Rehearsal for Thanksgiving
You won’t know how General Cornwallis liked his holiday yams unless you come to St. Margaret’s Global Cuisine Potluck next Saturday, Nov. 10. Judith Cox promises to make that old-time confection. Carol Whittle says she will bring a double portion of her now famous and much sought-after lima beans. Susie Kraeger, somewhat sheepishly, confided that her dish – a special fruit salad with kiwis, cranberries and nuts – also calls for a dose of Anisette. She won’t leave that out. Susie is also making an apple salad flavored with lemon and cumin.
This month we are encouraging all diners to bring two of their favorite Thanksgiving side dishes for the potluck. We hope everyone will print out their recipes so that the rest of us can copy them down. Sandy Gregory plans to make two Pennsylvania Dutch specialties. So far, she hasn’t divulged just what they will be. Tom Duplessie will make a corn custard pudding and a family favorite Jell-O ring with fruit and whipped cream. Our generous deacon also promises to roast a turkey for us. Maybe a few others will bring stuffing.
This might be a good time to invite a friend or neighbor to come with you to church. Our dinners are an easy introduction to the community. Dinner will be at 6. Come a bit earlier if your side dishes need to be reheated or assembled. Don’t forget to bring your own beverages. And, as always, non-cooks are warmly welcomed and invited to help us clean up.
