– Our 12 swapping spots are full again!  A warm welcome to Alisha, who is a friend of Holly’s.  We did meals for Alisha’s family a while back when their young daughter was going through treatment for leukemia.  Alisha is taking the extra spot opened up by Megan and Tanya sharing a spot, and she’ll be prepping the Breakfast recipe presented by Tanya that we voted on at the last swap.

– Kristen is sitting this month out due to a family trip to Disney, so prep 11 and bring 10 meals to the November swap.  If you are gifting Marci’s friend, Tina, with a meal, prep 12 and bring 11 to the swap.

– I’ve heard from a couple people that they really enjoyed the late afternoon swap time that we had for the October swap.  We’ll talk a bit next week about whether moving to a 4 pm swap would be a good option during the winter months, so please think some about that possibility.

– An early reminder to please post your recipe to the blog by this coming Friday so that Marci can put the master recipe list together over the weekend.

– Last, here are the December category assignments!
