We all LOVE to cook and entertain,but have little experience in cooking for large groups.This group is to help us and any one else to cook for a large group.Please share your ideas,recipes and what has worked(and not worked) for you cooking for groups.Also any questions you may have,we have a wealth of knowledge here,some very talented cooks who are always willing to help.So join us in this journey of cooking and serving.

The nurse came, took blood pressures and checked blood sugar of anyone who wanted,she gave them a few new chair exercises, they like the exercises very much.
The story teller came, telling more Halloween,scary stories.
And the Minister had lunch with us,he was very happy to join us,usually he's visiting the hospital near the time we serve and doesn't make it back in time.We teased him that he just wanted to play Bingo.
We introduced Bingo and several Seniors were excited to play, some said they hadn't played Bingo in 40 yrs!
Randy volunteered to be the caller, he has a sense of humor and made it fun, we had about 10 Seniors to play,a few others had rides, so they had to go but some said they would have their rides come later.. next week so they could play.It was a lot of fun. P
poor Randy had to really yell, some of our Seniors are hard of hearing!
Denise made jumbo pumpkin muffins as the prize.The winners were so HAPPY!
The nurse thought Bingo was great to get the Seniors excited about something new.

But everyone enjoyed breakfast,I was happy the cantaloupes were sweet and juicy,I don't eat any melons but several people said they were really good,I usually buy fruit only in season but they were on sale and we had some at home,Aunt Patsy said they were still sweet.
The sour cream coffee cake was well received as usual, we've served it several times before and everyone always loves it, it's so moist and tasty.Sometimes when I make it at home,I add fruit to it, apples,peaches and it's really good that way as well.Next time I'm going to try pineapple, my Grandmother used to make a delicious pineapple coffeecake with cream cheese so that should be good as well.
The frittata was very popular,several people had seconds.
It was a good morning!

Even though we do pretty much the same activities each week the Seniors always tell me they had a good time and enjoyed themselves,they always say they look forward to Thursdays.
Anyone have any ideas for some activities Seniors might enjoy?
The movie idea didn't go over well, nor did crafts.
I asked my Aunt if she had any ideas, she said"I"m enjoying the music and listening to the stories,that's fun for me! And of course, the food is always good"
I just don't want anyone to get bored.
