Senior's Lunch

I've mentioned before that I volunteer in the kitchen at the local seniors center to help cook lunch once a week.   And it's fun.   I get to meet more of the locals, feel as if I am helping out with one of my skills, and just plain makes me feel good.   And I learn so much from my fellow cooks.
I thought you might like to see what we've come up with the past couple of weeks for lunch.   And I have to say, our lunches are good.    They're taste approved by myself, as well as my fellow cooks.   In other words, we'd eat the food we prepare, in fact we do.  
Last week we served Tilapia, fried and baked.   As well as some French Fries, Coleslaw, Corn Chowder with Potatoes (vegetarian), Baked Beans and Hush Puppies.

Here's the signboard with the menu.

This week we made some chicken, marinated it and then grilled it off.

We also served Lima Beans, slow cooked with a nice big ol' Ham Bone,

Cornbread and hot fresh Biscuits were also served.   And I can't forget the dessert.   For some people that's the best part.

We do eat good here, but I think the best part is the volunteers.   They make it possible.   I'd personally like to adopt a couple of them, since they do such a great job of serving the food, and cleaning up.   This really is a joint effort.
