I get grass fed beef for $5-$6/lb here, you lucky kook.
Don't care too much for macadamias. I find them too bland - a good thing, I suppose, considering how expensive they are.
I think they're so delicious....basically my favorite nut I only buy them when they're on sale because they're so much tastier than olive oil in my salads.
Almonds are so boring. I get tired of them after the first oz (although I will keep eating them just because they're addictive XD) but I could keep eating macadamias after the first half pound.
I can get local grass fed ground beef for 4.25, but macadamias need to be imported - there are none to be found in this town. I have one bag left that were brought back by a friend from Hawaii. I'm saving them to make some nut bars with during the Christmas holidays 'cause both of my sons will be home!
If you've never had them, and you think they are too expensive, ask for them as a gift. Then they're a treat.

Met my 2012 goals by losing 24 pounds.
2013 goals are to get fit and strong!
Just bought four pounds at a macadamia nut packing factory in Hawaii. It came to about $8.00 per pound for this quantity. Yum!

This is why I love Hawaii. Local coffee, local grass fed beef ($4-$7/lb), local mac nuts, local organic Okinawan sweet potatoes ($1.40/lb), fresh ahi....
