A Feast for the Kids

The after school program ends next week.  I am trying to make the kids last meals memorable.  Recently, I stopped at a smoke house to stock up on bacon and sausages.They gave me a half ham and a container of their ham salad for free.  I guess they smoked too many hams for Easter.  I decided to make the kids a groaning board of meats and cheeses.
 I also baked them 60 rolls.

 They could make small sandwiches if they wanted to.

 This tray is so big it was tough to get a pic of it.  I filled it up with smoked cheeses, regular cheese and lots of sliced sausages.

 I added lots of assorted nuts too.

I baked the ham in maple syrup and cut it into wedges then added some grapes and strawberries to the tray.  The Summer program starts in July but over 100 kids have signed up for it so other than occasionally making hot dogs, I won't be able to feed the kids until next Fall.  I hate to even think about how they will eat until then.
