I hoard meat.
It's not pretty, but it's true. When organic chicken goes on sale, I stockpile it, vacuum seal it and pop it in the freezer. The same goes for chops and beef.
I know that around the holidays, roasts go on sale. Right before Easter, I'll be able to nab a $50 standing rib roast for about $16.
I can also tell you where to buy the sweetest organic tomatoes at the lowest price and the best wild caught fish for the least amount of money.
"You're like a food shopping expert," D said. "Out of nowhere, you'll say, 'Whole chickens are on sale for 69 cents a pound.' Who knows that stuff?"
"You know how to install a thermostat and wire light fixtures. Who knows that stuff?" I asked.
"I guess everybody has a thing," he said.
"Exactly, like my mom with gardening. Total expert. That's because she loves it. Like you love building stuff," I said.
"Like you love food," he said.
"Exactly," I said. "Is dinner almost ready?"
At what are you an expert?
