Garden Gourmet September 27

 We will be gathering at St. John's Hall, Thursday, September 27, 5-7pm.  After seeing all the bountiful crops at our local farmer's market and talking with a few other shoppers and the vendors, I have decided that we must do another  supper using some of their wonderful local harvest....squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, peas, beans, apples, beries.... we could go on and on.....we are so lucky to have this on our peninsula!
  So, think of something yummy using whatever fruits, veggies, grains, meats, fish, etc. you can find locally.  You're all so creative, I know it will be great.  Anyone want to demonstrate one of their recipes or dishes?  You're always welcome to do so.  Invite your friends and neighbors too!  The more the merrier!
 It helps knowing about how many will be there, so if you can, please let me know if you will be coming.  Thanks. Hope to see you there,
