Bacon Wednesday: Pull-Apart Bacon Cheese Bread

We have volunteers in the warehouse today so naturally we had to offer them some sustenance since it’s about 42 degrees below zero out there. Nothing says lovin’ like some bacon cheese bread. It has no redeeming nutritional value unless you count the flecks of onion and green pepper. I say let’s count them. Pull-Apart…

Philosophy Tuesday: Patience

Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is “timing. It waits on the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way.”  ― Fulton J. Sheen You know who knows this better than anyone? Nonprofits – especially what we call “Mom and Pop” nonprofits. Those are…

Covered in sticky notes

The Chicks love to visit our partner agencies.  All our 90 nonprofit partners do such important work and it’s nice to get out in the field every once in awhile to see what they’re up to. So yesterday, Betsy and I visited the Hope Family Health Clinic in Westmoreland. The clinic provides medical care to…

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon, Brown Sugar and Honey Buns

You won’t want these. Really, you won’t.  That is why we have eaten all of them just to save you the trouble. It’s 20 degrees in the warehouse and the Chicks have to keep their strength up. These buttery bites of bacon goodness are from a website called Oh, Bite it! Don’t get flustered. It’s…

Philosophy Tuesday: Gratitude

Most of us have more than we need. When you consider the basics (a roof over our heads, clothes on our backs and food on the table), pretty much any other material good is a “want” not a “need.” I have observed over the years that those of us who are materially blessed always think…

Bacon Wednesday: Bacon Pepper Jelly Biscuits

Warehouse work is hard. Lots of lifting, toting and pallet jacking around our 5,000-square-foot palace of concrete and cinder block. So the Chicks can justify a bacon splurge every Wednesday. Just to keep our strength up, of course. This is an easy one – sweet, heat and salt. The sweet and heat come from red…

Philosophy Tuesday

“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” Martin Luther King, Jr. We see it every day at CRC Nashville. People…
