September Recipe Card

A few years ago, I was given a treasured gift by being invited to join a recipe card club. Once a month, 12 of us get together to share laughter, stories, and an empathetic ear. There is a wide range of age, style, and circumstances. Officially, we are there to exchange our recipe cards, but, in reality, for us it has meant so much more. Something magical comes together in a creative way. The best part is that we bring food! We believe it would be "just plain wrong" for there to be a lack of treats and drinks any time women get together.

I used to frequent this wonderful restaurant back in the 70's. It was called the Magic Pan. Well, over the years the restaurant closed, but I managed to conjure up the recipe by sampling this salad each visit. It may not be the "exact" taste, but it comes pretty darn close. Whenever, I bring this salad to someone's house, it is definitely a big hit.

Sounds very yummy. To sure though I think we should do lunch. Let's see I'll bring the rolls, you bring the salad. Nice card.

This looks wonderful! We usde to got to the Magic pan for birthdays and anniversaries. it was a fun place to dine! My favorite on the menu there had to be the Crepes St. Jacques!
You weren't able to conjure up their basic crepe recipe, at the same time, were you?
What a fun post! What a trip down memory lane!
