Yearly Harvest Dinner
Each year church members gather for an autumn tradition, the Harvest Dinner. This year volunteers worked in teams of 10 for about 12 hours to create and serve the meal to approximately 125 people. The team prepared 140 pounds of roast beef, 100 pounds of potatoes, and 2 ½ cases of fresh green beans.
First stop was the salad.
The green beans were steamed nicely.
Great mashed potatoes.
The hot roast beef just kept coming.
The brown gravy was wonderful, tasty with a nice firm consistency.
The traditional old-fashioned bread stuffing is a real favorite. Since it was not stuffed in a turkey it’s probably best called dressing here.
Classic dinner rolls for those who have to have bread with dinner.
The finished product.
A selection of apple and pumpkin pies were available and the pie ladies were generous with the Cool Whip.
You need not be a member of Gainesville United Methodist Church to enjoy the Harvest Dinner, everyone is welcome. Tickets this year were $12. Check the web page or look for announcements on the Linton Hall Rd church sign next year. You don’t want to miss such an excellent home cooked meal.
