Milford Fest Book Sale
During Milford Fest on May 25, the Friends of the library will hold its annual book sale in front of the library from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. The club has everything from books, DVDs, CDs, magazines, and more. Amazing discounts will be taken off all original prices. Any purchase goes to help out our community library and is very appreciated.
Jackie Franks, Kosciusko County Purdue Extension HHS Educator, presented the program “Being Creative with Cauliflower” on May 6. “We had a smaller than normal crowd attend, but the program was very informative and interesting,” said the library in a press release.
A serving of cauliflower, chopped in one half inch pieces, is only 27 calories. There are two grams of fiber per serving, no cholesterol and two grams of sugar. There are many ways to cook cauliflower, including in a stir-fry, mashed instead of potatoes, or curried. Franks brought riced cauliflower with some other vegetables and mashed cauliflower with garlic for the group to sample. She also brought a few recipes to try out, like, Mashed Cauliflower and Spinach or Keto Cauliflower Ziti. Becky Hostetler won a copy of the book, Cali’Flour Kitchen: 125 Cauliflower-Based Recipes for the Carbs You Crave, by Amy Lacey. Nancy Levernier won a copy of Cauliflower: Over 70 Exciting Ways to Roast, Rice and Fry One of the World’s Healthiest Vegetables, by Ox Telem. Both books are available in the library’s collection. The next nutrition program will be August 26.
