Tri-County News Central Minn. C 01,1,1.11 Tidbits for December 2012 Only two more nights and one more day left of 2012. This month has gone by so fast. Shucks! The whole year seemed to fly by in spite of many long days. The last night of each year is one I look for- ward to all year. I get to "party" with some very dear friends. We follow the. "3 Fs party plan." Fel- lowship, Food and Fun! The snow that blanketed the area the 8th and 9th laid shining and undisturbed in my front yard. It looked so pretty. That only lasted for four days before the squirrels messed it up. Volunteers did a great job deco- rating the cafeteria for Christmas. The day of our Christmas din- ner was more special, thanks to the ornaments made by the Kim- ball Kruisers 4-H Club. Napkins were rolled in gingerbread boy- and girl-shaped rings. Thirty-two seniors were served a ham-sweet potato casserole, country-trio veg- etables with cranberry garnish meal, followed by Christmas cake. I received lots of compliments which I, in turn, passed on to the cook in Maple Lake. Thanks to Triple R's dona- tion to the seniors, four diners' names were drawn and they each received a ticket for a free meal at a later date. Brunch was served at 10:30 a.m. on the 24th. The cinnamon apple French toast bake was excel- lent. The brunch is nice as it allows the diners, volunteers and me to get home earlier in order to pre- pare for Christmas Eve. For the first time ever, the seniors were served by royalty. The Fairhaven Old Settlers queen and princesses volunteered and served on the 26th. Thank you so much. During the summer, a 7-year- old girl volunteered at the site with her grandma. She enjoyed being with us so much, that she gave up a few hours of her Christmas break to volunteer one day. For her age, she does an impressive job. Truth be told, she puts to shame chil- dren older than herself, as she sees things that need to be done and just goes ahead and does them. What would it take to get YOU to come to senior dining? Part of my job is to figure that out. Any suggestions can be made at (320) 398-2211, extension 13. A cookie deorating party was held at my house one Sunday after- noon. Bill and Andrea brought my grandson and two of his friends to help. The teenage boys did some beautiful, detailed decorat- ing. Feeling a little guilty at hav- ing non-family help, I asked the boys if they wanted to take some home for their families. They were delighted. Thankfully, I had baked plenty. During the month, there were numerous treats brought for the diners to sample with early coffee. ' The Foot Clinic will be held Friday, ]an. 4 The clinics will again be the first Friday of every other month. If you want a break from the winter weather, check the activi- ties listed with the Senior Dining Menus in the paper for the Beach Day scheduled later in January. As I was dicing vegetables for soup yesterday, once again, I thought of morn. She took the time to finely dice vegetables. I always marveled at how thin she could slice cabbage, too. I wonder if it was because she didn't have teeth. I don't remember her ever having her own. Sure, she had dentures, but she only put them in if she was going to a funeral or a wedding. Buttering bread is the food tidbit that brings my dad to mind every time I butter bread. Bread wasn't buttered unless the butter was spread over the whole slice and that meant to the outer edges of the crusts, too. For the many chil- dren who won't eat crusts, try but- tering it my dad's way and see what happens.
