Lunch at Rancho Chico

Well, another cross-border shopping expedition resulted in my finding unsalted butter for $1.50/lb (I bought 4), eggs for $1.56/dozen, and 1lb Tillamook medium cheddar cheese for $4.86! Isn't that ridiculous? I feel so ripped off when I shop at home. Another trip to the States is planned for the first week of December, when we'll go overnight to Spokane, WA, and do some serious shopping with a grocery run in Colville on the way back.

As usual, we went to Rancho Chico for lunch! I was surprised it was open on a Sunday.

As usual, I had the Chicken Chimi. It's just so good!

My SIL had the Seafood Chimi, which is packed with scallops, shrimp, and REAL crab meat. I've had this several times and it's excellent!

My brother had the Macho Rancho Chilli Burrito. He said it was awesome!
Yum!

Mmm, I haven't eaten breakfast yet and that food is looking pretty tasty. Wow, $1.50 for a pound of butter? What an awesome deal! And the great thing about butter in the states is it's wrapped in 1/2 cup sticks. They only recently started carrying those here, and they cost almost double than a regularly-wrapped pound!

1.50 for butter, how lucky are you, I usually buy 5 pounds for christmas baking alone, that would save me a ton. Cheapest Ive had here is $2.00/lb. Not too often that happens though. I admit though I will only buy Land O Lakes.

Your restaurant lunch as always looks delicious!
