Calvary Lutheran in Rapid City is on Facebook here: Calvary’s Facebook Page  There’s a cool new video about our church on this page that you can find if you go back to where it was posted on February 8th. (I would embed it here if I wanted to pay more for my wordpress blog every month so I could add videos.)

Last week we served French Dip sandwiches, fries, Italian Pasta Salad and Valentine Red Velvet Cupcakes. Thanks to our confirmation kids and the adult volunteers who come to serve and help scrape and wash dishes every week. We couldn’t do it without you!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

MENU 12-7-16 and Recipes

As requested by a blog follower, I’m posting the recipe for the Salisbury Steak that we made last week.

This makes 100 steaks and we made the recipe 5 times for 500.

20 pounds ground beef (no more than 24% fat)

1 pound 8 oz bread crumbs

6 large eggs

2 cups water

2 cups beef stock

1 cup non-instant, non-fat dry milk

1 cup dehydrated onions

1/2 cup parsley flakes

1 Tbsp black pepper

Mix ingredients well, preferably by hand instead of in a mixer so you won’t overmix it.  Portion steaks onto un-greased sheet pans covered in foil, using a 1/3 cup scoop. Flatten into oval patties.  Bake until browned in convection oven at 300 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Transfer to steamtable pas and keep warm.  Serve with mushroom gravy and egg noodles (40 pounds dry noodles, cooked as directed).

Mushroom Gravy: This makes 44 quarts of gravy; 470 servings, 3 oz each

2 packages brown gravy mix (sysco brand)

9 #3 cans cream of mushroom soup (46 oz)

14 #3 cans beef broth

4 #10 cans sliced mushrooms

For dessert we made Angel Food Cake Rolls filled with Strawberry Yogurt Filling

Angel Food Cake Roll

Makes 1 roll: cut into 14 slices and top with strawberry

For 672 servings, make cake 48 times

 

1 16 oz pkg angel food cake mix  (48)

5 tsp powdered sugar  (about 3 cups)

1 ½ oz instant vanilla pudding mix  (72 oz)

8 oz strawberry yogurt

Red food coloring

8 oz whipped topping  (24 16 oz containers)

 

Mix cake mix as directed on box. Line bottom of half size sheet pan with parchment and spread batter evenly into pan.  Bake at 325* for 20 minutes.

Cool cake 5 minutes, then run a knife around edges to loosen. Turn cake onto powdered sugar dusted parchment paper or kitchen towel. Peel off the parchment paper.  Roll up the cake in the towel starting with the short side. Let cool completely.

Whisk together the yogurt, pudding mix and food coloring (to desired color).  Fold in whipped topping.

Unroll cake; spread filling evenly over cake and roll up.

Dust with powdered sugar, cover, and freeze.  Remove from freezer 30 minutes before slicing with a serrated knife.

Chicken Fried Steak Dinner 11-9-16

After this crazy election season, we all could use a little comfort food.  Come on down to Calvary Lutheran Church on Wednesday, post-election day, for a little TLC.  Stay for worship at 6:30 after dinner if you’d like.  The music is always exceptionally good, sometimes the puppets come out, and the message of God’s love and grace is there for all.  We are the family of God, and as Nora Ephron once said, “A family is a group of people who eat the same thing for dinner.”  All are welcome at our table.img_2167

Last week we served dinner to over 400 with a baked potato bar, including chili, steamed broccoli, ham, bacon, cheese sauce, homemade cornbread muffins, and a decadent chocolate caramel cake for dessert. Here are a few photos from last week:
