I got lucky today. I have been trying to find pork bellies locally but not having any luck. Usually I sit in the car when my wife goes to Whole Foods because I don't have much in common with the regular clientel. But for some reason I was feeling adventurous and wandered in with her. At the meat dept I noticed they had some small cut up bits of belly in the display case. I asked how much a whole belly costs and the counter person went in back to ask. She came back out and said $1.99/lbs but it won't be for long. I asked why and it turned out that they normally don't stock bellies but a customer had ordered a case but never came to get it and Whole Foods was selling it under their cost to get rid of it. I asked her how much she had and then bought it all. Bacon here I come! I ended up with just under 35 lbs of bellies. Gotta go buy some bacon hangers now.
