Looking forward to leftovers

We are getting closer to Turkey Day—how are you celebrating? My brother Teddy and I were going to go down to Queens to see my sister and two other brothers, along with my sister-in-law and her family. My sister said we had to get tested for COVID-19. So, instead, I am staying home and cooking for Teddy, my cousin and his wife. Yes, the four of us are doing a 20-pound turkey and a spiral ham. We are also having five different pies, brought not made. We all love leftovers. Sometimes leftovers are better than a fresh meal. When I make a turkey, I make turkey soup, turkey salad, turkey pot pie, turkey al a king...

I know I say this all the time, but please follow the Cochecton Youth Commission on Facebook at New Cochecton Youth Commission. They are doing something new all the time.

Sullivan West’s annual holiday toy drive is open until Friday, December 11. If you are a family in need or know a family who may need some help this holiday season, please reach out to Tara Brey directly (845/482-4610 ext. 2132); feel free to leave a message. Some of the stuff that are on the kids’ wishlists are Legos, sports items, makeup kits, journals, dolls, books, hot wheels, Star Wars toys, hats, gloves, scarves, art supplies, craft kits, trucks, board games and toddler toys. All monetary donations and gifts stay in our district. Find drop-off sites at the entrance of the elementary school or the Dollar General in Jeffersonville. There is also a drop off box at the high school mailroom in Lake Huntington, accessible during school hours. Please adhere to social distancing guidelines; all items will be quarantined before given to families.

If you have a special story or memory of Lake Huntington, send it to me in an email. I would love to share it with my readers. I have so many from when I worked in Pete’s Pub—those were the good old days.

Keep smiling and have a great week. You can email me at leeniebeans@citlink.net or call 845/252-3568 if you have any news. You can always check me out in community living.
