The Internet Kitchen: Giving Back
These days I have a somewhat flexible schedule so I decided to start volunteering once a week at a local homeless shelter. Specifically, I’ll be working in the kitchen there. Since I’ve been spending a lot of my free time over the last few years learning how to cook, I figured it would be a good way to give back to the community.
So, once a week I’m going to be cooking breakfast, my favorite meal to cook by far!
There are two details about this though that make me a bit nervous:
1) I’ll be cooking by myself. No helpers.
2) On average, I’ll be cooking for 90 people. Minimum.
So it’s sort of like having my own restaurant once a week. I actually think I’m going to really enjoy it and I really hope that I help people out and give them a good meal to start their days.
But yea… a bit nervous for my first breakfast!
Let’s make something Spring-y for the poll this week.
And a few links as always…
Prince William’s Groom Cake – Guess what? I didn’t wake up at 2AM today to watch the Royal Wedding. I was going to go to the wedding, but I think my invite got lost in the mail or something. Maybe I’ll just make this cake instead… (@ Sprinkle Bakes)
How to Make a Steamed Artichoke – Artichokes are one of those baffling veggies for most people. But if you can get past their strange leafy armor, they’re really delicious eating. The only thing I would add to this steamed ‘choke is butter. Lots of butter. (@ Summer Tomato)
Cilantro Lime Hummus – Three of my favorite things! I know some people hate cilantro and so this recipe, to them, would be like garlic on a vampire. But for those cilantro lovers out there, this looks pretty solid. (@ Make It Naked)
Have a great weekend everyone!
