A Grocery Nightmare

Have you seen the prices lately? Even the marked down meat was too expensive. I'm not paying over $5.00 for a pound of ground round. Seems no one else is buying either. It's not like there is a shortage, the shelves are full, but it's like they spent the last couple nights marking everything up. I felt like I was in a food museum. I could look but I wasn't about to buy anything at those prices. After wandering the aisles I left without buying anything. Across from the Hospital there is an empty lot where locals bring produce in their pick-ups to sell. I decided to try there and the prices were a whole lot more reasonable. Imagine that. This could actually force me to improve my diet, eating fresh produce instead of processed foods. I wonder if there is a local meat market? I can't remember seeing one. With Kroger, Albertson's, and Wal-mart in town there may no longer be one. I'll need to get out the phone book and look. Since we are surrounded by Cattle ranches you would think someone should be selling locally. With what they are charging at the grocery stores they could make a bundle.
