On Saturday, January 16th, the Denville Public Library hosted Kaitlin Bennett, dietitian from Shoprite, Wharton. While here, she spoke about “Super” foods and how to incorporate them into our diets. One super easy way to get them in is to include them in soups. She demonstrated two soups for us: Creamy Butternut Squash Soup and Turkey, Broccoleaf & Farro Soup. Everyone who attended was able to sample the soups and the conclusion was that they were both delicious.
Below are recipes for anyone who didn’t get a copy at the program. Be sure to watch the Library website, Facebook and Newsletter as we will have Kaitlin back to do another cooking program.

Presented by Glenn W. LeBoeuf
The enduring friendship between John and Abigail Adams is one of the great love stories of all time. Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution, it endured political intrigue, distant separations and the building of a new nation. Historian Glenn LeBoeuf will bring their courtship, marriage, family dramas and partnership to life in a way that reveals much about the early days of the United States.
Mr. LeBoeuf received his degree in history from Monmouth University, taught social studies for many years and has been a sought-after speaker for groups of all kinds for over 25 years. He was a Civil War reenactor who appeared in the films Glory and Gettysburg. LeBoeuf is a life-long New Jersey resident.
