Happy Memorial Day



Hope you're having a safe, relaxing holiday. If you still need to go to the store for burgers or steaks, this article from last Wednesday's New York Times may help you avoid a nasty case of sticker shock. (Registration required to read that, by the way.)

Have higher prices trickled down to St. Louis yet? I'm having a decidedly untraditional Memorial Day dinner -- we're in the middle of moving; no time to grill, sadly -- so I haven't had a chance to notice. Let me know.
