Cooking for Homeless Shelter

EllenMM | Sep 7, 2007 08:16 AM

I have been providing food for a homeless shelter housing about 12 adults. This month, like last, I have been "assigned" the main dish. The food is to be dropped off in the morning, refrigerated and served that evening after being heated in on oven. Last month I made a chicken sausage, onion, bell pepper melange which was very popular. I'm trying to come up with a different dish this month - not too costly, not too exotic, that can be prepared the day before, and held until reheating before serving. One other caveat: I deliver it in a disposable alum. foil pan, so I'm looking for something that I can either prepare in one, or transfer to one for reheating. I was thinking of a paella of sorts or arroz con pollo. Any other ideas?
