    A few things I'd like to share
    : You may have noticed that
    we didn't purchase meat this week, that's because in previous weeks we've purchased large packages of meat and re-packed them into appropriate size packages for meals for our family. Buying the meat in bulk when we find good deals allows us to take advantage of weekly loss leader sales at our favorite stores.
