Beth and Mary are rolling crusts and filling them. In the background is the groom's mom who arranged the use of the kitchen. They sell specialty organic items from their farm and orchard and also home-churned ice cream at local festivals. If you've been to the Asheville NC apple festival you may have had some of their wares...or currently at Georgia Mountain...they sell under "Old Ken Cole" and work very hard at what they do.
Beth is taking the new batch off the pans from the oven while Wendy and Tam prepare to put new ones in. We froze them, and warmed them on Saturday before the wedding. Tam's long suffering husband was the one in charge of warming and bringing them back to the wedding site in insulated containers. He also made a wonderful bourbon mushroom gravy for them---much fancier than the usual gravy I've had on them in the U.P of Michigan. They are usually served either plain, with gravy or ketchup.
I must admit, I kept on thinking of Emerson, Lake and Palmer's "Benny the Bouncer"....I am afraid that most of the people here didn't get my reference...lets see if you can figure it out. While we prepared for 250 people (even making 6 vegetarian versions), we only served about 100. LOTS were left over and sadly...I didn't bring any back to Ohio with me.
Do you wonder why I'm still tired yet?
Oh yeah..I saved all the beard and hair nets so I could quilt with them....never miss an opportunity to gather unusual materials.
