Come and Dine

There is a hymn that says:

Jesus has a table spread, where the saints of God are fed, he invites his chosen people come and dine . . .

Well, this sunday we are having a church dinner on the grounds. Or, what we call an Eatin' Meetin'. You see, our pastor's last name is Eaton. TeeHee!

I love to have church dinners, they are such fun. We have a lot of single people in our church, and most of them don't cook. So they get to enjoy some good, old-fashioned country cooking.

So, I am taking . . .

Salisbury Steak in Onion Gravy
Mashed Potatoes
7-Layer Salad
Cheesy Broccoli and Cauliflower (done in the crockpot)
Homemade Brioche Rolls
Rhubarb Cake
Chocolate Torte

Normally, I would not take quite as much, but my 2 neices and their mother and their children are supposed to come, so I want to be sure there is enough to go around.

Mom is bringing Fried Chicken, potato salad and coleslaw.

I will be sharing some of these recipes with you - you already have the recipe for the rolls and the Salisbury Steak and the potato salad.

Hope everyone has a fantabulous weekend, I will post some pictures later. DS has the camera and he is gone for the day.
