Habitat for Humanity Dinner

Bite-sized Milk Chocolate and Toffee Houses with a Heart!

Middle-Class Martha's MOPS group (Mother's of Preschoolers) had the opportunity to host a dinner for a group of 23 College Students, who volunteered their Spring Break to travel across the country to help our community.  The Students are spending their week, building a house with Habitat for Humanity, aiding a local Parenting Ministry by working in their warehouse and consignment store and also spending time serving at a local soup kitchen.  I wish I had been so thoughtful in college.  

My Deepest Appreciation and Thank You goes to these Very Special Students.   One in particular, Bridget to whom I would like to thank for organizing this trip.   Bridget had a friend at another University, whom visited our quaint little town last year and worked on a Habitat for Humanity House.  We have been hosting Marquette University for just over 25 years.  Bridget was inspired to organize a trip for her University.   She was able to gather 23 students, all willing to give up going to the beach inexchange for a week of hard work.

Todays youth, give them a chance... they will surprise you!

The Dinner was Fabulous thanks to our Fantastic Moms and their generosity.   The students were so happy with the home cooked meal, they even asked for a few of the recipes.

Stephanie's Corn Souffle

1 can Cream of Corn
1 can Whole Corn
1 Jiffy Corn Bread Mix
1 Stick of Butter

Mix all the ingredients together and place in a greased dish.   Bake at 350 degrees for 45 mins until golden.

DelRae's Spicy Fritos and Corn Recipe

Mix the first three ingredients together and refrigerate a few hours before serving. Immediately before serving, mix in the bag of fritos and enjoy!
