From the Board: Policy Governance PDF Print E-mail

by Tom Franks
January 2014

I have a history with Policy Governance.  As a member of another board, I helped that co-op adopt its first set of governance policies. Since election to the BFC board, I have adopted the sobriquet of “policy wonk” and have occasionally served in that role.  I had a conversation in the meat aisle last month with a Co-op shareholder about policy governance. It’s clear to me that policy governance may have a bad rap among some at BFC. Maybe a few words on this will help.

BFC Recipe: Bread Pudding PDF Print E-mail

by Chris Ellis
January 2014

(A great way to use up stale bread and have a delicious dessert, add some diced apples for a variation)

7 slices whole wheat bread, cubed in approx. 1/2 inch pieces
3 cups milk soy or dairy
1/2 to 1 tsp. cinnamon (depending on your taste)
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
Dash salt
1-2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Scald or almost bring to boil the milk in a saucepan with the raisins so they get plumped up. Mix the eggs and sweetener together and add the warm milk slowly to the mixture. Add cubed bread, salt and ½ of the cinnamon to the milk raisin mixture. Mix and pour into a small ovenproof dish and sprinkle with the rest of the cinnamon. Bake for about 30 minutes or until firm and lightly browned. Serves 6
