Oh, fine! Now that I find out that they probably won't have them any more, you taunt me with these recipes? Evil . . . pure evil.

LOL In Connecticut, they have our Coleman Natural Sun Dried Tomato & Provolone meatballs right now. Only for another couple of weeks. Yes, meatballs are seasonal. Weird, eh? They're considered hors d’oeuvres, so they're around October-January or so. Sometimes, they're kept after if they sold extremely well, etc.

My favorite use of the Chipotle Cheddar ones are:

Pumpkin or Butternut Squash soup with it crumbled inside. MMMMM
or
As an hors d’oeuvre with a sweet/spicy glaze. I take sugarfree apricot jam and simmer it with a chili pepper until it's spicy and either dip them in the sauce or mix them in all together.

Well that kinda makes sense since it's grilling season, I guess - but meatballs? Who doesn't love a meatball in sauce year-round?!

For my money, you can't beat eggs and chicken thighs for cheap protein sources.

Chicken thighs (with bone and skin) are regularly only 99 cents at Costco. Delicious and moist. I save the bones (in big containers in the freezer), then toss in the crockpot to make a wonderful rich chicken broth.

If you have an Aldi's in your area, it's well worth going there for cheap eggs. Ours are regularly 99 cents/dozen. So much you can do with eggs - boiled, deviled, egg salad, scrambled, omelets, quiche, the main ingredient in oopsies...

LOL poor Ezra. He just wanted to know where to buy cheap meat. You learned a lot more than you bargained for, didn't you, little one?

That's what I would have guessed! We eat a ton of chicken all summer (grilling and barbecue), eat more beef in the winter (stews, crockpot dishes).

Funny.

Yeah, I would have to say we follow that pattern more too. Although I LOVE me some rotisseried chicken ANY time of year.

What's really good is when DH fires up the smoker and we load it up with chicken wings and/or split chicken halves. Man it's hard to beat that oaky smoky goodness!

Oh year! We have a regular grill and a Big Green Egg smoker -- we use that baby all summer! Pulled pork, Texas-style brisket, chicken, the best salmon recipe in the universe . . Yum! Can't wait for the weather to warm up.

Hello, weather? Vernal equinox was two days ago, can we have some more warmth, please?

Interesting!

Low carb was the first diet I ever did, so I always associate weight loss with foods like bacon, eggs and steak.

Gotta throw in my two cents! It was costing me a ton of money the first few weeks...and then I started on the eggcreams. Cheap, delicious filling. I have one a day for a meal, and it's seriously satisfying.

Next, I can buy a 10 pound bag of chicken quarters at Walmart for $5. It doesn't get much cheaper than that.

I also love to turn hamburger meat into hobo dinners (minus the potatoes). It's like a delicious moist hamburger steak, only no gravy, but tastes so good, who needs it. I buy the 5 pound rolls of meat also at Walmart.

Then I shop my local grocer for the meat of the week sale. Last week pork ribs were .99 a pound.

Oh my goodness. . .NO! These are generally a couple of raw eggs, some liquid (like almond milk, cream, coconut milk, coffee. . .you name it), some flavoring (I use DaVinci's SF syrups) and maybe some protein powder. . . plus all sorts of other toss-ins. Whip them up in a blender and WAH-LAH: Creamy protein shake w/ eggs, a.k.a. The Egg Cream.

Do a search using the search tool above for a bazillion threads and tons of recipes.

Love them!!!

Isn't eating raw eggs bad? T

They can also be eaten raw, though this is not recommended for people who may be especially susceptible to salmonella, such as the elderly, the infirm, or pregnant women. In addition, the protein in raw eggs is only 51% bio-available, whereas that of a cooked egg is nearer 91% bio-available, meaning the protein of cooked eggs is nearly twice as absorbable as the protein from raw eggs.[4] As an ingredient, egg yolks are an important emulsifier in the kitchen, and the proteins in eggs white makes all kinds of foams and aerated dishes possible.

I find it is cheaper, although you do spend more each time you go. I shop at Sams, but I don't have to go there very often.
