A Hickory Flat Elementary School mom turned up the flavor in a cornbread recipe to win the second annual CCSD School Nutrition Parent Recipe Contest!
Lindsay Mattison, whose daughter, Devyn, is a Hickory Flat ES kindergartner, won the $100 Visa gift card prize sponsored by Credit Union of Georgia and saw her Cheesy Turnip Cornbread recipe on CCSD school lunch menus last week.
Recipes were required to use fresh turnips or fresh turnip greens, the Georgia Organics' Farm to School Month vegetable of the year, and be simple (with fewer than 10 ingredients); be easily prepared; and not require grilling or frying.
Her winning recipe also is this month’s Recipe of the Month for CCSD School Nutrition, and is featured on the CCSD website at http://bit.ly/CCSDrecipewinner20 and in the monthly CCSD Connections parent newsletter.
