Local Boy Scout Lincoln Jones discovered that when he and his fellow scouts from Troop 12 in Tupelo would go camping, they were eating a lot of the same meals. So Lincoln compiled a cookbook to provide variety for their cookouts.
Food editor Ginna Parsons (5:29) joins Derek and Brad on today’s episode to discuss Lincoln’s compilation. As the son of two former Cooks of the Week, Lincoln has a pedigree for cooking. The Boy Scout Troop 12 Cookbook, which can be found online at www.callmepmc.com, has 30 recipes divided into 10 categories.
Ginna also talks about the rest of this week’s food section. Cook of the Week Candise Brown of Tupelo didn’t cook at all when she was married 12 years ago but learned a lot while living in Washington D.C. and later joining a cooking club after moving to Tupelo. She is a firm believe in the importance of family dinner, and her specialties include Stromboli, Meatloaf Cake and Spaghetti Squash Parmesan, among others.
Plus, Ginna discusses a recent simple recipe she used for Spaghetti Alla Carbonara.
Also on today’s episode, Daily Journal chief photographer Thomas Wells (16:12) talks about his recent photo essay in which he spent three days capturing the crew preparing the grounds for a youth baseball tournament at Tupelo’s Ballard Park.
Scott (24:37) reviews “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” He said the movie “got it right,” and did a great job of capturing Peter Parker’s conflict of being a high school boy by day and trying to save the world by night.
Derek (32:51) has the highlights of the weekend entertainment scene. That includes the Slugburger Festival in Corinth; a performance of neo-soul, jazz and contemporary folk music at the Link Centre and country music legend Dwight Yoakam at BancorpSouth Arena. Derek also talks about next weekend’s performance of “Love, Loss and What I Wore” at Tupelo Community Theatre’s Off Broadway location and about upcoming concerts in the Tupelo Down on Main series.
