My church is hosting three families in transition (they've lost their homes and jobs) and I have signed up to cook for them this week. I will be feeding about 15 people in all, so not a huge crowd. I'm looking for recipes that will please non-foodie types (we have back-up Bell and Evans chicken nuggets for any picky kiddos), but are a little more interesting than run of the mill church casserole dinners, which is what most of the other cooks will be serving on their nights. I am expecting to receive several pounds of excellent tomatoes from our CSA, so would love to incorporate those. Also, our church has no A/C, so would prefer not to stand over a hot stove stirring for hours. Pizza--my specialty--is out because two other families are already doing this later in the week.
Thanks so much for any ideas you can provide!
