I would sum up the weekend but Steve Savile did such a nice job covering the writing portion, that I’ll just talk about Grandma’s birthday party.
I made the little packets of recipe cards, each containing fourteen recipes daintily tied with a sheer blue bow. We had a basked of those sitting on the table for people to take as they circulated through the house. Grandma was very pleased. She said, “I knew you would do something clever, but I didn’t know what.”
Here is another recipe for your enjoyment.
Makes 6 apple dumplings
14 oz lemon-lime soda
1 1/2 cup sugar.
Bring to boil and add 1/2 stick butter.
6 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
Peel and core 6 apples.
Make rich pastry and cut in 7 inch squares. Mix sugar, cinnamon, allspice. Roll pastry around apple and fill center of apple with this mixture. Put in a baking dish and pour lemon-lime soda over all. Dot with butter and bake until done at about 325.
After Grandma’s birthday party, Rob and I went out with Steve and Alethea for Indian food. They’ve headed for home now, so I’m just catching up on some writing and then I will head to bed.
