I just got home at 8:30 pm. from working at the fall church supper after cleaning my pie tables and I'm pretty tired to say the least. We got 138 pies and  Margaret and I worked out a sweat cutting non stop until 6:00 pm.  and put pieces in plates of course. We had several pies left.The church supper is over until the spring and it was a great success even though so many of our regular workers were no longer able to work or were sick or away etc., but we pulled it off. We had a continuous flow of people coming to eat and also had 109 take out dinners, lots of positive comments.
The menu included turkey, mashed potatoes, squash, peas, dressing, gravy, cranberries, rolls, assorted pickles, pies and layer cakes, tea and coffee, milk for the kids.  We normally feed about 800 people and use beautiful round tables so people can see each other when they eat. I don't know the tally for this one.

I didn't bring my camera because I was in a rush again, beside I had too many details to take care of. So my blog post is short this evening. Thanks for your visit.  JB


  1. That sounds so good. Its hard to beat a good old fashioned Church supper. Now that its over you can rest (and eat the leftover pie)

  2. Hi Kim, After seeing so many pies and cakes, it the last thing I want to see. Lol. Oh yes, the cake I baked for my husband was also given to the church because they were worried that they didn't had enough but they had lot to spare. JB

  3. What happens to the rest of the pies? Yum!!!

  4. Hi Dulcy. The rest of the pies went to the soup Kitchen as well as all the left over food. Some workers took some food home but I never took anything home. I always have enough food at home anyway. JB
