November 2015


November is a month that just flies by for me. It's time to start thinking of family dinners and gift giving, especially if you need to ship those gifts to family and friends. It's a good idea to take a look at books that you may want to give as Christmas gifts. At Sheridan Stationery we have a really good selection on hand, but we can't carry all the titles that are in print. We are happy to special order books for you, and orders are placed a couple of times a week. Don't forget that we offer free gift wrapping as well! Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is waiting to help you find just what books you need.
The store will be closed on Thanksgiving Day so that the employees can spend this holiday with their families. We wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving as well. We will open at 9:00 am on Friday, and be open late for the Christmas Stroll on Friday evening.
Be sure to join us for this fun,family friendly event.



Thank you to those who are currently serving in the military and to those of you who have served in the past.

We are thankful for your sacrifice.

Happy Veteran's Day!

We will host a book signing and reception for local author Sam Western for the debut of his first novel. Stop by and visit with Sam and get an autographed copy of his book.
This novel is about the inextricable, twisted relationship between two self-destructive men. Ward Fall is a rancher in Wyoming, a family man with a strong and supportive wife. Eric Lindsay is a studio musician and songwriter in Los Angeles. Eric and Ward were classmates and friends at U.C. Berkeley. Their friendship turned ugly in an instant when, on a hunting trip, Ward accidentally killed Eric's twin sister, Gwen, with his shotgun, ruining the lives of the surviving two former friends. Ward wallows in guilt, depression, and alcohol. Eric's chaotic life is driven by anger and self-destructive behavior. Now, 25 years later, Ward invites Eric to come to his ranch and go on an elk hunt. The two former friends set out on a tense, contentious camping trip. Ward longs to atone for his guilt. Eric wants revenge. They are both armed with rifles."

Designed for use with groups as well as individuals, this workbook provides didactic information and guides users through questions and exercises to encourage increased awareness and acceptance of the self and the effects of mental illness. By actively responding to the questions, users can better organize their thinking and engage in behaviors that will improve quality of life.

Book Signing for "Between Two Tribes" by
Forest Dunning
Saturday November 28th 1-3 pm

Check out this historical novel based on true events by local author, Forest Dunning. Come in and get your copy. Autographed books make great gifts.

It is early spring in 1890 on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Southeastern Montana. The Cheyennes are starved for food due to Indian Department corruption, mismanagement, and a shortage of Reservation wild game. When hungry Cheyennes go off the Reservation to butcher white settlers' cattle and a white man is killed, tensions run high in the area around the Reservation.
A group of prominent Montana citizens join the Custer County Sheriff and appoint 27 year old Willis Rowland, AKA Long Forehead (Cheyenne name), a mixed blood interpreter as an undercover deputy sheriff to collect information about the neighborhood. Using his dual language skills and knowledge of both cultures, Willis finds clues on the white settler's murder, and also a gang of white outlaws using the Reservation as a rest stop. During his investigation of the first murder, a second white settler is killed, bringing the Reservation to a high boil which ends with a violent confrontation between the U.S. Army and members of the Cheyenne Tribe.
While this mystery is a work of fiction, the events are based on historical facts. This is a story which coincidently informs the reader of true Montana history and the 1890 culture clash "Between Two Tribes".

Lemony Green Beans

3 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 pounds fresh green beans, ends snapped or chopped off
1 1/2 lemons, plus a lemon half for garnish
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, more to taste
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the butter sizzles and starts to turn golden, throw in the green beans and sauté them, stirring occasionally, until slightly tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
2. Squeeze in the juice of the lemons.
3. Sprinkle in the salt and pepper, then stir to make sure everything is coated and combined. Cook for an additional minute, then turn off the heat.
4. Serve them heaped on a platter with a lemon half for squeezing.
Use olive oil instead of butter, if you prefer.
Add the zest of the 2 lemons along with the lemon juice for even more citrus flavor.
sprinkle in a little chili powder with the salt and pepper to give the green beans a kick.
Use frozen green beans straight out of the freezer rather than fresh. You might just need to up the cooking time by 2 to 3 minutes.

Butternut Squash and Kale

2 tablespoons butter
1/2 butternut squash, peeled and diced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Black Pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon chili powder, more to taste
1 bunch kale, stalks removed, leaves torn into pieces

1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet over high heat. Throw in the squash and stir it around for a minute to cook.
2. Then add the salt, pepper to taste, and the chili powder...
3. And continue cooking for several minutes, until the squash is tender but not falling apart.
4. Remove it from the pan and set it aside.
5. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet, lower the heat to medium, and add the kale. Saute it for 2 to 3 minutes, until it begins to wilt...
6. Then add the squash and toss it to combine. Serve warm. This is scrumptious!
Toss in 1 cup Parmesan shavings when you add the squash to the kale.
Mix this veggie mixture into Risotto or buttered noodles.
Use the veggie mixture in quesadillas or Panini.
