We served 140 guests, but prepared 160 plates in preparation of accidents or spills. I'm pleased to say there were no accidents or spills. The serving went quickly and smoothly by volunteers.
All our food items were provided and prepared by volunteers. As I planned the menu, my goal was to select tasty, attractive, easy-to-make recipes. I taste-tested every food item. If the food passed my approval, GJ, AJ and my friends Patty and Mary taste-tested and approved the foods. There were several I made that did not pass my test.
The menu we served included:
Cheddar Carrot Tea Sandwiches
Shrimp & Dill Tea Sandwiches
Sweet Potato & Country Ham Biscuits
Smoked Turkey & Cranberry-Orange Sandwiches
Olive Nut Tea Sandwiches
Grandma's Cinnamon Scones (named for this Grandma who made them)
Southern Belle Pecan Bites
Apple Butter Tartlets
Patty printed the recipes in a booklet, along with tea quotes and we made them available to our guests for a $2 donation to the Berea Health Ministry. Watch for a giveaway to be announced soon. I will be giving several items including one of our recipe booklets.
