Chef Lalanne and Josh tackle the tough subject of eating food without meat - for those observing Lent. Mushrooms, fish, rice, and other items are discussed. Josh also speaks with Denise about the Brule Gun Show this weekend, and with David about the Oregon Trail Home Show in Ogallala also this weekend.
Chef Lalanne and Josh both agree that flavor and "heartiness" don't have to be sacrificed for those observing Lent. Mushrooms, rices, grains, nuts, and of course fish are all ways to keep the heartiness in your dishes while going without the proteins you've become comfortable with (beef, chicken, pork, etc.). Think outside the box a bit, but also just try substituting mushrooms for your favorite protein - especially in pasta sauces and similar items.
Also this morning, Josh spoke with Denise Moorehead with the Brule Gun Show. It's taking place on February 25 & 26 at the Brule Activity Center. Much more than a gun show, it will also feature jewelry, crafts, jams and jellies, and delicious food for breakfast and lunch. Admission is only $3 and good for both days. A raffle will also be held, per usual. Saturday 9-5 and Sunday 9-4, the Brule Gun Show.
Josh spoke with David Carlson with the Oregon Trails Home Agri Sports Show, also taking place February 25 & 26. It's being held at the Keith County Fairgrounds in Ogallala on Saturday from 9-6 and Sunday from 10-4. A very eclectic and broad range of vendors will be there displaying their wares/services. Electronics, health, beauty, photography, home improvement and contractors, utilities, and more. There is no admission charge. And people can register for a 5-day/4-night cruise including airfare. The drawing will be held at 3pm on Sunday, and the winner needs to be present to win.
