Hi, Meal Swap Friends –
Just a quick note to check in prior to our swap next Monday evening, January 11th at 8 pm. Didn’t this swap come up quickly? I think so!
We’re full this month at 12 swappers, so please prep 12 entrees and bring 11 to the swap. We did hear from Sara about a situation where the gift of meals would be helpful – “It is a friend of my family who I first met in Mankato a dozen years ago. Eric is a professor of Classics at Gustavus and his wife, Brooke, is currently a medical student in her third or fourth year. Brooke just gave birth to Tiago Oliver during the second of her six-week-leaves between rotations and now is headed back to work/school next week. Eric and Brooke have moved in with her parents who live 20 minutes closer to the hospital she is working at. I don’t think their network of support is as broad as some people might have available after the birth of a child, so the gift of freezer meals would be greatly appreciated by this new sweet family and Brooke’s parents as they manage the life of a medical student, a busy academic and a new baby.” If you’d like to bring along a meal for this family (either from this month or a meal from a prior month that you haven’t gotten around to using yet), please bring 12 meals with you to the swap and Sara will see that the extra meals get to them.
Also the regular reminder to please submit your recipe to the blog by this Friday evening so that Marci can work the recipe pdf magic this weekend. Thank you!
I think that’s all for now… see you all on Monday evening!
