On the cusp of the new year, the Carol Starr MESH Cafe, with chef Aileen Grossberg in charge of the kitchen, served 20 nutritious, delicious meals. The meal consisted of a colorful mixed green salad with accents of purple cabbage, yellow peppers and red tomatoes in a creamy ranch dressing. The entree was one of our guests favorite preparations – maple-soy baked salmon accompanied by jambalaya rice with green peas. A fresh whole wheat roll and a cookie dessert duo -one a chunky chocolate chip and the other a chewy oatmeal cranberry -rounded out the meal. Seasonal clementines, a bottle of water and a breakfast bar helped fill the takeaway bag.
Thanks to Lynne Kurzweil packing and clean up were a breeze.
As special thanks as usual to Mr. Joe Tyson who picks up the takeaway meals every week and distributes them to our guests.
Happy New Year to all. Make one of YOUR resolutions to support MESH either by helping in the kitchen or donating to the MESH fund.
