A Message from Morton

Thank you so much to all who participated in our various Great Give Back endeavors.  We collected over 700 items of food in just 2 weeks and cleared out over 600 pounds of trash while planting 2 areas of pollinator plants down at the dock in conjunction with the Riverkeeper Sweep.

Our main thrust right now is making sure that everyone votes.  There is still time to make your voting plan.  This year our library is not on the ballot but this is how you make your voice heard!

Please keep an eye out on all of our upcoming events.  We are announcing new opportunities all of the time.  Friend us on Facebook or like us on Instagram to get the very latest in updates.

Our curbside hours are:

Tuesday & Thursday: 10:00 – 2:00

Wednesday & Friday: 2:00 – 6:00

We are always available online!!

Tuesday’s Tip

Food and Cooking Tips       October 27, 2020

Do you ever stand in front of the fridge or pantry and take out what you have and say, “What can I make with this?” You are not on an episode of Chopped so don’t worry about beating the clock! There are even a couple of apps/websites for this very situation: www.supercook.com, www.fridgetotable.com, www.foodcombo.com, and www.myfridgefood.com.

For example, when I add my fridge’s ingredients Supercook gives me fantastic ways to cook green beans.

Fridgetotable is my speed because you just type in your ingredients and possible ideas and recipes and up comes a results list.

Foodcombo will also take your ingredients, deliver a recipe but tell you if you have an ingredient missing. It also offers tips on how to make your veggies savory, i.e. how to caramelize onions. . .

Myfridgefood is similar to Fridge to Table in that you have to build a list by clicking on the ingredients you have.

Explore the websites if you are stuck for an idea on what to do with what you have on hand. Bon Appetite Everyone! And don’t forget the most important ingredient is love!
