Dining With Denise Neil

St. Paul's annual chicken noodle dinner is on Saturday

A man and his Miracle Whip. Cliff Simmons is the man who does almost all the shopping, organizing and marketing for the annual chicken noodle dinner. I thought he was pretty great.Doesn’t a bowl of hot chicken and noodles sound good right now? Brrrrrrrrr.

Saturday is the day for is the 68th annual St. Paul's United Methodist Church chicken and noodles dinner, which usually gets about 2,000 attendees. They sit down at tables and feast on family-style servings of  homemade chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes and coleslaw. It’s an all-you-can-eat kind of thing.

I sat down with the organizers earlier this week, who are getting sort of worn out. I wouldn’t have the energy to do all they do, and I’m 40 years younger.

They hinted this could be the last year for the dinner, but apparently, they feel that way every year.

Either way, it might be a good idea to go on Saturday. Admission is $1o. Get all the details in my story.
