So, what do I do when I am not traveling or teaching? Ron and I run a charity Bingo game on Tuesday nights at our mobile home park. The Bingo makes money for Guide Dogs of America. Besides our weekly Bingo, twice a year, we put on a Special Bingo Party. We just had out Summer Bingo. We not only have the Bingo games, but we cook lunch and dessert for 110 people. We think about the menu for six months! What will be great to eat and possible to cook. This year, we had Drip Beef Sandwiches (Pioneer Woman recipe) along with potato salad and grapes. Our team of six people prepped all of the food and Ron cooked 10 chuck roasts (5 hours each) all week. The sandwiches were great.
The desserts were from an Ina Garten recipe, Chocolate Mocha Ice Box Cakes, made into individual servings. They looked good and tasted even better… small, but rich. The whole day went very well and everyone had a good time as wel helped a very good cause.
