Monday, June 7, 2010 - What a Crowd!

First Monday after public school vacation started - or just hunger for cornbread? We don't know the tides that rise and fall in our friends' and neighbors' lives, causing large crowds on occasion. This great Cornbread Supper featured at least 11 youngsters, most of who went home enpurpled by direct engagement with the marvelous mulberry tree near the back yard.

This edition of Cornbread Suppers features much good food, including a bounty of 48 deviled egg halves, not one of which enjoyed long-term survival. In addition:
  • Cranberry Chicken & Brown Rice
  • Slaw w/Vinaigrette
  • Egg Salad and Bread (if you want to make a sandwich!)
  • Bourbon County Asparagus; olive oil, salt, pepper

Cornbread in the Country: May 31, 2010 - The Bleugrass Chevre edition

The wonderful Susan Miller invited the hungry Cornbread Supperians to Miller Trust Farm, where she lives and operates Bleugrass Chevre, with the cooperation of some very appealing goat creatures. A big crowd filled the porch, and beautiful food filled a table. We have pics in process, and will add them and the total food list when we are all reconnected with the little slips of paper.

A magical light shower fell at about 7 PM; children played on the lawn; hikes happened to the nearby creek; porch-sitting and conviviality brightened moods and lightened spirits.

Many, many thanks to Susan, and to Abigail Keam, noted beekeeper, who brought copies of her new book, Death By a Honeybee, and read from it. It was a honey-sweet evening.

    Cornbread Supper, May 3, 2010: Strange Ice Cream and Americorps!

    On this most unusual day, about 40 people came to Cornbread Supper. And then, at about 7:30, about 20 more people came, all part of national Americorps groups who had come to Kentucky to lead the Build-a-Bed project. The volunteers brought nearly all of their own food, but the rest of us had plenty, too.
