Community News:

On October 10, 2020 we had Bingo night at the SVIA hall. It was the first time the organization brought in a bingo flashboard and console for the event thanks to Doolin Amusement Supply. Everyone practiced social distancing, wore masks, and most of all we had fun. In some ways, it is important to make the most of it and to have fun by being smart and safe during these crazy times.
Doolin Amusement Supply is a small family run business that has been around for roughly 60 years here in Chicago. Over the years they have supplied local churches and organizations with bingo products for their bingo games to help raise money for charity. Doolin's has anywhere from your typical party decorations, balloons, bingo supplies etc. to party rentals like popcorn machines, cotton candy machines, snow cone machines, table and chair rentals and of course that bingo flashboard and console. We know there are not a lot of parties going on nowadays but it is important to help support small and local businesses during these hard times whenever possible.
Doolin's is located at 511 N Halsted St. in Chicago right off of the Grand blue line stop. Check them out sometime, they deliver anywhere in the city.

Butternut Squash Soup Recipe (submitted by Mike Doolin)
My wife, Hanna, and I really like making this on a cold day where you just want to stay in. It is really easy to make and really fun to make in the kitchen. For a garnish, I like to use pomegranate seeds. Enjoy and happy cooking!
 2 cups vegetable stock
 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
 1 carrot, peeled and roughly chopped
 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and roughly chopped
 1 medium (about 3–4 lbs) butternut squash, Peeled, Seeded and diced
 1 white onion, peeled and roughly chopped
 1 sprig fresh sage
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
 pinch of ground cinnamon and nutmeg
 1/2 cup canned (unsweetened) coconut milk
1. Add vegetable stock, garlic*, carrot, apple, butternut squash, sage, onion*, salt, pepper, cayenne, cinnamon and nutmeg a large stockpot. Toss to combine.
2. Cook on medium-high until the mixture reaches a simmer. Then cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 20-30 minutes until the vegetables are all tender and mash easily with a fork.
3. Remove and discard the sage. Stir in the coconut milk.
4. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. (Or you can transfer the soup in two batches into a traditional blender and puree until smooth, being extremely careful not to fill the blender too full with a hot liquid.) Taste and season with additional salt, pepper and cayenne as needed.
5. Serve warm, topped with your desired garnishes.
