The other day I was in Thrifty Foods. I already knew that some of their organ meats (for the dogs) were cheaper than other places I shop, so if I am in White Rock and am out shopping with my mother, I make a point to pick up a few more packages.
I am always on the lookout for variety, and was really excited when I found some bags of fish trim. They worked out to $1.77 lb, which is fits in my guidelines of trying to find meat for $2 or less. The best I have done so far is to get whole turkeys and chicken legs for $1.00 lb.
When I was going through the checkout, the cashier asked if I wanted the fish bagged seperately from the meat. I said no, it was just for the dogs. So she asked if I cooked it. I said no, they get it raw. Even the fish heads? she asked. Oh yes I said, and smiled to myself at the look on her face. She asked what kind of dogs I had. I wondered if she was expecting me to say a wolf cross or something similar. I smiled again and said two border collies and a lab. I left her thinking about that one:)
Two of the packages of fish looked like sockeye, really I am just guessing, as it was a very orangey meat, and the other one was a bit lighter. I hope it wasn't one of those farmed salmon, but that was the biggest head of all, and I don't think the farmed fish are allowed to grow as big as that one.
