Copycat!

Yep, I am a copycat today!
On a lovely evening in June we drove to the other end of our city to see the “Mennonite Girls” at McNally Robinson. I had already purchased their  newest cookbook,   “Celebrations” and was so happy that 8 of the 10 girls were there to sign it.
I think this is the only cookbook which can bring tears to my eyes …when I read the inspiring stories of families much like mine.
As I looked through the book, I noticed that one of the photos seemed vaguely familiar….a green ceramic tray was exactly like one I own.
“I can do that, I thought!…I have the tray, I have rhubarb”!…Rhubarb sorbet!
Here is a photo of the page from the book: (with my first attempt, using sparkling mango soda)005
Second time around: with club soda….

Delicious!
I asked to have the back page signed…the Doxology…which for me, sums it all up!

Check out the MGCC recipe blog http://www.mennonitegirlscancook.ca/
…you will find lovely recipes, but also “Bread for the Journey”
I am also linking to Sandi’s Tuesday Tea Time.
