We have a very upscale butcher shop nearby. I asked DH to go there today and get 6 rib lamb chops. He came home with 8- the butcher said he had to take the whole rack which was 8 chops. Then I remembered that the last time I asked for 2 1/2 lbs of chicken cutlets they told me I had to take 3 lbs because otherwise they would have 1/2 chicken breast left.
Also remember that ground lamb and veal only comes in 1 lb packages. I think this is a scam. I can go to the butcher counter of my local supermarket and get the exact amount of whatever that i want. What do you think???
