shrimp on sale

Last night on my way home from work, I stopped by BiLo to pick up something to make for dinner. I was pleasantly surprised to find that bags of shrimp were on sale for $5.25 each. The sign said 2 for $10.49, and my receipt said they were each marked down $7.00 each! So I bought two and cooked them both last night (yes, two lbs of shrimp for dinner--as you can imagine, my man was in heaven). One bag just isn't enough for his liking, and two leaves some for him for leftovers since I won't be home tonight. Anyway, I just thought I'd share the tip that they're on sale in case anyone else is interested.

Oh, and I'm planning to post the recipe I used to fix them. They were so good! If you have The Joy of Cooking cookbook, it's in there. It's called something like "Becker's Barbeque Shrimp"--if you know me, you know I don't like barbeque, but this wasn't your typical barbeque. It's a bunch of spices all ground up together, some butter (I used low-fat), and some beer. I'll post the whole thing soon--just wanted to give you a little taste of what's to come. : )

Hey, that sounds fabulous. Anything with beer is a hit around my house. :)
Unfortunately, Bi-Lo changes their sales starting on I bet I missed out on that.

Really, their sales change on Wednesday? That's odd. I would have thought Sunday-Saturday. Well, they often run sales on bags of shrimp, so you could probably catch it again soon. And when it's on sale, they're some of the best prices in the area (that I've found).

Yeah, I think most stores run their specials Wed- Tues. Wed is the day that the newspaper has the grocery store sale inserts, which I guess is why their sales start then. I always look them over when I get them, but I seemed to have missed the shrimp part...But yes, Wed is a little weird.
