CALL for ENTRIES: Heartland
Heart smart foods have become the norm in my house. I have scary-low blood pressure, and my doc says it makes me far less likely to have a heart attack or stroke. However, my husband is one of those string beans that can consume 5000 calories per day. If Captain Consumption is going to grow old with me, the meats are going to have to be lean, the vegetables plentiful, whole grains a constant and cheese…just an occasional indulgence. This next show is in the Heartland; do you think they eat any heart-healthier there? Let me know…
Check out this Call for Entries from the Merriam Parks & Recreation for the 16th Annual Heartland Artist Exhibition at the Irene B. French Art Gallery (Merriam, KS). A reasonable entry fee, great awards and low commission. This could be ideal for some of you…
