COTTONWOOD Did you know that Aug. 8 is called “Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Night?” Maybe instead you could make your neighbor a casserole. Here is a good recipe for this holiday. Cube six cups of zucchini, boil with one cup shredded carrots and one-half cup chopped onion for five minutes, then drain. Melt one-half cup butter and mix in one package Stove Top Chicken stuffing mix. Place half of the stuffing mix in the bottom of a 9 by 13 casserole dish. Mix one can of cream of chicken soup and one 16-ounce carton of sour cream together, then mix in vegetables along with two cups cooked chicken. Spread on top of stuffing, then add the rest of the stuffing. Bake 350° for 30 minutes. Your neighbor will appreciate your act of kindness. You might also keep your car locked if it is on the street. Some of those sneaky neighbors might try to put some zucchini in there. I got some (willingly) from my niece yesterday. I really like it.

COTTONWOOD — There are three candidates for the 2018 Idaho County Fair Royalty this year. They are Emma Gehring, Sierah Poxleitner, and Rachel Chmelik. Good luck to each of you. Fair time is coming up soon so the 4H kids are busy working on their projects. It looks like harvest will be early this year, so maybe the fair turnout will be good.
