|The pretty green salads we offered today. I love being able to serve fresh produce to our guests.|
For the second Wednesday in a row, it was rainy and cold in Portland. Fortunately the dining room at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral was available for use and we were able to go back to serving the Wednesday Community Meal inside and the guests appreciated it and commented on how nice was to get warm.
When the weather is bad guests tend to come early and stay longer so the dining room was constantly busy.
We served 318 meals today during our two hour service and had to change our menu three times.
The first group of guests got oven roasted chicken, mashed potatoes and sauteed greens. Then it was onto pork roast and rice and finally sweet and sour chicken and shimp over rice.
|Meal number one - oven roasted chicken, mashed potatoes and sauteed greens.|
|Our third meal offering of the day - Sweet and sour chicken and shrimp over rice.|
We also offered soup, salad and dessert. Hot chocolate, coffee and tea were also popular.
