Hello all. I am wondering if any of you are in the central Florida area? I would like to begin a fundraiser to raise money for the local humane society. I was thinking of a bake sale or potluck dinner swap. Let me know :)
It's nice of you to do a fund raiser for the Humane Society. But this is a very SLOW place. You will getter better results and more answers if you post this in the "Kitchen Chat" and in "Recipes" forums.
Pot Luck sounds odd to me as a fund raiser. For any larger functions I make Sloppy Joe (and "stretch" it" by adding cooked pinto beans). Instead of buns I serve cornbread with it and people really like it.
Once I made it for a pot luck and put it into the liner of an 18 qrt electric roster. Put the cornbread batter on top of the Sloppy Joe and baked it. Then put it back into the roaster to keep it warm and added shredded cheese on top to melt. It was the only thing that had no leftovers after the diner was over.
To make it cheaper I used ground turkey instead of ground beef. Had a turkey in the freezer(paid 69 cents lbs), much cheaper than beef. I used 2 large jars of Ragout spaghetti sauce I bought on sale. Cut up the turkey and ground some, then browned it. Cooked the beans seperate, then mixed meat, sauce and beans and spices, put it into the greased roaster liner and topped with cornbread batter and baked it until batter was light golden brown.
It's economical to make, not as much work as baking, serve with a salad, in Florida you should be able to get leaf lettuce pretty reasonable. The "Joe can be made head of time and kept refrigerated for two days. That would give your helpers a chance to make the same thing at home. It can be made in 9" X 13" pans.
There is an older girl from Florida n Kitchen Chat, am not sure but think she is near Orlando, her screen name is Carrottop.She has two rescue dogs and is ral nice.
Good luck with your fund raiser.
