February 13, 2012

Tonight's dinner brought together perhaps the most first-time Cornbreadians all at one time since the very first Supper in March, 2009. Tonight, students from a community-oriented class at Transylvania University, our near neighbor, visited. Young creatives settling into Lexington, or back into Lexington if they grew up here, also came in force. Fantastic!

Beautiful food:
  • Bourbon-Glazed Shrimp (w/Bacon) 
  • Turnip Soup (has bacon) 
  • Maine Apple Sauce! 
  • Wheatberry, (or winterberry) with cherries, candied pecans, and citrus
  •  Pesto Pasta Salad 
  • Peanut Butternut Squash Soup (Thai, not spicy) 
  • Spicy Veggie soup with beef 
  • Holbrook Sorghum (Morgan County) with Homemade Biscuits 
  • Polenta with Elmwood Stock Farm greens and Parmesan 
  • Flourless Chocolate Mocha Cake (eggs) with Whipped Cream 
  • Chocolate Chip Brownies 
  • Oatmeal Cookies 
  • Page Oranges

The Campsie hellebores have been in bloom for weeks already in this crazy winter. We enjoyed them on the table tonight, along with a bit of lavender from the herb garden that has yet to go dormant.
