Mondays meeting

On Monday evening we had member Kathy Roberts do a cookery demonstration. She prepared some quick and easy to make dips, followed by salmon served with couscous and a chicken stir fry. As a treat she had baked some chocolate cupcakes with ingredients like mashed potatoes, courgettes, mint and green tea.
Different, but all very tasty.
The competition was for an unusual cooking utensil.
