Getting a taste of life among the homeless

Spending a total of two nights at Ludington’s homeless shelter this spring by no means revealed what it is like to be homeless. I had an apartment and a bed of my own to return to, and no amount of time shared at the shelter would erase my knowledge of the only difference between myself and those around me: I had another option.

Dinner for $10 or less: Let’s go shopping in Custer

For those of you who live on the eastern edge of Mason County, this week’s recipe features what’s on sale at Bonser's of Custer. Pork chop pockets are a throwback to something I learned to cook at Girl Scout camp, which means they can be cooked on the grill (substitute your grill for the campfire) or in the oven. They are super easy, don’t need a pan and could be made with either pork chops or chicken breasts. Very versatile. Comments (0)
