September 2015

 

Each month we have great programs and fellowship.  This month we will explore The Hidden Half of the Family, the Genealogy of Women.

Family history and lore are often shared around a dinner table, dessert follows dinner.  People relax, conversation flows, stories are told.  Here is you a recipe for a great dessert.   Enjoy . . . . .

Peach Cake

One large can of peaches, drained. 

2 cups flour; 2 cups sugar; 2 tsp baking soda

Mash peaches with a pastry cutter, you want them as mush.  Add the peach mash into a bowl containing the flour, sugar and baking soda.  You will think you need something liquid, but you don't.  Just mix it up until it is very well combined.   Dump it into and spread it out in a 9x12 greased and floured baking pan.  Bake 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Let it cool and then pour this hot frosting over it.

Frosting:

3/4 cups of sugar

1 - 12oz can of evaporated milk

1 stick of butter

4 cups of shredded coconut

1 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts

Combine sugar, butter, milk, and coconut; bring to a boil on stove top, stir constantly to keep from burning.  Boil about five minutes until it  thickens.  Remove from heat then fold in the nuts.  Let stand 10 to 12 minutes before putting on cake.  Refrigerate if you are not serving promptly.

We invite you to come celebrate and explore the craft of genealogy with us.  Hurdle brick walls with us, document your family history with us, and cry on each other's shoulder when we discover yet another burned courthouse.  Share and elebrate new discoveries with us. 

 

 They say it takes a village to "yada yada yada" and NTGA members are a village of fun, caring, enthusiastic folks who love genealogy. 

 

 Circle the wagons with us, come hear the band !!
