A collection of small-town recipe cards has something to say about enjoying life.
From the 1960s to the 1990s, Shirley Collier worked as a hairdresser in two small south Texas towns. Over the years, she collected scores of recipes from patrons who brought in goodies to share. These recipes were written on scraps of paper and on the backs of blank checks and often contained personal notes and bits of wisdom, as well.
Her son Curt Collier will share these recipes and will prepare some of the wacky, weird, and wonderful delectables from Medina County, Texas, for you to taste. He will also share what he learned from the women who created these recipe cards and what this unique collection of snidbits says about life and living it well.
Please bring your favorite recipe to share with others in our “Great NJ Recipe Swap!”
This Gathering is at the meetinghouse and on Zoom. The Zoom link will be in the weekly Focus newsletter and may be obtained by emailing [email protected].
