It’s the season where you read about pumpkins, scarecrows and leaves. One of my favorite titles. I found that I love along with my nephews, revolves around bats. I know, yikes! Bats–Too scary! Not this one. It isn’t a Halloween book, it is just a wonderfully entertaining children’s story written and illustrated by Brian Lies called, Bats at the Library. These adorable characters discover an open window at the library and find a whole new world filled with books for everyone’s reading taste. The illustrations are kid-friendly and the story just might inspire your own little ones to explore their library!
I have always had a taste for vegetables that most people don’t favor. I like broccoli, cauliflower, and asparagus so when I found tofu, I was hooked on trying to find new and better vegan recipes. And I did it.
Quick and Easy Vegan Celebrations 150 Great-Tasting Recipes Plus Festive Menus for Vegantastic Holidays and Get-Togethers All Through the Year cookbook isn’t just for the holidays. I was impressed with her simple yet easy recipes for any cooking level.
The front of the book contains a list of simple items that most vegan kitchens all ready have from TVP (textured vegetable protein) to a good vegan choice of a Parmesan cheese—which I love! She even discusses kitchen equipment in her section called “Gadgets and Gizmos”.
Her recipes follow for each holiday including the delicious “Beer-Battered Green Beans” for New Year’s Eve and my favorite Thanksgiving “Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream”. This book isn’t just for holiday celebrations, it can be used all year long to create your own everyday celebration with healthy good food for your family!
Beadwork is one of those fun creative outlets for someone who wants to wear their art. I’ve been beading for the past ten years and I still love it.
I checked out my first book at the Owensville Branch library. I found all the information I needed to get started. I learned what a “jump ring” was and the difference between an “eye pin” and a “head pin”. There are beginner books and advanced titles, visit the catalog to look at the beading books available.
If you still are a little unsure on how to begin, signup for the Beaded Necklace Design class at the Owensville Branch Library at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, September 10. When you signup you will get a list of supplies you need to bring to class. I hope to see you there!
