher than chicken. Frozen fillets aren’t too bad, but still high, which is whyI seldom eat fish even though I like it.

    Good food:
    Lima beans and butter beans
    Black-eyed peas and other peas
    greens mustard, collards, kale, turnips
    sweet potatoes
    Bread (preferably sourdough, but the others are good too, including pita and tortilla)
    turkey (preferably in pot pies)
    soybeans and tofu
    bacon (argue all you want but food which makes you happy is got to be good food, also good to add to you cabbage, your greens, your peas, your lima beans)
    If you fear you aren’t getting enough nutrients out of those foods which have fed populations for millennia, spend another ten cents or less and add a multivitamin.
    Affording good food depends greatly on deciding whether or not you are actually willing to eat good food.
