We had an active weekend with our county Student Art Exhibit Reception. An attendance of over 100 people were present to see the students receive their awards. The following is a list of the recipients:
Tina Jarosek first shared this soup with me and then provided the recipe when I gave it a five-star review. The recipe first appeared in a March 2007 issue of Oprah Magazine. Tina made a few changes to it, and it is now her goto year-round soup. Enjoy, and feel free to add your own touches. — KIM McKINNEY
The roof fell in on the church I started attending. The collapse occurred after I’d been coming only a couple of weeks. While I have not always been a regular churchgoer, I thought this was kind of an over-the-top response to my unexpected appearance in church.
In last week’s Canadian Rotary Club meeting, Citadelle Art Museum Director Wendie Cook presented thought-provoking photographs from the museum’s newest traveling art exhibit, “Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams.”
One of the challenges of experimenting with new recipes is finding all the ingredients in our rural setting. Please don’t let that stop you. I used ground turkey in place of ground chicken in this recipe, and because I could not find udon or plain ramen noodles, I chose a wheat noodle called Coil Fideo. All delicious! —KIM McKINNEY
I WAS LOOKING AT MY HAIR in the mirror. “I think I might need a touch-up,” I noted to my husband, Peter. “Hmmm,” Peter replied, without looking up. (Which means, “If you think so honey. I honestly believe you might be able to hold off a week!” I can always count on Peter for a thoughtful response.)
