Let's Do Brunch!


What's up with you? Plenty over here in the Ozarks...#3 and me are going on the Northwest Arkansas Alzheimer's Memory Walk tomorrow, Saturday the 12th of September http://nwawalk.kintera.org/diannehocut. This annual event and fundraiser has been gearing up for months and walk day is finally here! Because of this event, friends are coming to visit at the Turquoise House and I want to have the most flowing and flexible menu possible. We'll be here, there, and everywhere this week end...so hope you can join us in some way at the Memory Walk, 8:00am, Arvest Ballpark off Interstate 540 N in Springdale or as usual at Brunch in the Ozarks. Remember to shop (copy this page and use as your shopping list) with your green on and be safe whatever you do!
