We have never needed an excuse to have beef with dinner. A large roast is always welcome in the Chilebrown household. Christmas time is traditionally celebrated with a Prime Rib Roast at our home. It also helps that our local supermarket puts them on sale at this time of year. Our local store has Choice Rib Eye Bone-in Roast for 5.99/pd on sale this week. It is usually a good idea to order in advance, because sometimes they sell out. This conversation actually took place when I ordered our roast. The names have been changed to protect the "Intelligence Challenged"
