Fran's Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies
Fran's Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies

South Dakota Web Roundup

Oct 28, 2011

Here we are at the end of October already! Many are gearing up for Halloween parties this weekend. Michael Hay of Sioux Falls and Tim Keller of Watertown have been getting into the spooky spirit with some Halloween-themed art at The Illustrators Social Club.

Any Sioux Falls folk who are not Halloween fans might consider supporting urban agriculture next Monday, when the City Council meets to discuss the ordinance that allows the raising of chickens within city limits.  Tour de Coop has the details. 

It’s good weather for working in the kitchen. Fran of On My Plate made zucchini chocolate chip cookies recently, but forgot to send us samples. Does anyone have zucchini left?

If you’re not a zucchini fan, perhaps a hot bowlful of Sanaa’s Pumpkin Acorn Squash Soup would be more to your liking. 

As the days grow darker and colder, please remember our fellow South Dakotans in need of warm clothing. Here are just a few of the many clothing drives going on around the state.

  •  Aberdeen’s Coats for Kids (and other folk) Drive is taking place now through Nov. 18.  
  • Grace Baptist Church in Vermillion is sponsoring a drive Oct. 26 – Nov. 11, with collection sites at Hy-Vee, Jones Food Center & Walmart.
  • Main Street Square in Rapid City is running a Coat and Food Drive Nov. 7-14.
  • If you knit, crochet or sew, Friends of Pine Ridge Reservation has a pattern list of possible crafting ideas as well as addresses to organizations on the reservation that would welcome your handmade projects.

I see Fran also posted a recipe for pumpkin oatmeal butterscotch cookies. I can't wait to make them!

Seems like Fran makes her way through Yankton every now and then. Maybe next time she'll throw a plate of cookies in her car and drop them off. One can only hope.
