    Tinky, I have one day left. I can’t find anything truly Massachusetts-ish so I might just do a recipe using our local produce. I know I have that old American Heritage Cookbook someplace. The cover fell off and some of the pages are missing, but I know I wouldn’t have thrown it away. My fear is that I lent it to someone. Anyway, a promise is a promise and I’ll try to get something posted tomorrow. But if not, I might hold the blogathon open (unofficially) for one more week.
