Marilu is appearing, once again, at the renowned Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope Pennsylvania.  This theatre has a rich history and the town is well loved for it’s culture and idyllic setting. This production of Vanya and Sonia, Masha and Spike stars Marilu as Masha!  Written by, and also starring, Charles Durang and directed by Sheryl Kaller (Mothers and Sons) this is a greatly anticipated highlight of the summer season.


Members check the Lounge, and your e-mail.  We will be having a private party with Marilu again this year.  If you missed it last year this is your chance.  If you were there last year we know you want to come again and reconnect with Marilu and the rest of the family.

Pamper yourself this weekend….whip up a batch of lotion bars with SPF 15.  Turn on your favorite music, pour a glass of wine and spend the afternoon creating these.   They make great favors at a shower or a luncheon.  Use them in a guest bathroom or keep them all for yourself.   What’s better than a little pampering?  Pampering yourself with your own creations.

To give you a “taste” of what the members are getting in class we want to share a recipe from yesterday.  This comes from Coach Kyra.  The DH she mentions is a carnivore so you know if HE keeps asking for it you’ve got a recipe that can appeal to everyone at your table!


If you’d like to get in on the fun click here:

Lentil Pasta
Serves 4

I haven’t made this recipe for years, and my DH keeps asking for it. I have searched high and low for the recipe, and just found it today, while searching through my recipes for this class. Hooray!

1/4 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 bunch skinny asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 15-oz. can lentils, rinsed ( it’s really hard to find canned lentils where I live; it’s no problem to use cooked lentils, but it adds another step)
1 15-oz. can tomatoes with basil (or with Italian seasoning)
1/4 tsp. Italian Seasoning
Splash of Bragg’s (Liquid Aminos all purpose seasoning, available at health food store). If you don’t want to buy any, just leave it out.
1/8 cup white wine
1/4 cup fresh basil
1 lb. pasta
In a large saute pan, saute garlic and pepper in olive oil. Add asparagus. Saute for 2 minutes. Add lentils, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, and Bragg’s. Let simmer, drain. If it gets dry, add white wine. Add basil, let simmer 5 to 10 minutes. Pour over cooked pasta of your choice.

Delicious, refreshing,  and a change from the ordinary fare !!   Add this Grapefruit Salad to you weekend brunch menu.  It’s gluten free and vegan but good whole foods don’t really need a label do they?


2 large grapefruit cut in circles, and/or wedges

1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced

1/4 cup fresh mint,  roughly torn

olive oil

sea salt


Combine grapefruit and onion in a shallow serving dish.   About ten minutes before serving drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt.
