Hills Church Progressive Dinner
An Annual, Adult Event
Sponsored by Parish Life
Saturday, April 29, 2017
RESERVATION DEADLINE IS MIDNIGHT THIS SUNDAY, APRIL 23.
SIGN UP TODAY!
This year’s dinner is scheduled for Saturday, April 29, beginning at 6:00 PM in the Assembly Room for hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer, and soft drinks. (Each guest is asked to bring an appetizer to this cocktail hour at the church.) Then, we will progress to various members’ homes for dinner!
What’s on the menu, you ask? Chicken Pot Pie. In 2007, Kevin Weeks wrote an article for NPR entitled, “Restoring Humble Potpie to Its Rightful Place.” He wrote the following:
“The humble potpie was once the height of culinary style. Filled with four and twenty blackbirds, for example, it was, at least in the nursery rhyme, a dainty dish to set before the king.
During the Elizabethan era, these savory pastries — decorated with flowers, fanciful designs and heraldic devices — were elaborate assertions of the chef’s skill in the royal households of France and England. Among the lower classes, potpies were popular because the addition of a crust helped feed another mouth or two, while individual pies such as pasties, empanadas and pierogies were well-suited for sale by street vendors as portable meals.”
A refreshing salad will complete this course.
We will make all appropriate substitutions for our vegetarian and gluten free friends.
The main course, salad, and wine are provided by the Parish Life committee and delivered to the host houses in the afternoon. We ask hosts to provide a dessert for their guests but they are excused from providing an appetizer for the cocktail hour.
The cost of the event is $20.00 per person, payable at the door.
The Progressive Dinner is a WONDERFUL way to get to know the members of our church family a bit better!!
In addition to sharing a meal with our church friends, we ask you to share a meal with our community by bringing to the cocktail hour a canned food item for the food pantry.
