St. Patrick's Day for the After School Kids

 I made halushki for the kids for St. Patty's Day. Hey....it has cabbage!  This year's kids are slightly pickier than last year and I just couldn't think of anything Irish that I thought they all would like.  But they love halushki so that's what I made.

 Since I am now cooking for the group in the new town as well as the original group, it limits me somewhat,  I made 25 quarts.

 And I made them 60 individual trifles.

 These are made by layering chopped oreos, chocolate pudding, vanilla pudding and whipped cream.  The are topped with a sprinkling of chopped thin mint cookies.  Some kids ate 3 of them.

Packed up and ready to go.  The slow cooker is for the smaller group.  The larger group got a roaster full of it.  One of the trickiest things about cooking for so many is transporting the food.
