Leanne Temple wins Food Fight at Waldo

April 6th, 2016

LeanneNineteen recipe entries featuring blueberries were received from WCGH colleagues to be considered for the Food Fight. Following judging, that number was reduced to two.

 

The Best Café prepared the two final recipes, Melinda Hellum’s spinach, blueberry, quinoa salad with blueberry lemon dressing and Leanne Temple’s berry topping/pie filling for tasting and voting.

 

The salad was a surprise to many. “I don’t like quinoa or spinach but I like this,” said one taster. There was no way though that the salad could compete with the warm blueberry and raspberry topping over ice cream. “How can a salad compare with this?” asked more than one taster. “This doesn’t seem fair,” said another, “a dessert against a salad.”  When the votes were counted, the berry topping won easily.

 

Leanne, who works in orthopedics, will see her recipe entered in the final MaineHealth competition on March 29, in Portland. Her recipe will be prepared by a catering company and compete against 13 other recipes, each featuring a different vegetable or fruit. Attendees, including a panel of local celebrity judges, will vote on which one takes the top spot. The winner will receive a $250 Hannaford card.

Advance Care Open House April 20

March 14th, 2016

If you suffered a stroke or heart attack or were in a serious accident that left you unable to communicate with medical personnel, would your family know what your wishes are about end-of-life care? Would you want to be resuscitated? Put on a respirator? Have a feeding tube inserted?

Or what if the medical personnel couldn’t reach a family member? Would they or your primary care provider know what you want?

There is a way to ensure that your wishes are followed even if you can’t communicate them. On Wednesday, April 20, from 9 am to noon, there will be an Advance Care Open House on the second floor hallway of the Cobb Medical Building, 16 Fahey St., Belfast.

At the open house, you will be able to ask questions and get the assistance you need to make your healthcare wishes known. There will be free on-site assistance to fill out your advance directives, which will allow your family to know and honor your wishes, if you are unable to communicate.
