Dresden Duplicate Bridge Club News
By: By Toni Pritchett
The Tuesday night bridge club met Tuesday, Dec. 11, with four tables of lovely ladies to have lots of fun playing this infinite game of bridge.
The season of the year prompted us to have a Christmas party, along with having a membership game. My oh my, what a spread of delicacies decorated the buffet table. To name a few, we had vegetable dip with crackers, ranch dip with crudités, homemade loaf bread with homemade pimento cheese, cream cheese almond ball, onion and cheese soufflé, potato chip cookies, pineapple cheese ball, fresh sliced pears and ham and cheese sandwiches on buns. (It is the kind of ham you cook in Coca-Cola® at 250 degrees for about 8 hours.) For dessert there were candy cookies with chocolate icing, strawberry cake and peppermint muffins surrounded by peppermint sticks.
All of the above was prepared by Fredricka Schfeiler, Charlotte Erwin, both of Union City, Margie Evans of Fulton, Diana Nerren of Hickman, Alma Ford, Pat Page and the rest from Dresden, Kathy Wilson, Kathy Chandler, Susie German, Gracie Parker, Jean Mayo, Joann Campbell, Becky Bennett and Linda Jennings. We missed Jane Young and Sandra Klutts.
Winners for the evening were Linda Jennings and Becky Bennett, first place; Susie German and Kathy Wilson, second place; and Margie Evans and Diana Nerren, third place.
The following recipe is Joann’s: Use one shank end Cooks shoulder. Soak shoulder in Coca-Cola® for two hours. Bake at 250 degrees for 8 hours. Joann said she put it on at 10:30 p.m. and took it up at 5:30 the next morning. It was delicious.
Thought for the day: The past cannot be changed; the future is still in your power.
Dresden Duplicate Bridge Club convened on Dec. 12, with 16 players present. What a comedown from last week when we had six tables. Christmas shopping must go on! There was so much gaiety and happiness in the air. All had so much fun with lots of laughter. The Friendship Cake Alma Ford baked brought very enthusiastic commendation from all. We also had cheese balls, a Knorr vegetable sour cream dip, fancy Girl Scout cashews, carrots, grapes, Colby Jack cheese and strawberry cake.
Winners were Freddye Oliver and Toni Pritchett, first place; Tom Beard and Sarah Pentecost, second place; and tied for third, Roberta Meyer, Carolyn Rogers, Carol Ehlers and Jackye Hohman.
The recipe for the week is from Linda Jennings who brought the following crabmeat slices.
1 (6 1/2 – 8 ounce) can crabmeat
1 (5 ounce) jar Kraft sharp cheese
2 tablespoons Hellmann’s mayonnaise
1/2 stick butter (real)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
5 English muffins, halved
Mix first five ingredients and spread on muffins; partially freeze. Cut into eight sections (pie shaped); freeze. To serve, thaw slightly; toast under broiler for 5 minutes. OUTSTANDING!
Thought for the Week: Looking ahead is a good way to keep from falling behind.
