Have you seen the price of food items in Neiman Marcus' Christmas Catalog?

Just received the Christmas Book from NM. There is a smaller catalog of holiday food items and, I have to say, I'm quite shocked. Prime rib roast for $244.00. OK--it is seasoned, but come on....the Holidays are all about home cooking for the most part. Brie en croute--up to $80. Eight little quails for something like $90.

If you could afford to, would any of you order this food? I dunno--even if I could afford to, I just could not spend that kind of money. I would rather spend it on a great meal in a wonderful restaurant--or on a great pair of shoes.

Pardon my narrowmindedness, but I love holiday cooking--I love everything from the planning to the purchasing of ingredients. The scents! The way all my kids have their special requests. Entertaining the guests--it is all so wonderful and magical.

What's your thinkin', Lincoln?
