Tree lightings were a blast, still time to see Santa, Christmas meal needs your help
Wow, what a weekend we had for tree lighting ceremonies.  Lindstrom had the luck of a beautiful snowfall during theirs. Chisago City and Lindstrom both had tons of people come out to kick off the Christmas season.  The kids who attended got to see Santa and Mrs. Claus and from the looks of it, they couldn't be more excited.  Thanks to both of the cities for doing such a wonderful job, it was great.

Warm you up, good for you too!
Millions of Americans, as well as in other countries, eat soup often. This staple has come a long way since the cavemen made the first-known broth-based meals dating back to 6000 B. C. Common ingredients at that time included the hippopotamus and other animal bones. Although they didn’t have modern cooking supplies, an animal carcass supplied the leak-proof pouch needed for cooking the soup. Don’t ask why the carcass didn’t catch fire while the soup was cooking! I’ll stick with a huge kettle or Dutch oven.  It is said the word “soup” most likely came from the Old English word “sop” meaning to soak up liquid or broth with a piece of bread. This reminds me of the traditional Swedish Christmas dinner called, “dop-eh-greeta” phonetically pronounced by Alice! Sorry about that my Swedish friends.

Neighborhood donates safety alarms to Family Pathways
As the president of Neighborhood Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electrical for over 20 years, William Sherk knows the dangers of carbon monoxide not only as a professional, but also with the loss of a loved one. “Carbon monoxide is odorless, colorless, and can be deadly. I want to remind everyone how important it is to have at least one working carbon monoxide alarm in your home. With regular check-ups of your heating systems as well as battery replacement every six months and alarm replacement every five to seven years, you’ll be well-prepared to prevent tragedy.” Sherk stated.

Rain couldn't keep the throngs from Lighting Festival; lots more this weekend
We went to the Taylors Falls Lighting Festival lastFriday.  You may recall the weather was anything but favorable.  It was a steady cold rain that basically never stopped until late Friday night.  We discussed how many people we thought would be at the parade and festival due to the inclement weather.  I assumed there would be a fraction of what is considered a normal crowd. Guess what? I was wrong.  It was absolutely packed.  People were everywhere, getting wet and not caring a bit about it.  It was awesome.  The parade was great, longer than I can rermember, and the lighting of the streets was so impressive.  Thanks so much to the committee members who work so hard just so the thousands of people who come over the weekend can enjoy it.  It is such a great event and it seems to only get better with time.

Many ways to upgrade turkey leftovers
I think you know what the recipes are for today….leftovers. It has been the same topic using leftover turkey for almost as long as I have been writing this column. If you are the hostess or host serving turkey to your family or friends, no doubt you have leftovers of more than just turkey. Yes, as I’ve often said, you may be having goose, duck, chicken or pheasant, etc. but you can substitute any of those in many recipes.
