Maggies Cranberry Almond Biscuits
Featured Recipe Title

Now that it's December and the idea of feeding two birds with one scone really does seem like the only way we'll get it all done, why not make it a delicious stack of them. And so it's our great pleasure to share this week's recipe - the winner of our recent Christmas competition. Maggie won us over with her simple, yummy, great-for-all-dietary-persuasions edible gift of choice. We all loved them. A huge thanks to everyone who sent in their favourite recipes, we had gingerbread stacks, pecan bickies and minty peppermint barks wrapped up with string. So here's to simplifying th e season as best we can, making room for a little creativity and generously sharing the good things we have.

Yellow Nectarines
Item 1
If only the wise words of Paul McCartney were true and we all did indeed live in a Yellow Nectarine. Oh what a world that would be and with Ringo as the lead vocalist to boot.

500g $8.50
1kg $15.90

Item 2
Not sure if it's because they've been particularly tasty of late, or if there's something funny in the water at the warehouse but we've been imagining a world of inner-urban houses actually built OUT of avocado toast lately.

$3.70 each
2 for $6.95
3 for $9.95

Item 3
Last week's pea-centric salad with radish and mint was a total winner, and if it whet the appetite for a fuchsia pink fiesta in your kitchen, these bunches from Joe's Garden are currently on extra special.

$2.95 bunch
2 bunches $5.50

Did you know

I've always admired families who do Kris Kringle (aka Secret Santa) - they're usually the ones with 10 or more children where it's economically and temporally impossible for everyone to get everyone else a present. With just one present each Kris Kringle seems to restore a kind of sanity back to Christmases - anyone who has witnessed a 3 year old throwing a Christmas-present-fatigue tantrum will understand.

I also love the Brothers Grimmish European tradition of Belsnickle; a mythical being who gives gifts to children who have behaved well but distributes lumps of coal (even more meaningful in a climate change era) to children who have misbehaved. The whole Belsnickle program has typically sensible Northern European in-built limits to growth; gifts are placed in shoes or stockings naturally restricting extravagance (although children with very small feet may rightly feel hardly done by).

Of course in the internet app age there are tools to help Kris Kringlers should you want to embrace the tradition. These sites boast features ensuring nobody will draw their own name (a constant danger) and options to make sure estranged relatives will never be in the situation of gifting each-other poison laced Christmas puddings or stuffed toys containing contraband just before a holiday in Bali.
