Browsing: Breaking Bread

Many thanks to Upchuck for organizing this opportunity to help others! YHC cooked a hot lasagna meal for 8 folks at Breaking Bread on Saturday 11/27. The meal included Caesar salad, lots of bread, cookies and pie for dessert and a few options for drinks. Per Upchuck’s sage advice I did not opt to bring a Turkey meal! While we are not currently allowed into the building to help serve, it was a great way to help others who need it. My son helped me prepare the meal which provided us some time together.

2 delivered for 8 at this evening’s version of Breaking Bread. Temperatures remained steady at 70 and conditions after dark remained sunny. According to Veers, YHC’s 15-year old, the following might have happened: Dinner of warm ham, buttered green beans, homemade mashed potatoes, King’s Hawaiian rolls, chocolate chip cookies, and some tea / lemonade. YHC and Veers were even allowed inside briefly to drop the food. Several appreciative guests thanked us. NMS: Barbara thanked us for the successful weekend meals (last night via Pucker as well as this evening). She remains exceptionally appreciative of this group. She mentioned that the…

First off, we made a mouthwatering, cheesy, elegant baked ziti with ground beef. Next, we made a breathtaking, colorful salad topped with all sorts of vegetables. Finally, there was crispy, golden garlic bread from the finest grain. And lastly we made crunchy, gooey chocolate chip cookies. All in all, this meal was a success and was for a great cause. DaVinci

We cooked. Ziti, salad, brownies, + BREAD. We arrived to deliver a hot meal only to see Barbara was taking deliveries for the rest of the week. She was excited for our meal however, as it was HOT and ready to go. Sign up gentlemen. Couldn’t be any easier and rewarding + it’s a good deed for some people who desperately need a break. We are looking forward to when serving is an option back on the table. Kudos to Shakedown for following through Sunday even though his day went a little sideways.

Sunday started nicely with a pleasant run around the JRPS with friends until gravity took me down, busted shin, three hours in Patient First getting stitched up… but like running life is nothing but relentless forward progress so I popped a couple ibuprofen and hit the kitchen. Manicotti and Salad with some vanilla ice cream for dessert. As always, Barbara was wonderful and gracious, she does love the men of F3RVA – especially loves her some Splinter (she mentioned him several times though it took me a second to remember who Brian was – lol). If you have not done…

Fireman Ed and Oyster made the smart move and enlisted 2 top chefs for creating the breaking bread menu tonight. Both 2.0s did a great job planning and making each dish. If you could only smell Olivia’s baked ziti and McKenna’s (aka Havoc) cupcake frosting skills are unmatched. The Menu:Baked Ziti – I’m jealous we didn’t get to enjoy this with the residents.  Salad with the last of the garden pick of tomatoes and Cucumbers.  Cupcakes – yes with sprinkles Cold Drinks We’re still meeting staff outside for the meal hand off.  Hope one day soon we will be able to share a meal and break…

It’s that time, fellas. It’s time to show that we have the metal to match words with actions. Who will help carry the load? This message is about asking for your help to make a real-life Impact – both in time and effort – on behalf of a group of people who F3RVA has sponsored for the last ~5 years.  Most of you are aware that F3RVA helps by feeding residents in the Medical Respite facility at the Southside Health Center. This is on the Q sign-up sheet as, “Breaking Bread.” F3RVA chose to expand in 2020 to help out TWO nights…

Gentlemen, We are looking for a couple of good men – and their families – who are interested in an evening of good food served for those in need. Breaking Bread has two open nights this summer. Who among us can help? July 24 (Saturday) August 28 (Saturday) Many thanks in advance.

The PAX was eager to launch at 530, however 6 weeks of rest has made YHC a rusty Q. After a quick apology and disclaimer, the PAX was off and running at 537.
