What? No Hot-Cross Buns?

I flippantly call the residence where I live "The Old Folks Home" but its proper name is Park Merced Assisted Living Facility. 

On Easter, in order help the Park live up to its high falutin' name, Steve, the chef came up with the following superb menu.

Choice of hot or cold cereal
Choice of juice: apple, orange, tomato, prune
Choice of entree: cinnamon roll and bacon or Eggs Benedict garnished with fresh strawberry
Choice of beverage: coffee, tea, or milk

Hors'doeuvres: deviled eggs (made to resemble happy faces with stuffed olive eyes)
Choice of salad: cottage cheese and pineapple, tossed green with choice of dressing, applesauce
Choice of entree: Baked Ham, sweet potatoes or mashed potatoes, or Cornish Game Hens with wild rice
Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce.
Dessert: pudding

Grilled cheese sandwiches
Tomato soup
Dessert: Cookie

Sounds like the menu of Holland-American Liner.  In fact, once one of the elderly residents looked around the dining hall and asked "How many passengers do we have here?"  He thought we were on a luxury cruise. 
No wonder.

ha, i used to work in those residences..... i have to say... i've seen most of the holiday meals.... as a nurse... they are damn tasty if there's any leftovers, cuz you are usually hungry as hell.
we used to fight over them at "fairview" , other wise known as Odd fellows home of CT.... really... it was.  but some of the food, was downright nasty. and i always felt very sad for the people who ya had to put thix, or thick-it in there....
