What’s Happening Today – November 6, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife –
When the Salvation Army thinks about Christmas, they think about the many needs across Delmarva, the country and the world. The organization has always been committed to meeting those needs both during and after the holidays. You’re probably familiar with their annual Christmastime campaign. Just like many others, the organization has had to make a few changes – both in the name and how it’s operating. Katie learns about Rescue Christmas.
A grandparents influence is immeasurable. One group on Delmarva is making sure the young meet the wise. Americorps’ Foster Grandparents Program provides a way for volunteers to be role models, mentors and friends to children with exceptional needs. We talk with Director of Americorps’ Senior Foster Grandparent Program, Joyce Farrare about the impact of the program.
Now more than ever, I’m sure we could all use a helping hand around the house. Don Lee does that. You’ve probably seen the commercials but what exactly what Don Lee Margin can do? Lisa finds out.
While many of us are suffering political fatigue, there is one election that I think we could all turn our focus to. The 55th street Mayoral Race, featuring four candidates (with four legs): two dogs and two cats. The neighborhood’s kids are the electors and they even have a ballot box in which to deposit their votes. All in good fun, of course. Now that I’ve got your attention, it’s time to focus on the sweet faces ready to go their fur-ever homes in today’s Pet Connect.
In March of 2019, Studio D welcome a giant red mailbox into the studio. But this wasn’t any ordinary mailbox, it was magical. It’s a part of an effort called, Santa’s Letters Inc. Founder, Sean Malone, explains the magic behind this important effort.
Have you ever met someone whose mere presence just makes you feel good? For us, it was meeting 94-year-old Bob Cook of Salisbury – who’s set to receive the Boy Scouts Outstanding Eagle Award next week. He’s one of those people who, when you walk away from him, you just feel, well — good! It’s moments like that that we highlight every Friday in “All That is Good.”
Dreaming of Italian cuisine, but in need of a perfect side dish to go with it? Toss out the regular Garlic Bread and try this upgraded version: Pepperoni Garlic Bread. Trust me, you’ll want this one again and again. Check out the recipe below:
What You’ll Need
- 1 (1-pound) loaf Italian bread, cut in half lengthwise
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 plum tomatoes, chopped
- 1/4 cup pepperoni slices, chopped
- 1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions
- 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place bread, cut-side up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; set aside.
- In a small bowl, mix together garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Brush mixture over cut sides of bread, sprinkle with tomatoes, pepperoni, and scallions, then top with cheese.
- Bake in upper half of oven 8 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and edges of bread are browned. Cut into 1-inch pieces and serve.
- Instead of a loaf of Italian bread, you can try this with a couple of submarine rolls if that’s what you’ve got on hand. And you can garnish this with chopped sweet pepper or fresh herbs, if you like.
