Governor, Congressman Contribute to Cookbook Published by Framingham Democrats

Whip up a bowl of Congressman Ed Markey's Mass-Paragus Soup or consider making Elizabeth Warren's Peach Cobbler with the new Yes We Can Cookbook, by the Framingham Democratic Town Committee.

Not sure what to make for dinner this weekend?

Consider picking up the Yes We Can Cookbook, published by the Framingham Democratic Town Committee. Released in June, the committee compiled the cookbook featuring appetizers, soups, entrees, desserts and more.

State Rep. Tom Sannicandro shared his white chicken recipe, while Gov. Deval Patrick shared his Lemon Chicken recipe.

For dessert, consider State Senator Karen Spilka's cheesecake recipe or U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth  Warren's Peach Cobbler recipe.

The cookbook costs $20 and contains recipes from “famous and not so famous” Democrats, said Norma Shulman of Framingham.

Anyone making a $20 donation to the Framingham Democratic Town Committee for the coordinated campaign fund, received the cookbook as a gift. The cookbook is a fundraiser for the Committee.

Other "famous" recipes include Lt. Governor Tim Murray's 'Grandmother W's Irish Soda Bread,' Congressman Edward Markey's Mass-Paragus Soup, Massachusetts treasurer Steve Grossman's Grilled Chicken and Rep. Tom Conroy's Red Thai Curry Chicken. There are several other local and state officials who contributed recipes and one recipe contributed from the Obama White House.

Locals, including School Committee Member Bev Hugo, Betty Muto, Planning Board member Stephanie Mercandetti, Town Meeting member Kathie McCarthy, Selectman Dennis Giombetti, Planning Board Chair Tom Mahoney, Town Meeting member Renee Faubert, Pam Roberts, Library Trustee Ruth Winett, Selectman Jason Smith and Cheryl Tully Stoll and so many others contributed recipes to the cookbook, also.

Cookbooks may be available for purchase tonight at the Concert on the Green but you can also obtain a cookbook via mail.

Send $20 plus $4 shipping (total of $24 per book) payable to Framingham Democratic Town Committee to:

How about a book about what your going to do to save the town and the state. Your nice get along with everyone's policies are killing us. You seemed more concerned with saving tress and brush then what is the best thing for the citizens of the town, and I did say Citizens. Jim@ccfiile.com

Tim Murray's took a "crash" course in cooking for his recipe. Deval Patrick "border jumpers" jalapeño dip is something to cross the border or go back on the other side for. Obama jerk chicken has a warning that if you eat it and get sick too bad, your hospital bills will not be covered. Markeys recipe is so good it should be illegal. it's personally delivered by an undocumented driver on the street facing his Framingham office. He's running out of translators for the delivery help though. Elizabeth Warrens peach cobbler will make you stay a cobbler. The old saying " the cobbler goes without shoes" will literally come true...and more so.. Without pants, teeth, house, car....... Joe Rizoli

I guess this goes back to the old political saying "a chicken in every pot". But there is no chicken just a dream of having one. Jim@ccfiile.com
