They want to come back!
Twenty-three parishioners carried in basket after basket of stews, salads, and desserts last Saturday for the New Zealand /Australia supper. Pat Griffith’s immense Pavlova (a meringue at least 14 inches in diameter topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream), Cindy Frost’s two kiwi lime pies and Deirdre Good’s trifle shared the dessert counter with other fruit pastries. Lamb stews, several curries, green salads, roasted asparagus, rice dishes and breads covered the main counter. Our seven guests from the Re-Entry Center found plenty to eat and lots of friendly company for their first meal with us. They want to come back.
Our next potluck supper – the 35th — will be July 13, but it will be a different kind of event. We are going to change course. From now on, St. Margaret’s monthly suppers will feature both “local favorite foods” as well as “global cuisine.” We want to make life easier and be more diner-friendly. For those who like trying something new, we will suggest foods from a different nation or region every month. For those who prefer the time-honored classics and their own family favorites, we will eagerly welcome (and sample) those dishes. You choose.
The July supper’s global focus will be Greek food. Recipes will appear on the Time and Talent Table this weekend. If you have a favorite recipe you’d like to share, add a copy to the folder. And if you like to eat, but don’t like to cook, bring along a loaf of store-bought bread or a carton of lemonade… or plan to stay and help us clean up. We love the help.
