World Food and the Finn

This Saturday–second Saturday in August–is Community Unity’s annual World on the Square celebration. 🙂

My church’s Second Saturday Supper Club–Corydon Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) no we don’t handle snakes– is coming for the first time, and I’m afraid there won’t be any food left at the free tasting buffet by the time they get there. It’s supposed to be a taste of the world, but so many people take full portions of everything, all the food goes too quickly and all that’s left at the end is nachos.

So I’m going to make a couple of things and hold them back until the church folks are scheduled to show up, enough for them and then some.

I think I’m going to make pasta e fagioli–also known as pasta fazool. It’s good as a soup and, if it sits around too long, as a stove-top casserole because the pasta has absorbed all the liquid. I think I’m going to use Rachel Ray’s recipe.

I think I’ll also make an English trifle. I found this coolio generic mix and match list, so I think I’ll use that as a guide.

If you’re in or around Corydon, come on by. Bring food. 😉

This from Sherry Wachter, aka Bodie Parkhurst:

Today I’m introducing my sure-fire cure for writer’s block on my blog–The Finn. And I’m starting a monthly contest–add your two cents to the Finn story I’ve started, and you just might wind up with a free book cover design. Once a month I’ll put all contributors’ names into a hat and draw a winner. That lucky person gets three free book cover design sketches, one of which I’ll refine for printing. Check it out…


WRITING PROMPT: Go to the Magic Dog Press site and play Finn. Come up with a block-busting never-ending nonsense project of your own.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I want to write on the Finn story some more, now! I keep thinking of that woman back in the berry patch, who was with her, and how that might develop. Love the Great Godd Cthulhu–who knew he was living in Northern Minnesota?

    English Trifle brings back fond memories. In the 70s when I lived in Trinidad, W.I., I had a British friend named Sheila who taught me how to make English Trifle, Blanc Mange and all! Delicious!!

      Ah, Sylvia, but this is me. Or this is I. Whatever. I seriously doubt the trifle I make will actually be worthy of the name. Down and Dirty, that would have to be the name of any cooking show I hosted. heh.
