On to Plan B........
So now we must solve the "spud" problem......what to do, what to do? Back to the piata we go for 80 more potatoes. The morning of the party we wash, peel, slice and put them into buckets of cold salty water. Then 1 1/2 hours before the dinner is to be served, we race home to start boiling and mashing.
We walked into the serving room with our pans of mashed potatoes at exactly 6:00pm. However, when we got home that night at 11:00pm we found that angels from on high had not come into our kitchen while we were gone.
Remains of the Dinner
The missionaries managed to eat almost everything on the table. After the dinner they were allowed to take home left overs and the rest disappeared. Thanks to all the Senior Couples in the Buc zones we served an almost traditional Christmas dinner. Instead of turkeys, we had chickens and pork roasts in place of ham. There was the traditional red jello (thanks Jennifer!) and corn. Delicious glaced carrots replaced yams. We even had dressing, green bean casserole and gravy. We love our missionaries and they let the seniors walk away from the kitchen without looking back. They had that building spotless by the time the night ended.
And because we just couldn't resist..........
