Senior's Lunch for the past two weeks

I think I've said this before, but this month seems to have been extremely busy, so I've not posted as much as I think I should.     I've still been doing my stint at the Senior Center, cooking my little heart out.    I do enjoy cooking, obviously.   I also get to try making recipes I would never try at home, and I learn, every single time I go there, I learn something new.    My fellow cooks are fantastic, and have years of experience and I'm shameless in asking questions of them.   We each have strengths that tend to complement each other as well.   I may not have cooked in a commercial environment, but I've done my share of cooking for large groups of people.  
 I thought I would give you a little glimpse of the dishes as we're preparing the food.   
Biscuits ready for the oven.

Cornbread ready for the oven

Creamed Corn at the back and some custard cooking in front

Cabbage cooking down for the Cabbage and Kielbasa boil

Prepping Mac and Cheese
And since it was Easter, one of our volunteers brought an Easter Cake.
Then there was last week.
We had Hamburger Steak over rice
And some Spaghetti and Meat Sauce

Carrot Salad
Green Beans
Green Salad
And I neglected to get pictures of the dessert table, but then again, I'm usually pretty busy getting the food ready to serve at noon.    This past week we fed almost 100 people, which is a pretty decent turnout.

Sid loves to cook, feed people and have fun in the kitchen. She shares her successes and the involuntary offerings she sometimes gives the kitchen goddess as well. And she's still looking for the mythical fairy to help her clean the kitchen after a marathon cooking session. Currently working on a cookbook showcasing the recipes from her Danish heritage.
