I have enjoyed some roasted butternut all week long. Then I was given a whole bunch of celery, carrots and onions so I made soup base and canned it up for when my husband wants some waterzooi, a Belgium traditional chicken soup.
I also got my fall garden in, lots of cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, swiss chard, broccoli, brussels sprouts. It will be nice to harvest if I can; most of my gardens get eaten by goats, pigs, geese, or bugs before I get the chance. I keep trying, keep working on prevention, and one day I will have enough to harvest for myself and to share.
I am heading out of town to attend my grandson’s graduation from Air Force Basic Military Training in San Antonio. But while I am gone Rodger has promised to greet each and every customer at Jenny’s General with an internal smile. Jenny’s General has Backroad Country snacks, pickled hog hocks, as well as Amish Wedding pickled eggs, pickled beets, pickled peaches, and spiced peach slices. Also, Troyer brand salami and cheese trays.
Jenny’s also carries souvenirs and gift items such as Equality and Lake Martin T-shirts, stickers and magnets. Additionally, there is a variety of beverages from traditional cokes, Sprites and Dr. Pepper, as well as healthier options like Zevia, DRAM, Olipop, and Culture Pop Soda.
Looking to add cute tins decorated with Alabama-themed artwork and filled with pecan shortbread cookies. New items are being added almost weekly so stop in and look around.
Don’t forget Equality Volunteer Fire Department’s First Saturday fundraiser on October 7. Come early for the bake sale and breakfast, browse the rummage sale, and stay longer for the lunch plates. All proceeds support our local fire department’s financial needs.
Equality Performing Arts Center’s (EPAC) next event is a live performance by several song writers for the EPAC Fall Song Writers’ night, Friday, September 29. Come enjoy original songs by local artists in a round robin style, each telling a bit about their song and playing it.
While it is not mandatory, you are encouraged to bring a dish of shareable food for our “Potluck,” and if you can afford to drop something into the donation jar for the music, it helps keep the lights on. The EPAC provides free coffee, iced tea, water, and fresh-popped popcorn, as well as some of the potluck offerings.
