Recent weather patterns have not been conducive to accessing food at the pantry for some people. As you can imagine, predicting attendance is near impossible. For some perishable foods, our 3 refrigerators (2 commercial) extend storage time but attention to what we have and ordering what we need is a challenge.

Potatoes are available every week as are eggs, milk and onions. Here’s a recipe for Potato Crust (great with any quiche filling):


4 cups coarsely shredded uncooked potatoes (about 4 large)

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt


In a large bowl, combine crust ingredients; press into a well-greased 10-in. deep-dish pie plate. Bake at 400° for minutes.
