4th of July Cookout

We had a great family cookout for Cooking Club this month. The O'Haras brought their bouncy castle and the kids had a blast! The guys grilled and it was nice to get together with everyone's families. If you weren't able to join us, come to our meeting next month on Tuesday, August 3rd at 6:30pm. As requested at the cookout, the theme for that meeting will be vegetables. Bring something prepared with your favorite veggies :-) Desserts too!! We hope everyone can make it.

Apple Salad

By: Ashley O'Hara

3 apples (I used red but you can use green if you like it more tart)
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/3 teaspoon curry powder (you can add more if you like a stronger curry flavor)
2 tablespoons orange juice
1/4 cup raisins (you could use craisins too if you like)
Mix everything but the apples and raisins in a small bowl. Cut the apples into small piece, about 1/2" square. Combine the sauce, apples, and raisins in a bowl. Chill if you desire but can be served at room temperature.
