Senior Lunches for April

This has been a busy month for me.  I was on a business trip, then I ended up eating out a lot this month, and it feels like I've not been cooking a lot either.

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.
They served the Shepherd's Pie or Cottage Pie for the purists here along with a squash casserole and some quick pickles.   Actually in Danish they're called 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.
I made some 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.
