P.S. This is where I planned to place a great picture I took of all the crew. Unfortunately, I can’t find it AYWHERE. So just imagine these generous souls, or better still imagine yourself in this group or others around the country…gardening and giving.
This week she’s coming to town to spread the love around.
Friends have pre-ordered hundreds of pounds
That will be turned into all kinds of treats
Over the holidays
Daddy & Mother would love what she has done.
And so do I.
When Daddy was in office pecans were the standard gift for visiting dignitaries and Mother’s pecan pie was served at more dinners than I can count. She would make a dozen or so at a time. She was amazing.
This recipe was first printed in “Recipes from the Campaign Trail” . A little campaign brochure with recipes from Mother’s kitchen and Daddy’s “recipe for good government”. My how campaigns have changed over the years!
