Monday, February 15, 2010 - Hot Food on a Cold Night

We completely failed to predict the size of the hungry, energetic, convivial crowd that came to Cornbread Supper on Presidents' Day 2010, one of the worst weather nights of our rather unusually cold and snowy winter. Three generations of two different families came, along with plenty of others, and we had a fine spicy time. Firsts tonight: First time we had two different dumpling dishes at the same Supper, first contribution of food labels by a capable and fully participating preschooler (see below), and the first homegrown dried beans (Vermont Cranberry) our household had ever produced.

The cranberry beans with cornmeal dumplings and onion jam were unintentionally spicy, but the chicken and dumplings were smooooth and calming.

Other fine tastes:

  • Farmer's Pasta (Cheese, Bacon)
  • Chicken & Dumplin's
  • Sour Cream/Buttermilk Cornbread (Vegetarian)
  • Cornbreads Redux: Triangles and muffins from past Suppers, reheated to add food for the hungry crowd
  • Salami and Cheese Plate
  • Homemade Maine Applesauce
  • Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes made with Trader Joe's Cocoa Powder + Beth Ellen's Cream Cheese Frosting! (Iced and decorated before interested witnesses)
  • Chocolate cake with cherry topping
  • Brownies
  • And more chocolate desserts!
