This week’s episode of The Very Vera Show is more of a lifestyle show as she travels across the Savannah River to Aiken, S.C.
“Our good neighbor, Aiken, was kind enough to invite us to create a show that would share with our entire viewing audience the mystique of this amazing South Caroline gem. This show aired last season but was truly one of our best,” according to Vera Stewart.
In this show, Vera takes a tour of the city highlighting locations sch as the Aiken County Farmers Market, which is one of the oldest in the South and is the oldest “county farmers’ market in continuous service in the same location in South Carolina,” according to its website.
Viewers can meet Chef Jason Tufts at Malia’s Restaurant and Tiger Kneece, the manager of the Aiken Polo Club as well as get a look inside The Willcox.
Also, Vera will be giving one lucky winner and a companion the chance for an overnight experience in Aiken with excursions, meals and lodging.
The Very Vera Show airs at 12:30 p.m. Thursdays and 7:30 p.m. Saturdays on WJBF-TV.
Charmain’s Adventures with Vera’s Cookbooks
In January, some people make resolutions to eat better and exercise more.
The last resolution I made was to not make resolutions, and I haven’t broken that one. I have, however, made a plan to eat better and exercise. I’ve stuck with it for several years, and it’s paid off.
While a lot of people think of Vera Stewart and her incredible desserts, there’s so much more in her cookbooks. This week I’m making my shopping list for some healthier options, and I’ve spied a couple of recipes that will end up on my table this weekend.
My Adventures with Vera’s Cookbook will include her Honey Lemon Chicken Bowls and judging by the temperatures this weekend (can you say “brr?”) I may need to try one of her hearty soup recipes for my husband. Not sure which yet as she has several yummy sounding soups and chili recipes on her website.
I’ll let you know next week.
