The Price is Right!
OK, so I'm not Bob Barker and I'm not so sure that here in Doha the price is right, but you can play along if you so desire. I'm to the point in my Qatar stint that I just throw it in the basket, thank goodness, because some of these prices can be shocking. Note: I used to be that shopper that not only did the item have to be on sale, I had to have an extra "cents off" coupon. Ha, those days are long gone.
No Southeast Texas "Party Time" PORK sausage here, so Hillshire Farms BEEF sausage will have to do for that occasional chicken and sausage gumbo. Price: ?????
Butterball "Italian" turkey. Don't ask me why, I thought a turkey was a turkey. Anywho, the grand total per pound = ?????
One 1.2 kilo chicken, which is a whopper in these parts of the woods. At all of 2.64 lbs, my gumbos are a bit smaller these days. The price for this whopper rings up at ?????
Moving on to USA ground meat, which is a hot commodity (for me, anyway). It's not always available, but when it is I stock up. A one pound package will set you back ?????
Kraft pepper jack cheese weighing in at 12oz. Yep, this is the real deal from America...not an impostor like some. The price = ?????
Here we have sliced Provolone cheese from the deli. Pay the lady ????? per pound.
I'm exhausted from all those kilo to pounds and riyals to dollars conversions. Feel free to check my math and inform me of my errant ways. This was just the meats and deli section.
