We grew up eating cole slaw from a restaurant called The Brookville Hotel (Brookville, for short) in a nearby small town, Brookville, KS. They served family-style chicken, mashed potatoes, cream-style corn and this recipe of cole slaw. And for dessert, homemade vanilla ice cream. Mmmmm. Housed in an historic hotel, it was chock full of artifacts and history that would catch any child’s attention and awe - including old rooms upstairs that housed old cowboys like Wild Bill Hickok! It was always so cool to eat special dinners there!Recently, I made their famous cole slaw recipe using Chinese cabbage for fun. Here it is.
We got tired of our same old recipes, so we’re on a new recipe exploration. One of the new recipes we tried this week is called Murphy’s Hot Hamburgers from The Pioneer Woman’s blog. We love Pioneer Woman. She’s our go-to gal for good new recipes. Thanks, PW!
As most of you know, every week we make approximately 100 Sollie Dollies and 100 Oatmeal Buddies for Farmer’s Market. And each week, I marvel at how truly beautiful they are, laid out on the table after we have frosted them. Here is my latest attempt to capture this beauty. But, as usual, these photos do not do the spectacle justice. I will keep trying. In the meantime, I hope these will suffice.
When our chicken customers ask us for our fried chicken recipe, we’re ashamed to have to tell them, “We’ve never made fried chicken.” Can you believe we’ve NEVER made it? Well that all changed this week. We FINALLY gave it a shot and wow! was it delish! Since this is just our first try at it, though, we need to make it several more times before we feel confident enough in our recipe to share it. So stay tuned.
