Cornbread Suppers, November 8 and 15, 2010


Again. Two separate weeks' precious little Food Description Slips, dropped and commingled. Bad bad documentarian! So - one post for two weeks.

Lots of people come to Cornbread Supper these days. On November 8, despite the date, perhaps 20 people sat on the front porch during Supper. Not so on chillier November 15, when people stayed indoors, filled all the chairs, some of the stairs, and sometimes sat in the floor, seeming to have a lively fine time no matter what. Certainly their hosts and documentarian are enjoying these fine groups.

Foods have been hearty and beautiful. The cornbreads have been not quite bountiful enough, and that's about to change with a renewed commitment to Plenty of the Main Thing Going Forward.
