On Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m., tables are set
up, and the vegetables are cleaned and cut up for the
pickled cabbage.
Early Friday morning at 8:00 a.m. we start
making the pickled cabbage and stuffing. (Some
foods are just better when their flavors can mingle –
just watch the cooking shows, you’ll see.)
Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m. we start cleaning
the meat off the turkeys, which is easier if the turkeys
are warm. Those of you who clean your own turkeys
and then deliver them really help to speed up this
process. Final food preparations are made at 2:30
p.m. – making potatoes and gravy, and heating up the
turkey, vegetables and stuffing so that everything is
hot and ready for 3:00 p.m. Actually serving the
supper begins at 3:00 and goes to about 7:00 p.m.
We can always use lots of hands for serving food,
working in the kitchen, busing tables, and waiting on
tables. By 7 pm it’s nice to have a clean-up crew
come in. The tables need to be cleared, tablecloths
and chairs wiped down, Sunday School rooms put
back into order and the walls put back up. The
roasters and pots are washed and put away until the
next supper. The kitchen cleaned and floors washed
and vacuumed. Come out and lend a hand. This is a
great way to support our church and its missions and
have fun while doing it!!
