The South Arm Cooking Club for Seniors made the Best Cocoa Brownies for sales in a Christmas craft fair hosted at the South Arm Community Center. The proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Richmond Food Bank. It is a good course for the Senior Kitchen.
This Best Cocoa Brownies are not the dense type. It is light and cakey. The aroma of cocoa fills the kitchen when the brownies are being bake.
While there were 3 pairs of people working on the brownies, 2 other members made a Butternut Squash Apple Soup for lunch. Charlene also brought some bread to go with soup.
During lunch, we had an apple tasting and apple guessing game. It’s a fun way to know our apples. I can only distinguish Gala and Granny Smith. Can you name the apples above?
