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….
Second photo taken out on the deck.
I asked to have the back page signed…the Doxology…which for me, sums it all up!
Check out the MGCC recipe blog
…you will find lovely recipes, but also “Bread for the Journey”
I am also linking to Sandi’s Tuesday Tea Time.
