Don’t miss the Oasis quartet here Sunday

Check out all the activities of this busy weekend but be sure to take time out to go see the Oasis Quartet at 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon at Peace Lutheran Church fellowship hall. This group of talented ladies from the Houston area are current Region 10 Quartet Champions and will be competing in Sweet Adelines International competition next month.

The program is presented by our local Matinee Musical Club and you can still get tickets from any club member or at the door Sunday afternoon.

Proceeds go to the music club’s Louise Hale Sessions Memorial Scholarship, awarded each spring to a deserving RHS senior who plans to continue his or her music after graduation.

This definition of grandparents by an eight-year-old:

Grandparents don’t have to do anything except be there when we come to see them. They are so old they shouldn’t play hard or run.

You might have seen the grandfather around here actually running down the street several times Saturday morning with youngest grandson Augie who was making his maiden voyage on his new bicycle— without training wheels.

PawPaw’s two replaced knees were moving on down the road and Augie did get the hang of riding his bike. This grandpa might be old, but he apparently can still run and play if the need, in the form of a grandkid, arises.

It got very quiet at the Thursday Reading Club luncheon when this dessert by Dorothy Bergeron was served—except for a chorus of yummms and oooohs and aaaahs. Try it if you are in the mood for something different.

French Pastry
1 box vanilla wafers, crushed
2 (10 oz.) boxes sliced frozen
strawberries
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup butter (no substitute)
1 box 10x powdered sugar
4 well-beaten eggs







In a double boiler, cook butter, sugar and eggs to a mayonnaise like consistency (it won’t be very thick). Stir constantly to prevent scorching.

Put 2/3’s of the crushed wafers in a 13x9x2-inch dish. Pour custard sauce over the wafers. Sprinkle with half the pecans.

Whip cream and use 1/2 for the next layer. Spread berries on top. Finish with other layers of cream, pecans and crushed wafers in that order. Freeze.

Remove from freezer about 20 minutes before serving. Cut into squares. Serve to your delighted guests. Listen to the yumms, oooohs and aaaahs. peggy@rockdalereporter.com
