Thursday, August 21, 2014 N/Warren Town and County News Page Nine The weekend of July 18 was a busy weekend for many Norwalk area girls who spent hours of hard work on ball fields in Kansas City for the USSSA Softball Fastpitch World Series. The girls are all members of the Iowa Outlaws, a competitive tourna- ment team Fastpitch Softball Club. This is a new organization and consists of 8U, 9U, 10U and 12U age groups. The goal for the girls is to gain advanced knowledge of the game and compete at the highest levels and from the results of the USSSA World Series, it is working. The 12U team finished the weekend bringing home the World Series Championship trophy. The 10U team was also extremely successful with the runner-up position. The 9U team brought home the 4th place finish - quite the ac- complishment for a team that has only been together a year. While many of these girls are friends during the day at Oviatt, Lakewood and the Middle School, they have spent countless hours this last year during the evenings and weekends practicing and developing their skills. They are friends during the day and have become sisters in the evening learning the value of teamwork, sports- manship and respect, as well as a love of the game. These girls are a group of ladies that are representing Norwalk on a national level and are doing a phenomenal job! With this solid base, the future looks bright for these 2nd through 6th graders!

Photos Dessert Reimagined With (NAPS)---After all the hard work of getting into tip-top shape for the summer sea- son, many folks have a tinge of guilt while they enjoy those traditional picnic dishes. Fortunately for summer foodies everywhere, Liz Weiss, MS, RD and Janice Newell Bissex, MS, RD--better known as The Meal Makeover Morns--have partnered with the California Avocado Com- mission to put a healthy spin on a summer favorite~..pie. Desserts made with fresh, seasonal produce are a great way to celebrate the summer. With California avocados in season from spring to fall, they are a delicious ingredi- ent for any summer dish, including dessert. The Meal Makeover Morns reimagined the traditional Key Lime Pie and developed a zesty Cali- fornia Avocado Yogurt Key Lime Pie recipe that com- bines limes, creamy Greek yogurt and avocados nestled inside a delicious homemade graham cracker crust. One might not immedi- ately think of avocados as something to use in baking, but the versatile California avocado adds a creamy rich flavor to any recipe. In addi- tion to their consistent qual- ity and exceptional flavor, they also offer an array of nutritional benefits. Cali- fornia avocados are natu- rally sodium and cholesterol free and contain "good" fats (both poly- and monounsat- urated fats), along with nearly 20 vitamins, miner- als and phytonutrients. Since the greatest concentration is in the dark green fruit closest to the peel, The Meal Makeover Moms suggest nicking and peeling the skin from the avocado to get to the most nutrient-rich fruit.
