It started with raw potato skins and ended with an amazing meal, all in attendance were sent home with, courtesy of Whistlestop Market. We arrived with a jar to bring caramel home with and left with potato skin appetizers, chicken and dumplings, apple crisp and homemade caramel. Thank you Whistlestop Market for feeding us! The class was free and we all donated money to the Cedar Mountain Community Center, at the request of Val. The Community Center looks amazing. Volunteers have been working hard to get it ready foranother year of community gatherings, potlucks and rentals. [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
Thanks to everyone who made it possible and attended. They say a picture is worth 1000 words so I thought I would share some. I will follow up with details from each day. For now, please enjoy some pictures.
