We're going to attend the Mennonite Central Conference Relief Sale in Kansas.
It's a very important event in our lives.
My mother in law was an annual volunteer.
It's a time to donate to a very worthy cause that's helps many throughout the world.
We shop, we eat, we attend the auctions, we eat, we spend time with family and friends and we eat!
All of the money raised goes directly to Mennonite Relief.
It's our way of giving back.
I head directly to a booth that sells cookbooks and family recipe books from Mennonite and Amish families. I've amassed a very impressive collection.
Many of my recipes come from these books.
I'll post new recipes from the new books that I buy at the sale next week.
I love vintage handwritten recipe books that have a connection to family.
I like the fact that all of the money raised goes to a good cause.
