While I am in the midst of a messy kitchen remodel and now challenged to cook each meal in my temporary kitchen, I am determined not to ‘suffer’ through meal time with my family. I’ve decided that dinner must be the one grounding point of our day while the upheaval around us spins in and out of control. There is one other challenge I will give myself this month, I will find a way to bake something with my limited kitchen resources and not just because I am a glutton for sweets. In honor of Leap Year, that one extra day we are given every four years, I want to make a decision that marks this extra day. I want to make it count. I want to do something that can help make a difference – and I hope that you will join me.
(Standing on soap box) I was inspired by an email I received from the ‘Share Our Strength’ foundation asking to help them in the fight to end childhood hunger by registering to host and/or participate in the Great American Bake Sale. Today they are kicking off the 2012 bake sale season, and they’ve got all of the tools you need to plan for and host a fun, exciting and successful bake sale in your community.
I hope you will join me by whipping out your whisk, heating up your oven and recruiting your loved ones of all ages to bake for the No Kid Hungry Campaign. All the money raised in your bake sales will help feed kids across America. Kids shouldn’t have to go to bed hungry anymore. I hope you will take this LEAP with me.
