Third Sunday Dinner Report October

     October is the perfect month for an outside dinner party,  Third Sunday Dinner to be correct.  I have been waiting for the weather to break and start enjoying why we live in Arizona.  It certainly is not the summer heat.  
  When the weather cools we like to bring out the dutch ovens and do some heavy duty cooking.  This month we did Indian Fry Bread.  We like to do it at least twice a year.  It is filling and very cost effective to do.  Both are great reasons for doing it.  
 I hope you are having success in your food adventures from small groups to large, when we gather to enjoy great food life long friendships are formed.  That is the power of food.

Below is the picture adventure of this months Third Sunday Dinner.

Kidney beans and barley make a great topping for the Fry Bread.

  I love the youth that come and serve with happy faces.  I enjoy them so much and appreciate all they do to help make the dinners a success.

     Another Happy Working Face.   This young woman said she needed service hours so she came early and worked so hard.

So many to make and he still smiles. 

For a group that size I find the Bosch so vital in getting the job done.  We made
10 batches of dough.
The secret of fry bread is to form disc and let it rest before stretching out to fry.

After forming the disc, let rest covered. 

Dutch ovens with my camp fryer set up and ready to go.

She was enjoying the food to much to look up.  or maybe she
didn't want her picture taken.  

More people. 

And more people. 

Brother and sister.  We adore them both.

Who doesn't love the Mormon Missionaries. 

I adore these boys.  What outstanding men.  

Love that smile.

New found best friends. 

Are they sisters or mother and daughter, I am confused.

Brothers from the hood.

Happy friends. 


     Third Sunday Dinners are amazing and fun.  Each month finds me busy and often wondering how on earth I will be able to do it, but as I go forward it all works out and I am left filled with joy and peace knowing that when we are on the Lords Errands it always works out.   I hope you are finding joy in all you do.  Chef Brad
