What’s Happening Today – Monday, November 12, 2018
Today on DelmarvaLife:
We tell you about a battle being fought by a young Caroline County man. At only 21 years old, Quinn Gethers suffered a brain hemorrhage. As a result, he has had several procedures and has experienced memory loss. Quinn has a long road to recovery and has no health insurance to pay for it. That’s why there is a benefit for the North Caroline High School graduate. On Saturday, November 17th, Harry’s Restaurant in Denton will host the event. It takes place from 1pm – 4pm. To purchase tickets, call Harry’s Restaurant at (410) 479-1919, or if you would like to contribute to Quinn, click here.
The Santa Cause 5k & Fun Run returns to Dewey Beach for a third year. The one-of-a-kind fundraiser benefits Children & Families First, and it’s open to all ages and abilities. The event takes place December 2nd. For more information, click here.
After the loss of her teenage daughter, a Millsboro mother found herself broken. Now, as she tries to pick up the pieces, she’s trying to give back to others who are hurting. We sit down with Elissa Woodward, of Millsboro, to learn more about Katelyn’s Giving Tree.
We’re honoring our Veterans today by learning about several efforts to help make their transition from military to civilian life, a smooth one. The Hertrich Family of Automobile Dealerships participates in several programs that support our veterans. One of those programs is Hertrich Hires Heroes. We’ll also learn about Hertrich’s recent effort to “Snack Pack the Truck” in support of the United Service Organizations.
It’s Most Wanted Monday. Corporal Tom Funk, with the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office, stops by with this week’s list of men and women, police say, have committed a crime and are on the run. Your watchful eye and anonymous tip to Crime Solvers could lead to cash in your pocket if you spot someone featured on today’s list.
You know how it goes – every year, you tell yourself you’re going to get a jump start on your holiday shopping. Somewhere between work and family though, you get sidetracked. About Faces Day Spa & Salon, in Salisbury, to the rescue. They’re holding an open house from 5pm – 8pm on Thursday. DelmarvaLife’s Sydney Whitfield shows us how you can find the perfect gift ideas for everyone on your list.
We combine two favorite fall flavors to make one hearty soup. Food Blogger Laura Davis with Tide & Thyme shows us how to make her version of Mushroom Brie Bisque. The delicious recipe is below:
Mushroom Brie Bisque
2 shallots, minced
6 portobello mushroom caps, cleaned and chopped
8 ounces cremini mushrooms, cleaned and chopped
2 tablespoons butter
6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
2 cups heavy cream (or half and half)
8 ounces Brie cheese, rind removed and cubed
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water to mix with cornstarch
Heat butter in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Add mushrooms and shallots, and sauté until most of the water has cooked out of the mushrooms, about 5 minutes. Add chicken stock. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add the heavy cream, as well as the chunks of brie cheese.
Simmer the soup, whisking until the cheese melts down. Make a “slurry” with the cornstarch and water, and whisk into the soup to thicken. Bring to a soft rolling boil and remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
We have a heart-warming homecoming to share with you, coming off of Veterans Day. A local Army PFC, who recently completed boot camp, surprised his parents with help from the team at FurnitureLand and Ashley Homestore. It’s one of those stories that’ll tug at your heart strings, and one you do not want to miss!
