Every year the Solebury United Methodist Church sponsors a Ham Dinner to raise funds for different church activities. Donna and JoJo have been going the past few years as kinda a girls night out and they both enjoy the ham. I don’t, they do. They brought me a take out order to try and convince me I like it.
The take out order they brought me was a great value at $12. For that you get a big portion of sliced Virginia ham with raisin sauce, green beans, boiled red potatoes, coleslaw, apples sauce, two rolls and carrot cake. Since they went to the effort of bringing home an order, I had to at least taste the food and report back to you what it was like. Again giving so much to my craft.
The Virginia ham was very sweet, tender and favourful. The raisin sauce with very plump raisin, matched well with sweet and slight salty ham. You could tell the tasty green beans were fresh and cut up by kitchen crew earlier that day. The red potatoes were well cooked with a bit of parsley thrown in for decoration. The apple sauce was a good match for the ham, matching the sweetness in both. The coleslaw is fast becoming my favourite salad (tell us your favourite salad here). I like the contrast in the sweet dressing and the tart cabbage, the crispiness of the veggies and the creaminess of the total salad.
The surprise of the meal was the carrot cake. Most carrot cakes are very dense, the Church Supper cake was extremely light with a nice sweet frosting to match.
All in all, the meal was a success and a bit of a revelation for me, well it was a church supper. LOL. Perhaps next year I will attend in person.
