Yeah, but beans are still pretty cheap when you think number of servings for the price.  Plus, they're filling as all get out! Plus, I love bean salad and now bean salsa so I usually have a decent amount on hand.

Brian makes the BEST chicken wings which he first brines (it makes all the difference when that meat inside is seasoned as well as the outsides) and then grills on a two-level fire on the Weber.  It's a Cook's Illustrated recipe that we fell in love with many years ago, even though it's a lot of work on the grill and in the heat!  But I wait til those puppies are on sale.  We occasionally see wings for $1.29 per pound and recently snagged some for $.89/pound, believe it or not.  Like you, I used to make chicken broth from the wings but not anymore!  Every once in a while we buy those baked grocery-made chickens to make chicken salad or for some other use and those carcasses are saved in a bag along with any chicken bones I end up having from other chicken dishes.  And, of course, he smokes chickens and turkeys often (you should check out the price of turkeys off-season down here -- yikes!) affraid
