The best part of fall is coming ... the Thanksgiving meal

For What It's Worth
Lead Summary
Rick Peterson, general manager

As you probably know, the season of fall is my favorite time of the year because fall means football and pheasant hunting.
Unfortunately, it also means Old Man Winter is just around the corner.
The cold weather of the past weeks reminds us it’s time to make the switch from lawn mower to snow blower. Rakes are replaced by snow shovels, and flip flops are kicked to the closet, with the snow boots front and center.
The calendar tells us the official start of winter is still a month off, so let’s not write off fall just yet.
There is still a lot of football yet to be played, and watching the Vikings this year has been nothing short of exciting. Some of the best pheasant hunting of the season is yet to come.
Let’s not forget about Thanksgiving. It’s just a week from today. The turkey might cost a little more this year, but the turkey is still the best buy in the meat department.
Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy is without question the most economical holiday meal and, in my opinion, the best.
The Thanksgiving meal also gets bonus points for being No. 1 when it comes to leftovers.
