Thanksgiving bargains: D.C.'s blogs

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. Yes, I know, into every life a little rain must fall, but the sunshine is so much nicer. A lovely day outside, so get out and soak up a little vitamin D if you can.

We've got a fun selection of posts today -- from tips for where to find the best Thanksgiving dinner shopping bargains to a funny post from WashingTina about "morning people" and the rest of us. Ha.

If you’re headed out to buy your Thanksgiving dinner supplies this weekend, you’ll appreciate this handy little guide from the Van Ness Blog. They’ve taken the time to break down dinner staples by cost, by supermarket (Giant, Safeway, Whole Foods) V. handy.

Life in Mount Vernon offers this reminder of why it’s important to always be aware of your surroundings.

On Dogs & Wine, some great life advice from a confessed “Holiday Junkie.”
And, yes, it really does matter whom you surround yourself with.

If you’re not a morning person, but either live or work with one, you will appreciate this post from WashingTina.

Don’t forget the bake sale to benefit the D.C. State Fair. Plus it’s the last day of the 2010 season for the 14th and U Street Farmer’s Market. Borderstan has the details. H Street Great Street notes that the Farmer’s Market will also host its first annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. So bring along a little something to drop off.

Today wouldn’t be complete without at least one Harry Potter-related post. So I offer how to make "Butter Beer" from Harry Potter’s Recipes. (HT: Food & Think.)

That's it for today. Thanks for reading, and have a good weekend. I'll be here on Monday with more great posts from the D.C. area blogosphere. So be sure to check back.
