Scouting for Food is the Wausau area’s largest one day food collection drive. This Saturday morning Wausau area Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts will canvas the community and collect food for the area pantries. Last year more than 15,000 lbs of food was collected in one day. If you received a plastic bag tied to your front door last week, please fill it with non-perishable and non-breakable food items and place it outside your door by this Saturday Morning. If you didn’t receive a plastic bag, please feel free to drop food off at the Neighbor’s Place and tell them it’s for Scouting for Food collection.

L Boutique Studio

This is a gorgeous navy/cream maxi skirt. I have two tops that coordinate with it — a cap sleeve cream shirt and the 3/4 sleeve with ruching and thin satin trim around the collar seen in the 2nd picture. Talk about versatility with this skirt when you have a cap sleeve for hot summer days, and the 3/4 sleeve for cooler nights or even into the late summer/early fall. Extend the shelf life of this skirt with two coordinating tops. This and many more springy items for Easter are all in stock at L Boutique Studio in Marathon. (It’s worth the drive.)

Closing Thoughts

I hate buns that fall apart when you bite into a thick, juicy hamburger. That’s why I use Italian Ciabatta rolls. They’re easy to make and once you know how you’ll never go back to store bought buns again. Read more on the Buy Local Wausau Blog:
