DC Central Kitchen @DCCK (video)

When I was in Washington DC to speak at Mom Congress in April, I learned more about the DC Central Kitchen. I’m just amazed by what they do. This video will inspire you. It blew me away!

    Now that is AWESOME!!!  Every city in the U.S. needs to adopt this approach to feeding school children.  How wonderful that the homeless, addicted, etc. are finding new lives for themselves and helping kids at the same time.  This is a such a “feel good” thing to see!

      I thought this was amazing as well. It was just what I needed to see.

    I can help! The purple-flower plant looks like mint to me. Are the stems kind of square? Taste a leaf, does it taste like mint? Yay, you’re in business. The other plant is definitely sage. 

    I made a dish last night for supper that was a huge hit with my hubby. It started with an onion, cut up and sauteed, then I added 1 lb ground lamb/beef mixed (you could use just beef, whatever you prefer), about 1/4 cup mint leaves, chopped up, 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, about 1 1/2 cup leftover cooked rice, and 2 big spoonsful of tomato paste. I reduced the heat, and let it simmer away, while in another skillet I did a quick sear of 3 pattypan squash, sliced fine. (you could use zucchini or yellow squash or a mixture, the point is to let some of the slices get browned.) Then I combined it all, adding the squash to the meat mixture, and we feasted. 

    That will probably get posted on my own blog later today, but you, Mrs. Q., are the very first to hear of it. http://mlplouff.wordpress.com

      I don’t think it was mint because it didn’t smell minty. Thanks for the recipe — it sounds like something my husband would adore!

     DCCK is wonderful, I’m so glad you posted about them! I worked with them last year and am working on figuring out other ways to work with them. Every aspect of their program is awesome! Did you hear about their other program, The Campus Kitchen Project? Be sure to check that out too!

Need to express, what precisely seriously got my family was initially your current structure. You learn how to make your site more than merely some sort of observation in terms of a matter. What exactly caused it to be feasible for visitors connect. Most effective for you, for the reason that not really that a lot of people realize what they are really executing.
