Example text

Steph seemed to be lonely and we really enjoyed his company, so we got together with him whenever we could. An open invitation was extended for Sunday dinners, and sometimes he even went along on short weekend trips. As a younger man Steph had worked as head of a large mule-skinning crew in Beaumont at Magnolia Refinery, now Mobil, in the days when mule-drawn wagons transported oil to various local destinations. He loved to reminisce about his days there, and since he was a great storyteller, we always listened intently.

Of course, many of the earlier recipes were never written down and subsequently may have gotten garbled through their oral transmissions. Because I wanted them to be as authentic as possible, I not only checked with several older cooks but also tested, tasted, and retested the majority of them myself. They taste just right. I've loved this project and will always be grateful to all the folks who shared their reminiscences and recipes with me. WANDA A. LANDREY Page xxiii Image not available.
