As you know from previous newsletters, we love any excuse to have a party and eat. Normally we start having a monthly potluck in September, but we just couldn’t wait! Duane (Office Manager) and Tammy (Shipping) grilled hamburgers, brats, and hot dogs. The rest of us brought all sorts of goodies. Garnet brought one of the desserts . YMM!! Here is her recipe…
