But it's a good tired. It's a long day of cooking, but so worth it.
I like being able to feed a lot of people, a good balanced meal, especially one that they clean their plates over.
Clean plates means that the food was tasty. And when someone stops by to tell me that they appreciated the meal, that's just icing on the cake.
Our menu yesterday was:
Roasted Potatoes with Onions and Peppers
Rolls and Desserts
I started off by baking two chocolate cakes, then made some Custard Sauce to go over them, I also made a carrot cake and Sarge made a large Bread Pudding.
There wasn't a scrap of dessert left.
OK, so there was one piece of carrot cake left, but it was the one that I totally messed up cutting.
Here's a few pictures of the food.
That's it for this week, I've got to go and rest now.
Well, I did rest yesterday afternoon when it was all over with.
Until the next time...
Actually, next week we're doing a reprise of the New Years menu, with the addition of a different meat.
Black Eye peas
And I forgot to add a HUGE THANK YOU to all the volunteers who not only did the dishes, but helped set up the tables, and gave us a hand in the kitchen.
We could not do it without all of you.
