My Turn For The Lions Dinner Committee
The Camden Maine Lions Club meets twice a month, first and third Tuesday night.
We share a meal together before our business meeting.
Members are assigned to dinner committees, and the rotation is that each committee sets up and cooks for everyone about three times a year. This past Tuesday it was my turn to help cook.
I made a big salad to go with the chicken pot pies and biscuits that another Lions member (Cindy Wandell) made. This was a big meeting as we were hosting the families of the sixth grade Peace Poster contest winners, so I made A LOT of salad and two Mason jars of HEALTHY dressing.
I used a lettuce mix and layered in steamed broccoli, sliced sweet bell peppers (yellow, orange, and red), cucumbers, slivered carrots, slice radishes, a scattering of dried sweet cranberries, and red onion slivers.
The dressing was olive oil, red wine vinegar, maple syrup, herbs, lime juice, and drops of Young Living essential oils (tangerine, lemon, lime, and orange). It was delicious! Commercial dressings are chemical brews with fake flavorings and bad, bad oils. I won’t eat them.
Here’s our meal.
Other dinner committee members made a HOST of gorgeous pies and supplied whip cream and vanilla ice cream for toppings.
It was a very nice evening, and as always for me, there is a lot of gratification in doing something for other people that is healthy and life-giving. The Lion community means a lot to me.
