Due to the long pre-season, there are a lot of breakfasts this year! Therefore, each spread has fewer parents assigned, resulting in more effort & cost per spread. Please keep in mind, however, that your daughters will be benefitting from this as well, as they will be provided 12 nice breakfasts over the course of the three and a half weeks of pre-season. Spread leaders will send out an email to organize the breakfasts, and the group can decide how to divide up the costs - compiling receipts and redistributing the money, or just dividing up the food items into ~even groups and letting folks pick what they bring. All spreads will be held in the team room again this year. A large quantity of paper plates, napkins, forks and cups will be purchased in bulk prior to the first practice and left in the team room, so that each spread group can just concentrate on the food items.
We have about 60 swimmer/divers this year, and they can all eat a lot! Here are some suggestions for possible food items to choose from, or make up your own. Please keep vegetarian/vegan swimmers/divers in mind, and provide a balance of healthy food along with some not-so-healthy if desired.
- Cheesy potatoes (4 9x13 pans)
- Egg casseroles (4 9x13 pans)
- Bite-size quiches (Gordon’s or Costco)
- Bagels/cream cheese (4 dozen quartered)
- Bacon/sausage (5 lbs)
- Oatmeal with berries/nuts
- French toast casserole (4 9x13 pans)
- Monkey bread
- Fruit cups
- Yogurt parfaits with fruit & granola
- Chocolate milk (3-4 gallons), White milk (1 gallon) and 1/2 gallon OJ
