Some time back I’d posted how the nearby Joe’s Meat Market. Today I was tasked to go in and get some skin on bone in chicken thighs and some slab bacon cut nice and thick.
The deal 10lbs of skin on bone in chicken thighs were $12. That works out to $1.20 a pound for one of the best parts of chicken you can get. And they’re super easy to de-bone – two lateral cuts, one scrape under with good shears and one just pulls the bone out of the thigh. The bones of course have a little meat on them so they get saved to make soup later on.
Yesterday I got two ribeye steaks – cut about an inch or so thick. That was more pricey but I’ll say something – usually you end up with a lot of gristle with steaks like that you might purchase at a supermaket (Or is that supermercado?) In fact I think the quality of the steaks is what caused an order to get the chicken at the same place.
Plus it supports a local business. It saddens me to see the number of local places that have shut down over the years. But this market seems to be going strong. Hopefully it’ll be going strong for years to come.
And we’re going to be eating chicken thighs for awhile I guess.
