There are three of us who are co-cooks. Well, we all cook and basically take turns cooking. Sarge is the senior cook here, and has been doing the lunches for a few years. Actually, Sarge has been cooking since the 50's and he's still going strong. He was an army cook, and then worked in the commercial field for many years being responsible for as much as 4000 meals at a time. I can't even begin to comprehend cooking for that many people. A hundred or so is doable but more than that, well, all I can say is, I'm so glad he knows how to figure out how much to make at any given point in time. As an example, today he made 15 pounds of turnip greens, and a case of yellow squash for the lunch. We cooked up Meatloaf, Pork Pot Pie, garlic toast, mashed potatoes and gravy and a green salad as well as cornbread. And that doesn't even count the desserts that a very generous bunch of ladies makes and brings. Or the totally awesome bread pudding Sarge makes. They all blow me away.
