Mental Culture Club
PEMBERVILLE -The Mental Culture Club met Jan. 14 at Inga Offerman's home.
The 17 members present shared a memory of bread for the roll call.
Bread maker Chris Budke demonstrated how to make tortillas.  While the dough that she mixed up rested, she sketched the history of bread from the time of the hunters and gatherers through the 19th century.  Her favorite references for  bread making are "The Blessings of Bread" by Adrian Bailey and "The Way to Cook" by Julia Child.
Dessert was Budke's fresh whole wheat tortillas, and assorted sweet rolls made by Offerman and Nedra Sheets.

Mid-Morning Belles
The Mid-Morning Belles Homemakers Club met Jan. 22 at the home of Dorothy Karns.  
She and co-hostess Mickey Gerwin made a cherry-filled coffee cake and an oven French-toast casserole for a tasty breakfast.  
Gerwin opened the business meeting with a reading by Ben Stein entitled, "My Confession."  
The program folder for 2014 was distributed and reviewed.
Joan Slebos, a direct descendant of Martin Luther, presented a program on her trip to visit the area of Germany where Luther lived, studied, and was ordained. After a stop in Paris, she went to the Netherlands and met people who directed her to the home where her father had lived. Along with the pictures Slebos showed and with her humor and human interest stories, she made everyone feel as though they had taken the trip themselves.  
The next meeting will be on Feb. 26 in the Union Bank community room.
