Susie has always loved to cook, learning from her mother and grandmother, who were always cooking homemade goodies and meals. Many years ago, she and her sister, Patti Hite, and their good friend Margaret Nelson made homemade meals and called their endeavor Peter Pantries, as Margaret and Susie were neighbors on Peter Pan Road. This business was a perfect way for them to make money while being “stay at home” moms. Later, their company went somewhat dormant as their children grew and they were pulled in different directions. For years, Susie got occasional requests from friends asking for one of her specialties, but she was busy teaching at CCS and then as head of women’s ministries at LMPC.
Now, Susie is so excited to offer some of her homemade goodies for us to purchase. People are clearly excited about this opportunity to put a fabulous meal on the table with no effort, and many people posted online about how delicious their first meal was.
This business is still in the growing stage, but right now she will post her weekly items on Monday and you can pick up your order at her Peter Pan home from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday. She will offer homemade soups, like chicken noodle, chicken corn chowder, and potato soup, as well as different entrees and side dishes. Famous for her homemade bread and desserts, Susie will be baking those, too. Her grandmother’s pound cake will be on the menu for $30, which has always been a crowd pleaser.
The menu will change weekly, but whatever it is, it will be fresh, homemade and delicious. Most items serve 4-6 and cost $25. She also added that this endeavor is a family affair since her husband, Lea, is a master griller! Remember, it is first come, first serve, so order quickly.
