Grits, bacon, toast and egg, now that’s a mighty fine way to start the day. However, Ella told me later that she had seen an ad for IHOP that had her mouth watering before she was out of bed. I know what my bride normally orders at IHOP: stuffed French Toast. We may have to do a drive up there one of these next days.
We had time for a several games of Fast Track before going to Operation Liberty Hill. Ella won them all.
We unloaded the food to one side of the OLH building and then drove to the other side to unload the non-food items.
Arriving at eleven o’clock, we discovered that the HCCM produce distribution wouldn’t begin until twelve. But, hey! We were first in line. This isn’t exactly a food pantry. They distribute bread and/or produce (which is usually at its “sell by date”) donated by local groceres such as H.E.B., and Whole Foods. Today we received some croissants, Kaiser rolls, celery, arugula, 4 baking potatoes, red seedless grapes, bok choy, 2 oranges, a bag of apples, 2 lps dry roasted almonds, and a couple onions. The onions were given to a neighbor.
I made a beef and vegetable soup for lunch, after returning home. I tore pieces from our leftover brisket, added a can of mixed veggies, chopped celery, V8 juice, and some beef soup starter. Rather tasty if I do say so myself. I also sliced and toasted some of the cheese and jalapenos croissants that we received today.
