Memorial Day is a Monday holiday, and we decided to proceed with a Cornbread Supper for any people not tending their own backyard grills. About 25 people came to Supper, bringing several red-white-blue dishes: fruit salads, casseroles -- and a golden roast chicken.
Left-behind food labels suggest some of the variety of dishes (and colors):
> Strawberry & Spinach Salad
> Black Bean & Mango Salad
> Lemon Poppyseed Scones!
> Rice, black beans, local ground beef, Irish cheddar, salsa
> Lime Curry Orzo
Cornbreads, carrying out the Red-White-Blue theme:
> [Red] Super-spicy vegetarian with red kidney beans, Elmwood 2008 (frozen) hot and sweet peppers, cheeses, Campsie green garlic, and Blue Moon hot paprika
> [White] Traditional cornbread: Contains pork (bacon and cracklings)
> [Blue] New England sweet corn muffins with Reed Valley 2008 blueberries; vegetarian
Prepare for Savory Cornmeal Waffles - taste treat coming up on Monday night, June 8!
