April Showers us With Great Food!

Well the weather didn’t dampen our spirits, though it dampened everything else! I confess I am a divided hostess, with one foot in the world of vegan cooking and one foot in the world of at-risk readers. However, the rest of you were at the top of your game. Though Roger offered more succulent food drawings, I think an enticing array of the name cards will suffice.

Why is it I never actually get to see Marie?? Speaking of name cards, Griff has nominated a committee to get us some–for people! With so many new people coming every month, it does seem inevitable. BUT to keep it as low-waste as possible, we’ll opt for the necklace version and you can leave them at our house until next time. Thank you, Christine, for your assistance with this. Until the name tags emerge, go back and look at your photos! to reacquaint yourself with your new friends.

Our special guest Kelly LeCoy of Uptown Kitchen is pictured here (on the right) with Caitlin Prins (left) and Kelly Elders (middle).

Christine, Jamie and Susan found a corner table to enjoy visiting.

It was delightful to have Oliver, food enthusiast and gardener, bring his mom, Catherine Creamer, to their first supper club. They are pictured here with friend Meribeth Nudelman-Fields (on the left)

Michael, Roger and Johnny decided to wait for the crowd to subside before filling up their plates.

Though the dessert table was a bit sparse–noticeably absent were bakers Kris, Morgan and Molly, Rosebud brought a lovely applesauce cake and there was a blueberry dessert that–well even the crumbs were gone–thank you, Tillie! Still the stews and soups and grain salads were amazing. Geoff brought a polenta cake topped by carmelized leeks, Michele Sellers brought an amazing yam and peanut stew with kale and Kevin Schalkofski brought pizzas from the new Kult Pizza. I do believe there were some ‘chicken’ wings from Stella’s, courtesy of Dave Ogren.

You tell me, do these ladies look satisfied? Jillane and Medha, of course!
