Schedule for Wednesday meals for the rest of 2016:
No meal next week, November 23rd. Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends.
December 7th and 14th we’ll be cooking for you, then there will be a break for Christmas until January 11th.
A few blog followers who run their own church suppers have asked for information about the chicken fried steak and chicken strips we serve. We stack them vertically in steamtable pans and bake in the convection oven. The chicken fried steak was served with white pepper gravy made from a dry mix, also from Sysco. Here are the labels:
Yesterday we made a double batch (600 cookies) of Double Chocolate Cookies, 10 pans of Rice Krispie Treats and lots of red and orange jello.
Double Chocolate Cookies
25 dozen (300) cookies using #40 purple disher
16 ½ cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 2/3 cup cocoa powder
½ cup vanilla
8 cups sugar
8 cups brown sugar
1 cup milk
48 oz chocolate chips
Whisk together flour, baking soda and cocoa. Cream butter and sugars until fluffy in large mixer. Beat in eggs. At low speed beat in vanilla and milk. Mix in the flour just until well blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Use #40 disher, scoop up and level cookie dough, dropping onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350* convection. Remove from oven and cool slightly before removing from cookie sheets.
Here’s the original recipe that was adapted to make the big batch above:
Good luck with your Thanksgiving turkey, and have a blessed holiday.
Every week our menus are created to appeal to a wide variety of needs and tastes. For the last few years we have offered a salad bar with every meal and last year we added gluten-free main dish and dessert options. Karla made this week’s menu with the kids in mind, and for the kid hiding inside every grown-up who secretly yearns for mac and cheese and jello every once in awhile.
Dinner is served from 4:45-6:15pm. All are welcome!
