First Things First….
***Most important reminder for this week…. Dan Sullivan’s Food Drive in our Town will be ending Friday, September 5th. I’m embarrassed to tell you that I had the best of intentions too, and still have not brought in our canned goods. Sometimes I think I work better with a deadline. Let’s all plan to bring our donations in during the next week. I’ll be making batches of Sherry’s Famous (or not so famous) Chocolate Chip Banana Bread this week too…. If you’d like one just send me an e-mail telling me you donated and I will have your Banana Bread waiting We’ll go with the smaller sized ones because if we are very blessed I might be making hundreds this week! Remember donation boxes are located at the Library, Police and Fire Stations, Senior Center and our Town Hall.
***Another Reminder…. If you need a Notary or Justice of the Peace, our Town Hall is ready and waiting to help. Please spread the word about our Marriages too. This week a lovely couple became the first Mr. and Mrs. to actually exchange marriage vows in our Town Hall since the ordinance was passed….. What an honor for all of us and our town.
Now let’s get right down to the “Tete a Tete” for this week:) I have so much to tell you and I still need to follow up with Part 2 from last week… but in just a short time we will be driving Mer back to college so I need to get “On The Road”
“Tete a Tete” is a French word that usually indicates a conversation between two or more people. That’s us in a way! I’m so happy that you are sending me in ideas for people and places I should write about. This week I received a call from Donna Andronico. Donna was calling because she had just enjoyed a delicious breakfast at Talia’s Eatery…a wonderful still rather new BREAKFAST and LUNCH place right here in town. It’s where Janie’s Uncommon Café use to be in the Papa Gino’s Plaza. She has enjoyed meeting friends there throughout the summer and wanted us to know how delicious every meal has been.
Of Course the food is very important when we go out but Donna also wanted us to know about the “Friendly, no Rush”, we are just happy you’re here service that she has experienced each time she has been in. Donna said to me it is a great place for a “Tete a Tete”! I responded with “hey I have never heard that before” that would be a great title for this week’s story!
Donna loves the egg white omelets, eggs benedict with or without the bread, amazing salads with everything you could want on them. Again, “Friendly, Refreshing, and Sweet” is how she describes each of her visits to Talia’s Eatery… I can’t wait to “Visit” myself!
Just a quick fun tip that goes along with food preparation and storage…. And I have to thank Facebook for this one….
If you’re like me when I’m cooking I use Foil Paper or Siren Wrap often…. Constantly it seems! Well for most of the 42 years that I have been in the kitchen and cooking, it drives me nutty when I’m trying to rip off the foil or siren I need. If I’m lucky it tears properly but that seems to be about 50 50 for me anyway. Sometimes the darn roll will even pop out of the box and roll away. That’s always a great moment… and I often throw away torn mushed pieces of each that just didn’t come out right for me…
Here’s a tip…. Look at this picture… check the end of your “box” most of them will have a little area on each side that you need to push in. They have always been there but most of us never notice them…. Push each in firmly…. Their job is to lock the roll in place so that it never pops out on you or causes a problem. It works! The only thing I did find is that on some store brands you may not have them. Check it out for yourself and please let me know what you think! How did we miss this… or maybe you knew too.
