The date is nearing for the Clinton Women’s Taster’s Tea and guess who needs to submit the recipes she is going to serve that evening and share in this years event cookbook? Now here’s a local food event that is worth putting on your holiday sweater and heading out into the gets-dark-early evening for. Festive décor, happy folks, tons of new recipes to taste and the perfect way to enter into a glorious holiday mood. (Monday, November 25, 5-7 p.m. at the Clinton, Minnesota Memorial Building, $6 per person)
Daughter, Gina, and I took a road trip to Door County, Wisconsin. Heaven(or surely kind of close)! One of our favorite stops was to buy locally grown cranberries. Pull off the road by the homemade sign, bag up what you want out of the beautiful wooden boxes full of freshly picked produce, smile back at the dear farmer who was thankful to have us stop, pay the $8 for a huge bag and try to control our excitement. . .that’s how it went. Oh the beauty of cranberries; both for their taste and rich red color.
My dear little granddaughter, Drew, was kind enough to share her latest kitchen creation. Perfect recipe and perfect timing, Drewsibell! I’m going to cook up my own cranberries, instead of use the canned, and serve it over chicken bites as an appetizer for the Taster’s Tea. What do you think of that?
