Feeding men and boys … no, just men

A tossed Caprese salad served at Sacandaga Bible Conference.

When the tongs are being used for gravy, spoons are set — handles and all — into the vegetables and salads go uneaten, you’re eating feeding either 8-year-olds or men.

A men’s group from the Schroon Lake area joined us this year, as they have for the last two years. Although now that I think about it, there were a few boys, too.

They spent a lot of the weekend playing hard and getting dirty, riding four-wheelers all day Saturday right up until the rain poured down. They worked up quite the appetite. Here’s what they ate:

Roast beef in gravy
Mashed potatoes
Cauliflower with curried butter
Green beans with garlic sauce
Rosemary ciabatta
Spring mix with garden vegetables
Cherry whipped cream cake

Apple-walnut pancakes
Sausage patties
Home fries
Raisin danishes
Fruit salad

Ham and salami sandwiches
on Rauch’s marble rye
Maui onion and barbecue potato chips
Chocolate chip cookies
Oatmeal-raisin granola bars
Bottled water

Pulled pork
Macaroni & cheese
Baked beans with sausage
Sauteed corn with green chilies
Tossed Caprese salad
Banana pudding

  1. Mr. Pitcher:

    I am a nephrologist. I am giving a very brief lecture on salt and would like to use your salt shaker (spilled mountain of salt to the right of the salt shaker) picture.

    The slide in my Powerpoint presentation would show the photo and have a credit line:

    Is that possible? Namely, do I have your permission?
