Cookbook Club Sunday Dinner – End of Summer Celebration
We hadn’t held a Cookbook Club Sunday Dinner in a year. I thought we’d do a repeat of last year’s End of the Summer Celebration on September 17 and as usual it was virtual and in-person. In the spirit of do-overs, Matthew Raiford’s cookbook, Bress ‘n’ Nyam, was featured again.
Everyone was invited to prepare their favorite dish. Since our dinner was the next day after the MS Delta Blues and Heritage Festival, I told my sisters in town not to worry about cooking. Figured they may have partied too hardy the night before at the festival.
From the cookbook, I prepared Spatchcock Chicken with Roasted Vegetables and Cowpea Salad; both with my own twists to the recipes. I added a green salad and tomato basil bread made from a pre-mix bought from The Crown Restaurant in Indianola. Cassandra baked a delicious pound cake and Thishya brought homemade spinach dip with chips.
It was wonderful to share a meal and lots of conversation with my MS sister friends Myrtis, Cassandra, Bea, Thishya, and Essie and sister friends Dianna (VA), Benita (NY), Pat (PA), and Gaynell (VA).
And before leaving some of them checked out the garden and outside art.
Until next time, have a good one.
