Lorna invited me and Polly to the 2016 Success Richmond Women Club Christmas dinner at the Continental Seafood Restaurant in early December as most restaurants are fully booked for Christmas dinner nearer towards Christmas day.
As usual, it is also an appreciation night for committee members who had served for 6 years and also members who had joined for 10 and 20 years. It is also a night to present the ledger and introduce the new committee members for the following year.
The table setting includes a small table gift for everyone to bring home. No one is going home empty handed.
Various sauces for different dishes. For example, plum sauce for BBQ duck, vinegar for soup, green onion and ginger sauce for steamed chicken, etc.
First course always start with a platter of BBQ duck, Mushroom Bean Curd Wrap (cold), BBQ Pork, Marinated Spiced Beef Tendon and Seaweed Salad.
The next dish is Stir Fried Squid and Chicken with Celery.
Egg Swirl and Fresh Mushroom soup.
Shrimp and Broccoli.
Mushroom sauce on baby bok choy.
Fish Fillet served in 2 styles on a bed of crunchy green peas.
A break in the dinner for performance like karaoke and traditional dance. On top of that, there were games and lucky draw.
The dinner ended with some carbo like Stir Fried E-Fu Noodle.
Stir Fried Sticky Rice.
Lastly, a sweet soup made with a variety of beans.
To burn off the meal, a lesson of line dance for those who are interested.
Praise dance is this year’s new event. Thanks to Amy for leading the dance. She is the instructor of the praise dance at the Success Richmond Women Club who meet up every Friday morning.
Lorna, thank you for inviting us to a fun Christmas dinner.
