Holiday Planning: Classic Rib Roast

From retail stores to magazines to online merchants, Americans are being (not-so-subtly) reminded that the holidays are just around the corner. While planning for the holidays is sometimes looked upon with dread, this year it might just be a welcome diversion from political advertisements and economic news.

We are pleased to offer the traditional free-range turkey for your holiday meals, but if you are seeking an alternative, the tasteful simplicity of a standing rib roast cannot be beat. The ease of preparing this recipe will help free up time for preparing side dishes or relaxing with your loved ones.
