SOUP'S ON!

This is it, the moment Houstonians look forward to all summer; the temperature is below 75!!  My cold weather fantasies involve biting wind on my nose, rosy cheeks and coming home to a crackling fire. Well, it’s not quite that cold yet, but we can at least fake it by turning the thermostat up and making a big batch of soup.  Soup is one of the most versatile and economical foods we can make.  At the Fairbanks branch we have books that address all aspects of soup making and eating. Neil Wertheimer’s, Ultimate Soup Cookbook is a treasury of 1,000 recipes for soups, chowders, chilies & bisques; it’s the ultimate collection of comfort food recipes. If you’re fighting the battle of the post-holiday bulge checkout Judith Barrett’s, <

Happy Turkey Day!

I hope everyone has a safe and relaxing holiday and plenty of books and movies to read and watch during this time.  Don't forget that the Harris County Public Library website is available 24/7 during the holiday and that you can check the catalog, request items, check your account, and access the many databases available via the website.  If you wish to return items during the holiday, just use the convenient bookdrop located by the front entrance to the library.  Have a good holiday and see you next week!
