Breaded Pork Chops and Meatloaf for Senior Lunches

I'm tired this morning, but it's a good tired.  I made lunch yesterday for the Senior Center, as I do every Thursday.   
It's one of those volunteer positions where you really feel like you're accomplishing something. 
In my case, I love to feed people, lots of people and I love to cook. 
I've been the Kitchen Manager since the beginning of the year, and have been cooking every week since, with the exception of two weeks in April.
I can't tell you how much I missed it, the bustle, the hurry up and get the lunch ready by noon, making sure every item of the lunch is ready on time.
And I appreciate the other volunteers who help me out in the kitchen, from prep to desserts to that all important task of washing the dishes. 
I tend to dirty some pots when I'm cooking. 
Goes with the territory.
One of my volunteers was helping out her parents the past couple of weeks so she wasn't able to help me out, and I found out just how much she helped.  I'm going to appreciate her even more now.

Last week we had Breaded Pork Chops, Apple Sauce, Rice Pilaf, Beans and Carrots for the meal.  I also made some Banana Bread and Bread Pudding for dessert. 
 This week was Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes and Squash Medley.  I also made some Ice Cream Pies, as well as a Jello Poke Cake.  Which I didn't get any pictures of.
Just wanted to catch you up on my cooking endeavors.  

Coming up next week, we're doing a full blown Turkey Dinner, with the works, Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Sweet Potato Casserole and Pumpkin Pie for dessert.

I need to go rest up now...
