Parish festival eats

Summer is the time for traditional parish festivals with their seemingly unending quantities of fried chicken, casseroles, salads and pies. Those looking for good eats and friendly crowds could potentially go festival hopping each weekend since the events are frequently posted on diocesan websites.

The Dialog, newspaper of  the Diocese of Wilmington, Del., brings a bit of these festivals home in its June 24 issue (pages 12-13) where it highlights recipes from parish cookbooks from the 1970s to more recent collections. The article features recipes directly from these fundraising books for crabcakes, ribs, chicken dishes, cakes and a pretzel salad with Jell-O and Cool Whip which likely falls under the category of either you like it or you don’t.
