Down Home Country Meal

I'll admit it, I'm obsessed with eating opportunities.

Saturday was the latest in ongoing fundraiser dinners (called supper, here) I've come to enjoy. This was the Boyscouts hosting a roast beef supper served family style and hence, all-you-can-eat for 8 bucks. Service is always good and well organized. You pay upstairs in the Lions meeting hall, then sit and watch a general interest TV station until there are enough eaters to make a full table of 8. It never takes long to be ushered to a waiting clean table.

The kitchen was full of Lions Club members who prepare the food with frivolity. They must have thought I was a reporter taking these pictures because I had on a Santa hat and just nosed my way in like I owned the place. Everybody was accommodating and let me take pictures as I pleased.

Dishes of food arrived at the table in swift succession and were passed with efficient cooperation of my new dining buddies. We had roast beef, mashed potatoes & gravy, baked carrots with a little brown sugar and cinnamon, cole slaw, rolls & butter. What a spread.

Pies, some home made by scout mothers, others store-bought, were served when everybody at the table had finished their eating orgy. We had our pick of any flavor on offer.

I plan to branch out to been feeds, and mac & cheese suppers.

  1. Mmm, tasty! This time of year, I get absolutely ravenous and can eat almost continuously throught the day and into the night. Your roast beef supper looks wonderful - I'll skip the mac & cheese, but bring on the pies!
