The May Cookbook Book Club
was at Linderhof
The theme I chose
Nancy Fuller's Farmhouse Rules
I found Nancy when her very first episode of Farmhouse Rules aired
I liked the fact that
a - she was not a young chick
b - she used fresh ingredients but cooked simple good food
c - she lived in an old house
(although much older than Linderhof)
d - she liked antiques
e - she wears and apron!
And I've watched each episode of her series as it was aired
I have some recorded, too, which I re-watch
She published a cookbook, and, of course, I had to buy it!
And I've cooked a lot from it.
I like Nancy
Therefore, it made sense for the Cookbook Book Club theme for May
to be "Farmhouse Rules"
The "Gigi Juice" I chose was Spiked Arnold Palmers
Even the non bourbon drinkers thought it tasty!
The food table was set up in the breakfast room
So we can serve ourselves
“Donna’s” Stuffed mushrooms
“Donna’s” Roquefort grapes
“Angela’s” Butter Mint Peas
“Barbara’s”Grandma’s Potato Salad
“Rita’s” Kicked Up Cuban Salad
“Edra’s”Bananas Pudding with Homemade Vanilla Wafers
“Rhonda’s” Strawberry Jelly Roll
“Gigi Juice” Spiked Arnold Palmer
Donna's Stuffed Mushrooms
Donna's Roquefort Grapes
(the host always provides the entree --
as well as the "Gigi Juice"
Angela's Butter Mint Peas
Rita's Kicked Up Cuban Salad
Barbara's Grandma's Potato Salad
(Nancy's Grandma not Barbara's!)
Edra's Banana Pudding with Homemade Vanilla Wafers
Rhonda's Strawberry Jelly Roll
The meal was delicious
Every recipe but mine came from the internet
(which means from Farmhouse Rules episodes)
for no one else had the cookbook
Everyone agreed that their particular dish was easy
(yes, even Edra said that the homemade vanilla wafers were easy)
which is one of the reasons that I like to watch Nancy
We are all looking forward to June
It's Road Trip time!
