A Selection of Recipes, Black Ties & Lullabies!

We realise that we have not kept up to our commitment of 3 recipes and a book recommendation each month, but now we are back on track and ready to give you more. We are now giving you recipes linked in with whats happening such as the weather, holidays and celebrations. And we are giving you newly released books that we think will get you interested for that month.

This months recipes are linked in with the Battle of Boyne and this apparent, but not evident summer month. So we have a starter for England named Cream of Asparagus Soup, a main from Ireland named Irish Chicken Wings in Guinness and lastly we have a dessert from Scotland, named the Summer Dessert. All three of these a perfect for a summers day and fit in with the occassion.

Next time for the August recipes, we will have the perfect, quick and easy BBQ food for the summer months.

July's book is a new release from Jane Graves named Black Ties & Lullabies. This story is based in Texas, USA, where the busy, working girl has a random fling with her millionaire boss and finds herself in a confusing and frustrating place in her life.

In August, there will be a brand new release.

The Barge Trip to the Fashion Show!

We have come to a quiet time at the Federation Office, so there is not much to update you on really.
Recently, we had a a Barge Trip along with an Afternoon Tea, where many members went crusing down the Leeds and Liverpool canal in heritage areas near Saltaire. And even though the weather was not the best, they still had a good time.
Next in September, Wilsden WI have a Fashion Show in St Matthew's Church in Wilsden. They will be showing clothes by Complete Clothing Co.Ltd. and it is £5.00 admission, which includes your refreshments. This is being held on Wednesday 28th September at 7.30PM. I know it is far away, but you got to get your tickets fast before they all go!

Next time we have summer recipes and summer books.
