Back From The Grocery Store

Happy Sunday to all. I came home a bit ago from getting the groceries. When I left, it was still so dark outside. What happened to it being light outside in the morning? It gets so dark outside early at night. I bought a small chicken for Christmas. The prices went way up at the local grocery store. Almost doubled in price for most of the small chickens. We will be having the chicken, potatoes and biscuits. I also bought a Chocolate Satin Cream Pie too. That might be eaten before the holiday. I'll try to keep it in the freezer though. But it looks so good.

Meat is going up all the time, it seems that every time we go shopping it's more and more money for less and less things.

We have found a larger store to go to that has such good prices and they have a lot of specials, unfortunately it is about a 35 mile drive so we don't go there that often.

This happens every year and prices climb quite steeply at any time that specific items are in demand.

@Asylum I don't remember the prices of the chicken doubling before Thanksgiving. I was shocked to see a small chicken cost over twelve dollars. I bought one for just over seven dollars.

@Susan2015 I'm also surprised that chicken is so expensive. Usually turkey and ham is high in price this time of year

Sounds like you are all ready for the big day now! I don't blame you, you'll be busy with training full time until Christmas. There was so much left over turkey and ham from our Christmas party yesterday. My sister in law made way too much of both, but better too much then not enough.

At 7:15 this morning I opened the curtains and it was so dark, I think we must have a storm coming.

Every year, around Christmas, the prices go up, just because people buy more.

That is why I would prefer to buy earlier later later.

@Marcyaz I do the same, the only things that I cannot buy in advance are the fresh products.

@LadyDuck I ordered some fresh produce on line from a place in Mesa, AZ near where I used to live so I know when it arrives it will be fresh.

That will cost you a nice penny or two for a big ham for 25 people.

The dinner sounds so good and the stores do tend to double in price the closer to a Holiday it gets.

I hate it when the stores up prices just because of the demand for the holidays.
