{Specials} Roast Beef, Provolone and Inn Maid Noodles

Pictured above is our newest item here. It’s called Chow Chow. Originating in Lancaster, PA, this is a tasty way to get your vegetables. Just ask Dale. He loves it! Each jar contains Green Beans, Kidney Beans, Cauliflower, Wax Beans, Carrots, Northern Beans, Corn, Lima Beans, Celery, Onions, Red Bell Peppers, Cucumbers, Watermelon Rind, Vinegar and Sugar.

Not pictured above is Chat Chat. That’s what we do with all the new folks we see every day at The Country Cupboard. It’s great to meet new people and we get to do often. Of course we know you aren’t new to us, so bring in some of your friends or out-of-town visitors. In all the shops in Fairbury, we feel it’s important to shop local and build relationships with our neighbors. We want you to be a part of that, too!

Remember Employee Holiday Gift Boxes from last week? Here’s a sample of one containing Cappuccino, Christmas Jam, Chocolate Covered Bridge Mix, Yogurt Snowflake Pretzels, Deluxe Mixed Nuts and Deluxe Christmas Mix. This costs around $35, but you can mix and match items to make it personal for you. Remember to order by 10/31 for the best selection!

Oodles of Noodles

If you haven’t figured out before (or if you are just joining us), I love talking about food. I love cooking and eating, too. So I bet you can guess what’s coming next? I love Inn Maid noodles. I love how thin they are and their great flavor. They are perfect in Cheesy Noodles, Beef ‘N Noodles and with Stroganoff. This week save 50¢ off any small bag and 75¢ off any large bag of fine, medium or wide Inn Maid egg noodles. Try them and fall in love, too.

Corn Fritters

Yum! I love these things. They remind me of my childhood and what I call “fair food”. Most ingredients available at The Country Cupboard

1 cup dried corn
4 cups boiling water
1-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk

Rehydrate corn by adding to boiling water. Allow to stand for 20 minutes.Simmer corn until tender, about 1 hour. Drain off excess water (save for soup or gravy).

Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Combine the beaten eggs and milk, mixing well.

Add the liquid to the flour mixture all at once, and stir the mixture until smooth. Fold in the corn.

Drop batter from a teaspoon into a well-greased frying pan, and cook until brown on all sides.

Remove and drain on absorbent paper. Serve hot.
