sorority ministry for young women as part of the Assemblies of God called Chi Alpha. I have enjoyed getting to know some of these girls who attend the University of Missouri, Stephens College and Columbia College - all here in Columbia, Missouri.
The menu was 2 types of scones: plain with raisin and pumpkin date scones. Hot black tea was served in teapots by the hostesses.
The meal began with a nice fall salad with mixed greens and a few of each of these: sliced green grapes, mini English cucumbers, red onion, peas, craisins, mushrooms, shredded cheese, chopped apples and crispy onion rings.
The savories were: Finger sandwiches of Smoked Turkey with an orange marmalade and cranberry spread with a little lettuce, Cheese Spinach Mini Quiches and Pimento Cheese Pinwheels.
