We dont know many prices, but last week TBT got large shrimps (frozen, deveined) $11.99 for 2 pounds, a whole filet mignon for $8.99/lb (trimmed and custom cut to 1.5" thick), and today 2 whole chickens at $0.89/lb. And while this may not be your thing (or ours), he gets 1.5L bottles of the very drinkable 'Twisted Zin' brand Zinfandel for $10/per bottle by the 6 bottle box.

BTW, TBT has the butcher save the Filet trimmings. He gets off another 4-5 ounces from the trimmings and WE get that.

Sounds good but you should be careful about using watermarked pics. I just read a piece by a food blogger who's going after those using his pics.
