This past Tuesday, was a special day. Especially, for my co-worker/friend C. It was his birthday.
Knowing that my friend's children are both living several hours drive from him, I realized that he would spend the day alone, unless one or more of his friends stepped up to the plate.
No pun intended, but I stepped up to the plate! At Red Lobster, where we usually celebrate birthdays together with other friends. Yes, we had just been there last week, but as I said, this was a special occasion.
C took the bus and wheeled himself to the restaurant. I drove myself and met him, there. Unfortunately, our friend M did not join us as she had many times in the past.
You see, M is not well. She needs much prayer. Please pray for her, and her family. Thank you.
In any case, C and I enjoyed a tasty meal and fellowship time, together! Happy Birthday, C!
I was happy to hear C agree to attend my church's 50+ luncheon the following day. In the past, he had done so only once or twice, with our friend M.
Being alone, without many people to befriend him, I believe C needs to attend groups such as this, for he, like everyone, needs fellowship and to create new friendships. Besides, in my opinion, he needs not just the fellowship with others, but also with my Lord, Jesus Christ!
Being wheel-chair bound, isn't easy. Life has done an about face for him. As is what happens for anyone in his shoes, who finds themselves in a situation where they are no longer productive in nature, but looking for healing and persevering, daily.
By the way, I thank you for praying for C... and all those you may know who are in need of healing. May God bless you.
Well, as I agreed to, on Tuesday evening, I prepared the dish I was to bring for Wednesday's pot-luck luncheon. Here's what I made:
Lynnie's Rich-style Peroghy's
1 lb. bacon
2 large onions, sliced
1 large bag of frozen peroghys (or make your own!)
1 1/2 to 2 jars of Alfredo sauce
Fry the bacon in a fry pan. Remove the bacon and wrap in paper towel, etc. Do NOT drain off the grease.
Place half the amount of sliced onions into the frypan, along with half the bag of frozen peroghys. Fry both, together, until onions are sofened and peroghy's are cooked. Remove (I use a slotted spoon) from frypan and place in a baking dish, or disposable aluminium baking pan. Repeat, with the remaining onions and peroghys.
Break up the bacon into pieces and add to the pan of peroghys and onions.
Pour Alfredo sauce over the peroghy's, bacon and onions. Bake about 350 F for about 30 minutes, or until warmed, thoroughly.
No, this is not a low-calorie meal, but it is a delicious treat!
Until next time...
