only thing cheap around here ever, is wild salmon in season. Thats the only time to get it too, fishing is highly controlled. I got large salmon heads for free and sometimes 50 cents per head. Piece of salmon was 8 euros/kg.

Right now, we're spending about 20% of our household monthly income on food. This is, from what I can see, about on a par with much of the world, where food comprises between 20% and 30% of the annual household income. A lot of my friends are... (more)
