The book for this week comes from our local PTO. Called A Library of Family Favorites it was put out in 1999 to raise money to replace a budget cut to the elementary schools. The budget cut was restored so the proceeds were pledged to the purchase of library books for the school library.
Over 2000 recipes were submitted. With this amount of recipes they had to omit several to keep the book to one volume. There are still an amazing amount of recipes for a book of this type. 506 pages of recipes and then the index. If you enjoy this type of cookbook, (church, town) this is one of the better books.
Bettie’s boss and our lawyer’s wife was then president of the PTO and this book was a gift from her. She now serves on the school board. As they have 4 teenagers in school it gives them a strong interest in the school system.
