Likewise, in every supermarket in Canada, cuts of beef suitable for roast beef are terribly expensive. I go to the supermarket and look in the meat section for something I can afford. If my eyes stray onto the price tag of a roast of beef, what pops into my mind is the bit about the second mortgage!
PS It's "free-range" not "range-free."
I wish I could afford a roast of beef, but I've already spent the whole paycheck/second mortgage.
