What she wished she said, "that's ok. I totally understand."
What she really said, no you really don't want to know my initial words. God has a way of working things out. I am in Federal Way, WA as I write this post and Dave is home. Quite a change from the previous posts.
Flashback: Dave and I have been making food together for small groups and large groups for all our married life and before. Still to this day, out favorite group of people to cook for is our family. When we aren't cooking for our family our second favorite group of people to cook for is groups of people whom we can serve, like the choir from CVCS.
This is the 5th year we've helped and the 4th year that we've made lunch and dinner for the choir. Even though Dave isn't here, he helped with the massive shopping day and the meal prep before we left.
Here's this year's menu with a few recipes.
Lunch: make your own sandwiches (pb&j, meat, cheese, veggie), cookies, chips, fruit, veggies and hummus or ranch dressing for dip
Dinner: meatball sandwiches, salad and leftover veggies from lunch
Meatball sandwich recipe
1 large bag frozen meatballs (I got mine from Costco) or your own favorite recipe
Favorite marinara sauce*
Put together in crockpot on low and by dinner the meatballs will be done. Put meatballs on hoagie roll and top with cheese.
2 15-oz cans crushed tomatoes
2T dried basil
2T dried parsley
2T Italian seasoning
2t garlic salt
1t finely ground black pepper
If you are using this for pasta, bring to a simmer then reduce to low heat for at least 15 minutes to blend the flavors and heat the sauce. If using in the crockpot simply mix it cold then add to crockpot.
