Pulaski, glinois 62548 Omce: 217-303-6159 Topper Ladies: Out & About... For the first time, our group trav- eled a short distance to Latham to The Korn Krib for our February luncheon-meeting Tuesday, the 17 . If you haven't been there lately, you might enjoy the short drive. The menu, currently being updat- ed, does not include several new items. Never fear... Charity Mile- ham, chef and manager, will pa- tiently and thoroughly recite - and - describe those dishes not listed. The meals were freshly pre- pared; everything served to us was hot and delicious. They are closed on Sunday and Monday, but all other days feature a dally special. Tuesday, it was a hot roast beef sandwich with choice of sides. Several of us had plates of wall- eye, which contained 3 large piec- es of fish, choice of potatoes, and salad. Perfectly fried with a spe- cially seasoned batter, and slightly browned, it was a tasty meal in- deed. Several salads were available and one lady reported hers was especially good with a raspberry- walnut dressing. Another enjoyed dining on mushrooms, prepared freshly in-house. Servings were very generous in size. Next, desserts appeared:i an- other winner! Prepared by Char- ity, she offered peanut butter pie, a gooey, rich chocolate dessert, and her very popular coconut cream pie with a stacked-high meringue/ whipped cream topping. Most of our group indulged, ei- ther eating it in-house or settling for the "take-out" route. Walt staff did a good job of car- ing for our table. Charity does most of the cooking.., and she's quite good at it! She has a long ca r reer in the cooking field. Her skills are apparent. Over coffee, we lin- gered for a short visit. " Co-hostesses were Madonna Boyle and Phyllis Hawk. Each at- tendee received a small red heart box of valentine chocolates. The door prize, a little pot of red roses suitable for transplanting, was won by Marilyn Edwards. The Korn Krib has a large din- ing area for special occasions, which makes it attractive for big- ger groups. We all enjoyed the meal and time together. Lots of winter blah days lie ahead...this is a time to get out and away from the "cabin" for a few hours of fun. Come join us next time for "time out". Arrangements for the March luncheon are not available yet. All are welcome. Submitted by - Pat Straumann Accepting Bids for 2015-2016 Mowing Seasons Mt.
