Senior Center Lunch the past couple of weeks

I keep meaning to sit down and tell you all about the lunches we made the past couple of weeks.   But I've been busy with other stuff, and just haven't made the time to do this.

We've had a great couple of lunches, the week before last we had some Oven Fried Chicken, Potato Salad, Stewed Tomatoes and Okra, Yeast Rolls and Dessert.  Lisa made some Raspberry Jam Cupcakes as well as an Apple Cake which we topped off with some home made caramel sauce. 

I made a really great coating for the Oven Fried Chicken and I'll share the recipe with you all later on in the week.  But we had pans full of chicken, which we served.  It's fun making so much food at once, and then to watch it get eaten and enjoyed, well, that's even more fun.

Last week we used some of the peppers we had in the freezer and made some Stuffed Peppers alongside Squash Medley and home made biscuits.   Plus some Danish's I made for dessert alongside the Pineapple Icebox Pie Lisa made. 
 These are the Vegetarian Peppers, which are stuffed with a mixture of rice, mushrooms, squash and carrots.  We then topped them with some Creole Tomato Sauce.
 You gotta move fast when you're preparing food for a crowd.

Waiting to be topped with a little Creole style tomato sauce.

Russell made the filling for the peppers, and it tasted great.

And here's the finished plate.  The batteries in my camera died just as soon as I snapped this picture.
From the top, Pineapple Icebox Pie, Danishes, two ways,  and for the meal, the Stuffed Peppers, Squash Medley, and 7 up Biscuits
