DEAR MELBA: If possible, could you put the following in your column? It would be greatly appreciated. St. Mark Lutheran Church members, 7501 E Reno, Midwest City, will hold their annual bazaar/rummage sale from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.


DEAR MELBA: Our church, Goodrich Methodist Church, 200 W Hayes, Norman, is having our Angels Unlimited bazaar and craft sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. And we'll be selling baked goodies and our sandwich lunch. All proceeds go toward mission projects and scholarships for church youth.


DEAR MELBA: A reader requested the recipe for Piggy Burgers from the 3-Stars drive-in. It was actually the Spartan Drive-in and was owned by my mother, Nona Eckel, for several years. The Piggy Burger was an original sandwich developed by her. The recipe called for a pork cutlet dredged in a milk and egg batter, rolled in flour and fried. I sometimes use fine cracker crumbs for a crunchier texture. To serve, place the cutlet on a bun with barbecue sauce. Some people add lettuce but no tomato, mayonnaise, etc.

DEAR READERS: While you're out shopping the bazaars and craft shows between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Saturday, stop by New Hope United Methodist Church at 11600 N Council Road. There will be more than 25 booths of items you don't want to miss. Plus, you can have a stuffed baked potato for lunch while there.
