Picnic Safety Tips
is nothing more American than the picnic. Picnics can take on many forms,
such as the community picnic, friends and neighbors, tailgate parties, or
ball games. There is also one sure thing at every picnic-lots of good food.
The important point is to have safe and healthy food, not food that can
cause food borne illness. Always prepare and store food properly.
Summer is the time for barbecues and picnics.
The biggest party crasher
at summer picnic and buffets is food borne bacteria. You can't see them

Six-Course Dinner -
Menu and Recipes
came about because my husband, Don,
and I wanted to taste truffles. We
went to an expensive truffle dinner
at a local Portland restaurant, and
we were very disappointed in their
menu. They overcooked the risotto
(it was dry and not creamy) and they
barely put any truffles on it (not
enough to taste or even smell). We
decided, then and there, that we
must get some truffles and that it
would be cheaper to order them than
to travel to France. We invited some
"foodie" friends over to enjoy this
fantastic dinner with us.
