We need your support!

If you're reading this, you're likely a friend of BCS, and so I'd like to invite you to join us at American Flatbread in downtown Burlington for a simple, delicious fundraising event!
Flatbread for School Lunch - BCS Bake is happening tomorrow night from 5-10pm at the Burlington Hearth. A portion of the proceeds from all the flatbreads sold during the event ( eat in or take out) will benefit the Burlington Children's Space food program!
We are so grateful to American Flatbread for hosting us - and we can't wait to eat! Please stop by if you can, or order some food to go - you will be helping us fulfill our mission and fill hungry bellies all year long!

In other news... the Summer of Salads continues!
We have been enjoying all kinds of seasonal deliciousness at lunch. Fruit salad with nectarines and blueberries, chicken salad with dill, chopped salad with local greens, and even chef salad as a main dish, with ham, cheddar cheese, chick peas, and red grapes. The kids loved it, and so I pass the recipe ( though it's more of an idea than a recipe, really) on to you. I've made it at home twice for dinner on super hot nights and it's lovely to keep the kitchen cool, and still eat something satisfying.

Chef's Salad

(Serves 4)

1 head soft lettuce, like bibb, roughly chopped
About 4 cups crunchier greens, like romaine, chopped
A handful or two of spinach, also chopped

Arrange a good amount of the mixed greens on each of 4 plates

From there, just go crazy. Add as many veggies as you like, at least a cup of each, cut into bite sized pieces.
I used carrots, red cabbage, red onion, and cucumbers. Absolutely anything you like will work. Arrange little piles of the individual veggies on top of the greens.
Next comes the protein. I used chopped deli ham and cheddar cheese in little chunks, plus chick peas. Make sections of each. I also added halved red grapes for a little sweetness.
Serve with bread and butter, and a few choices of dressing. Salad for dinner!

Here we have a happy table of salad eaters... everyone pictured tried, and enjoyed, the greens!

Please come support our food program tomorrow night, and stay cool!
