This Friday is ‘First Friday’, February 1st! There will be a “Piano Party” featuring Matt Stokes from 6-9 p.m. Main Street is also sponsoring “Fairy Tales” at the Community Arts Building located at Ferry and Main. Come and enjoy Vevay from the inside and stay warm.
One of my favorite things about computers nowadays is ‘Spell check’. For those of you who are not that computer literate, simply put, the computer automatically corrects any and all spelling errors that are typed. For instance, I just typed “erroses” and the computer program changed it to errors. Normally, it’s a good thing but unfortunately sometimes, proper names seriously suffer.
In order to correct an earlier such error, therefore, I would like again to announce the birth of Harper Louise Patten on Sunday, January 13th. Harper, born in Florida and weighing in at 7 pounds, 10 ounces, is the second great-granddaughter of Mary and Tony Christiani and the first granddaughter of Felicia and David Lynam. A totally awesome baby with gorgeous hair! Congratulations to everyone!
I have another new friend! Frances Weaver called me this week and introduced herself to me. Frances was once the Moorefield community correspondent for the newspaper and as such, she tells me that she completely understands some of my trials and tribulations mentioned here each week. She currently lives at Swiss Villa and is 91 years young. I really enjoyed her call and hopefully we’ll meet in person someday when the weather thaws and spring returns! Thank you, Frances, so much for thinking of me!
This past Thursday, members of the Most Sorrowful Mother of God Catholic Church gathered at the Sullivan Senior Center for their winter dinner. Catered by Patty’s Reach, the food was plentiful and delicious.
The February meeting of the Red HOT Hatters will be at the Captain Hook’s Seafood Restaurant in Carrollton, Kentucky on Friday, February 15th at 11 a.m. Marie Cole has suggested that we carpool over and those interested in doing so should meet at the YMCA where they will leave at 10:30 a.m. Those of us living on the ‘other side’ of the county, might want to meet up with me at the Markland Shell and carpool over and again, we should leave no later than 10:30 a.m.

With the Super Bowl coming up, I thought I would share an old favorite of mine for some quick, easy and delicious finger food. Essentially, it’s sloppy joes inside a biscuit.
1 lb. Lean Ground Beef
½ cup of Chopped Onions
½ cup of Barbecue Sauce
¼ cup of Ketchup
1 pkg. Refrigerated
2 Slices of American Cheese
Brown and drain the ground beef. Add chopped onions, and your own customized mixture of barbecue sauce and ketchup. Simmer for 10-15 minutes. Lightly spray 8 of the openings of a muffin tin with cooking spray. Flatten each biscuit into a mini pizza and conform to each of the muffin tin openings, forming a cup. Each cup should completely fill each opening and extend up to and slightly over the top. Fill each of the cups carefully with the sloppy joe mix. Top each with a quarter of the cheese slice. Bake as recommended for the biscuits. Serves 8.
