    Blue Ribbon Recipes from 1968

    A page for the Cover of the County Fair Cookbook

    "The corn is shocked.

    Deep-yellow pumpkins bulge with ripeness.

    The harvest is in and the silos packed.

    Berries, fruits, vegetables--and everything that can be dried or canned--

    has been carefully stored away in the cellar.

    The air is electric with holiday emotion.

    It's time to meet with neighbors and old friends.

    It's time to head to the county fair!"

    lin_65 or blueridge_va   Some of my older posts were as homebody in '02 and had 2-3 other forgotten names; there were so many problems with the old BB. I had to log out each time and using a dial-up ISP; trying to log in again, would be denied entry; until I got another name. Does not seem possible that so many years have passed. And now I'm wireless, have an android tablet and a 2006 Dell. That's an upgrade and is very fast. Makes me happy when I'm looking for recipes.
