What a colorful dinner we served today. :) It looked like Christmas with some fall colors mixed in, red & green & orange & yellow. And then there was the tossed salad also full of colors. We all eat with our eyes too & today the eyes had some feasts along with all the bellies. :)
We had ham again since Albertson's had a great deal on them a little while ago & I stocked up a lot. It will be ham for a little while longer, there are three more frozen. I asked the Homeless if they are tired of ham & they said no, not at all. Chicken is another story though. :) Apparently they get chicken fed quite often.
We fed 45 people today altogether & were able to hand out a few granola bars, etc. I don't take them very often, as there isn't always room in my SUV for more to carry along. I wish my car was bigger sometimes, so I could take more things to the parks, but it is all good !! :)
Thank you Faith & Ted for all your loving cooking help & it was really awesome to meet you today, Ted !! :) I loved how you kept looking for ways to help & to just be there for Faith & I with whatever needed to be done !! :) You fit right in !! Please come back soon !! :)
Heily dear, thank you for baking all those yummy brownies for the homeless (and for us too ;) !! Ted can have some next time & so can you !! We deserve treats too, since we work hard to get the meals cooked. :) Those brownies were just too good for words !! :) Please make more soon. :)
Dave & Linda here is another shout-out of Gratitude for your continued & ever so loving help !! :)
You are the best neighbors one could have & I so appreciate you both !! :)
J.J. & Marilyn thank you for being there for me by helping serve & to crack jokes at times. :) I appreciate both of your help always, even though sometimes I forget to tell you so.
Marilyn my thankfulness to you for cleaning up all the salad & pasta bins tonight & for letting me sit down for a little bit to rest my feet. I am going to be 70 at the end of next month & sometimes I feel it, although I try to not give it too much power. :)
I am very, very tired tonight, it was quite hot out there at the parks. So I will keep this short & say good night to everyone now. Sleep with the Angels & please pray for all the Homeless out there in this heat & humidity right now.
