With Thanksgiving behind us (see recipe below for a great-tasting dinner using turkey leftovers), excitement mounts for Halloween at RYRNS!

This week the Beavers and Chipmunks start making Halloween crafts, including pumpkin art and a garland.

The 2.5+ program learns how to paint with marbles.

A reminder that the General Meeting is this Thursday, October 14 at 7:30pm in the Gross Motor Room (room 119).  See you there!

In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, potatoes and celery. Cook until softened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add seasonings and 1-½ cups (375 mL) stock. Blend flour into remaining stock, stir into saucepan. Bring to boil and simmer 8 to 10 minutes, stirring until thickened. Remove bay leaf; stir in peas and turkey.

Spoon into 9-inch (23 cm) pie crust. Fit second pastry over top and seal edges. Make vents in centre for steam to escape. Brush pastry with milk.

Bake at 400°F (200°C) for 10 minutes then reduce heat to 350°F (170°C) and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and filling is bubbly.

Makes 6 servings. Enjoy!
