My son went to pick up a couple Hormel Cure 81 spiral sliced hams for Thanksgiving at Safeway today. Nope. Nada. Coolers bare.

He was told each of our local stores got a whopping 25 hams each and they have no idea if they'll get any more. And FWIW their store brand and lesser quality stuff was also gone. Apparently this is also the situation with other local stores as well.

It's all crazy out there. You should try to find a turkey that's under 15 lbs. There will be only 5 of us so one bigger isn't needed. We had to go to 4 or 5 grocery stores before we could find one.

Pretty much the same for turkey breast around here…I even went to Walmart looking for one (and I would almost prefer a beating with a shity bus station restroom mop than to enter a Walmart)…no joy…Maybe the future will not be so bleak searching for a turkey beak (not holding my breath)

My sister and I went in Walmart last Saturday morning early. They had Butterball turkeys marked 98 cents a pound, but the tag looked wrong. We picked up a sixteen pound turkey and it rang up for a total price of 98 cents. The kid at self-checkout assist said it had happened several times already that morning. We might have told several folks to hurry and go get themselves a 98 cent turkey based on just the usual headache we normally suffer at Walmart. If we had had room in the freezer I would have gone and gotten another (bigger) one.

We said screw it (no ham or turkey) and went after some good assortment of artisan salami, cheese, and bread for CHARCUTERIE instead!

In addition to hard salami and capocollo we got
--Gentile Giant Wild Boar & Brandy Salame
--Stagberry (Elk - Pork - Blueberry) Salame
--Gin & Juice (Lamb - Pork - juniper berries and orange peel) Salame
--South Cider (Goose - Pork - persimmons and hard cider) Salame

We'll have fresh baked French baguettes and are still selecting cheeses.

At our local supermarket (HyVee) you get a free turkey if you buy a ham! Mrs. Sigmund will check out the deal next week.

Get a FREE turkey from Hy-Vee with the purchase of a Hormel Cure 81 ham. This year at Hy-Vee, you can get a free Honeysuckle White Frozen Turkey (10-14 lbs) (make sure to log in or select your Hy-Vee store to view the offer) with the purchase of a Hormel Cure 81 whole boneless ham.

Local "Rouses" supermarket had a flier come in the mail on wensday for sale starting thursday (9th) for a free frozen Butterball turkey (up to 16lb) with the purchase of a Smithfield spiral cut ham half for $2.99lb ... So yesterday afternoon the freezer box was full of turkeys and plenty of hams.. brought one of each home and placed in the freezer and fridge. ... Last year same offer and all were happy....... Personally I prefer the ham.. best part of the turkey is taking the carcus and any leftover meat into a pot and after boiling it down to use the stock juice and cooked down meat to make homemade turkey soup... ................................ drill sgt.

Safeway, among others, had a spend $xxx and get a free turkey. But again turkeys were unavailable.

As said in my opening post though, we were interested in HAM and not turkey.

Honestly have not checked out the ham/Turkey situation locally. I don't particularly care for either and I'm single and in no danger of hosting a holiday meal.

I'd as soon have a good pizza anyway.

Nice! I've been holding out for something like that, but the Publix by me was at $2.29 when I checked today.

"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."
