Baking for Bridge
Tomorrow, Wednesday, it's Mom's turn to have our bridge club to her house. I've made for the lunch tomorrow: white bean chicken chili!! and a cheesecake. This is the best cheesecake ever, and it comes from a cookbook that Dotsy gave me: Great Cakes by Carole Walter. Since I'm doing the cooking, I picked the menu! Usually I serve Peaches' Texas Cornbread with the chili, but we're having french bread instead. Fortunately, the cheesecake is extremely light. Mom has played bridge as long as I can remember. She played with the same group of ladies for about 40 years. Now, she is in two bridge clubs out here, and substitutes in more. She is an excellent bridge player. We also have a 'club' that meets whenever we can. We call it the Peach Pits, or Peaches and her Pits. We also have some sub-pits! Mom, Dotsy, LarryAnn, Barbara, and sometimes Karen, and I'm always there! We start about 1 at Mom's, the Club House, and finish when the wine runs out. Mom's ladies in Monroe played every Thursday. They all took a sandwich, and played until school got out. PS If you want the recipe, click on the right hand picture..
