Last night we had our monthly potluck here at Stillwaters.
This regular foray into the culinary talents of this neighborhood is a “must try at least once” event. Regular shows at the table are meatballs, wonderful casseroles, salads, a yummy cheesy cauliflower treat, deviled eggs and an array of desserts that include lemon, pumpkin, apple and berry pies and many things chocolate!
Last night’s potluck also included two special presentations. First, Sherri Garland showed a series of pictures from last
Christmas, with the reminder that this is the last potluck until January. It’s time to prepare for the holidays and especially the Resident’s Christmas Dinner on December 15th here in the Gathering Place.
Second, was a brief piano concert played by Bogey V. a resident of Colonial Residence. He will be back January for a full concert of music. Check out this YouTube link to see this talented player. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLOH-mZvjqA. We often have special programs at potluck and this makes for a special evening out with friends.
Here is a little bit of Potluck Trivia:
Deviled Eggs which became popular at church potlucks in the south were referred to as “Dressed Eggs”. The name Deviled Eggs dates back to the 18th century.
Come join the fun at the next Potluck in January!
