I see the text of Molly’s posts firsts, and I’m always nervous when I see comments about a recipe she “knows I’ll love.” Sure enough, it’s more prunes! I do love this cookbook cover, though – the community ones are always so fun. Enjoy Molly’s latest post!-AA
I love coincidences. They don’t work well as plot points in mysteries, but in real life they can be a lot of fun. For instance, I’ve been thinking about long ago summer vacations lately, and in particular the vacations my family took to Washington Island, Wisconsin. I posted a picture on Facebook of my brothers and me on the island in 1959, and that same day a package arrived in the mail from a dear friend. It was a copy of Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread, a cookbook put together by the women of the Lutheran Church on Washington Island in 1964. It’s one of those wonderful community cookbooks with something for everyone. Opening it immediately brought back memories of the delicious smorgasbords held in the church hall. And by another great coincidence, the cookbook solved a problem for me. I’d been trying to come up with a recipe to share in honor of Amy earning her black belt, and I found the perfect one in this cookbook. Congratulations, Amy! Here’s a recipe I know you’ll love.
