It’s always fun when I am able to acquire another church cookbook. This week let me introduce you to a cookbook with some very interesting and diversified recipes from a church which was established in 1779. The named originated because the founding members met in a field where the deer roamed and fed, hence the name Buck Creek Baptist Church! It’s at 506 Buck Creek Road in our neighboring town of Chesnee. This week I am using this addition to my library to make some summer salads and a very original lemonade. Let’s go to the kitchen and get started.
Rutherford Regional Medical Center was recently gifted with 17 baby quilts, handmade by the Rutherford Quilt Guild, for use in The Birth Place nursery. Each quilt was accompanied by the children’s book which inspired the design.
Do you know someone who grumbles?
There once was a farmer who was an incurable grumbler. Hiram grumbled about everything all the time. He was never satisfied.
One fall, he had the best apple crop for miles around. The apples were plentiful. There was a bumper crop. And there were hardly any bugs on them. You just couldn’t ask for a better apple crop than the one Hiram had that year.

I get in sort of a flux this time of year. I don’t know whether to fish, scout, shoot my bow, or stop it all until I get the yard and the house as momma would have it. But if I stop it all I really become an irritable guy. Maybe I could just call these trips therapy and get by with an occasional excursion.
