what a great deal purrfect! i've found that about the best you can ever do with supermarkets is 50 percent off. to do it over 200 bucks is really something.

I was watching a show on the food network yesterday. It was about the "coupon queen". This lady had so many coupons that she collected and used that when she went shopping her bill came out to 172.$ using all her coupons she only paid $7.89. I couldn't believe it. she walked out with a buggy full of groceries and only paid 7$ for that whole buggy.

Wow - sounds like you did get two great deals, GB!

Nothing beats a real butcher, or fish monger! Sounds like you found one.

The ugly tomato is based on an old heriloom variety ... ugly in appearance but full of flavor. Personally, I don't care how ugly it looks - I'm interested in it's flavor.

Actually they are quite the opposite. They are full of flavor. They are not the prettiest tomatoes out there. They are not perfect round little globes, but as the saying goes, never judge a book by its cover. The Ugly Ripe is...well..ugly (OK not really, but they are not what you would call pretty), but boy do they taste good. I have not tasted a tomato with as much tomato flavor since summer when I grew my own.

Heck, they look like small, red pumpkins in that picture and I don't think pumpkins are ugly! And of course, still no Ugly Ripes in Central Ohio, at least not that I'm aware of. :roll:

I'm glad you found them, GB! My stores only ended up having them for a couple weeks. I told the produce manager how much I liked them but he said they didn't sell well--he thinks because of the name. Unreal. Like you said, they don't look that awful at all. And they're as close in taste and texture as you'll get to a garden-fresh tomato this time of year.

These creatures look like the organic heirloom tomatoes I get here in Eugene at the Saturday Market (open from end of March through end of December). The are marvelous, especially that yellow one.
