Reflections of a Local Poet

Eagle Harbor
I am white.
 I am the blank page of
A future to be written.
I am sliced almonds
Smooth and creamy.
I am the whitecaps rolling
In Eagle Harbor.
I am the pearl of
The ocean's treasure.
I am the flickering pale light of
A candle.
I am the fragile skin of
A newborn baby.
I am the milky white flesh of
Fresh coconut.
I am the soft drift of
Winter's first snow.
I am the cotton of
A crisp t-shirt.
I am faint dreams,
I am the soft angel of light.

Door County Half Marathon LogoWith Spring just around the corner, perhaps you're looking forward to those wonderful outoor Spring runs...the fresh smell of new grass, warm Spring rains, and the first flowers reaching for the Sun's warming rays!  Again this year, The Door County Half Marathon is being run entirely within Peninsula State Park on Saturday, May 1st, at 10:00 a.m.

Julie's Turkey Wild Rice Soup
And if elected
48 oz. chicken broth
2/3 cup uncooked wild rice, rinsed
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1/2 cup margarine or butter
3/4 cup unbleached or all purpose flour
1/8 tsp. pepper (or more, to taste)
2 cups half-and-half (can use whole milk, 2%, 1%, etc.)
1-1/2 cups cubed cooked turkey (or more, if preferred)
8 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled
2/3 Tbs. chopped pimento, drained
1/3 cup dry sherry
In large saucepan, combine chicken broth, wild rice and green onions.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; cover and simmer 35 to 40 minutes or until rice is tender.
In medium saucepan, melt margarine (butter); stir in flour, salt, poultry seasoning and pepper.  Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly, until smoother and bubbly.  Gradually stir in half-and-half; cook until slightly thickened, stirring constantly.  Slowly add half-and-half mixture into rice mixture, stirring constantly.  Add remaining ingredients.  Heat gently, stirring frequently; do not boil.  Garnish each serving with additional green onion and bacon, if desired.  Makes 8 (1-1/2 cup) servings. It's an amazingly rich, warming soup!
