Lemon Curd and Jesus

My sweet friend called to say I have not been blogging enough. So I guess I will tell you about our Christmas Party at church.

Yes, I was back in the kitchen for 2 full days.  Yes, I had food slung all over the kitchen again. When the pastors wife would walk in she would say " That's my RQ" then she would giggle. Someone else handled the salad.

This year we had a tea. We had a tea that looked like it was out of the St. Francis Hotel. I must say we did a good job on the food. We had chicken cranberry salad sandwiches, pinwheel sandwiches, cucumber appetizer, salad, 3 different flavor scones, lemon curd  and a million tiny desserts.

73 women showed up for our tea.

I made up this fun game, even though it took way to long. I filled 12 tea cups with a different kind of tea in each cup. I took the label off the tea bag.  Each table had 2 representative come up, they could look and smell the tea but not drink it. I these teas:
  1. Perfect Peach
  2. Liptons black
  3. Carmel Vanilla
  4. Ginger snap
  5. White tea
  6. Camiemal 
  7. Black tea
  8. Green tea
  9. Pomegranate
  10. Raspberry
  11. Mint
  12. Sugar Cookie
I could not believe it one lady got 9 out of 12.  The people who participated in this game seemed to really think it was fun. I think the others were board.

This young lady spoke at our tea. Her name is London. She is only 19. London did a great job at speaking. She talked about the hustle and bussle of Christmas, and how for Christians  Jesus is the reason for the season.( I hate that saying but it sums up what she said quite well)

The pastors wife did an "alter call" and people excepted Jesus into their life. It was all very exciting.

I was walking around talking to people after the party was over. Many were telling me they had never eaten scones or lemon curd. Gunpoint had never seen such happiness. Lemon Curd and Jesus. What a great combination! The party was a great success!
