Looking for that perfect stocking stuffer (albeit you will need a really sturdy stocking)? Are you hosting a holiday party and have not decided on the appetizers/snacks (hint: red is the perfect color this holiday season)? Thinking about what to serve your guests when you host your “Fill-in-the-blank” Bowl Game party? How about some of Associate Prof. of Natural and Applied Science Steve Meyer’s salsa?
Meyer always has a supply of mild, medium, hot and “hot +” salsa in his office. For a contribution to the Katie Hemauer Memorial Scholarship, you can take home a pint or two (or an entire case) of salsa. Mix and match various levels of salsa hotness and see who can tolerate the “hot +” salsa at your New Year’s Eve party! It is all for a great cause—UW-Green Bay students—while remembering and honoring one of our outstanding alums!
