Thursday's Meeting (November 3, 2016)

Hi all,

Some of you will remember the hot, mulled cider and decadent caramel sauce that we indulged in last year around this time. For those who are new, let me assure you that you will not be disappointed. And, if you're interested in making your own, the recipes can be found in the October 29, 2015 posting. Bon app├ętit!

Meeting Postponed

Hi all,

Given the number of people away Thursday, and the number of people saying "I only read the first few chapters" (including me :( ), I've decided to postpone until Thursday, November 3. If you cannot make it, let me know: currently there are no sports or field trips on the school calendars. See you in the Library!

Book Club Bash

Thanks for a fun end-of-year party. 

As requested, here's the link to the chili recipe. I didn't use the types of beans suggested, but did use the same amounts. I also doubled the recipe but only used 1.5 times the garlic. 

Granish with lime taco chips, sour cream, and/or grated cheese.

Another fun discussion of the White Pine books we've read to date.

Congrats for meeting, and in some cases exceeding, the January reading deadline. Remember in order to qualify for an AMAZING prize, you need to read one more for our February meeting, two more for our March meeting and then one more for our April meeting which will, coincidentally, be on the day that the White Pine voting opens.
