Lexington Division Chow
Thank you for providing Chow to our very hungry and very appreciative Lexington Division and Training Ship Colorado! Chow is a really fun way to get involved with Sea Cadets, and they always appreciate a good meal!
When signing up for a meal, you are responsible for the menu, shopping and preparation. Remember, everyone will get reimbursed.
There are some very basic items in the Scullery. There is some equipment for warming and last minute prep, but not so much for cooking, though we have recently purchased 2 hot plates, a microwave and 2 table top convention ovens. There is also a grill outside. Most will need to be prepared offsite and transported to Chow location. The only meal that we can take early is going to be breakfast. Please make sure, that when you sign up for a meal, you are able to bring your meal on that day.
We are given more definite times and locations the week prior to drill. I will send out a count of those that have RSVP'd so that we know how much to prepare for. RSVP deadline is on Sundays at 1900 (for base access) though we always have some stragglers, so I will get you final numbers on Tuesday.
You do not need to worry about plates, napkins, or silverware as this will be provided.
I have put together a sheet with some tips and tricks and what is requested for each meal for Chow. (Please see attached document) We want to make sure that we are keeping a healthy balance of protein, carbs, fruits and veggies. We also need to remember that we do have allergies (peanut).
Thank you so much for volunteering!
