I made bolognese sauce with my tomatoes and peppers and decided to make a load of baked ziti for the shelter.
I boiled 20 pounds of dry penne for this. I went through ten large containers of ricotta cheese.
I used all of my biggest bowls.
A huge pot of sauce.
These were so heavy I had trouble lifting them.
A couple of the guys walked out to my car with me when I was leaving the shelter. They thanked me for the food. They asked me if I noticed what the cook was making them for lunch? I sure did. Ugh! Someone gave them dried out cooked ground meat. I swear, it looked like it had been sitting out somewhere for a week. The cook had dumped ketchup all over it and was mixing it with brown sugar. He was attempting to make 'sloppy joes'. They looked awful. This is why I can't stop cooking for the shelter.
The Blog Tech and I are off to our second Fall festival today so I will have lots of photos tomorrow.
