Wow, 55 people fed today. :)
We had a lot of people at Santa Rita Park today, it was about 45 or so just there. At Estevan Park it was about 10, all the regular core group.
Faith & I made Sloppy Joe's, authentic Spanish Rice (her Grandma's recipe), and Cowboy Beans. We also had water & cookies, as usual. :) Today I learned how to make real Spanish Rice from Faith & it was the best ever !! :) I will keep her Grandma's secret ingredient a secret. ;)
In the middle of our serving the food at Santa Rita Park this wonderful man drove up & gave us a huge box full of different food from Boston Market. :) He said it was left over from a reception they had today. Since we had a lot of our own food & served already, I am saving it, along with the leftovers from our cooking today & I will take it all to the park either tomorrow or on Monday for dinner. This way the homeless will get an extra meal & it all will be heated again then.
What a wonderful gesture form that man & so thoughtful !! :)
A very kind "Water Angel" donated $40.00 & I was able to get sixteen 24-packs thanks to one of my favorite grocery store having the best sale ever. :) The employees there know me & what I do & always let me go through twice or more when there are limits on items like that. :) Every little bit helps & every penny saved buys more food or water. :) Thank you, you guys !! :)
Thank you also to our anonymous Water Angel & J.J. for being the Bringer of Good News !! :)
Thank you Faith for being a great Sous Chef :). J.J. & Marilyn for helping dish out all that food at the parks & Marilyn for helping to clean up the pots at my house afterwards !! You all are really awesome & I soooo appreciate you always !! :)
Thank you Dave & Linda for helping with the groceries again & Dave for loading my car up with the heavy pots & stuff !! You fill my heart with your on-going Kindness !! :)
Below are some photos from today that Marilyn took of the Homeless, J.J. & I.
Good Night now & everyone Sleep with the Angels !! :)
