May bake huge success

Members enjoyed a great evening on 21st May with Market Harborough WI’s May Bake.  The theme was vegetables.  Many members brought along food to share.  It could be sweet or savoury as long as it contained vegetables.  You can see the results below (go to the foot of this post to download copies of many of the recipes):

May-bake monthly meeting – vegetables

Sort out your favourite vegetable recipe (sweet or savoury) and bake it for the next vegetabes-w500-h500monthly meeting on 21st May.  You will be able to share your baking with members, as well as sampling lots of new, innovative ideas which you can then try out on friends and family.

Don’t forget to bring a copy of the of the recipe (or, ideally, several copies) so these can be pegged up for other members to take home to try out for themselves.  We’ll be putting digital copies on the website, too, after the meeting.

Members will also be able to have fun in teams and take part in one of our popular quizzes.  This, too, will be on the theme of ‘vegetables.’   Time to dig deep now to brush up on those unusual facts.
