With school just around the corner, meal times may seem daunting. Come and see MML’s selection of cookbooks and magazines. They contain recipes, meal planning, food prep ideas, how to freeze, and more. Here is a description from one of more popular cookbooks, Seriously Good Freezer Meals: 150 Easy Recipes to Save Your Time, Money, and Sandity by Karrie Truman, from Goodreads.com
“Don't Freeze Up at Meal Time -- Reach Into the Freezer Instead. Let's admit it: we all want to save time and money while still putting healthy and tasty homemade food on the table. But how? Karrie Truman, creator of the much-beloved blog Happy Money Saver, is going to let you in on a secret: the answer is freezer meals.
When she was an exhausted young mom, Karrie found herself serving processed or fast food at the end of a busy day even though she knew it wasn't what she wanted her family to be eating. Then she discovered freezer meals. Immediately, she had home-cooked, easy and delicious food at her fingertips and more time to spend with loved ones.
In Seriously Good Freezer Meals, Karrie shares 150 recipes photos that will change the way you think about freezer cooking. You won't find your mother or grandmother's freezer meals here (except lasagna, of course). Her recipes include Morning Energy Bars, Empanada Hand Pies, Coconut Cashew Basil Curry Soup, Smoky Grilled Louisiana Turkey Legs, and Layered Chocolate Mousse Cake with tons of vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options, too. Plus, she adds a bulk-batch chart for ease in making large quantities of each freezer-meal recipe.
Karrie gives you all the tools you need to become a freezer-meal genius: information on shopping, cooking, freezing, thawing and everything in between. The book includes beginner, intermediate and advanced meal plan programs to guide you in cooking 7 to 50 meals in a day. You read that right: 50 meals in a day. No more excuses: it's time to start cooking delicious meals that will have you feeling anything but left out in the cold!”

Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
Milford Memorial Library had a busy summer with the kids. There was something going on each day of the week throughout June and July. The programs included Facebook Fun, Sidewalk Shenanigans, large and small performers, storytimes, Grab and Go Bags, and two celebratory parties. The Youth Summer Reading Program had 35 supporters which involved grants, local businesses, and the city of Milford. There were 48 youth registered with 23 of them completing a reading-activity log and earning a SRP yard sign and prizes. Over 300 craft bags were given out to the families each week on the theme of primary colors. Thank you again to everyone who helped make the 2021 Youth Summer Reading Program a success.
