As a librarian, I am really happy to see so
much interest on the
website in books. Which leads into my request to present and
former Chixters: I am putting together a Chicksands cookbook and
would like input from those who might wish to contribute recipes.
Brigadier Holtom has OK'd this idea, and I am chomping at the bit
to get started on this. As Chicksands is gaining recognition for its
apples, recipes containing apples or apple products are of primary
interest. I will happily accept English or American recipes, and I am
also looking for some British regional recipes or favorites from the
pubs and restaurants from the Bedfordshire area. Fun to include
might simply be a listing of those favorite foods which some of us
miss greatly. For me, its bangers and orange squash, plaice,
authentic British fish and chips with malt vinegar, McVitie's Jamaican
Ginger Cake, Cadbury chocolate, Penguin biscuits, pork pies,
Ribena, anything containing currents, etc. Ah....food for the gods!
Also, any interesting experiences about British foods might be
included. I can recall one which still makes me chuckle. I envision
the book to be sprinkled with local trivia and the like. This book will
help raise funds for Chicksands. Please help make it a success by
submitting a recipe(s)(or other input), with complete ingredients
and measures, cooking time and temperature, etc. I'll have a
conversions table for measure and oven temperatures, sugar
equivalents, etc. E-mail submissions to the above, or regular mail,
to my attention, at AEDC Technical Library, 100 Kindel Drive, Ste
C212, Arnold AFB, TN 37389. Include your name and, if you wish,
your address. As Delia Smith, Gary Rhodes, or Julia Child would
say, bon appetit!

I just received my Chicksands Fighting Chicks shirt from Bill Grayson.
Now, I will only have to purchase a few more wardrobe pieces before the
reunion. Seriously though, the shirt is high quality and very
appropriate. A small part of the price of the shirt goes to the reunion
fund with the remainder of the cost going towards the shirt and postage.
I understand there are limited quantities - so order yours today. To
order your shirt send a check or money order for $29.00 to Bill Grayson
at Chicksands Alumni and Friends, PO Box 4053 Crofton, MD 21114. Don't
forget to specify your size. Thanks. Cheers Becky Fahey, SW Fund Raising
