Whew!! Now that the week from hell has turned into the Long-Awaited-Vacation, I’m back to posting! And just in time for a Thanksgiving-themed edition of Weekly Reader. Enjoy, and Guten Appetit!
For the Feast:
If you’re like my family, then a plain ol’ turkey just won’t do. Grandma never fails to serve up a delicious blend of Czech (and German) cuisine including rohliks, sauerkraut, dumplings (knedliky), babovka, and kolÃ¡Äe. If you’re feeling up for something new (or happen to be living in Germany), Linden has a mouth-watering post to give you some ideas (or just make you jealous of her dining options).
For the Table:
Creature Comforts has a really cute napkin ring/paper doilie set that you can download for free. Score!
For Family Bonding:
Stickers and Donuts has a hilarious post about an annual paper bag turkey contest….and are sneakily asking for ideas…
And Last, but Certainly Not Least, Friday is Annual Cross Country Shopping Day:
A few good tips to scout out the best deals
- Pica and Pixel reports that HOW is marking all of their books down to 50% on Friday.
- Design for Less has a great post about Black Friday deals.
