November Recipe Spotlight:

Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce

PREP TIME

COOK TIME

TOTAL TIME
20 mins

SERVINGS
9 servings

YIELD
2 1/4 cups


The recipe calls for a cup of water. You can easily substitute that with 1/2 cup of orange juice and 1/2 cup of water if you want to increase the orange note in the sauce (cranberries and oranges play well together!) You can also reduce the sugar if you want. Start out with half as much and add more if you think it needs it. If you use less sugar, reduce the amount of water you add as well.

Ingredients:

1 cup (200g) sugar
1 cup (250ml) water
4 cups (one 12-ounce package) fresh or frozen cranberries
Optional: pecans, orange zest, raisins, currants, blueberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice.

Directions:

Rinse the cranberries:
Place the cranberries in a colander and rinse them. Pick out and discard any damaged or bruised cranberries.

Boil the water with sugar:
Put the water and sugar in a medium saucepan on high heat and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
Add the cranberries, cook until they burst: Add the cranberries to the pot and return to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until most of the cranberries have burst.

Stir in the mix-ins, if using:
Once the cranberries have burst you can leave the cranberry sauce as is, or dress it up with other ingredients. We like to mix in a half a cup of chopped pecans a pinch or two of orange zest.

Some people like adding raisins or currants, or even blueberries for added sweetness. You can also add holiday spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, or allspice. If adding spices, start with a pinch of each and add more to your taste.

Cool:
Remove the pot from heat. Let cool completely at room temperature, then transfer to a bowl to chill in the refrigerator. Note that the cranberry sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.

Crafting for the Holiday's

Crafting for the Holiday's
Crafting for the Holiday's

It’s that time of year. Time to think about what we are grateful for and who we want to cherish with love and gifts. Here at the Atrium we get together weekly to work on our creative talents. It could be we are starting a new crochet project or simply making a new sign to hang on our door. Maybe it is a bracelet to give away as a gift.

However, It does not matter weather we are good at art or not, what

matters is that we are together sharing stories, escaping daily woes and watching our artwork come to life. Sometime we have to start over, and try again, but be assured the end results are always positive.

We hope you join us in creating fantastic masterpieces in our weekly Thursday 2:30-3:30pm art class in the activity room.

Intellectual Stimulation - Bette Midler

This singer, actress, comedienne, and songwriter began her extraordinary show business adventure in the late 1960s when – as a young woman – she appeared in such well known Broadway hit musical productions as “Fiddler on The Roof.”

But it was her experience singing in a New York City bathhouse that served to shape this woman’s persona, and remarkable career, for many years to come. And she continues to entertain us!

Harry J. Getzov
Entertainment Attorney, Artist/Personal Manager, Songwriter’s Son, and Author of the award-winning book, “gOLD,” will discuss the background and cultural impact of one of our favorite, and most versatile, performers – Bette Midler – as we continue our adventure
with the “Our Finest Entertainers” series.

Bette Midler: “The Divine Miss M.”

TJ

TJ, Resident of the Month November 2023 | The Atrium at Boca Raton

TJ short for Trefflie a French name. Oh my that’s why we call him “TJ!” Anyway, TJ has a big heart. The best way to describe him is “Lickety Split” as he is on task. If there is anything you need TJ is your guy. He has more energy than any other guy his age. We love his enthusiasm.
Some background on TJ is that he served in the Army and went to Korea for our country. When he returned home from the military, he started working for the railroad as an engineer. He drove the train for 20 years. And in that time he got married to Pam and had his daughter Evette. Evette now resides in Illinois.
TJ later divorce his first wife and remarries to his current wife Donna and gained two more beautiful daughters Shelly and Rhonda.
When TJ is not choosing music for us to listen to he is helping out anyone he can. Thank you TJ
