Super-sized Supper on January 10, 2011; Still Big on January 17, Too


Bitter outside, packed and sweet inside: that was January 10, 2011. One of the largest suppers ever filled 250 Campsie with standing diners, and sent seated ones most of the way up the front hall steps. Fun! Some of what we enjoyed, from the food description slips left behind:
  •  Chili Meat + Cashews
  • Reed Valley Applesauce canned with love
  • Chicken Veggie Soup
  • Potato Salad
  • Guac: cilantro, onion, tom, lil heat
  • Spicy Rice: Veggie friendly
  • Liver Paté
  • Rice and Jerk Chicken
  • Pimiento Cheese

  • Broccoli Cauliflower Peanut Salad
  • SPICY Pumpkin Enchilada Casserole with Green Chili Cilantro Salsa; vegetarian, gluten-free
  • Bacon-Cheddar Cornbread Pudding. no gluten
  • Black Bean Brownies
On January 17, after a wonderful MLK Day -- one of Lexington's best days each year -- about 35 people gathered, many of them people who cannot come regularly on Monday nights because of classes or other activities that were not held on the holiday.


Food descriptions slips left behind:
  • Veg Beef Soup
  • Butternut Squash w/Collards & berebere (African spice); vegan
  • Pasta & Cheese & Things
  • Apple Sauce With Horseradish
  • Suzanne's Brown Bread
  • Homemade Fromage Blanc (unpasteurized cultured Kentucky milk); good for schmears; bland, slightly salty

And may your documentarian note that this was a particularly amazing night for wines. A big array, interesting bottles, and attentive sippers, all convivial.
