September Swap Update


Just checking in with a brief update… I hope that getting back to school has been smooth and relatively painless in your households!  We’ve been back to school for a week already, and summer feels like it was way too long ago!

I wanted to get our September numbers to you… we heard from Kelly this month that one of their daughters has been diagnosed with a significant dairy allergy, which allows for virtually no dairy in her diet.  As a result, she needs to pull out of the swap, which is very sad both for her and for us!  Kelly has been in the swap from the very beginning, and her tasty meals and lively presence at our meal swap gatherings will be missed!  Karna is taking the month of September off, so we will have 10 people swapping at the September swap next Monday evening.  Please prep 10 entrees and bring 9 to the swap.  We generally like to keep the swap as full (i.e. close to 12) as possible – right now we have both a full and every other month spot open, so if you know of anyone who would be a good addition to swap, now would be a great time to check in with them!

No one is presently lined up for the group to gift meals to, so let us know if you’re aware of a situation where that would be helpful.  Please remember to submit your recipes to the blog by this Friday evening to save us the extra steps involved in tracking people down on Saturday morning – thanks!

See many of you next Monday eve!
