Christmas on the Menu in Waikato Hospital’s Kitchen

Hamilton’s Meals on Wheels customers will get all the trimmings this Christmas Eve.

Red Cross volunteer drivers will deliver over 200 Christmas meals throughout Hamilton tomorrow with clients taking their pick between turkey and cranberry sauce or lamb and mint sauce served with new potatoes, minted peas, mixed roast vegetable medley, and for dessert Christmas pudding with brandy sauce or fresh fruit salad with whipped cream.

“It’s important that Christmas and other special occasion meals are enjoyed by our customers,” said Waikato Hospital Food and Nutrition Services operations manager Jo Davidson.

“On New Year’s Eve we also do a special meal, which this year is traditional roast pork with apple sauce and stuffing, served with vegetables followed by chocolate peppermint cheesecake for dessert.”

Meanwhile, for those families unfortunate enough to spend Christmas Day at Waikato Hospital, the hospital ensures patients and their families will get some traditional, yummy Christmas fare.

Homemade shortbread is offered at morning tea and on the menu for Christmas lunch is roast turkey, roast lamb, or vegetarian lasagne followed by Christmas pudding and brandy sauce, mini pavlova with berry coulis and ice cream for dessert.

Options for dinner include soup, ham salad, cheese log and salad, or spinach and feta soufflé, followed by fruit salad, ice cream, and Christmas cake for dessert.
