One of the many benefits of marriage, fellows.

Were I yet a bachelor, undoubtedly I would have eaten this.

One point of contention, honey. Does that $150 include our alcohol budget allocation for Schnuck's?

I know, $50 a week is a little low for alcohol, but we're paying off a coupla cars and a mortgage.

Fifty thou year will buy a lot of beer, or a little less beer and a house.

There are a LOT of stores who repackage their meat and change the sell-by dates. I would not be surprised to see that they're one of those stores.

I wouldn't return, period. No more chances - nowhere in the chain. You've been suprisingly forgiving!

May I recommend finding a good butcher to buy your meat from. Honestly the quality is so much better, packaged grocery store meat is nearly inedible by comparison.

Food is the one place I don't scrimp when it comes to quality. I had to do that when we were first married because we didn't have enough money to eat otherwise. Once my husband was earning a real paycheck - food was my first upgrade and has remained so ever since.

I have even explained the concept of salvage meat to Heather. That's when certain lower-end stores (such as the one for which I worked to pay for my college educatationalization) buy meat as it expires at a great discount to put it on their shelves for a couple of days to make a couple pennies on it before throwing it out.

Or why one should never buy the meat with the "Save $2.00 now!" coupons on it.

And why should avoid the sausage home-made right there in the store. Those aren't the finest ingredients available.

Their chicken is like that. I always get liquid salmonella on my hands when I buy it packaged.

Now I go straight to the Schnuck's Butcher at Hilltop Village.

But I'm seriously thinking about the Dierberg's a mile down the road.
