It has been a very busy week. Exciting things are happening here at the library.
At the recent Lions Club meeting, the group voted unanimously to purchase a new computer and monitor for the library that will be available to the public.
The Library Board extends a great big Prairie THANK YOU to the Lions for their most generous donation. It will replace the outdated, unreliable system. Both patrons and staff thank you too.
The Fall Decorations are up and things are in full swing preparing for the Bräts and Brew Annual Fund Raiser November 3rd.
The tickets are on sale, the cost is $20 per person in advance or $25 at the door. Table reservations are available for groups of 8 or more. The new round tables will be used this year. Again there will be a special guest table for parties of one.
There are three “Brew” entries at this time. Come in or call the library for your entry forms. It is quite important to know how many entries in each category so table space will be available. Volunteers are always appreciated for setting up, decorating and helping during the event. Call the library is you are interested.
This is the “once a year” event that provides revenue needed to support the library. It is the only library from Moscow to Riggins that has no tax base.
Join the fun Saturday, November 3rd beginning at 5pm with the “Brew” tasting, Bräts and all entries at 6pm with Auction and Dance to follow. Returning, by popular demand, are the Coffey Twins and the Satins for your listening and dancing pleasure. Door prizes and surprised throughout the evening. See You There
German recipe suggestions
The kraut is in the crock and will be done soon!
If you are looking for German recipes to make for Bräts and Brew Fest here are some suggestions. Pike Baked in Sour Cream, Baden-Baden style (Badischer Hecht). Or how about Lamb Pot Roast with Cucumbers, (Geschmorte Hammelkeule mit grünen gurken) or Baked Whole Calves' Liver (Gespickter Kalbsleberbraten). There's nothing quite like Fried Brains or Sweetbreads (Panierte Hirne oder Kalbsmilch)
No single cut of meat is more beloved in Germany than the Schnitzel-a slice or cutlet, always from the veal leg. I know your mouth is beginning to water looking at these tasty recipes.
I won't guarantee you will get these, but there is bound to be some good ones at the Bräts and Brew Fest coming up on November 3rd. Get your entry forms at the library and enter your favorite dish. Cash prizes for the winners! You may also reserve a table for your group now by calling the library 962-3714.
