Tips From Your #1 Protection Team

  1. Getting a big tax refund? Skip the flat-screen for one of the following:
  2. Start (or add to) an emergency fund
  3. Pay down debt
  4. Put extra money into your IRA
  5. Set money aside for gifts or vacation
  6. Pay the 1st year premium for life or disability insurance

Although receiving a tax refund may seem like a good thing, it actually means you’ve overpaid throughout the year and should probably consider reviewing your withholdings.

Business Of The Month: Queso Dee’as Southwestern Cuisine

Authentic southwestern cuisine comes to the Lebanon Area.  Thanks to Bob and Dee Cook and their love for southwestern food, Lebanon is able to enjoy the best of what the southwest has to offer, yet never leave the county.  After years of searching for the right situation, Bob and Dee found what they were looking for across the street from HAAC in downtown Lebanon.  The property was a former restaurant, which helped make the decision to locate there.  The name was conceived by Bob who wanted to include his wife’s name in the restaurant’s name, Queso“Dee”as.

Bob comes to Lebanon from Maryland were he grew up, Colorado where he honed his culinary techniques and Wyoming were he learned his restaurant management skills.  Bob is the one who runs and operates the restaurant.  It is his original homemade recipes for salsa, meats and sauces that will make your dining experience a delight.

If you like cilantro, order the Mayan.  It is an enchilada prepared with chicken or you can order it vegetarian style, as I do, with just cheese.  The perfect cheese enchilada smothered with Bob’s special green sauce.  It is not spicy, it’s just the best.  Just ask for Pat’s enchilada.  Burritos with names like El Grande, Coloradan and the Ranchero keep you coming back for more.  Other southwest favorites that are available include quesadillas and tacos.  Bob makes a great taco salad which can include his pico corn salsa and guacamole.

Their counter service allows them to keep the prices affordable for everyone  and the location provides an atmosphere that is inviting to families, businessmen and women, as well as the students alike.  As Bob likes to say “Make our taste of success, be your taste to remember”.  Find out why those that have tried Queso Dee’as keep coming back for more.

Community Corner

This year, at our annual Stickler family Christmas party we presented our leader and agency principal, Pat Freer Sr, with a combined donation to Lebanon County Christian Ministries. Pictured here is Lebanon County Christian Ministries’ director Troy Williams, left, with Pat Freer Sr.  All the staff brought in various household and food items to donate to the organization. LCCM is the community food bank and helps coordinate the free noon meals that are available to any and all that are in need of a nutritious meal.
