I forgot to put out the yahtzee game and card games, they were in a bag on another table and I didn’t realize they weren’t there until now…

We played Euchre, checkers and rummy o (another game, and dominoes are not shown in the photo either!)

I played Euchre last time, so I hope I can play rummy – o next time, it’s another favorite game, but it only has 4 players..

sorry for the blurry picture!

This is the banana bread (five loaves) on this pretty blue tray

and we didn’t use the blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing, they used only 1 tub of ranch dip

I’m learning that I don’t need as much food as I thought I would need. 😉

Harry begins by greeting some of the volunteers and chatting about how we’d like to add new foods and things to the next event which will be on Friday March 3, 2017 from 6 30 pm to 9 30 pm

Harry’s Mug was a success! We all had so much fun that many of the people asked to have it extended from 2 to 3 hours, so it’s going to change from 7 to 9 pm to 630 to 930 pm.

Also they didn’t want it every 1st and 3rd Friday, they want it every other week!

So I’ve scheduled it to be on the opposite weeks of Ugly Mug in St Catharines, so we can still attend that one when we have time…

I found a different kind of spinach dip to try this time and it’s good but not my favorite.  I still love Larry & Nancy’s homemade spinach dip that they serve at Ugly Mug every other Friday in St Catharines Ontario Canada.

We actually never got around to using these sugar donuts so they went into the freezer and we’ll use them on Friday March 3, 2017 when we get together again!

I really like this serving dish, it’s in my favorite robin egg green blue color and it makes a nice photo.  I think I should have taken the lid off but I was in a hurry to take the photos in the kitchen before the food was served …

We had leftovers, which was donated to four needy families thanks to Bill!

It’s a cosy and easy way to serve yourself a coffee, we put the flasks out on a shelf and you serve yourself, coffee, tea, milk, cream and sugar is provided for free, take as many cups as you want!

Harry’s Mug Friday February 17th 2017 – Photos of Food, Linda and Harold Chisholm

Harry’s in the background chatting with the volunteers Alan, Georgia, Nancy and Judy.

We all sat down at 6 pm and talked about how we were going to organize the kitchen and games.

We already had a plan on how to do it, it was fun implementing it for the FIRST night!

Things ran pretty smoothly except Harry forgot to put the food out until 740 pm

he was busy making coffee, tea and sorting the kitchen snacks out.

They moved food from one container into a big serving dish and that took some time.

It was nicely arranged with the dip in the middle (ranch dip)

Which you will see soon in another picture.

I’m taking a selfie to show our first night.

I’m not going to be taking photos of people as they attend the event.

I will only take photos of the food we serve before the people come in…
