Pool House Renovations are Underway

The renovations to the Pool House, Phase II, are well underway: re-coating the chipped deck, replacing those painted 2 X 6 columns, completing landscaping around the building, and replacing and patching the worn clapboards on the outside.

And, the new look of a refurbished Pool House will be enhanced with new poolside furniture!

Here’s Rob cleaning the pool in anticipation of its opening on Memorial Day Weekend.

We’re looking forward to seeing you by the pool this summer!

Easter Brunch at the Club (with a special guest!)


Easter brunch, with an Easter egg hunt, is a long standing tradition here at the Club.  This year, we’re adding to the fun by including a Golden Egg prize, and inviting the Easter Bunny himself!  This is, of course, a fantastic event for the whole family.

Brunch will be from 10:00am to 3:00pm in the Timberview Restaurant, and the Easter egg hunt will begin at noon.

We’re hoping for warmth by then, but we’ll determine the location of the hunt (indoors or out) depending on the weather that day.

Reservations required, please call 352-0135 or email judi@keenecc.com.

March Soup of the Day Winner!

Congrats to Barbara McNamara, who submitted a recipe for Mushroom Soup to our ongoing Soup of the Month Contest! You may have already seen it on the menu and given it a try, but if not, come visit!

Mushroom soup

1 oz dried cremini mushrooms (I use a European blend from Whole Foods)
1 cup dry white wine
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 lb or more of a variety of fresh mushrooms cleaned and chopped
2 cups whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
@ three cups chicken stock
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp Cognac
Snipped fresh chives for garnish

Combine the dried cremini and white wine in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over Med-high heat. Simmer for five minutes, remove from heat and let stand for out 15 minutes. Reserve for later.

Melt butter over medium heat in a large stockpot. Add the chopped mushrooms and sauté until they begin to exclude their juices. Add the reserved cremini with the liquid as well as the milk and cream. Bring to a boil stirring occasionally. Lower the heat and simmer the soup, uncovered for 45 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Purée the hot soup in batches until smooth. Return the soup to a large clean pot and thin by stirring in the chicken stock. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the Cognac.

If you put too much hot soup in the blender you will have a big mess in the kitchen!

This is a recipe from “Pedaling Through Burgundy Cookbook ” by Sarah Leah Chase. I have modified amounts of ingredients and modified the types of mushrooms! Enjoy!
