The Extra Ingredient
Talking Turkey

Thanksgiving comes early this year! This means there's a little more space between the many special days this holiday season. But, don't be fooled, the next few weeks will be flying by! We're here to help you plan ahead and enjoy this special season to the max!


IN THIS ISSUE, It's all about enjoying Thanksgiving, a uniquely American holiday. We start with a fabulous roasted turkey, show you how to carve it, then tackle a unique stuffing, and a dressed-up side dish of green beans. You'll find plenty of turkey tips and more tips for a delicious Thanksgiving!

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 $1735.15 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!
