Quiche and Salad Luncheon set April 25 at St. Joseph

— Springtime brings flowers, new beginnings and tradition as the Muskogee Catholic Community hosts the annual Quiche and Salad Luncheon and Bake Sale.  

Thirty years ago this month the parish of Sacred Heart, with assistance from the women of the Assumption parish, hosted the first salad luncheon.  

Some things changed. Quiche was added to the menu and the two churches merged into St. Joseph parish.  However, what hasn’t changed is the quality and variety of the delicious food available.  The last Thursday in April is the day when parishioners take to the kitchen and serve close to 400 people in the Muskogee community.  Last year more than seventy people prepared about sixty quiche and more than one hundred salads.  It’s the luncheon many people inside and outside St. Joseph parish look forward to each spring.  

Sue McBride is serving as this year’s luncheon chairwoman.

“The tables will be decorated in spring pastel colors, with fresh cut flowers” McBride said.  “The food is awesome!  There’s a great variety of colorful salads and quiche.”   

Shirley Garde Miller, Altar Society President, is making her flavorful cashew chicken salad.  McBride looks forward to that salad each year.  She assures you will not go away hungry and will be surprised at the selection of salads.

The luncheon is buffet style.  Carry out is available and someone will be on hand to help if you have multiple carry out lunches.

 Middle school students from St. Joseph Catholic School will serve drinks and assist patrons. Longtime parishioner Vernon Antonioni will direct traffic and  help those who need assistance.  

The cost is $7 for quiche, salads and a drink.  Baked goods will be available for purchase.  Proceeds benefit the Church sacristy and needs of the parish.  Half of the bake sale proceeds will be donated to the Diocesan Council of Catholic Women.

Here are some recipes from St. Joseph church members.  It’s a sample of what may be available at the luncheon.
