The holidays are here, plain and simple. Thanksgiving is two weeks away, yet someone here in the office said yesterday that Christmas is 50 days away. What?!

We talked with Brenda Duby with United Supermarket families about the holiday open house going on this Saturday and Sunday at all United Supermarkets, Amigos, Market Street and Albertsons.

Holiday dinners, desserts, floral arrangements, gift ideas, party appetizers, treats and more will be featured for sampling this weekend. If you're a rewards member, you will receive bonus points, too.

You can also pre-order your Thanksgiving meal while you're there. If you're like us, many of you will have to work over the Thanksgiving holiday and many will have to work on Thanksgiving Day. Take the suggestion my husband made to me and order your meal from United.

It's delicious and takes a lot of work off of your plate -- literally and figuratively!
