Glenda Reardon, the Nutrition Director for Niagara County's Office For the Aging, has some great news to share with local seniors: The Office for the Aging lawyer, Gary Billinglsey, is going to visit the Gasport nutrition site approximately every 3 months. Seniors will know ahead of time by a schedule that he sends out...we'll post it here. He can do living wills, health care proxies and give advice on legal questions. This is free service...but anyone can make a donation for the service if they wish.


Looking ahead at September at the nutrition site (Hartland Bible Church)...

There will be no nutrition program offered on Labor Day due to the holiday.

The meals for the rest of the month are:

September 12th:

Lentil, Rice and Vegetable Soup/ Crackers
Polish Sausage on Roll Peppers and Onions
Mixed Fruit/Mandarin Oranges

September 19th:

Meatball Submarine on Roll Tomato Sauce and Parmesan Cheese
Garden Salad/Ranch Dressing
Hot Dog Roll
Cherry Whip

September 26th:

Chicken a la King over Rice
12-Grain Bread
Chilled Peaches

People age 60 and over should sign up for lunch the Friday before by calling Bonnie Tilyou at 434-7206.


Glenda has also shared this recipe for Waldorf Salad:

Waldorf Salad
Serving size: ½ cup

(New and improved! No Mayonnaise!)

3 golden delicious apples, cut into small pieces, with skin on
½ cup golden raisins
½ cup chopped cashews (optional)
½ cup chopped carrots or sliced thin or grated
½ cup finely chopped celery (optional)
¼ cup coconut
1 cup lemon yogurt

Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate. For best results serve soon after preparation. Healthy and delicious!

Note: This should only be made with golden delicious apples as they do not turn brown like other apples do. Coconut and cashews are optional.

Depending on the size of the apples, you made need more than 1 cup of lemon yogurt. Serves 6-8 people.
