It’s been a busy week here in the Club House–we have hosted a Book Lovers Club meeting; we have had surprise visitors, which we always enjoy, and on Thursday we took the day to travel to Central Nebraska on business. We did toss in some pleasure, too:
Visiting the roadside stands this time of year is wonderful! We picked out a watermelon, a red pepper the size of my head, and some squashes: a turban squash and a butternut squash. Everything looked so tempting and delish! There was a wide variety of tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchinis, melons, onions, squashes, and the workers all talked about the crops that are still being harvested.
The sight of new vineyards popping up along the landscape was a treat for our eyes, too. We visited a winery but they were so busy harvesting the grapes they were not available for tastings or serving meals. We’ll just have to make another road trip at a later date!
Soon Mother Connie will be posting a recipe for a casserole featuring spaghetti squash. It is sooo mouth watering in a photo I saw that I cannot wait to make one and show all of you. The spaghetti squash will be ready to pick very soon; you WILL be kept in the loop!
The squash featured in the above photo make luscious soups for fall. The recipe for squash soup has been featured here before but when a new batch of soup comes out of the Club House Kitchen, you guys will be the very first to know!
For those of you who have recently become Members of our merry band of foodies, we welcome you. We are happy to help anyone but especially we like to focus on those who use public assistance for their food budgets.
Those who use EBT cards for WIC or SNAP and those who depend on food commodities, food pantries, food banks, and the generosity of gardeners have told us repeatedly that the help we offer is really helpful and for that we are grateful. We hold no judgments and we are not out to sell you stuff! We hear, also, from people who simply like the challenge of wrestling with the food dollars to see how far those dollars might S T R E T C H ! We are painfully aware of how you are all living on a dime and we love you madly.
Your comments mean the world to us. Thanks for stopping by. We are working diligently on plans for the Cooking Class; you are in that loop, too! We hope it will be helpful for you in keeping your food costs to a minimum!
