September Swap Update

Hello!

Just checking in with a brief update… I hope that getting back to school has been smooth and relatively painless in your households!  We’ve been back to school for a week already, and summer feels like it was way too long ago!

I wanted to get our September numbers to you… we heard from Kelly this month that one of their daughters has been diagnosed with a significant dairy allergy, which allows for virtually no dairy in her diet.  As a result, she needs to pull out of the swap, which is very sad both for her and for us!  Kelly has been in the swap from the very beginning, and her tasty meals and lively presence at our meal swap gatherings will be missed!  Karna is taking the month of September off, so we will have 10 people swapping at the September swap next Monday evening.  Please prep 10 entrees and bring 9 to the swap.  We generally like to keep the swap as full (i.e. close to 12) as possible – right now we have both a full and every other month spot open, so if you know of anyone who would be a good addition to swap, now would be a great time to check in with them!

No one is presently lined up for the group to gift meals to, so let us know if you’re aware of a situation where that would be helpful.  Please remember to submit your recipes to the blog by this Friday evening to save us the extra steps involved in tracking people down on Saturday morning – thanks!

See many of you next Monday eve!

An Early Reminder to Post your Recipes!

Hi, Everyone –
This is your surprise EARLY friendly reminder to please submit your recipes to the blog by Friday evening. Thank you, and continued thanks to Marci for compiling the recipes for us each month!

We’ll meet at my house next Monday at 8 pm – for those of you (like me!) who still will be prepping this week, we are prepping 11 and bringing 10 to the swap. We’re gifting any extra meals this month to my friend Liz’s family…. We did this a couple of months ago as well and their family was so, so appreciative of the help this was to them.  Liz and her husband, Jade, have twin boys that are good buddies of our son,  Axel, and Jade suddenly became paralyzed from the waist down in March.  They are fighting to keep the paralysis from progressing, and doctoring at Mayo to try to understand the rare autoimmune disease that is attacking Jade’s body.  If it’s the right thing for you this month, their family would be really blessed by any meals we send their way.  There is no one designated for extra meals in September or October, so feel free to let us know if you’re aware of a situation where meals would be helpful!

My family is headed out on vacation to British Columbia and Washington state early Wednesday morning (August 9th) and we’ll be gone thru the 21st. This means that I’ll be away next Monday night when our swap meets.  My sister,  Holly, will be house sitting for us, so we’ll still have the swap at my house at the normal 8 pm time, and Marci will host and make sure all runs smoothly. Please contact her with any swap related things once I am away.  Thanks!

Enjoy your week, and thanks for your help in getting the recipes submitted to the blog!
