A Yummy Retreat!

No retreat is complete without good food! Here are a few pictures of our culinary efforts at the retreat. Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of every meal we had, but I got a few. If some of the other ladies have pictures, I'll add them to the post later. Cathy and I were paired up to take care of the first evening's dinner and lunch the next day. Here is Cathy preparing her wonderful dinner of roast, fresh green beans, rice and squash. It was very good after driving to the cottage all morning and sewing all afternoon! I set the table and helped with the dishes after :-).

Cathy preparing her made from scratch apple crisp for dessert. It was very cool that day, so nice to have the oven on to warm up the kitchen:

We were so full from dinner that we waited til 9:00 for dessert with a cup of tea or coffee. Yum, yum!

I brought meatball soup, homemade whole wheat bread and a macaroni salad called Rotini Riot. It is from the Podleski girls' Looneyspoons cookbook.

Thursday evening's dinner was done by Ina. She brought Nasi Goreng (an Indonesian dish) with a salad and we even had kroepoek (shrimp crackers). Sure hit the spot after a busy day of sewing!

This was our breakfast/fruit/baked goods bar at the retreat. We were well taken care of!!
We now need to go on lots of walks to work off all that good food :-).
