Turkey wise, pecan foolish.

Fred Meyer, our local chain grocery, has the best deal. If you buy $100 worth of groceries, you can get your turkey, up to 23lbs, for free. We can easily spend $100, especially when I’m stocking up on ingredients for the annual Christmas cookie baking marathon.

I decided to be clever and break up the shopping into two sessions so we could get two free turkeys. Yesterday, among other things, we bought over 3lbs of pecans, for bourbon balls and turkey stuffing.

Today we went shopping again and damn! the price of pecans had dropped $4/lb. But we got our free turkeys.
