Twice a year I get the pleasure of making lunch for our church’s new member and guest luncheon. It is typically a pretty busy weekend for me and my family…I grocery shop for a ton of food, pile everything in my kitchen (it feels like Christmas!!!), cook the night before and the morning of and haul everything over to the church! Then, our Pastor is there to greet us with a crew of volunteers ready to help unload and set up. Call me crazy, but this is actually SO MUCH FUN for me!
Here is a sneak peak into my weekend. I wish I would have gotten more photos, but I was bussssyyy!!!
(I had 60 people to cook for today- we have had up to 120)
|I made 2 of these huge salads. Lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, cucumbers, olives, and croutons.|
|I really like the containers at GFS…these are about $2 and have lids. I can also reuse them!|
|My son “getting in on the action” crushing Heath bars for “Better than a Hug Cake”|
|My semi-homemade dressing. I like to use Good Seasons All Natural with olive oil, red wine vinegar, and sugar to taste.
Line em up!
My husband cutting “Better than a hug Cake”– I am VERY blessed to have such a supportive husband. I thank God for him every day.
My son watching me make a simple lemonade punch
The lemonade takes on the color of the berries…pretty isn’t it? Very nice for Spring and Summer.
The kids area had PB and J, chips, carrots, silly cookies and juice boxes
Keep serving your families and others Ladies!
Thanks for letting me share my day with you.
Love to you, Janelle
