Hello to summer! Since we last talked Gary and I have been to the fair, have helped in selecting a new recipe on the Collins Plaza Hotel menu with the Best of Beef grand prize winning recipe on page 4; and shared an afternoon with the folks at Econofoods. Anderson Erickson, and the Dairy Council, talking about dairy products for June Dairy Month.

We've been busy, as I'm sure you have. This issue has a lot of nice summer salad recipes to help on those evenings when cooking a big meal is just not on the schedule of things to do. We even included some "rhubarb" recipes to keep on hand for next years rhubarb season.

Correction: The Low Cal Hot Fudge Topping in the "Good For You" section of the May/June Bulletin should be ½ cup cocoa powder, NOT 1½ cups. We are sorry for this inconvenience and hope it did not cause you any problems.
