Nancy Morgan – Comfort Food

Nancy Morgan is scheduled for outpatient surgery tomorrow morning.  Nancy is looking at a six to eight week recovery period.  Her sisters, Suzan (classmate) and Janet, will be staying with her for the first several days.  Beginning Tuesday, Nancy could use some help with meals.

If you would like to help with food, please send me an email at maranathaclass(at) (substitute @ for (at)).  Indicate what day you would like and what you wish to prepare and deliver.  I will communicate with the group of responders to confirm dates, address, phone number, etc.

Nancy has no diet restrictions.  She likes everything, except meatloaf is not her favorite and lasagna (or spicy, tomato-based foods) might not be the best for her right now.  She really likes chicken.  The doctor told her with the difficult recovery she is facing, she needs COMFORT FOOD!

Tuesday, 2/22
Wednesday, 2/23
Thursday, 2/24
Monday, 2/28
Tuesday, 3/1

Day Center Meals

In Sunday’s news from William Meyer, he mentions a Sharon as coordinating meals for the Day Center, meaning Sharon Cambridge, Boston Avenue’s cook. Sharon Cambridge is coordinating entrees for those who want someone to do most of the cooking. You can contact her at the church, 583-5181.

If you are interested in having the class serve at the Day Center again for one of their open spots, please let Sharon Earley know so that she can coordinate with Paul Staat.
