Fresh Sheet: Bazaars offer tasty treats


It’s a bazaar weekend.

Not bizarre. That was last weekend.

Start Friday with Scandinavian treats made by the members of Central Lutheran Church.

Their annual Scandinavian Bazaar will begin with a kaffe stua, or coffee break, from 9 to 11 a.m. The bazaar runs from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Cookies include rosettes, krumkakes, sandbakkels and more.

Money raised is donated to local charities. Central Lutheran Church is located at Fifth Avenue and Bernard Street. Reach the church at (509) 624-9233.

On Sunday, members of the Spokane Buddhist Temple will be serving yakisoba bento boxes, senbei, sushi, mochi and other baked goods.

The Fall Food Bazaar will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the temple on Ninth Avenue and Perry Street.

The bento box lunch with either chicken or vegetarian yakisoba is $10 per order. It is served with miso soup. Yakisoba are stir-fried noodles with bite-size chicken, cabbage, onions and carrots, seasoned with yakisoba sauce, salt and pepper.

Senbei, sweet and salty Japanese crackers, are $3.50 per package.

Pre-orders are recommended because the yakisoba sold out during the last bazaar, an event which has been held for more than 20 years. Call (509) 534-7954 to pre-order. A member of the temple will call back to confirm the order.
