Recipe of the Week

Apple Crumble Pie

Make Apple Pie, adding 1 extra tablespoon flour to the filling. Off the heat, add 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. Omit the top crust. Mix 1/2 cup flour, 1 cup oats, 3/4 cup each chopped walnuts and brown sugar, 6 tablespoons melted butter and a pinch of salt. Drop in clumps over the filling. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 25 to 30 minutes, until top is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.

If you could see what I see in Libby’s Cabinet Mountains, I see something different every time I look upon them, I find inspiration from them from my god given life, you too can find inspiration to. If you only take time to look upon them and see what god created for “you and me” Denny Hawk 11/8/2019

The mist of life morning dew, the rays of the sun as it kisses the mountain peaks of the Cabinet Mountains, The tranquil waters of a mountain stream, the falls of a river wild. A mother deer and her fawn cuddle under a tall pine tree. That’s what the Kootenai Valley means to me. Denny Hawk 10/13/19

I Walked
I walked the Mountains, I walked the deserts, I walked the plains, I wadded many streams, I crossed many rivers wild. When I walked the Kootenai Valley, I knew I found my home with myself and god. Denny Hawk 5/23/20
