Marathon indeed! Livo, did you manage a photo of the whole lot? (Extra wide lens required!)  :)

Onions, I didn't take a single photo as it was mainly all just big pots and I had no intention of posting any.. The actual lunch function involved mainly school children and there are laws concerning photography of children here now. Even my wife as a teacher is not allowed to have digital images of her students on her mobile phone for anything other than temporary storage before being uploaded to work computer equipment and nothing is allowed to be kept on personal computer or storage devices at home.

Thanks Phil, It was a big effort but it went down well. My wife was receiving text messages last night from fellow staff members who took leftovers home for family.  They loved the food.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

My wife recently took over management, of a recently acquired contract for a primary school kitchen (5 yro - 11 yro), where the management were weak and not doing the job.

As part of that, the food must be prepared and delivered on time and to the agreed menu and for this, she must take mobile phone pictures of the food, every day, as presented... I am guessing that if there was any dispute of date and time then this would be available from the metadata of each photo.

The photo's are uploaded to the school but also kept for a while until they can be uploaded to the company database as well.

I understant your point Livo and rules is rules but if there are no children present, as in my wifes case, then the photo's should have been OK and maybe could have been agreed with the relevant staff?

I only mention this as it seems a shame that we cannot see all the hard work you went to and you have no record of it.

Regards,
BAJ

To be honest I didn't really have time to worry about photographing it.  Once it was all cooked and heated I simply delivered it in my big Eskies (cooler boxes) and left.  My wife and the other staff were still preparing naan and pappadams so it wasn't served until 15 minutes after I left it there.  Still hot too by the way.  I'm sorry if I've not lived up to expectations, but it really was a matter of do it and get it done on time.

No problem Livo, asham, but as BAJ said, purely as an opportunity to show off the product of your enslavement over the stove!  Nice one though, just the sheer numbers make me sweat  :)

Just under a mug full.... 200ml
I pop a mug on the scales, shove a freezer bag inside and then zero the scales.... all set up!
pour off to half inch or so from the top and it should be around 200ml. No need to weigh really but I'm a bit OCD
