The food is almost done. I’ve just got to make the fruit salad and cook the bread and butter pudding and risotto, both of which are prepared.
The menu is….
Spiced lamb casserole
Chicken with tomato and pesto sauce
Green pea risotto
Green salad (which someone else is bringing)
Raspberry bread and butter pudding
Fruit salad; pineapple, strawberries and passion fruit
I looked at it. I asked myself ‘Is there enough food?’ I answered ‘Yes, you fool, there is at least twice as much as we need.’
A consoling thought struck me. It is entirely appropriate, for a Harvest Festival supper at the church rooms, that there should be way too much food. Jesus overcatered, after all – when he fed the five thousand with five loaves and two fishes, they gathered up the leftovers in basketfuls.
