The Extra Ingredient
Entertaining with Small Bites

It's a great season for spending special times with friends and family. Best, we love the serendipitous gatherings that happen this time of year, nothing too fancy, just great food and conversation with others -- all in a leisurely mood.

IN THIS ISSUE, we're here to help you with some exceptional ideas for entertaining with small bites - delicious tidbits that tantalize and satisfy. You'll find Caramelized Onion and Cheese Squares, Manchego Quesadillas with Roasted Red Peppers and Onions, a fabulous Herbed White Bean Spread, and three different Palmiers, appetizer-sized. 'Tis the season to share and treasure good times with others! Our best to you this festive season!

Bring a Bag!
Bring a Bag, Feed a Family

We'd like to take this time to THANK YOU for making our Bring a Bag, Feed a Family campaign such a huge success! Since beginning the effort in late 2009, you have helped us raise over $1821.65 for the Greensboro Urban Ministry's Food Bank!

Every time a customer makes a purchase and brings their own shopping bag, a dime is put in the "Feed a Family" cookie jar. The contents of the jar are then donated to the Greensboro Urban Ministry Food Bank. This allows us to help the environment by using fewer disposable bags, and also help Greensboro's families in need! 
Thank You for Shopping Locally
