Having a beef with prices

     Remember when hamburger used to be a cheap meat?  

      According to predictions, beef prices ... especially ground beef prices ... are expected to grind through our budgets for the next couple of years.
        In a story online for MarketWatch, one analyst predicts that while steak retail prices could climb 5-10% in 2014, ground beef could climb 10 — 15%. 

Of course, food prices have many variables ... drought, rain, etc.   But at my house, beef may not be what's for dinner any time soon.
