Next Wednesday is a big Christmas celebration at Calvary Lutheran Church. Dinner will be served from 4:45 to 6:15, followed by a worship service from 6:30 to 7:15 with a Children’s Christmas Program and Live Nativity. After worship, the pre-Confirmation, Confirmation and High School groups will be having their Christmas parties with cookie decorating.
Dinner will feature a Christmas Pig (and some roast pork loin) from grilling expert Tony Balay of Lone Star Smoke Rangers. The pig we’ll be smoking came from a local farm in Hermosa, and couldn’t be fresher (I’ll spare you the details)! To round out the menu, we’ll be serving Apples sauteed with butter, cinnamon and brown sugar; Scalloped Potatoes; Spinach Salad with Mandarin Oranges; and for dessert, Rice Pudding and Molasses Cookies.
In anticipation of Pig and Cookies, I encourage you to watch this video of Ormie the Pig who so desperately wants a cookie. We promise not to make it so hard for you to get a cookie on Wednesday night!
