Local Harris Teeter stores have prime rib roast on sale through Christmas eve.
My phone is ringing off the hook, and emails are asking for my “Prime Rib” recipe from last year. Prime rib is a very expensive "company's coming" cut of meat, and typically it only goes on sale around the holidays. This year Harris Teeter has its standing HT Rancher Beef rib roasts for $6.99 per pound ($4 savings) with a VIC card. An upgrade to their HT Reserve Angus-USDA Choice standing rib roast costs $7.99 per pound with a VIC card. These prices only last until Dec. 18th. I purchased three of them Sunday — they freeze perfectly for that special Valentine’s Day dinner, or a birthday. As of right now, Harris Teeter has the only prime rib roasts on sale in the area. This has large, traditional prime rib bones on one side. It is typically …

Target, Kmart included in turkey day sales. Is it too early to start Black Friday shopping on Thanksgiving Day?
If you have a black belt in Black Friday shopping, listen up: Area big-box retailers are gearing up to dazzle bargain hunters even earlier this year — starting Thanksgiving Day, right after you put away the pumpkin pie. Walmart, Target and Kmart are planning all-out holiday shopping assaults. Why doze off in a turkey slump watching football when you can be out taking care of holiday shopping business? Walmart will offer, beginning at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, holiday gifts for the entire family while supplies last. That includes an electric scooter for $79, a steam mop for $39 or men's jeans for $9.50. (Why do mom and dad always get the boring presents?)

Twenty-fifth annual Santa's Ride benefits sick children in local hospitals.
Santa Claus rode through the streets of Fairfax County on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle Tuesday, followed by a motorcade of his helpers in law enforcement. This is the 25th year local law enforcement agencies have participated in Santa's Ride for Children. The officers collected presents and donations at police stations and other areas around the county which they dropped off to children at INOVA Fairfax Hospital Child Life Center and Georgetown Hospital Lombardi Cancer Center. The toys will also go to the Ronald McDonald House and Reston F.I.S.H. As a "thank you" to children in some FCPS schools who collect toys, the officers, many of whom were riding motorcycles, escorted Santa to each location on his list. The route included Crossfield…
