Well, it's not really the kitchen that is great - it's our kitchen manager, April! She does an amazing job planning meals for the Next Level camp in the summer, and all of our outside groups that come for retreats. And most importantly (ha ha), she prepares food for the year-round staff. Just kidding -but that is one of the great perks of having a great chef like April around. Not only does she have initiative - she wrote an essay that won Ligonier camp 1000 dollars AND a free kitchen deep-clean from the Dawn company - but she gets free samples to try out on our staff. So far we've experienced whole-weat Pop-Tarts, deep fried green beans & cheesecake bites, mini pork chops, and much more. We're always looking for new, healthier options for our campers, as well as a few items that make great treats. While fried green beans may never make the cut, the whole-grain Pop-tarts have been a big hit on breakfast-in-bed day!
Just today, April made a great breakfast and many of us were able to sit down and enjoy it together - eggs, bacon, hash browns, toast, OJ and fresh coffee - what a treat! It's always a fun surprise to be able to sit and talk to everyone while enjoying a hot breakfast.
Thanks, April - you do a great job!
