In my last post I showed you pictures of the centerpieces I used for a community dinner dance.
Last Saturday night they set sail again for a neighborhood Covered Dish Supper.
This is one of my favorite covered dishes, from Villeroy and Boch scooped up at a great price at a sale.
I bought the blue and white fabric at the Duralee Outlet. I used 2.5 yds for each 6 ft table, so each cloth cost me 6.00. They are heavy weight fabric, and I am sure they will be used many times.
The sailboats were on clearance for .70 cents, and I filled them with hydrangea.
The cloth napkins and stainless flatware were tied in a blue ribbon.
Different shaped shell votives , also from Christmas Tree Shop were .80 cents and again, will be used for other parties.
There were over 80 adults and 15 children.
Three long tables held the salads, main dishes and desserts . Each family was asked to bring a main dish enough to feed their group plus 3, and a salad or dessert. There was plenty of food!
A fresh pear cake...
Pork Fried Rice
The way I make it is similar to the recipe in the newest Rachel Ray magazine. She used pulled pork in hers, I use a loin of pork cut into chunks. We like more pork than rice!
Here's another of hers,but I don't use ginger or peppers.
Dh made a pot of his famous chili, and I made a pot of New England Clam Chowder too.
A wonderful summer evening in a very special place!
