Comforting Casseroles And A Generous Gift

We had a full dining room and a long line to get in during most of our two hour service today. In the end, we served 405 meals.

Every so often it's freezer and refrigerator cleaning time at the Wednesday Community Meal and we just pull things out and get creative.

Today was one of those days so we devised Mexican inspired casseroles made of rice, ground beef, chicken, onions, celery, spices and cheese.

Sometimes I worry that the guests will be disappointed when we utilize leftovers but that's never been the case. Casseroles are always a big hit and I think it's because they are so flavorful, homey and comforting.

Alongside the casseroles we served roasted vegetables, soup, salad and dessert.

We served 405 meals today and we also received a surprise and generous $25 donation from one of our guests who said she just wanted to give back because we do so much for her. So nice!
