On Sunday, Amy Gafney and I participated in the ‘Chef for a Day’ program at Quantum House by making dinner for the current guests. Quantum House is located on the campus of St. Mary’s Hospital on 45th Street in West Palm Beach. It’s a place for people to stay while their children are being treated at the hospital. What they offer to families is a sanctuary to rest, have meals, and have one less thing to worry about for a moment.
The families we cooked for were wonderful and very appreciative. They enjoyed the healthy dishes we made. The healthy spread included chicken and broccoli pasta salad, quinoa salad with tomato, cucumber, feta, and cranberries. Side dishes included cucumber salad, crusty bread, and a fresh garden salad. For dessert, Amy made a divine apple crisp served with all natural ice cream.
This was truly a rewarding experience to serve a comforting and nourishing meal to the families at Quantum House.
It was a great day and I look forward to doing this again!
