The January Dinner of the Dumbwaiter Supper Club

January 23, 2011

After a hiatus over the holidays, we were all excited to get back together for another Dumbwaiter Supper Club dinner. Here were this month’s clues:

Clue #1: The Green Mile?! What does that mean???


Luke 22:7-23

Clue #2: Hmmm, okay. It’s starting to come together ….


Clue #3: GOT IT!


If you didn’t guess it yet, the theme was your interpretation of a last supper. Jason and I took it two different ways. I went with “Death by Chocolate” by combing two of my favorite things: bacon and fudge. It sounds crazy, but trust me, the savory and sweet was fantastic:

Jason’s interpretation was one of his favorite dishes: buffalo chicken dip with a ton of Frank’s Red Hot. It was very spicy … and delicious!


The winning dish this month was Cait’s take on tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich. She made mini Parmesan cups, and filled them with tomato soup thickened with cream cheese. Each little bite was like a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup all in one – the ultimate mini comfort food!


And here are the rest of the dishes. We started out as pretty good cooks (if I do say so myself) but every month we do this the bar gets set higher! Every dish was amazing, and we all left too full to move.

Jon’s Dish: Poutine


Matt’s dish: Breakfast Casserole


Julia’s dish: Fresh pasta and homemade red sauce with homemade meatballs and sausage


WOW. I can’t believe we ate all that … and then ate again today! Since Cait’s dish won she’ll be hosting our dinner next month. We’re already looking forward to her clues!
