I forgot to mention what ELSE I purchased yesterday! I popped over to Medium Rare at lunchtime to see if I could snag some of their pork lard and yep, they had some. I bought one container for now, but I later wondered "isn't this pretty much the same pork fat that I have in a mug in the fridge from cooking bacon??"
Anyway, it was $8 so I didn't mind trying it out. I asked (again) if they had any beef fat available AND THEY DID!! They had a few scraps to throw in a bag for me, NO CHARGE. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! Happy me drove back to work and put the stuff in the fridge.
On another note, I've been somewhat upset lately that our grocery store had run out of my plantain chip-crack fix (spicy flavour) and SURPRISE, hunnybun sneakily grabbed three bags that he happened to notice while there yesterday. The only three bags they had of the spicy. One bag was already demolished this morning. He's so sweet. :)
