NOTES FROM OUR NOVEMBER 13 MEETING
During our “introductions” time, Erin Walsh asked what funny food combinations we all had.  It seems that most of them involved peanut butter.
Luke Markve then showed us how to sharpen a knife.  He displayed several types of knife sharpeners and spoke about the value of having a sharp knife.  He then shared the secret to his recent weight loss and spoke about healthful foods.

BUUFalo GALS
The women of the BUUF have been meeting the third Thursday of each month for lunch and conversation.  We met on Thursday, November 21 at the Perkins Restaurant in Buffalo.  We’ll probably skip the December lunch, but watch for more information about our January 16, 2014 get-together!
