Sweetbread deal at Apache Junction Wal-Mart (AZ)

For a bizarre set of reasons (that have no place on this board) I found myself in the Super Wal-Mart in Apache Junction, AZ. I have only been in one of these giant "Big Box" stores one other time in my life, so I wandered around the food section looking over the offerings. The stunning bargain of the day were the sweetbreads @ $1.97 per lb.

For tonight's dinner I made sauteed sweetbreads with a leek creme sauce that was deeeelish! Instead of the high (haughty?) price of specialty stores, these beauties were located with the Mexican offal offerings, tripe, oxtails, etc. I bought all they had and will return to stock my freezer. Shhhhh, please don't tell them that this is a smokin' deal.
