Actually, I've not been cooking a great deal this month, but that's OK.
I had some great volunteers take over for me while I was gone and they produced two great lunches.
I did have a small part in one of them, I made up my Shepherd's Pie mix for them, and they finished it off for one of the lunches.
Agurk Salat. I just make a variation of them when we get a lot of fresh cucumbers.
And then there was dessert.
Gotta have dessert.
And then made a really delicious Chicken and Rice for another lunch. Actually I was told it was really delicious. I didn't get a chance to taste it, because I was out of town.
They also served cornbread and carrot salad alongside.
Last week I was back in the kitchen, and I got to get my hands into the food again.
I had found some great thick cut pork chops and I browned them briefly, to get a nice color on them, then I finished them off in the oven til they were just done and still moist and tender inside.
Haluski to serve alongside, along with some Okra and Tomatoes. I also whipped up a batch of chunky applesauce along with some Biscuits. And can't forget the dessert. We also put together some Banana Pudding and some Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes.
Tomorrow we're having a Mexican Fiesta, cause Cinco de Mayo is coming up and I wanted to make some Chicken Fajitas again.
And I think I need to make some and tell you all about them here, but I'll wait for a couple of days.
I also want to say THANK YOU to Lisa, Jon and the other great volunteers who put the lunches out while I was gone.
