Without our volunteers, none of what we do here on Wednesday nights would be possible.  We are so grateful for these happy people, and the many more who aren’t pictured here, who give so willingly of their time and energy in the kitchen.

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.

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.
