  • Memorial Day recognized troops for service, sacrifice to the nation

     Memorial Day is a time to honor our soldiers and remember those who have fallen.  This day also comes at the end of National Military Appreciation Month, an appropriate occasion to reflect on national unity and lend our support to those in uniform.  Although some have tried to paint a picture of the “one percent” over the last several months, there is a real one percent prepared to protect us all: the United States Armed Forces.

  • Garden fresh items make a tasty cauliflower salad

     I stopped in at the Carroll County Cooperative Extension office last week and was greeted with the most beautiful display of fresh vegetables. 

    You never know what’s behind those doors when you go there, but oh, the most pleasant people, displays and information is right there at your finger tips.  Jim Graves was the person showing his beautiful vegetables and you can try some for yourself if you go to the Farmer’s Market every Wednesday at the courthouse and Saturdays at Hometown Pizza. If you don’t go, you are truly missing out.

  • Don’t overcook pork; take a try at pesto pasta

     

    I so appreciate all of the positive comments regarding the pork rub recipe I gave you a couple of weeks ago.

    It was so funny because the very day I wrote the column, my daughter-in-law called and wanted to know if I had a good recipe for a pork loin. She wanted to fix a nice dinner for my son. However, he was getting a little tired of chicken and he wanted something different. Hence, my recipe came in really handy that day. The results from my son, “delicio.”
