Dresden Duplicate Bridge Club
By: By Toni Pritchett
Dresden Duplicate Bridge Club met on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at the usual time, 12:30 p.m. Sixteen faithful, charming players were there. We all agree that bridge is more than a pastime. Players return to the table time and time again for the mental challenge, the competition and the company of others who share their love of the world’s greatest card game.
We will have our Christmas party Wednesday, Dec. 5. We will meet at 11:30 at the Chinese Restaurant in Dresden, and I extrapolate that when we have food, there will be lots of people to show up!
Wednesday we had cheese, fancy nuts, wasabi peas, carrot sticks, stuffed celery, cream cheese and chives, chocolate candy and delicious bundt cake with caramel icing.
Winners were Freddye Oliver and Toni Pritchett, first place; Bess Williams and Lois Harbour, second place; and Sarah Pentecost and Tom Beard, third place.
We had this carrot casserole at Thanksgiving. My daughter, Peg Crawford, made it.
3 cups frozen carrots (crinkle cut)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons oleo
1/2 cup crushed pineapple
Cook carrots in water until tender; drain well. Combine all ingredients; mix well. Place in buttered casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
Thought for the day: The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts the minute you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get to the office. (Sometimes it could be: It does not stop until you get to the bridge table.)
