Asparagus Bread Salad


Bring trivia questions related to the eclipse and astronomy to the table and quiz each other on your eclipse knowledge!


The next time a total solar eclipse happens in the U.S. will be April 2024. Where do you think you'll be, and what will you be doing?

This recipe for a hearty side or light supper came from our friends at Edible Pioneer Valley. To make it a main dish, you may want to increase quantities.
