Writing that reminded me that it's actually been quite a while since I cooked food that was then donated to the DC Central Kitchen and distributed to those in need.
And so I did with the help of my old (as in how long I've known them) friends Jenn, Jason and Theresa and new friends John and Danni.
With the help of other volunteers we made enough food to feed hundreds of homeless men, women and children. The food looked and tasted amazing: I would definitely serve it to any of my friends.
We made eggplant/edamame/tomato salad and two kinds of bean salads. You should have seen the amount of dressing I had to mix for that quantity of food: definitely something I'm not accustomed to because I typically cook just for myself.
