We have changed up the menu for this month. Also this is the last month we will be going down until June (the previous coordinator has offered to take April and May for us!). RSVP and let me know if you will be joining us, sending food (and let me know if and where it needs to be picked up), or if you will be sitting this month out. I appreciate everyone's help.

5 lb ground beef:

What great fun and what an AWESOME group of kids! We had one new girl join the group this month and she caught on quickly! The residents seemed thrilled with the meal, and the kids did just a great job, I was able to sit once most of the meal prep was finished. I tend to forget how hard it is on a pregnant body to be on your feet nonstop for hours at a time.

The next time we go back to RMH will be in June....hard to believe that the baby could be almost 2 months old by then...depends on how much longer it decides to keep baking!
