Its Harvest time! The fall brings bountiful harvest and we’d like to encourage people to eat with the season. Seasonal fruits and vegetables are more likely to be on sale because they are in abundance in the fields and the grocery stores. Our local food pantries are getting a lot of dry milk to give out and are hoping that we can give people some recipes to show how to use it in the kitchen. This month we’ll be making Peanutty African Stew. We’ll be using the dry milk instead of liquid milk as the recipe calls for. Its an easy substitute in soups and stews!
We’ll also be having a nutrition ed volunteer meeting in Bend on Thursday October 22nd from 1-2. Please come and join us plan more ways to reach our community! Please let me know if you’ll be able to make it and if you want to bring a fun recipe sample to share.
