{On the importance of Sunday Dinner.}

In which her ladyship, the editor, bakes a pound cake, Mr. William Faulkner pays his bills, eventually, Mr. Pat Conroy is told to read a book with the same reverence he might give Edith Wharton (he does so) and Burke's Bookstore gets a bicycle and names it "Hawie."

Dearest Readers,

Sunday DinnerHer ladyship, the editor, has recently been spending more time in her kitchen. Partly this is because the temperatures have at last deigned to drop down to the mid-eighties--the maximum allowable temperature wherein her ladyship is still willing to turn on her oven. But also, her ladyship has be inspired by a recent edition to her (admittedly over-flowing) cookbook library: Bridgette Lacy's Sunday Dinner.  It's a deceptively slim volume to cause such a flurry of activity in the kitchen, and in late summer, no less. But her ladyship need only utter the name of but one of the recipes to make her readers understand the need to turn on her oven:

Nilla Wafer Brown Pound Cake 

Lacy's book is one the recent editions of the "Savor the South" series published by UNC-Chapel Hill, which tend to focus on specific ingredients--"Buttermilk," "Peaches," "Bourbon" -- or specific recipes: "Biscuits," "Fried Chicken."   But Sunday Dinner is a  little different: it is a book about a ritual -- the act of gathering together at table, of reconnecting with family and friends over a shared meal.

As such, the book is filled with as many memories as there are recipes, and it naturally prompts one to revisit one's own recollect of meals shared, past and present. Her ladyship, the editor's own mother was very adamant on the subject of a family sitting down together for a meal, Sunday or otherwise. The television was turned off. The phone was ignored, and no one left the table until everyone had finished their meal. So firmly was the tradition of the family meal ingrained in her ladyship's conscience, that to this day, even in an era of microwave meals, pizza deliveries, and casual dining on the go, her ladyship still finds it unpardonably rude when someone checks their phone messages while they are sitting at the dinner table. 

Sunday Dinner is a call to make time for this tradition in our lives, which in turn is really a call to make time for the people in our lives who matter to us. There are some suggestions as to how to go about this (Sunday dinner doesn't have to be on a Sunday, Lacy point out) and what one might do to make the meal as special as the people you have invited to eat it (use the good china, the author suggests, what are you saving it for?). 

And whilst fried chicken may be the traditional centerpiece of Sunday Dinner in the South, the meal is really about the love, whatever one serves. 

And the Nilla Wafer Brown Pound Cake. Trust her ladyship on this.

Read independently. And shop local.

Lady Banks' Pick of the Week


Lady Banks' Commonplace Book


Noteworthy poetry and prose from her ladyship's bedside reading stack.

Sunday DinnerPapa’s Nilla Wafer Brown Pound Cake

Papa’s signature desserts were his pound cake, coconut pie, and hermit cake. Some of the best times I ever shared with Papa were during the execution of these pastries. I loved watching the master at work. Papa cooked with the precision of a chef, carefully measuring his flour with a leftover sugar box. The fragrant perfume of butter and vanilla extract would fill the house. My grandparents’ kitchen was below the guest room. That room had a floor grate, so the aroma of food being cooked downstairs rose to the upstairs rooms. When Papa took his pound cake out of the oven and turned it out, he’d inspect its color. “Nilla wafer brown, nilla wafer brown,” he’d pronounce. That meant it was a good one.

Makes 10–12 Servings

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 Crisco Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Baking Stick
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 5 medium eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups cake flour
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (5 1⁄3-ounce) can Carnation sweetened condensed  milk
  • 2 ounces water
Prepare a fluted Bundt cake pan by coating the inner surface with the residue from the butter wrapper.

Using an electric mixer, cream the butter, shortening stick, and sugar until fluffy. Crack the eggs into a separate bowl and, with the mixer running, slowly add them into the mixing bowl. Add the vanilla.

Sift together the flour and salt into a separate bowl. Combine the condensed milk and water. Add 1⁄3 of the flour mixture to the creamed butter mixture and mix well. Add 1⁄2 of the milk and water mixture and beat well. Add another 1⁄3 of the flour mixture, the rest of the milk, and then the rest of the flour mixture, beating well after each addition.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Tap the pan on the counter to release the air bubbles.

Place in a cold oven and set it at 325°. Bake for about 1 hour or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Turn the cake out onto a plate. Let it cool before serving.

Triangle Reads


Book & Author Gossip

UNC Chapel Hill 9/11 literature course called sympathetic to terrorists

The Reluctant FundamentalistAn English class offered at UNC Chapel Hill this fall called “Literature of 9/11” explores the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks from the perspective of radical Islamists and those who view America as an imperialist nation. The reading assignments for the class, which includes poems, memoirs and graphic novels, present terrorists in a sympathetic light and American political leaders as greedy, war hungry and corrupt.

Others don't agree

He states that, “The readings mostly focus on justifying the actions of terrorists – painting them as fighting against an American regime, or mistaken idealists, or good people just trying to do what they deem right.” One specific example he cites is Mohsin Hamid’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist, describing it as, “the fictional tale of a successful Pakistani in America who gradually comes to believe America is imperialistic and evil.” This is an incredibly narrow-minded, reductionist, and misleading summary of the book (which, as previously emphasized, Dent has not read). 

The Headmaster's Darlings

The Headmaster's DarlingsWhat would motivate a New York Times bestselling author to travel from his home in Beaufort, S.C. to Birmingham to promote a book he didn't write?Well, it depends. Do you want Pat Conroy's serious answer, or his (much more amusing) sarcastic answer? "Katherine (Clark) told me to approach it with reverence, as though writing an introduction to Jane Austen, Edith Wharton, Joyce Carol Oates ..." Conroy says, explaining the process of writing his introduction to Clark's "The Headmaster's Darlings." 

Burke's got a bike!

Our delivery bike campaign was a HUGE success! We not only met the goal but exceeded it by nearly $1000. This means that we can add a small trailer and additional cargo box to the trike.  Thanks to all of you who contributed to this campaign, and especially to the extended Beeson family who contributed generously in honor of former Burke's owner Harriette Beeson (1984-2000). In honor of her, we have decided to name the bike  "The Hawie" (Harriette's nickname).

Above the Waterfall

Above the WaterfallRash is an enormously gifted storyteller, who knows exactly how to keep the dramatic tension in his fiction as taut as a fly line with a lunker on the hook. “Above the Waterfall” — the title refers to the brook trouts’ pristine habitat — moves seamlessly from present to past and back to the present again as Rash reveals his characters and the mountain fastness that has shaped them.

Inaugural Mississippi Book Festival exceeds expectations

The inaugural Mississippi Book Festival, which celebrated the state’s literary legacy August 22, drew an audience of approximately 3,500 to the capitol grounds in Jackson. The exceeded turnout—festival organizers were bracing for about 2,500—was a good sign for the free, daylong festival.  More than 60 authors, including John Grisham (who delivered the festival's keynote address), Greg Iles, Rick Bragg and Ellen Gilchrist, participated in discussions and readings throughout the day. Panels, which were all at capacity, touched on a range of topics, from civil rights to Southern fiction.

Mr. Faulkner pays his bills. Eventually.

After the U.S. government, his top debtors were “the grocers and fuel people who in their kindness have supplied myself and my dependents with food and heat during this time, and to whom I owe a lot more than even Estelle [his wife] et al managed to get into you for.” “If this don’t suit you, the only alternative I can think of is, in the old Miltonic phrase, sue and be damned. “After Uncle Sam gets through with his meat-cutting, J.E. Neilson can have what is left. You may even get an autographed book. That will be worth a damn sight more than my autograph on a check dated ten months from now.

Okra Picks

From the Okra Picks

The Gates of EvangelineFrom modern-day Roanoke Island to the sweeping backdrop of North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains and Roosevelt's WPA folklore writers, past and present intertwine to create an unexpected destiny. Restaurant owner Whitney Monroe is desperate to save her business from a hostile takeover. The inheritance of a decaying Gilded Age hotel on North Carolina's Outer Banks may provide just the ray of hope she needs. But things at the Excelsior are more complicated than they seem. Whitney's estranged stepfather is entrenched on the third floor, and the downstairs tenants are determined to save the historic building. Searching through years of stored family heirlooms may be Whitney's only hope of quick cash, but will the discovery of an old necklace and a Depression-era love story change everything?

In the Kingdom of IceIn the Kingdom of Ice by Hampton Sides

Recommended by NANCY: "Less than one hundred and fifty years ago, the prevailing scientists and explorers of the day believed that there was likely a polar sea at the top of the world. Many believed that once there, they would discover warm currents, new forms of marine life, and perhaps even human beings never encountered before. The challenge was to break through the seemingly impenetrable ice that formed a circle around this sea. In the Kingdom of Ice recounts the voyage of one ship and the thirty-three men aboard as they attempt to find a passage to the North Pole. It is a gripping tale of daring and survival, and a book that I could not put down for two rainy days in July. If you enjoy historical non-fiction that celebrates the human spirit of exploration, you need to read this book!" 9780307946911

Let Me Explain YouLet Me Explain You by Annie Liontas

Recommended by AMANDA: "There's something so perfectly universal about a novel about family, and Let Me Explain You is no different. Stavros Stavros Mavrakis - Greek immigrant, father of three, proprietor of the Gala Diner - believes that he will be dead in ten days. With this in mind, he writes an e-mail to his estranged ex-wife and three grown daughters, telling them exactly how they should "fix" their lives. His family writes off the e-mail as a cry for attention, but when Stavros goes missing they begin to reevaluate their own lives and his place in them. This is a hilarious and tender novel about fathers and daughters, love, loss, and the impact our decisions have on those we love. You'll laugh, you'll cry -- it's a veritable Greek tragicomedy!" 9781476789088

Never Always SometimesNever Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid

Recommended by STEFANI: "A funny and poignant teenage love story that is smarter than the average YA novel. Alsaid doesn't takes sides with the popular or unpopular students of this high school. Dave and Julia consider themselves outsiders and don't mind not fitting in, but when they make a pact to do all ten things on their "Never List" during their Senior year, they find out just how much in common they have with every other teenager on the road to adulthood. Take it from a middle-aged lady with the heart of a lovesick teenager: it’s a good read." 9780373211548
