What's Cooking in Region 1 - May 2005
by Marghretta McBean

It's May!!! It's Taurus Time!!! Happy Birthday to all my fellow Tauri, with Special Best Wishes to Kenneth Garee, Jeffrey Kochosky, Jack Peregrim (Connecticut/Western Massachusetts Mensa); Harvey Nisselson, Alex Peters (Northern New Jersey Mensa); Jacques DuPuis (Vermont Mensa); Marvin Murdock (New Hampshire & Maine Mensa); Oleg Bayborodin, Lorenzo Perez (Boston Mensa); Traci Nagy, Fabian Binz-Scharf, Kevin Thompson, Salvatore Negri (Greater New York Mensa), all of whom share May 7th with me. Happy Birthday to Us!

Region 1 really has major representation in the PRP (Publications Recognition Program) nominations. While my group, Greater New York Mensa, garnered several spots, attention plaudits are also due to the Vermont, Mid-Hudson and New Hampshire & Maine groups, none of which is large. Both Angela Tremain and Claire Natola have created publications that are attractive and interesting, with diverse articles.Jeane Thompson's beautiful colour photographs which grace the covers of The VerMonter showcase the beauty of the Green Mountain state. Two years ago Kristine O'Malley-Levy gave Mphasis a total makeover, and the results are certainly award worthy. Best wishes to all the writers and editors!

    I was recently asked to create menus for people who are unable to eat solid food. Here's a refreshing and nutritious fruit soup that's great for everyone at breakfast, lunch or even dessert:

    Cantaloupe Soup
    Cantaloupe Soup
  • 1 medium ripe cantaloupe
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 Tbl. lime juice
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • Fresh mint leaves and melon slivers for garnish [optional]
    1. Halve cantaloupe and remove seeds. Cube fruit (remove rind!) and place in food processor or blender. Add juices; purée.
    2. Place yogurt in non-reactive bowl and whisk until smooth. Whisk in melon mixture
    3. Cover bowl and refrigerate at least 3 hours for flavours to develope. Serve cold, with mint and melon slivers if desired.
