Start a tradition and cook a meal at RMH

This month's menu

Pasta with assorted sauces

Pinwheels

Kelly's Collards

Other vegetable (depends on what's available)

Salad

Bread

Cupcakes/Cookies/Fruit

Tea/Fruit Juice


We're getting better at this! We have a good stock of staples with a box permanently stored at the house.

Let's pool our resources, talent, time and good energy to start a tradition of sharing by creating and serving one meal (dinner or weekend breakfast) at regular intervals to the families in residence at the Ronald McDonald House in Gainesville. Wouldn't it be great to be able to put fresh, local food from our gardens on their plates now and then?

Some of us will need to be there at 2, others not until 5 for the final touches, clean-up and presentation. It's necessary to prepare everything in the House, or buy it already made.

Menu will be posted well in advance so we can gather what we need. If you have something ready to harvest in abundance, post and we'll incorporate it into the menu.

Open season on desserts - those of any type are always welcome. There is plenty of room to bake there and I think we can get in as early as 2.

This is really a fun, fine, feel-good frolic. (: Join us!

More details to follow.

    Ok, let's toss around some ideas - I'd like to use the 10# of linguini, so I'm thinking we could make a basic tomato sauce in two versions: one with and one without meat (I have a bag of beef fajita meat that we can use in it) and another sauce that is olive oil and garlic based with whatever vegetables we can get fresh. I'll probably stop at Cheney's today, 'cause I'm working in Ocala.

    I'll have kale, but not sure enough for a vegetable side, but we'll make pinwheels again and incorporate it into them. We have a single batch of Wacky Cake mix for cupcakes and about 50 ginger snaps for dessert, as well as a big can of apricots.

    I like our cabbage salads...inexpensive and easy, but we could also have a green salad (either from local gardens or just a 1# box of organic greens from Sam's)

    Kelly, will you make soup from that giant seminole pumpkin?

    We're pretty set for this week's ingredients. The only things we need are tortillas, bread, and salad makings. This is going to be a pretty simple meal with plenty of variety.
