Hi there –
Here’s your friendly reminder to please submit your recipe to the blog by tomorrow evening! We have 11 families swapping this month, so please prep 11 and bring 10 with you to the swap. We’re gifting meals this month to Emily’s friend who just welcomed her second baby, while also experiencing some medical complications both for herself and her husband. If it works for you to do an extra meal this month, you’d prep 12 and bring 11 to the swap.
It’s looking like our May swap will have 10 swappers, so let me know if you know anyone who is interested and would be a good addition to the group. We also have May open for another family to gift meals to, so keep that in mind as well!
Happy almost-weekend! I’ll see many of you next Monday evening!
Hi, All –
Sorry that this is so belated! A last minute reminder to please submit your March recipes to the blog by the end of the day today. This gives Sara time to put the master recipe document together over the weekend so that it’s ready by Monday. And a big thank you to her for all the work that goes into that!
Please prep 10 meals this month and bring 9 with you to the swap. While it looks like we’ll be at 11 swappers for April, we do have both every month and every other month spots available, so if you know of others who might be interested and a good fit with the group, please feel free to contact them. We’re also open to gifting meals in April and May, so let is know if you’re aware of a situation where that would be helpful.
I think that’s it for now…. see many of you on Monday night!
Once again, it’s time to submit your recipe to the blog! Please do so by this Friday night to allow Sara (who is taking over Marci’s meal swap tasks – thank you, Sara!) time to compile the master pdf recipe document.
We meet this coming Monday evening at 8 pm at my house for the February swap. Please prep 10 entrees and bring 9 with you to the swap.
I look forward to seeing many of you next Monday – happy prepping!
Please submit your recipes to the blog by tomorrow (Friday) evening. Thanks, and happy almost weekend!
Happy 2018! With all best wishes and prayers that this year will be one where we know and experience health, peace and joy!
A quick update on next Monday’s meal swap… there will be 11 families swapping, as Essia is taking the month off due to heightened busyness with basketball coaching. Please prep 11 and bring 10 entrees to the swap.
We didn’t have anyone officially lined up to gift meals to in January, so I’d like to put my friend Liz in for this month… we gifted meals to her last year, so you may remember their situation…. her husband has a rare autoimmune disease that caused his sudden paralysis in March. The disease is progressing and he has spent the past 2 weeks in Intensive Care. They are at Mayo, so it’s been tons of driving and schedule juggling as Liz also tries to maintain life and stability for their 8 year old twin boys. If its the right thing for you this month, the gift of meals would be much appreciated by their family.
I look forward to seeing many of you next Monday evening at 8 pm!
Happy Friday, Everyone!
Here is your reminder that it’s time to send in your recipes in preparation for next Monday’s meal swap! As Marci is taking the month of December off, Sara Tan has graciously agreed to collect and compile all of the recipes, so please email your recipe (in blog format) to email@example.com by the end of today. Big thanks to Sara for doing this for all of us! 🙂
There are 10 swappers this month, so please prep 10 entrees and bring 9 to the swap. We also have the opportunity to gift meals to Emily’s chiropractor (who is also her friend), whose preemie twins have had a lengthy NICU stay. If this works for you this month, you’d prep 11 and bring 10 to the swap. We don’t have anyone designated to receive extra meals in January or February, so please feel free to let us know if you know of a situation where meals would be helpful!
If you’ve already tackled some Christmas baking and want to bring a plate of cookies along to the swap to share during the swap on Monday, feel free to! Looking forward to seeing many of you in a few days!
Hi, All –
It’s time for submitting recipes to the blog again! Please enter them by this Friday evening so that Marci is able to compile the recipes into one master document over the weekend. Thanks!
I’m looking forward to seeing many of you this coming Monday at 8 pm at my house… the swap is full at 12 this month, so please prep 12 entrees and bring 11 to the swap. If it’s the right thing for you this month, Essia will be taking any extra donated meals to the 15 year old best friend of one of her students who recently underwent surgery at Mayo to remove a volleyball sized tumor attached to her liver. If it works for you to bring an extra meal, you’d prep 13 entrees and bring 12 to the swap.
I think that’s it for now….happy prepping, and see many of you on Monday!
