Cornbread Suppers, Summer 2010

After the summer break, your Cornbread Supper documentarian lost her discipline, and the dreaded mushing together of the dish-description papers happened.

We had awesome, huge Suppers through the late summer, on August 16, 23, and 30, and a fine smaller crowd on Labor Day evening, September 6. We have children and new people at every Supper these days, and both are so welcome, along with the regulars and the some-timers - we love all the different Supperians and their different modes.

We have lots of pics and quite a few dish descriptions from all those meals. Here are some of them.
