International R.D day fell on March 10, 2008
One of the activities we did--constructing a gingerbread house to demonstrate team work! Presenting...the administrative dietitian's"Pink bunny chalet"

Communication is vital- see the white man talking to the other person looking out of the window?

On St Patrick day, we had (green) cookies; green tinted chocolate and green sprinkles on the cookies...


Amrita and I had been planning for this Social work luncheon event for several weeks and I am glad that everything went well and smooth. Most importantly, everyone loved the food! Of course, I couldn't have done it without my faithful helpers. :)

Table setting-

Wantons and spring rolls with sweet chili sauce

Center piece on the table:
What these items were turned into-

Vegetable kabobs infused with teriyaki sauce!
Orange sesame gourmet salad topped with crispy noodles and oriental dressing:
Chicken and beef skewers: chicken satay and BBQ beef flavored, with peanut satay sauce-
Sticky rice mixed with cilantro and peas, lighten with lemon juice and zest.

Double-dipper tofu sticks:

Directions on how to make it: Add 1 cup of buttermilk and 3 eggs into a bowl. Beat the mixture well. Slice 1 box of tofu into rectangular cubes. Dip the firm tofu into corn starch before dipping into the buttermilk-egg mixture. Once that is done, repeat what was just done ( that's why it is called "double-dipper!). Finally, coat the outer layer with bread crumbs. ( Use the Asian tempura bread crumbs, and spice it up by adding 1 tsp garlic and onion powder). Pierce a bamboo skewer into the tofu before deep frying it.

The dessert table

Luscious molten lava chocolate cake:

Tropical fruit trifle: layers of sponge cake, mangoes, strawberries, whipped cream and tapioca pudding...

Drinks: Pina colada with pina colada rimmer:
On a personal note... The"Glory of Easter" play at Crystal Cathedral was phenomenal. Although pictures undeniably speak a thousand words, this play cannot be captured on photos or video. It is something you have to personally experience to really comprehend the real meaning of Easter and enjoy the play...

@Camp cedar Falls: Beautiful snow and company :)
