$4.97 a pound
I got to wondering again, this time when I was having dinner alone (Tuesdays are eating- dinner-alone-night for redduck) and noticed a Ralphs (Kroger) full-page newspaper ad. One of the items advertised was “flap meat”. I had never heard of “flap meat” although as I’ve grown older, my hearing has deteriorated, so it might have been mentioned in my presence- –I really don’t know. Anyhow, flap meat was only $4.97 a pound with a Ralphs card. My question is (and I certainly didn’t want to ask the girl behind meat counter about this), how much flap meat is needed to serve three? Now, I’m thinking because it’s flap meat it doesn’t make much difference how much each person gets as it would seem that a ¼ of a pound would do the job just as well as a full pound. (LBYM?) Same thing might hold true if eating out: why order the grand flap meat when the petit flap meat would be equally as unsatisfying?
You know, I'm not expecting many replies to this thread.
