If you haven't shopped at your local Jewel-Osco grocery store in a while, be prepared for a new customer service initiative that you may, or may not, appreciate. It's called the "cart-to-car" service, according to couponsinthenews.com, and whether you want the help or not, your bagger is expected to follow you and your cart out to your vehicle. The service is mandatory, though Jewel-Osco denies it has anyting to do with keeping track of shopping carts, according to Coupons in the News.

As you rush out madly for last minute supplies for Christmas dinner, area grocery stores will be there with their doors open for you — at least early in the day on Christmas Eve. They’ll be closing their doors early that day, so you’ll probably want to head out early for your supplies.

Family meals do not have to be stressful! Make a simple and delicious meal with some of these trusted favorites.
Center Stage Certainly the star of many Passover tables, this brisket is as delicious as it is simple to make. I wish I could remember which food magazine instructed me to load my slow cooker in this order: 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced; 2 garlic cloves, smashed; 4 lb. brisket, trimmed; salt and pepper to taste; 2 C. low sodium chicken broth. Cover, and cook on high for 6 hours. Mine came out so tender, it broke in two while I was trying to pull it out of the pot.

Garnish If you want to garnish your delicious brisket, look to the same source as our groceries. From Jewel, Barry's Matzah Salad uses red pepper, cucumber and chives to…

Local volunteers and organizations including the Northfield Township Food Pantry, Youth Services and Glenbrook South's student council, give back this holiday season by offering service and support to families in need.
With the holiday season in full-swing, Glenview residents and aid organizations are in the spirit, helping those less fortunate throughout the community. While the area is typically viewed as one of wealth and privilege, volunteers like Carol Cheng understand the need for support in Glenview. "The need is great, despite the general abundance and affluence of the North Shore," she said. "There are many hungry families in Glenview that usually go unnoticed. There is a dangerous misconception that such problems exist only downtown in urban, underprivileged, under-resourced areas of the city." Northfield Township Food Pantry Serves Record Number of Families Preparations for the holiday season are well under way at the Northfield Township Food…
