Party fare

What makes good party fare?

Well, stuffed eggs, according five-star party giver Martha Ann Evans.

Yep, plain old stuffed eggs.

"I serve them any time of the year, day or night for any occasion," said Evans. (She is not alone. We find them more and more at local fetes.)

The dish was among Southern-themed items on the table when Evans and her sisters hosted a 99th birthday party Jan. 7 for their mother, Martha Moore. The sisters are Mary Moore du Passage of Covington and June Frances of Dallas.

The stuffed eggs — which had completely disappeared at the end of the evening — were catered by Monjunis, as was the fab chunky guacamole and ham/biscuit sandwiches.

Bella Fresca supplied the shrimp with an unforgettable remoulade sauce. Vicki Potts supplied more Southern goodies: to-die-for divinity, pralines and chicken salad and cucumber sandwiches.

Among the guests: Katherine Tyrrell, Marion Ramsel, Mary McCord and former Shreveporters the Rev. Jane Alexander, over from Mississippi, and Bill McLeroy of Henderson, Texas. Bella Fresca owner John Cariere was working the crowd.
