Today’s annual dinner auction at Sacandaga Bible Conference is a big deal. It’s the day I get to spend some money.

Our generous guests spend about $30 a head to attend — more than double our typical dinner cost — and we aim to give them a meal that compares.

So we’re rolling out some premium ingredients, including cornish game hens and more than 100 pounds of local, Amish-grown produce, including raspberries. I thought you’d like to see the menu:

Smoked gouda macaroni and cheese bites

Fried ravioli with homemade marinara sauce
