Easter

Our Easter meal was colorful and delicious! From purple, pink, and green hard-boiled eggs to ham and homemade fruit roll-ups, we had it all. Our menu consisted of: turkey, ham, yams, sautéed spinach and tomatoes, smashed potatoes, anti-pasta salad, and roasted pepper asparagus pasta salad. Our fruit roll-ups were created by Chef Dara and had blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries in them. We thank the staff, volunteers, and donors for making this Easter so wonderful at the Mission.

 

 

The first week of April we decided to switch some things up; we had breakfast for dinner! Chef Dara made blueberry lemon zest pancakes for dinner. The blueberry lemon zest syrup was homemade and simple to make. My personal favorite were the stuffed peppers with ground beef served with fingerling potatoes, roasted tomato squash and leek salad, and prosciutto.

March 2017

An outstanding meal we created this week was a Braised Pork Belly with Creamy Polenta. We also served Roasted Brussel Sprouts and a Roasted Beet Salad and Feta Cheese with the meal. Our chefs also prepared Shepherd’s Pie, Pumpkin Turkey Chili, Baked Chicken with a Brown Sugar Glaze, and a personal favorite, Chili Mac and Cheese!

   

A favorite this week is an all-time classic: cheeseburgers! One of our chefs’s created beautifully crafted burgers topped with cheese, diced tomatoes, lettuce, and fried onions. Accompanied with it were steak fries and pepper poppers! Chef Dara brought out her inner baker and made nine different cakes topped with cherry and caramel sauce. We also had a Fiesta Turkey Mac and Cheese! Thanks for all the donations and please continue to keep us in your prayers.

   


One of the delicious meals we created this week was a Reuben Sandwich accompanied with a creamy, cheese pasta and mozzarella sticks! We like to get creative with desserts, and thanks to Cathedral Kitchen and the Convention Center for their donations, Chef Dara and Shelby were able to create chocolate mousse pies with crushed chocolate chip cookies and whipped cream. Chef Carmen made a crowd favorite: Buffalo Chicken Baked Ziti and Brown Sugar Spiced Baked Chicken. God is continually blessing us with donations and we thank Him each week for all that He is doing in the kitchen and at the Mission!
