From the Kansas City Star:
A powerboat race is returning to the Lake of the Ozarks in June after a taking a hiatus for several years due in part to the economy.
The Missouri Highway Patrol will have a public information meeting later this month about the upcoming Lake Race 2013 powerboat race on the Lake of the Ozarks.
The race, part of the Offshore Super Series, will take place on Lake of the Ozarks between Bagnell Dam and about the 3.5 mile mark of the main channel.
For a listing of race week events, see the Lake Race’s website.
The Offshore Supers Series will be held Thursday, June 6th – Sunday, June 9th.
Thanksgiving is a little over a week away!
If you don’t quite have your recipes laid out, here are some delicious side dish recipes.
Roasted Cipollini Onions With Sherry Caramel: Now, this recipe sounds fancy, but it’s not all that complicated. “This recipe for glazed onions uses a quirky sherry-vinegar caramel that has myriad applications,” says Leather Storrs, chef-owner of Noble Rot restaurant. “It holds well in a squirt bottle at room temperature and is excellent for basting meat while roasting, or to pretty up a plated composed salad.
Apple Almond Quinoa: The salad is the perfect side dish for a turkey, with the nutty flavor of the quinoa playing with the almonds and offset by the sweet tang of dried cranberries and apple. If you like, you can add browned sausage to this salad with the onions, craisins and apple to make more of a meal. When I do that, I always serve the quinoa with a spinach-garlic salad to green up the plate. This serves two as a light meal if you add roughly 3 ounces of diced sausage.
Double-Stuffed Potatoes: This is mashed potatoes taken to a whole new level. Your family and guests will be impressed and satisfied!
