This month, many students and teachers will return to the classroom after an extended break from school. For those who are looking to maintain a healthy diet to keep their immune systems strong, or those hoping to lose a few “quarantine pounds,” being prepared with healthy meals can help.
Dreaming of a tropical getaway? While it might not be advisable to travel right now, you can bring some of the flavors of a beach-side vacation to your home with this month’s recipes.
As hot weather rolls in, it’s a great time to grill out. Not only is grilling the perfect starting place for a delicious meal, it can also help reduce your energy usage. Grilling keeps the summer heat outside—where it belongs, and, since dinner takes place during peak energy hours, cooking outdoors can benefit your electric bill.
If you’re like me, being at home for the past month has meant cooking more than usual—but it has also meant utilizing what I have on hand. I prepared all of this month’s recipes with ingredients I already had in my refrigerator, freezer or pantry.

Your local rural electric cooperative is a part of a vast network of co-ops that power our nation. In fact, over 900 electric co-ops are united through a national organization, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), based in Arlington, Virginia. Through this national representation, electric cooperatives have a steady voice on Capitol Hill and advocate for the best interests of their members.
As consumers of electricity, we have come to expect electric power that is delivered in a safe, affordable and reliable manner. Your electric cooperative, along with all sister cooperatives in the state, are committed to serving you with high standards of service, plus more. These three attributes that we often talk about—safe, reliable and affordable—are the core of the cooperative mission, but what do they mean exactly?
