Staff Lunch – Salad Bar

Staff Lunch – Salad Bar

Summertime means I have two extra helpers for staff lunch!  Hooray!

Here’s what we had this month:

A huge pile of salad ingredients

Basil Orange Dressing

Buttermilk Rolls

Cracked Wheat Rolls

Apricots (Sprouts has good sales!)

Citrus Butter Cookies – This is a Pioneer Woman recipe, so you really just have to go to her blog to find it.  Partly because that is the kind, right, copyright-friendly thing to do.  And partly because she writes recipes way better than I do!!

If you only make one thing, make the dressing.  You won’t regret it, even if it takes a whole basil plant.  I promise.

April-Sugar Cookie Bears

May-Peppermint Swirls

June-Candy Cane Thumbprints

July-Orange Shortbread

August-Mexican Wedding Cakes

September-Peanut Butter Pretzels

October-Citrus Gumdrops

November-Chocolate Crinkles


There are several other holiday treats that didn’t make this year’s list, so if you ate something at my house and I didn’t share the recipe, let me know and I’ll put it up!


October Staff Lunch

October Staff Lunch

After an incredibly long pause, I am intending to go back to posting my menus from staff lunches!  I still cook once a month for our church staff, and I am often asked to share the recipes.  Blog transitions over the last year or two resulted in the loss of all my previously posted recipes, so I am working on gradually rebuilding my online collection.  (Requests are happily honored).  Here is the menu (with recipe links) for this month:

All-American Beef Chili

Chili Toppings–sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, diced red onion, minced cilantro, Tapatio hot sauce

Salad de Colores

Fresh McIntosh Apples (thanks, dad!) or Strawberries

Snickerdoodle Blondies

Oatmeal Carmelitas
