Spent the morning organizing all my coupons so that we can save money at the store. Hubby was quite impressed with the amount we saved today using the coupons along with the specials at the store. I told him that I want to do our shopping the first part of the week as it gives us more selection. The weekend everything is picked over when we get there and the butcher, fish market etc are not on duty, The butcher went to the back and brought out a number of packages for me to chose from when I made a statement that what was in the case was not that attractive. He has done this for us before and he knows that I am picky. He laughed and told us he was aware that the display was not the best and had been picked over. What we did not select was put in the display case. The produce lady was working when we went though and I commented that the leeks were not what I wanted. She looked at the two on display and went to the back and brought me out three beautiful ones for my special recipe. Ken just comments, that he does not know how I manage to get the special ones. I told him I just do not settle. If not attractive, I will not purchase.
