I have a pocketful of soda crackers, and I am heading out to Grand Forks Air Base for their soup supper this evening. My invitation is long standing. I am anxious to see what the good cooks out there put together. It certainly is soup season!
This is a week full of adventure, Shirley.
On Wednesday, I was tasting water for a contest among North Dakota cities. And on Friday, I am heading over to Tabor, Minn.
There I will head up a team of three judges to determine which area church comes up with the best funeral hotdish.
Holy Trinity Catholic Church of Tabor has tossed out the challenge. At least six area churches have taken it up. So the committee for Tabor Hall, right next to the church, is hosting what they hope will be an annual Funeral Hot Dish Challenge and Haunted Hayride fundraising event.
The hotdish dinner will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. And it will be followed by the Haunted Hayride. This will be a spooky trip along a designated path for those who enjoy a fun scare on top of their noodles.
The idea is to provide an economical and fun filled evening for families.
It seems imaginations run wild on these late October days leading up to Halloween. It will be here in another week. And I wonder how things are in Tucson.
I see Chef Greg LaPrad of Phoenix is opening a seafood inspired place called Sonoita Overland Trout in Tucson.
Love from your sister Marilyn looking around for Mr. Goodbars on the west bank of the Red River of the North.
P.S. I am thankful for readers who keep me on the straight and narrow. After I pondered the use of the word “berm” as a Grand Forks thing, I got a note from Alma Helm. She consulted two dictionaries and came up with simplified definitions. A curb is a rim, border, edging or frame, especially of concrete or joined stones.
A berm is the area edged or enclosed by the curb. It probably is filled with grass, stones or perhaps a flower bed.
So, anyway, we here in Grand Forks pile our leaves on the berms and hope the city trucks will be around.
