Adamstown Inns & Cottages Christmas Dinner

Tis the Season for Christmas parties! Sunday, December. 20th, was the big Christmas Dinner for the staff at the Adamstown Inns & Cottages. It was a highly anticipated dinner, due to the mouthwatering baby back ribs Wanda would be cooking.

I headed out Thursday afternoon to gather all the food and supplies we would need to make a memorable Christmas get together. After I loaded all 40lbs of meat into my cart, I decided that I had better call Wanda, just to make sure this wasn’t too much meat. As I heard Tom yell in the background, #%&* what 40lbs, I think it was safe to say we had too much meat, so we decided on 30lbs

Supplies gathered, home I went to prepare for a day of cooking. Bright and early Friday morning I awoke and headed off to work to start my cooking for the coming weekend. First I had to make a trip out to collect all the stuff I had forgotten on Thursday- even with a list I still can’t remember things. Liz and I cooked all day on Friday. We made a scrumptious sweet potato casserole, delectable spinach & asparagus risotto, and some homemade coleslaw to accompany the ribs. We also prepared some lemon cream stuffed grapes & parmesan twist for appetizers. Liz decided she does not like making the parmesan twist, I don’t blame her, they were hard to make.


So food was made, all we needed to do was show up Sunday afternoon to eat. There was no way we were going to let a little bit of snow keep us from enjoying good food. The 10” of snow gave us some concern on Saturday, as we all sat around thinking…what are we going to do with all this food? Nevertheless, we all braved the snowy roads to devour sweet smelling ribs. We ate and ate, until everyone was full. I was pretty sure -I would not have to eat for days. Everyone talked and we played a few Christmas word games. We had a lovely Christmas Dinner.

Now I’m sure you would love to know just how much we actually ate. Out of the 5 crock pots filled with ribs, we ate 2…. we will be eating ribs for the next week for lunch and dinner.
