OK, some of you have been asking so I'll tell you our rotation. What has worked and what hasn't:
This is not a complete list of the ones that work, but it's long enough for now. Next time I'll complete the "what worked" list and start the "what didn't" list. Remember, if you're cooking you're happy!
- Italian with Red Sauce - we intentionally leave it open ended like that so we have the flexibility to improv according to sale items.This one works every time, and I still refuse to serve spaghetti! We serve baked
garlic bread sticks and a garden salad with this one.
- Taco Night - Another killer! We set out a full fledged taco bar with all the fixings. Along with the obvious, we serve re-fried beans, cheese sauce and nachos, and for amusement, we serve tater tots sprinkled with
taco seasoning (south of the border fries)!
- Ham and Scalloped Potatoes - This is an old favorite, get's the older population out of their houses and up to church on a Wednesday evening! Served with a vegetable of some sort, dinner rolls, and a garden salad.
- Breakfast - By far the most popular! Scrambled eggs, hash browns, pancakes/french toast, sausage gravy and biscuits. We even cut up some french toast into sticks for the kids. Here's one you'll have to try, we make
rice crispy bars using different types of cereal; fruit loops, etc. Those never make it to the end of the night.
- Soup and Salad - This is a fun one because we have people donate crock pots of soup. Of course, we make big batches as well, but people love to try different types. For salads, we still do a garden, but also pasta
salads, jello salads, let your imagination go!!
- Sub and Salads - Same type of salads as previously mentioned, but they build their own subs! We'll serve chips or fries with this one to to mix it up a bit.
