Hi there, we are on the road to the 10th Annual Tahoe Community Thanksgiving. A couple of new posts then quite a few old ones.  I have kept the old ones out of sheer laziness.  Content is still correct however dates will not be, So just remember that Thanksgiving is on 11/28 this year and all the other dates will fall into place.

It's beginning to look a lot like Thanksgiving!

It's beginning to look a lot like Thanksgiving! Well maybe just the 15th of October which is close to Thanksgiving. So here we are for the 10th time in 10 years it is the anniversary of the Tahoe Community Thanksgiving.
If you would like to volunteer go here     

and sign up for your favorite task. 
Or you can call or email Meera at 775-230-1066

Remember this event is not a soup kitchen this is an outreach to the hungry, homeless and lonely cleverly disguised as a community party because no one wants to admit to being  hungary, homeless or lonely.

We must be doing things right or we would not be here at year 10

We are still looking for music and dancers for this year's Thanksgiving event. Call me!

This is my all time favorite Thanksgiving graphic but remember Thanksgiving feast foods are not very healthy for your best pup friend. The food is too rich and can cause pancreatitis. Which is painful and can be deadly. So love your pets but feed sparingly from the table, if at all.

Wow, Ready, Set, Here We Go

Are we ready? Well we have turkeys and fixin's and volunteers. We have one sad lonely can of cranberries on the shelf.  I should have taken a picture of it, it's so lonely the gravy is trying to keep it company. More shopping to be done. Have I mentioned that I HATE shoppping. But in the interest of full disclosure I may treat myself to sushi after a grueling shopping trip In Reno.

Enough of that. Here are the current plans.  If you want to set up, prep cook, or drop off or pick up  ingredients come to the Event Center 8318 N. Lake Blvd. Between the hours of 9-3 Monday Tuesday and Wednesday. You will find us (oh I so hope it's us and not just me) slaving away in the kitchen. My phone gets absolutely NO reception at the event center so just show up or call 530-546-7249.

Wednesday is the set up and decorate day, kids welcome to help. If you plan on dropping by on Wednesday you might want to bring a snack to keep the troops happy.
Especially one that looks like this!
Happy Thanksgiving preparations to all!

What Are you Thankful For?

I am thankful for so many things, how about you? Biggest thing; Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior and my best friend, without Him I am nothing. Big things like my family and friends. Fluffy things: my foster dogs, although Bizibela is not the least bit fluffy but she is adorable.
They are patiently waiting to see Santa Paws last year.
Or maybe they were waiting for their turkey leg.
Just like this guy.

So what are you thankful for?

The I Hate To Shop Please Considering Doing it For Me List #1

The title pretty much says it all.
  • Potatoes: Idaho or yellow
  • Yams/sweet potatoes
  • Onions
  • Celery
  • Chopped celery/onions (about 10 pounds each)
  • Zucchini green and yellow
  • Broccoli
  • Red, yellow green peppers (just a few pounds needed)
  • Carrots
  • Salad greens (American Blend is fine)(need only about 6 pounds total)
  • Pearl or boiler onions (small bag)
  • Cranberries (fresh or canned)
  • apples (anything but red delicious works well)

Generally speaking these things come in cases of between 20 & 50 pounds. Since we do not want to be a burden to our donor’s, one of anything is plenty. If they want to do more that’s ok too. Remember to arrange a follow-up date (to remind them to order goods) and a pick up date. Fresh needs to be at the Event Center on Monday Morning November 24 by 10 ish. Any unused perishable uncooked food goes to Project MANA for the next distribution.
