Last week at the Oak
Mountain Highland Games near Pelham, Alabama, I was sampling some
delicious shortbread...and the chef was telling me about his unique
recipes...and I had an idea!
Why not have our Family
Tree readers send us their favorite shortbread recipes.. and other
favorite Scottish treat recipe? And when folks submit their recipes...send
along a batch of the goodies for Scottish Weekend 2003.
If we work this out so that
folks will send us shortbread during December and January and February..
and if they will send their culinary masterpieces in airtight tins...we
can serve all of the mouth-watering goodies at Scottish Weekend!
Thinking more about it on
the way home, I thought, "Wouldn't it be fun if everyone would design
their own page?" This could be very easy. Just write your recipe...put
your photograph or other favorite photo of things Scottish...or a design
you draw or have your grandbaby draw...or a copy of the recipe in your
grandmother's handwriting (COPIES, please!). Make your page the size of
the border around this article...and we're in business! We'll even be able
to do some in color...so, if your page just cries out for color...we can
The folks at Caberdance -
creators of MacBubba - are going to design our cookbook covers for us -
and we'll have Caberdance coupons in the cookbook, too!
If you send along a batch
of treats and a recipe page, be sure and write the story of your recipe
too! And, we'll sell you a cookbook for half the price when they're done!
Otherwise, we'll make them
available for a reasonable price (We're still figuring and scratching our
heads on this part.)
So if you think this will
be fun...get started now! We need recipe pages and batches by 1 February
2003, please or sooner as long as the treats will keep.
