HOUSE NEWS: Osama – and sharing food with the hungry

Like many of you, we woke up this morning to the news that Osama bin Laden had been killed.  Having never identified this one crazed man as the main source of hatred, violence, and religious mania in the world, it’s hard to see what’s changed since yesterday.We take heart in thoughtful responses like  that of James Martin, S.J.

And, as usual on a Monday, we are thinking about our overflowing refrigerator (thank you 441 farmers market farmers!) – and how we can turn it into something wonderful and tasty for Wednesday – and who is going to help. With ample help, we’ll be dishing up warm new potato salad, dilly refrigerator pickles, chefs salad – full of local strawberries, goat cheese, pecans, and boiled eggs, fresh bread, and stuffed pattypan squash. But we really need kitchen help in order to do this. Please let us know if you can help in the kitchen between 9 and noon on Wednesday – OR if you can help serve and clean up  between 11:45 and 3.

HOUSE NEWS: Help Wanted

We’re keeping to our schedule in spite of the change in semesters. If you haven’t volunteered before or have held back thinking we have plenty of volunteers, this would be your chance! Please email or call and let us know when and how you can help so we can make sure to make the best use of you. Wednesdays Cafe and the Breakfast Brigade were particularly short last week.

We’re making “frittatas” and cole slaw for the cafe on Wednesday due to the abundance of potatoes and cabbage in particular as well as a number of other veggies that will embellish the frittatas. If you know how to make these and want to make a couple, let me know.  It’s short notice, I know…

Thanks for all the ways you support us and the house. Hope to see you this week!
