I spent several hours shopping yesterday for my birthday dinner, and also picking up stuff for Thanksgiving. Turkey was 40 cents a pound at Walmart, I bought about a 13 pounder. It took me a while to find fresh beets, I finally found them at a local Farmer's Market where most of the signage is in Spanish, but the produce is mostly local and reasonably priced. I roasted the beets last night and we had them late in the evening, as a test of the recipe for my dinner tomorrow.
