Mothers Day is a special holiday for US Americans. It’s a day for Moms to spend time with their kids and maybe even get some special treatment. Let’s face it, all year long, mothers work hard doing things for their families.
That’s why at the First Reformed Church it has become our tradition to start Mother’s Day off with a breakfast prepared and served by the men. Jim Hance, Rod Gray, John Coakley and Gary Bernhofer provided the food items for the breakfast. Those already mentioned, along with Ben Berman and Pastor Hartmut, helped with the set-up, did the serving and helped clean up afterwards.
The main menu item was an egg/sausage and cheddar cheese casserole. The recipe was one given to Lauren and I many years ago by Christine Delhagan. The men also served a vegetarian version of the recipe . Other items included on the menu were: cake, fresh orange juice and fruit salad. I guess the guys are getting pretty good with putting together a meal because things went very smoothly and everyone seemed satisfied. (Maybe I shouldn’t make this public as we may be asked to help out more often in the kitchen!)
A free will offering was taken and the proceeds were credited to the Worship and Music Committee.
(Editor’s Note: Thanks, Gentlemen! The meal was delicious!!)
