off to the show



The locals know that this weekend is the West Coast Women's Show.
You would know that because of all the ads on TV and in the papers.

Today ..the show opens at 1 pm and we'll be sitting at the beautiful Winks booth.
We'll be taking turns mind you because her booth is as big as booths are and we don't want to block her beautiful merchandise which when I stopped in yesterday to have a peek. .
is just as her slogan says ..."make it beautiful".

On Saturday. .the Mennonite Girls Can Cook will be on the Kitchen Theater Stage at 12:30.
Our theme that day will be "Bring your family home for breakfast".
Our aim is to briefly tell our story and show how simple it is to put a lovely breakfast on the table that your whole family will want to come to the table for.

On Sunday. .we'll be on the Kitchen Theater Stage at Noon. .
just as church is getting out.
Our Sunday theme will be "Autumn Soups and Savory Scones".
None of it is earth shattering. .
but then neither are we.

It is our hope that who we are inside will shine on the outside.
We have something very special between the ten of us.
We are not chefs nor do we hold degrees in home economics. .
but we do have a passion to feed hungry kids ..
and our desire is to honor God. .
and give him the glory.



all for now. .

  1. Your caring hearts and your listed passions, are the exact reason that there are so many that want to meet you and buy your books. Being gifted and caring are big drawing cards, not to mention, personalities that reach out to everyone in line. Great formula in my book. Wish you the very best.

  6. You have much more than one with a home economics or culinary arts degrees! You are willing to do God's work. That's huge!

    And how I would love to be in your audience listening and watching. Bringing the family home for breakfast sounds special to me as does Autumn Soups and Savory Scones. (I nearly tried an autumn soup last night. It was called Carrot and Ginger Soup.)

    Enjoy your weekend. I know that you'll all touch hearts and continue to feed hungry children.
