As promised in an earlier post, I recruited some friends to help me empty the freezer and the cupboard of food. The adventurous eaters came Friday night to contribute their stomachs to the quest.
- Lasagna (aka mystery casserole from the bottom of the deep freeze)
- Green bean casserole
- Carrot souffle
- Soup (made up of frozen meat and vegetables from the freezer and canned tomatoes)
- Cucumbers and tomatoes (a garden contribution)
- Gingersnaps, chocolate chip cookies, monster cookies, lime nut buttons (you’d think I had some kind of cookie obsession to find all of these in the freezer)
- Banket (Dutch pastry)
- Coconut cream pie
We had enough food for 2 or 3 parties.
As I looked around the table over our odd combination of food I realized once again how blessed I am to have friends like these and how much I will miss them this coming year.
Thank you, dear friends, for helping me empty the freezer and finish the canned goods.
