judy_clarkJudy Clark enjoys sharing recipes and she’s submitted a few to Simple and Delicious magazine from time to time. Until recently, however, she never saw one in print.

Judy, who serves as a nurse practitioner at Dr. William Gray’s office in Morenci, sent in a recipe she called “Savory Mushroom and Herb Roast Pork” about a year and a half ago. She had mostly forgotten about it until a telephone call came in May.

“I was rather shocked,” said the Addison resident, especially when she learned that her recipe would be a featured one and include her photograph. “It was a whole page with comments.”

The recipe isn’t one that Judy created, but she has altered it.

“It was a skillet recipe that had been given to my mom long ago,” Judy said.

She enjoys experimenting and turned a skillet meal into a slow-cooker dinner. She also tried out some different spices to accompany the pork roast, carrots and corn.

To see the recipe, you’ll have to get a copy of the August/September edition of Simple and Delicious. When her recipe was chosen for publication, she gave up the rights to it, Judy explained.

Thousands of recipes are submitted over the course of the year, so she was really pleased to have hers selected for the national publication.

“The fact that my friend saw it at a Winn-Dixie in Florida was neat,” she said.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
