Recipes from our rescuers
Special to The Union
The Nevada County Sheriff’s Search & Rescue will be holding their 13th annual BBQ on September 27. And does this team know how to barbecue!
They’ll be cooking up some mouth-watering tri-tip and tasty chicken, too!
Wear your dancing shoes and get ready to move to the music of the Rough & Ready Fruit Jar Pickers.
Then keep on struttin’ right on ’round the cake walk.
Speaking of cake, the S & R gang has graciously shared a scrumptious recipe for a chocolate bundt cake. And just to be sure your sweet tooth is satisfied, they sent along a delectable oatmeal raisin treasure cookie recipe, too. They have even parted with their very own Teriyaki marinade!
The S & R BBQ will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Nevada County Sportsmen and will feature a raffle, as well as search dog and helicopter demonstrations.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for children four to 12 years of age and free for children three and under.
