Grand Commandery Recipe Book – recipes needed

Grand Commandery Recipe Book – recipes needed

I received a call from Sandy Ball, wife of Right Eminent Ed Ball, Grand Commander, Knights Templar. Sandy is assembling a recipe book for the Grand Commandery and is asking each Sir Knight to submit his – or his wife’s – favorite recipe(s). Elkins Commandery is leading the competition with 47 recipes – WOW.  I’ve had the pleasure of eating Elkins home cooking, and I can assure you it’s darn good. Of course, my Grafton, Taylor County, roots force me to inform you that our home made graham cracker pie can’t be beat. Sandy would like to have about 200 more recipes. Please submit your favorite recipes to Sandy Ball at wvktgr047@comcast.net She asks that a Sir Knights name and Commandery number and location be included.  If you desire, you could submit it in honor of a deceased member.   I’m sending this appeal to Scotland in addition to the United States readers, some of which are not in the Masonic fraternity, and Sandy said any and all recipes will be included. To my friends in Minnesota and Wisconsin especially, submit some of those Scandinavian recipes like “hot dish,”  “Minnesota wild rice,” etc… And to the Wisconsin “cheeseheads,” surely there’s a brats and kraut recipe. And my Scottish friends, I ate at Jennie’s table in Stoneyburn – and it was delicious. I hope Bill Morrison and other Scots can submit some recipes. Please help Sandy with this project. When you submit a recipe, please include:
Sir Knight’s Name : eg Jerry Rhoads
Commandery Name, Number and location: eg Bayard #11, Stillwater, MN
Heck, after I showed folks how to burn water, I’ve been prohibited from participating – so I’d be glad to be adopted by a friend. Hint Hint. Seriously, it’s a worthwhile project. Please help.
