In 1923, the "Sheridan Music Company" occupied the store and the Knights of Columbus were upstairs. By 1927, the "Heiman Commercial College" was upstairs - through 1954. After 1930, the first floor saw "The Melody Shop" and John W. Scott "Chiropodist." In 1950, Frank Zuck ran a boarding house and "Zuck's Home Cooked Meals."

October 2014 Newsletter from Sheridan Stationery Books & Gallery


Greetings!

October is upon us and that means that the season is changing. For those of you who hunt, we carry 7.5 minute topography maps and BLM land status maps that show public lands. We also have books on hunting, tracking and horse packing. And if you want a good book to tuck into your pack, we can help you with that also.

As the weather turns cooler, you might be doing more cooking than you did over the summer. We have some really nice cookbooks full of delicious recipes.

It's also not too early to be thinking of Christmas. If we don't have the book you're looking for in the store, we can order it for you. For those of you who need to mail out packages to friends and family, it's a good idea to plan ahead and order early so that your packages arrive on time.

  

Book Signing for "Wait for Signs"

by Craig Johnson

Thursday, 10-16-14

5:30 pm 

Craig's newest book will be released for sale on October 21, but you can stop in and get your copy autographed on Thursday, October 16th and then pick it up on the 21st.

Every year, Johnson e-mails friends and fans a brand-new short story on Christmas Eve. These charmingly informal mailings have sometimes arrived as Word attachments and, delightfully, even included a typo or two. Given the success of the Walt Longmire series and the Longmire TV show, it's welcome, if unsurprising, to see these 12 talesone of them is newpolished and published between two covers. While some of them have a heartwarming holiday feel, Johnson also takes the opportunity to visit the ghosts of his folksy but erudite sheriff's Christmases past and explore events outside the chronology of the 10 full-length novels. Old Indian Trick, Fire Bird, and High Holidays are funny mini-whodunits; Ministerial Aid and Slick-Tongued Devil show Walt drinking hard and grieving his late wife; Several Stations delivers an act of Christmas cheer; and Divorce Horse and Messenger offer a bit more meat at longer lengths. Read straight through, these once-a-year gifts betray a slight sameness, so sample, savor, and save these for special occasions. Lou Diamond Phillips, who plays Henry Standing Bear on TV, provides an introduction.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2014, American Library Association.)

"Circling Back Home: A Plainswoman's Journey" 

by

 Darcy Lipp-Acord                                

Visit with local author, Darcy Lipp-Acord, when she autographs copies of her book "Circling Back Home"

At a time when values of frugality, home, family, and care of the land seem increasingly absent, one woman looks to her past to create a life of significance for her family. Her search takes her back to the prairie of her grandmothers, who survived personal hardships and lived off what the land provided. Lipp-Acord mourns the loss of one child and celebrates the birth of others, all while balancing her own desire to put down roots with her husband's life as an itinerant ranch hand. Written over ten years, these essays compose a picture of endurance and grace as the author addresses her history and finds her way home. The granddaughter of German-Russian immigrants, Darcy Lipp-Acord grew up in Timber Lake, South Dakota, on a farm worked by three generations of her family. She currently lives on a ranch with her husband, Shawn, and their six children near the Montana-Wyoming border. She won the Wyoming Arts Council's Frank Nelson Doubleday Award for women writers, and her essays have appeared in several anthologies including Woven on the Wind.

Recipe from "Cooking with Avocados" by Elizabeth Nyland

Pork Tacos with Avocado Cream

Tortillas
2 cups masa harina
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 tsp sea salt

Filling
2 Tsp coconut oil
1 1/2 lb lean ground pastured pork
1/2 lb extra-lean ground grass-fed beef or ground chicken
2 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp tapioca starch whisked into
1 Tbsp water

Avocado Cream
1/2 large avocado
1/2 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
1 Tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp sea salt

Optional Toppings
Chopped lettuce
Diced tomatoes
Shredded cheese
Salsa

1. For the tortillas: Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl until combined. Roll the dough into 16 small balls (about golf-ball size). Using a tortilla press covered in plastic wrap or wax paper, press each ball until about 1/8 inch thick. Alternatively, you can lay the dough between two sheets of wax paper and roll it out with a rolling pin.
2. Heas a small nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. Place a tortilla in the pan and cook for about 1 minute on each side. Transfer to a covered bowl (I use a clean tea towel) to keep it warm and soft, and repeat with the remaining tortillas.
3. For the filling: In a large, heavy-bottomed frying pan heat the coconut oil over medium heat.
4. Add the ground meat and cook until browned, 10 to 15 minutes, stirring to break up clumps. Add the chili powder, coriander, cumin, salt, and garlic powder and mix to combine. Cook for 5 to 7 more minutes, then remove from the heat and stir in the tapioca slurry.
5. For the avocado cream: Process all the ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl.
6. Lay the tortillas on plates, spoon some filling on each tortilla, and serve immediately, passing the toppings and avocado cream at the table.
 
When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.
