In central New York beef prices have been down, I bought a whole eye of chuck for $2.49/pound with very little waste and this week several stores have had good ground beef under three dollars a pound. Whole turkeys and roasting chickens have been running .79 cents to .89 cents a pound. I haven't noticed much change in the price of pork.
This time of year the price of chicken wings, in my area, soars because of all the sporting events especially the Super Bowl.
It definitely pays to shop the dips!
