Parents were quick to reply! Zoë and her classmates will be treated to a fantastic celebration of food and the pioneering spirit tomorrow!  The menu will include rabbit stew, hominy, corn muffins, whipped cream (churned to butter with luck and strong arms), mashed potatoes, muffins, maple syrup, vinegar pie and biscuits.

I offered to make the biscuits, and here they are. Some are austere and plain, but I added a little Michigan decadence to others — dried Montmorency cherries!

Happy Birthday Laura Ingalls Wilder!
