There's a deep discount grocery store I visit that has lots of gourmet items, has foods from all sorts of ethnic markets, and from regular grocery wholesalers who didn't sell items before they would soon reach the sell-by date (apologies if I've already mentioned it a dozen times). Any meat they buy like that is always frozen in time to be still in excellent shape. A few weeks ago I bought a 3.5 pound frozen package of organic chicken thighs, skinless and boneless (because that's what they had) that was half-price from the original marked on it (signaled by being crossed through the price with a red marker). And if you bought two, the second was one cent. Seven pounds of organic chicken for $5. I thawed and made one of those packages into chicken teriyaki this evening and it was marvelous. I have lots of leftovers. (The recipe is in the "What Are We Eating" thread.)

The front yard was mowed, but oh does my knee smart from it! The last of three gel shots is later this week and that should remedy the problem - it is kind of lopsided right now, having been injected once on each side. The third shot will be on the problem side again and should give me more cushion. But after mowing it was too much to also walk the dogs. My lab just mopes along sometimes and a friend suggested that he needs more time in the rough to get to investigate his surroundings. But to do that, my knee needs to feel better.

My list on the kitchen counter is different than I've made before, but it's working. I've remembered to put small stuff down as well so I can actually see my progress through the day. Laundry washed, dried, and folded along with finally changing a porch light bulb, doing various errands that need doing, etc.
