The Easter Bunny makes a late appearance this year, which seems fitting, given the cold wintery March that we’ve had! Hopefully we’ll have some typical spring weather in April to help those blossoms & daffodils pop into action.
Our next special meal will be Easter Dinner, Sunday, April 21st, which will feature Roast Turkey, with Strawberry Rhubarb Pie for dessert. Of course, we will be serving Hot Crossed Buns on Good Friday, as well as for Easter Sunday Breakfast for all of you who enjoy those traditional Easter goodies. We will also have Easter cookies for our tea item that day.
We would like to remind everyone that there is a fridge located on each floor, both in the Lodge & Manor. They are stocked daily with juice & hi-cal drinks, etc. These items are available to all residents; just ask one of the staff to assist you if required.
These fridges can also be used to store resident’s personal food items that need refrigeration. All food stored for personal use should be labeled with the resident’s name and the date it was first put in the fridge. Weekly checks will be made to ensure that food is properly labeled. Any outdated food (dairy products, etc.) or items not dated will be thrown out if there is any doubt as to its safety.
The same applies for those Residents who have fridges in their rooms. Please ensure that items are stored safely and dated. Items found in Resident fridges will be discarded, if there is any doubt as to its safety (ie: out-dated or undated items)
The Food Service Staff wish you all a Very Happy Easter!
We have a new Dietitian, Mary Cross, she is here Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. If you should have any clinical dietary concerns please e-mail her at email@example.com.
