Part of this has to do with food shopping which is usually a big ticket item. Beef is now so expensive that we're eating more chicken, occasionally pasta (trying to watch carbs), fish, and lamb. We were pricing various meets per pound and lamb came in right after chicken for cost effectiveness.
If we buy a boneless leg of lamb for $5.99 per pound for 5-6 lbs. at Costco we get 4 good meals. The first two are slices of lamb roast with vegetables and salad. Then the fun begins when Howard launches his tried and true lamb/mango curry. The little casa literally sings with wonderful smells wafting through as the dish simmers on the stove.
