A most popular and fun-filled item from F.O.R.’s annual River Regatta fundraiser auction is the river-style Progressive Dinner
for six people
took place on Friday, July 6, 2012. Hosted this time by four couples who reside on the Brazoria side of the river.
Pete and Sue Smirch served an appetizer of assorted cheese and crackers, grapes, veggies, fresh baked bread and wine.
Traveling next to Fred and Nancy Kanter's home and assisted by Marie Breakiron, the soup and salad course was served consisting of chilled cucumber and shrimp soup, tabouli, rolled grape leaves, hummus, marinated fresh tomatoes, a falafel, and spicy crackers. Watermelon cocktails helped wash down the food.
Continuing on to Larry and Erma Vacek’s outdoor kitchen, the group enjoyed Erma’s preparation of the main entrée of tilapia with a garlic-infused Alfredo sauce over penne pasta and garlic bread.
The grand finale was scrumptious desserts served at the home of Judy and Lynn Gillespie. The list included Italian Cream Cake , warm Brownies , Chocolate-dipped Strawberries , Peach Cobbler a la Mode, Key Lime Tarts , Hazelnut iced coffee and ice water with lemon and mint.
