ANTRIM TOWNSHIP, Pa. - The potpie dinner party tradition has continued, unbroken, for at least four generations, Kay Boward said. And Boward, 66, of Antrim Township, said it will stay that way. But she has since added another dish to the tradition - potpie bean soup. Boward said this recipe takes cues from two traditional recipes - potpie and beans with rivels. She starts with a homemade pork broth, then boils beans and bits of country ham and adds frozen potpie dough into the pot. The result is a bean soup with odd-shaped noodles, not quite as thick as rivels, but hearty enough to bump it over to what Boward calls "down-homey comfort food" status.

Keller Memorial Pavilion at Wolfsville Ruritan Club Park did just that. Ralph W. Morgan, 86, of Middletown, Md., who attended the event, said he has a deep connection to the Wolfsville Ruritan Club Park. Morgan, 86, said his great-grandfather, James Wesley Morgan, bought the piece of land that now is home to the park on Brandenburg Hollow Road in 1864.

CHEWSVILLE - This time of year, when the food supply was at its lowest, early German settlers soothed their hunger with slippery potpie. The month of February and the first two weeks of March are known as "the six-weeks' want," said culinary historian Sally Waltz. Because there wasn't much food, this was the time of year when survival meant living off of little, making a meal with the minimal. "So they were trying to find foods that were nourishing and required very few ingredients," Waltz said.
