Got Recipes to Share ???
Sir Knights do you, or your Lady, have a favorite recipe(s) to share? The
Grand Commander is collecting recipes to make a WV KT Cookbook to
sell as a fund raiser for our Holy Land Pilgrimage Fund. The goal is to
collect several recipes from each Commandery in the state for the
cookbook by mid March and have the cookbook ready for sale at Grand
Conclave in May. The recipes will be compiled by category (appetizer,
salad, main course, side dishes, desserts). Include your name and
Commandery number so credit can be given for each contributor. Send
recipes to the Grand Commander or his Lady Sandy at the address or the
e-mail address shown on the header on the opposite page.
