I hope you enjoyed our Sumptuous Book Club today, featuring the book, “The Lemon Grove” by Ali Hosseini. As always it was followed with a brief cooking tip, this month with a lemon flair. The Sarasota Library System has many virtual book clubs for many ages that may interest you. Check them out on our upcoming events page.
Speaking of cooking, thank you to everyone who has submitted their lemon recipe so far. If you haven’t done so yet, you can pick up a submission form at either Elsie Quirk or Englewood Charlotte Library, or you can download a fillable .pdf right from our website (bit.ly/LBF2021). Thanks to the Friends of the Elsie Quirk Library, three randomly selected entrants will receive a lemon themed cooking prize. We will also use these entries to create our community recipe book that will be available for checkout at both libraries. There is no limit on the number of entries, but each participant is limited to one prize.
Here are a few to get you in the mood:
Blondie Bites thanks to Mary B.
Lemon Walnut Tea Loaf thanks to Iris S.
Lemon Creams thanks to Sue K.
Lemon Poppyseed Cheesecake thanks to Nancy M.
