Lord, The Work is Yours...

Monday, March 05, 2007

Over the holidays donors gave our families a bunch of turkeys, and there were four left over, so the community decided to use them. Three months later, three of them were still in our freezer taking up space. Ernest had just the solution to the dilemma:
This time it was bigger and better with a new group of contestants (well, two of them at least). Joel made his debut, along with Dan Rohan, San Miguel Chicago's IT director. The mission: Sunday community dinner. The ingredient: poultry. Since Joel had baked a turkey we had a lot to work with.

Ernest made a turkey and a chicken dish baked in a homemade cranberry based sauce. They were served alongside a Winter Salad made with Romaine lettuce, apples, pears, dried cranberries, cashews, cheese, and a homemade poppy seed dressing.
Joel made gluten free turkey dumplings with a wonderful orange sauce. It was coupled with aromatic garlic ginger rice. Dan broiled chicken breasts stuffed with ham, provolone cheese, onions, shallots, peppers, and secret spices. He also made some deliciously glazed carrots to go with it.
This time there were plenty of people to judge, but none of them were up to the task of giving the verdict, as all the dishes were equally delectable they said.
