Feasting on Pioneer Food

April 4th I feasted with the Nichols Hill Garden Club on fried tomatoes, corn fritters, gingerbread tea cakes, potato soup and lettuce sandwiches from my "1905 Cookbook." Yummy!! All fresh from the garden and cooked green like the pioneers.
The hostesses wore vintage aprons and tables were set with grandma's sterling, hobnail glasses and delicate china plates.
I shared stories from the 1905 Cookbook and exhibited 30 Food for Body & Soul Touring Quilts in the living room of this beautiful old home furnished in antiques, majolica and quilts.
