Oriental Chicken Salad, Orange Bow-tie Pasta Salad and Dessert Bar

CBS Leadership Luncheon

Each year I get the pleasure of preparing the final luncheon for our CBS Leaders Council. There are about 30 women in the Council. It is a joyful labor of love. I love to cook and I really LOVE these women of God.


CBS Leadership Luncheon Menu 2014

Homemade Pretzel Rolls

Dessert Bar

Chocolate Brownie Bar Bites

Mini Lemon Bundt Cakes

Reece Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Bites

Chubby Hubby Peanut Butter Pretzel Balls

Thin Mint Truffles


Let's start with dessert FIRST!!!

The dessert bar included Thin Mint Truffles, Mini Lemon Bundt's, Chocolate Marshmallow brownie bars, Reece Peanut Butter Cup Fudge, and Chubby Hubby Peanut Butter Pretzel balls. Everyone loved these small "bite size" treats.

Below you will see the first salad , Orange Bow tie Pasta Salad with grilled chicken. This salad was new to me. It combines a pasta salad with salad greens. The dressing is an orange cream sauce. Everyone loved it!!




Oriental Chicken Salad was probably the favorite. Salad greens, grilled chicken, mandarin oranges, chinese chow mein noodles, green onion, cilantro and a homemade sesame oil dressing pulled it all together.

Pretzel rolls completed the luncheon. YUM!!

A full banquet table. We are so blessed!!!

Today we ended our year long study on "Servants of God" in which we studied Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1st and 2nd Samuel. What a rich study of God's word. I always learn so much during the year. Community Bible Study is an international organization with studies all over the world. Check and see if there is a group in your area. It has made such a difference in my life. I would encourage you join next year and see how God can use you through studying His word.


Liz Rice is our ATD...Assistant Teaching Director. She is on my right. Tami Roach, on my left is our Teaching Director. These women are two of the finest SERVANTS OF GOD that I know in my life!!

Happy Trails,

Mtn Mama
