The Menu for April's cooking class was Hushpuppies, and Spinach Quiche. Do you see my pearls? I wore then today to honor two women who loved to wear pearls. Barbara Bush who recently passed away, and never was without her pearls. And Julia Child, who always cooked wearing pearls. Today I joined them!
The table is set, all the ingredients are in place, the folks are starting to gather...so let the cooking class begin.
A beautiful cornmeal batter, rich in color and in taste with some creamed corn added to the mix.
Dropped by spoonfuls into the hot oil, and within a few minutes we had golden brown steaming hot hushpuppies.
I made the quiche at home this morning so we could have a little brunch together.
The class is small, but many of the residents are at work. Usually we have 6 to 8, but they all enjoy the food I make, the stories I tell, and the fun of just being together. This is one of the highlights of my month. PS. We had a gentleman show up today...and he was really excited to get a copy of the recipe.
