The state of Kansas ordered “Stay at Home” on Tuesday March 23. This began the increase in internet use and text messaging. I was part of a group of ladies planning an anticipated road trip in May. This trip was cancelled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Although the trip was a no go, we continued to stay connected in our text messaging group. We began to encourage more, laugh more and share various recipes amid a virus that succumbed so many people near and far. One day, while texting menu ideas for Easter meals at home, we noticed how creative everyone was getting! We shared photos and videos of the various dishes we had prepared. It was a lot of fun! Normally holidays include many around the table laughing and enjoying great conversations but in this unique situation, we used technology to stay connected and comforted! Thank you technology! Then it came to me… we should create a cookbook! We can share recipes we’ve tried during this time quarantine and social distancing. Everyone thought this was a fun idea! Everyone also thought it would be a great way to include testimonies from our New Bethel Church family as well! So I introduce the next NBC Women’s Ministry Initiative, “Cooking Through Crisis Cookbook”… A selection of stove-top, counter-top, oven, slow cooker and grilling recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and most importantly – dessert! It can be personal recipes, online recipes or family recipes. Just be sure to give credit where credit is due! Men, women and children of the New Bethel Church KCK are all welcome to participate!
Submit your recipe, testimony (100 words or less) and a photo of the dish to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 30th.
The cook book editorial staff will determine final selections.
Thank you & Enjoy! ~ Lady Angela Brady
