Hi, Everyone –
A quick update before our next swap this coming Sunday, February 8th! We’ll meet at my house at 4 pm both for this month and next, and then reevaluate our meeting time for our April swap.
A few things:
- We are gifting extra meals this month to the friend that Sara told our group about…. A woman with lots going on, including kids with some special needs and a recent miscarriage. Our swap is full this month with 12 swappers, so if you are bringing a meal for this family, prep 13 meals and bring 12 to the swap. Otherwise, please prep 12 and bring 11 to the swap. Jessi has a family for our March swap – if anyone is aware of a situation where meals could be helpful for the April swap, please let me know.
- We heard from a few of you that some of the ham in Megan’s Egg Bake was slightly discolored. She and I chatted, and of course she was horrified, in that she bought a fresh ham and cut it off the bone herself. Some people have just set the ham aside, and I know of others that used it… Megan asked that we convey her apologies as well as her puzzlement about what might have happened with the ham!
- Last, I wanted you all to know that Marci’s mom passed away very unexpectedly this past Saturday. Visitation will be Wednesday night from 5-8 pm at Miller Funeral Home in Fridley, and the memorial service will be Thursday at 1 pm at Salem Covenant Church in New Brighton. Please keep Marci and her family in your prayers as they face this really unexpected loss.
I think that’s it for now… see you on Sunday afternoon, and happy meal prepping!
