Christ Church Cookbook: Let’s make a cookbook! Since we cannot have our annual soup supper and chili cook-off this year, and we are all going to miss sharing in the food and the time together as we observe Lent, we wanted to come up with a way to adapt our traditions. One way to do that is to share the recipes we would have made for each other. I am asking each of you to please submit your favorite chili, soup, and bread recipes. Since the children were also offered peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at the soup suppers, there will be a category for favorite PB & J. (Anyone ever try pickles on their peanut butter sandwiches?). Recipes may be submitted via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via snail mail (Christ Episcopal Church, 601 E. Walnut, Springfield, MO 65806). You may also bring a copy of your recipes to church and give it to Franz or to Mary B. You may submit more than one recipe! The more recipes we get, the better the cookbook will be.
