Bargains you can't miss: With pork at this price, it's time to stock up

Can't miss deals: with pork at this price, it's the time to stock up

MISE À DAY

In order to help our readers deal with the repercussions of rising food prices, among other things, our new collaborator Myriam Gendron, creator of the site Just food< /em>, offers a low-cost menu every week from the best grocery discounts of the week.

 

Christmas is a month away, but the flyers have inspired me to give you this advice this week: if you can, start buying your recipe necessities (which will last until then, of course) when the discount is worth it. the penalty. Why talk about it so soon? Because during holidays and special events, grocers know that they don't really need to entice you with the bargain of the year and that you're going to have to make some purchases, whatever the price…and the total bill can add up quickly! Add to that when everyone is cooking the same thing, the shelves can also be empty quite quickly.

You absolutely need canned condensed soup or colorful crispy cereals for your recipes ? It's worth browsing through the flyers and spotting the good deals to avoid headaches when the time comes.

This week, pork tenderloin is $3.77/lb at Super C and pork half-loin at $1.99/lb at Maxi and Provigo. These cuts are perfect when cut into cubes, which can be much more advantageous and economical than ready-made ones at the grocery store. If the pieces of meat are nice (and not too fat), you could buy some in advance and use them for a classic tourtière or even for a stew, it will keep well in the freezer until then! 

Happy Meals…and Bon Appetite!
