I never met a chicken I didn't like, although a chicken in curry may be a first, because I hate curry. 

It was in a Tikka Masala sauce. As my wife doesn't like a hot curry, I added some greek style yogurt to tone it down a bit.

Love Halibut Gary, caught quite a few when I lived n Alaska. I like the 20-30 pounders myself, they seem to be the tastiest. I had to limit myself to fishing them in summer, ot because of cold, but because it was an almost 400 mile trip from the Interior of Alaska to the coast. Too far to go for much more than two or three trips.

That sounds good Invica. I love lamb, but it is much too expensive here. Speaking of expensive, just about any meat product is becoming too pricey to buy. I don't go into the store much, my wife does most of the shopping, but the other day I went in and was amazed. A beef steak had a per pound price of $10.89. And it wasn't just that one steak, any steak was that kind of price.

 I don't check the price per pound, or kilo in our case.  I just go by the price of a steak as It is only me who eats meat.  I usually buy a single sirlion steak.  21 day matured is cheaper than 28 day matured.  I usually buy it in Aldi which is the only store which my wife and I can walk to.  Sometimes I cut one in half and freeze half.

The lamb was packs of 5 sizzle steaks for £3.50. I bought 2 packs for £7.00 but we had a £1 off voucher for the lamb and a £9 off voucher if we spent £60 which we did overall.  That was in Sainsburys.  

My daughter always buys her meat at the local butcher as she believes in supporting local businesses.

@Jim_Alaska I checked the price of steak in Aldi this afternoon.  It went from £7.69 per kilo for thin cut steak right up to over £26.00, with all prices in between.  That's approx £3.50 per pound to over £12.per pound.  In other stores the prices may be much more. The conversion is to divide the price per klio by 2.20462262

I believe that the price you gave for the highest price per pound works out to $5.40 per pound. That is half as much as we pay here.

 

It's hard to talk about prices when our weight is by the pound and your monetary designation is also a pound.

I think the highest price would be about $14.00 per pound. Aldi is a budget store, so other stores may be much higher.  Some independent stores sell things in pounds, but they also have to show the kilo prices..  And milk.  That is a strange one.  Branded milk is usually sold in 1 or 2 kilo bottles and is usually filtered milk.  Store milk is pastuerised and usually packed in pints.  We usually buy 4 pint bottles but to comply with the law, it is also marked 2.27 litres.  (4 pints is 5 US pints.)

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
