Social Event Barbeque

Last Saturday night we were invited to a social event hosted by a service club in a community about 40 minutes from us. I've mentioned before on this blog how much I enjoy going to local food events. They are always filled with good food, lots of laughter and tend to be overall just a very lovely way to spend and evening.

Taygur Barbecue on Wheels

Saturday's dinner was a barbequed rib and chicken dinner catered by Taygur Barbecue on Wheels for the social event. I couldn't find a website for them which is a pity because their food is really good! The ribs were nice and meaty with lots of flavour as was the chicken. The ribs and chicken were served with baked potatoes, baked beans, a vegetable mix as well as the usual rolls. The vegetable mix included parsnips a vegetable that is not widely served unless requested. Parsnips look like carrots but are usually a creamy, yellowish white and they have a stronger flavour. Now parsnips by them selves may be too strong from some tastes but they add a lot of flavour to soups and stews. Parsnips are also quite lovely roasted served they way they were. The baked beans were quite tasty, rich and robust with larger pieces of onion and tomato. They also had a lovely fruit tray, something that is not always served at these types of events. Overall this was really a nicely presented meal that packed a lot of flavour. We will certainly be watching for their name to come up again when determining which events to go to.

For the most part these types of events cost $8 to $12 per plate. There is usually some type of social either structured or unstructured takes place after the meal. They are usually dinners but some service clubs host breakfasts and luncheons as well. On our list to attend events to attend for February are a pickerel fish fry, a roast beef dinner and possibly a Chinese dinner. To find these kinds of events, check the community section of your local newspaper.
