Charity Cooking

At All Holy Spirit Greek Orthodox Church, we get into some great little projects. One of them happened a few Sundays ago where we went and cooked at the Rainbow House. I love large cooking so I was definitely in on this one.

The Rainbow House is a facility that hosts families that have sick kids at Children's hospital right up the street.  So nice to be able to interact and comfort folks in their hour of need.

Our assignment was too make a dinner to feed about 30 or more that wasn't pasta or lasagna. They get a lot of that.  So our pit boss, Debbie Birge, decided to go Greek (imagine that) with lots of olive oil, lemons and oregano. We serve roasted potatoes, roasted chicken and salad and had set up an ice cream bar for desserts.

I was designated head chef and everyone was my Sous Chef, to cut potatoes, wash and dress the birds and set things up. So much fun and a pleasure to cook there. They have commercial fridges, 4 complete kitchen stations with sinks and stoves. We used everything we could and it made really quick work. Disposable pans made clean up a breeze.

Me and the Boss
Could not asked for a better group of people to work with or a nicer venue. The leftovers went in the fridge for resident snacking and lunches.
