Beth's Weekly Moultrie Observer Column - Week 29
(This appears here courtesy of The Moultrie Observer)

Annette from Meigs write with a few old recipes she thought you would enjoy.
The first is for Baked Lima Beans.
Soak a cup of lima beans overnight. The next morning, slip off the bean skins between the thumb and the finger. Put the beans in a small baking pan and add a half teaspoon of salt, two teaspoons of butter and enough cold water to cover them.
Put a pan over them and put everything in the oven to bake, adding a little water as needed so they won't cook dry.
When they are about done, remove the pan from the top and let them brown lightly.
(There's no temperature for the oven or no time...guess this is part of old-fashioned cooking!)
Here's Annette's recipe for Supreme of Chicken Breast (which was prepared and eaten many years before the invention of cholesterol and/or calories!). It sounds delicious.
Remove the breast meat from two young chickens. Trim them into cutlet shape. Sprinkle the meat with salt and pepper, dip in heavy cream, then in flour. Place in a hot frying pan with generous amount of butter. Fry until brown and then place them in another pan, dot them with butter, cover with buttered paper and bake in a hot oven (400 degrees) until tender.
Make a sauce from one-quarter cup of butter, a quarter cup of flour and stir until smooth. Add half a cup of chicken stock and half a cup of cream. Bring to a boiling point and add salt, pepper, paprika, the yolk of one egg and a few small sautéed mushroom caps. Arrange the chicken on a platter and surround and cover with the sauce.
If you have favorite old-fashioned recipes, it's fun to pass them along here...and that ensures that the old ways are not lost! Just mail them to: Beth Gay, PO Box 2693, Moultrie, GA 31776-2693.
Does anyone know the words to Silver-Haired Daddy of Mine, Preacher and the Bear or Come Spring?

I hope everyone knows that you are all welcome at our Scottish Weekend 2002!
We have a marvelous weekend of friendship, food, entertainment and learning all planned and ready. The dates this time will be February 15, 16 & 17.
Events include on Friday a visit to The Tyson Trophy Museum in Doerun. The Odom Library will be open for research and the ladies from The Historical Society will be on hand to welcome visitors and friends and hand out goodie bags. Our vendors will be set up in the auditorium all day so that you may browse amongst various books, Scottish items and jewelry.
Friday night - at the Agricultural Center - we'll have our Old Fashioned Ceilidh and Quail Dinner!
Entertainers on Friday night will be everyone who attends (who wishes to take part) plus professional entertainers, Carl Peterson (from Pennsylvania and Greenock, Scotland), Colin Grant-Adams (from Kentucky and Oban, Scotland), Bobby Murray (from Canada, Florida and Scotland), Pat Talbert (from North Carolina), Kitty Carroll (from Florida), Eric Duncan (from Florida and Aberdeen, Scotland), and Rixey & McMillan from Tallahassee.
Saturday at the library and at The Colquitt County Museum of History there will be interesting, informative talks and programs including Janet Danforth and Robert Moir with their Bloody Ribbons playlet - an account of the women of Culloden. Janet and Robert are coming to present their work here in preparation for its performances at The Fringe next summer in Edinburgh, Scotland!
We'll discuss Scottish Weekend 2002 some more next week. Call me at the library if you would like a registration packet...or come by the library. The phone is 229-985-6540. Ask for Beth.
