Plymouth's Second Friday this month will cater to the much younger residents of the area as Thursday, Friday, and Saturday is carnival themed.
"We work hard on all of our Second Fridays but we've especially work hard on this one for the kids," said Plymouth Chamber Director Betty Glaub-Gibbs.
Friday and Thursday the Plymouth Rotary will have their pancake breakfast until 1p.m. The club will be at their usual location on Garro Street featuring pancakes and sausages with a choice of coffee, milk or orange juice. The price is $6 for adults and $4 for children 12 and under.
Many people prefer smaller portions during the warm weather, choosing food that will not sit heavily in the stomach. As a result, finger foods, salads and vegetables are especially popular in the summertime.
Roasted or grilled vegetables can be delicious and filling. Whether served over rice or the "meat" of a sandwich, vegetables like mushrooms, zucchini and eggplant make versatile additions to any recipe.
