Last minute update

Hi there…

I’m cooking my pina colada sauce as I write this!  For any of you who might be interested, we have a last-minute opportunity to gift some meals this month.  Several months ago – I think it may have been in January – we did meals for a family from my church, Shelly and Adam.  Adam (just in his 40’s) was diagnosed with colon cancer and in the last two weeks has just finished up an aggressive, 6 month chemo treatment regime.  He was supposed to head back to work this past week, but now has blood clots in his lung.  On top of this, the transmission went out in their vehicle this last week, and Shelly is still grieving the loss of her mom, who died about 2 months ago, so they’ve had a lot going on.  As a family with 4 kids living at home, any meals that they don’t have to stress too much about preparing would be really appreciated.  I know it’s too late for most of us to make an extra of what we are bringing to the Monday evening swap, but I was thinking that if perhaps people had meals in their freezer from past months that they haven’t gotten to yet, this might be an opportunity both to free up a little space and to bless this family who has so much going on right now.  As always, no pressure, but just if this happens to work for you this month.

See you Monday evening!

Pre-June Swap Update

Hi, Everybody…

Happy almost summer!  We just have two more days of school here in Minneapolis, so it feels like we are on the verge of summer really being here!  I’m looking forward to seeing all of you this coming Monday at 8 pm at my house for our next meal swap.  I have a lot of Pina Colada pork chops to prep before that time!

Please plan to prep 11 sets of your entrée, and bring 10 to the swap, leaving one at home for your family to enjoy.  We don’t have anyone designated to gift meals to this month, nor do we have anyone in the que for July or August, so please feel free to let me know if you know of any situations where the gift of meals would be helpful.

Please also get your recipes submitted to the blog by this coming Friday evening so that Marci can assemble them in the master pdf document.  As always, we are really thankful for her work in pulling that together for us each month – thanks, Marci!

See you this coming Monday!

Heather
