Cabin Fever Dinner 2024
(date to be determined)

The 19th [?] Nearly Annual CABIN FEVER Dinner, Redux

will be another opportunity to share good food, good company, and some great stories. Come prepared to tell one yourself, or just sit back and enjoy everyone else’s! The dinner is served upstairs in the sanctuary of the church (and if the stairs look daunting, there is an elevator). Here is the word on this year’s dinner:

We’ve all missed this fun night of local stories and great food. Now, after three years of pandemic isolation the Church wants to bring it back–well, sort of, maybe different, maybe better–maybe not better.

Here’s the thing: Tristan Toleno, our wonderful chef of past Cabin Fever Suppers, is unable to continue the tradition for a number of reasons, though he continues to represent us well in Montpelier.

So, what do we do? Here is the redux part. We have decided to continue it as a pot luck!

Church members will provide beverages and butter, and will continue Tristan’s tradition of serving mac and cheese, using his recipe. We hope that you, our faithful friends, will bring a salad, a side dish, or a dessert. There will not be an admission charge, but we will accept donations, and wine will also be available by donation. We hope the stories will flow as they have before, and we are looking forward to hearing Tom Griffith’s barred owl howl.

Please come even if you are unable to bring something for the pot luck table.
Seating is limited, so come early to make sure you get a seat.

Here’s the menu from 2020 Dinner of happy memory:

  • Green Salad with Apples and Maple-glazed Pecans (V+GF)
  • Red Hen and Orchard Hill Bread
  • Garlic and Rosemary Chicken (GF) with Kale-and-Beet Salad (V+GF)
  • Vermont Cheddar mac-and-cheese (V)
  • Bake Sweet Potato with Pear and Onion (V+GF)
  • Roasted Squash, Carrots, and Parsnips (V+GF)
  • Frozen Maple Mousse with Ginger-Caramel Sauce (GF)
  • Chocolate Mousse (GF)
  • Some dairy-free desserts also available

And we’re counting on you to help make the 2023 menu just as good!

The Cabin Fever Dinner and the West West Community Fair are our two big fundraisers for the year. You get to have fun, eat good food, and help support the life and the work of the congregation–all at the same time!
