This week I’d like to take a trip back in time. After reading this I want you to say, “My mom made that!”
So many desserts are not made any more for various reasons. Some were too time-consuming, messy, and hazardous to our health. Cakes made with lard, baked Alaska, cherries jubilee, I wonder how many avocado, green curtains went up in smoke due to flambé?
Mr. and Mrs. David (Sherri) Lyons and Mr. Danny Cobb of Owenton, Ky. are pleased to announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter Katey Susan Cobb to Steven Daniel Preston, son of Mr. and Mrs. Curtis (Shelley) Sutherland and Mr. Steve Preston of Lawrenceburg.
The wedding will be at the First Christian Church in Lawrenceburg at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 1.
Samuel E. and Peggy Ann Ellis Beasley of Lawrenceburg celebrated 60 years of marriage Sept. 8, 2016.
Both Anderson County natives, Sam and Peggy were married in Indiana in 1956.
Sam is a veteran of the United States Navy and a retired truck driver. Peggy is retired from Rand McNally and has worked part-time for several years as a medical records clerk at Frankfort Regional Medical Center. They are members of First Baptist Church.
Today, Aug. 31, in a small town called Bunol in Valencia, Spain, 20,000 people are launching ripe tomatoes at each other. They are celebrating the end of the season in style with more than 100 tons of mushy, juicy, red tomatoes. This annual food fight is called La Tomatina and lasts for one hour. It sounds tempting, I can probably think of a few people that would wear the pulp well however, I have a couple of better ideas, tastier too.
Tomatoes go so well with cheese — grilled cheese, mac and cheese, cheese omelets.
It seems to me, there is a day, week, month, holiday for everything.
Every profession has a day, every food has a day. Being on so many food blogs and pages every week, I am reminded to honor bagels, cupcakes, bacon, broccoli and this month — the sandwich. August apparently is the month for sandwiches, goat cheese and catfish.
I decided to offer three recipes this week that will satisfactorily cover all the bases.
