comfort food

On December 28th, my friends and I had
 the privilege of serving dinner
to the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House
that serves The Children's Hospital in our area.
When we started doing this a year ago, we found out that
 someone provides dinner every night.
What a great ministry!
We are happy to do it four times a year.


A couple of our hubbys came to help set up and clean up.
Mine is on the left! :-)


I've told you this before, but the house is beautiful.
Everything is first class..the kitchen is amazing.
Tons of storage, three dishwashers, two stove tops and ovens,
two huge refrigerators and a large freezer.
All kinds of cookware and dishes....
everything the families could need.
They do Christmas well, too. The decorations were lovely!





Back to the reason for our visit...the food!
We prepared four types of soup, cornbread and Texas toast.
Our hope was that this "comfort" food
 would comfort the families just a little on that chilly night.


And, of course, we brought dessert!
There are always cakes there from local bakeries,
so we usually bring something simple.
This time it was Rice Krispie Treats and
oatmeal cookies.


There were 8 families staying in the house that night.
Most of them young couples with pre-mature babies.
It was a blessing to meet them, hear their stories
 and pray for them.
We look forward to April when we get to do it again!

  1. What a great ministry. Just seeing those 4 crockpots lined up gave me some comfort. This Thursday our small group is preparing a meal and taking it downtown to fee some of the homeless in Seattle.

  3. My daughter and her hubby stayed in the Ronald McDonald House in St. Louis when T#3 was in the NICU (not sure that he was going to make it). I know that she was blessed by those who did so many small things to make their stay more pleasant during a very difficult time. Bless you and your friends for helping moms and dads who are facing some difficult times.
