Diner in the Diner
I recently shared on FaceBook that I had made a pot of gumbo from scratch. This post was made without too much thought, as are most posts on social media. A friend soon requested that I share the recipe on a FaceBook group called Home Cooked Soul Food. This inquiry caught me off guard a little bit as food is generally not a topic I write about.
Now both of my grandmothers could cook and I do dabble in it a bit myself. Some of the things they cooked I remember and some I have forgotten. Grandma Scorsone made a good gumbo, the recipe to which she wrote down many years ago on a few scraps of paper. Of course I have improvised a bit since then and the scraps of paper are long gone.
So in the Meridian Speedway world there is a place for food, specifically menus and recipes, and that would be on board the dining car in the office car fleet. As President and CEO I do get to set the menu!
That being said, with this blog post I have created the "Dinner in the Diner" blog category. Here I will occasionally share recipes that in my world would be served in the dining car. It will also allow me to find the recipes when I need them!
Forthcoming will be my recipe for seafood gumbo!
