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!

Recipes!

Hi,  Everyone-

Last call for recipes!  Sorry to be getting this reminder out so late…. the pace of my life seems to have picked up substantially with the summertime schedule of all 4 kids around all day!  If you haven’t yet, please submit your recipe to the blog right away – thank you!

We have 11 families swapping this month,  so prep 11 entrees and bring 10 to the swap.   We also have the opportunity to gift meals to Aaron’s coworker, whose high school aged daughter has been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrigs Disease).  If it works for you this month to do an extra meal, prep 12 and bring 11 to the swap (or stick with prepping 11, and bring a meal still in your freezer that you have not had a chance to enjoy yet).  We don’t have anyone lined up for gifting meals to in August, so please let us know if you’re aware of a situation where the gift of meals would be helpful.

See many of you this coming Monday night!   Happy weekend!

Heather
