Thanksgiving Shopping

I was able to get a lot of the basic produce from the co-op. Forrest is picking up the Turkey's and some milk today.

I still need to go do a grocery shopping trip sometime this afternoon and then another one next friday to get the last minute items for the actual "Stump Thanksgiving" on Sunday.
