The Chili Cook-Off was such a success, that we’re doing another cook-off. This time we’re trying something different. On May 5, immediately following worship we will have a Hotdish Cook-Off.
According to How to Talk Minnesotan by Howard Mohr: “A traditional main course, hotdish is cooked and served hot in a single baking dish and commonly appears at family reunions and church suppers.” In its history, hotdish traditionally contained frozen or canned vegetables, canned soup, a starch, and a protein. Still eaten frequently at Minnesota churches, it can stretch to feed many people. One of the most popular hotdishes in the churches I served there was “tater tot hotdish.”
Now it’s your turn! Create your own hotdish for us to share and vote on. Sign up sheets will be in the fellowship hall for those who plan to make and bring a hotdish and for those who are coming to eat and vote. The Transition Committee will provide salad, drinks, dessert, and bread.
