Enjoyed a fantastic lunch

Thank you to the Friends of the Canton Public Library for the terrific lunch to celebrate the start of CYS!

I participated in the Recipe Exchange

I contributed to a recipe to the Recipe Exchange kiosk near the reception desk; Spicy Ranch Pretzels and Tortellini Salad.  Yumm! 

I made homemade ice cream

The Book: Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream at Home

The Ice Cream Recipes Made: 
  • Carmel
  • Beet-Poppy seed
  • Chocolate
  • Roasted Pistachio
  • Strawberry Buttermilk

The Chocolate, Pistachio and Carmel were a big hit at my house, but my favorite was the Beet-Poopy seed.  It was sweet and creamy, but had a unique tang to it.  Be careful not to spill it on anything, it does stain. 

Read and tried out a recipe from "Not your Mother's Cassetoles"
