I expect that if you invited all your Irish friends and family over for dinner tonight you will not be just beginning to look this morning for an Irish recipe on Mennonite Girls Can Cook for your supper idea.
If you did happen to invite 30 people to dinner and you are stumped as to what you will serve them. ..
then rush on over there to find the Irish Stew to serve tonight.
It is a lot of experimenting that goes on over here.
When the experiments start to involve large groups of people the credit goes to the lot of them for taking part in what will eventually be a good idea.
A few weeks back I made this Irish Stew for our Pastorate Group.
It was enjoyed by all and the roasting pan was scraped clean.
It's hard to go wrong when you use some simple fresh vegetables that are readily available all year round.
A sprinkle of fresh herbs . ..some stock and a pile of home made meatballs and you have yourself a stew.
I'm always working on ideas for groups of 25. What is your favorite simple menu idea for a group?
While you are at it. .. jot down a list of people to invite over for a simple meal and a piece of pie.
Next. ..pick a date way in distance before people make plans. .
and then call them up.
When you invite people into your home you are telling them you value them and your relationship has worth.
When you make them a meal you not only satisfy their hunger you are also satisfying a human need we all have for companionship.
Blessing on you as you make your home. . .
a place where people feel welcome.
