    I started making my own veg burgers, soy "lunch meat" (from the Vegandad Blog), soysages (also VeganDad).. and chickpea cutlets from Veganomicon. I am amazed at how much cheaper it is to make them at home. Does anyone have any recipes to share for other stuff? Thanks!

    I saw turtle meat in the manager's specials. It was marked down to $4.59 a pound. I found it odd. But it appears to a delicacy as I found on the net 5 pounds for $95 dollars. Who knew?
