Mississippi Meat Loaf

Breakfast at Camp Coast Care

Breakfast at Camp Coast Care

You might notice that the gentleman in the right foreground is having cold pizza for breakfast. That’s one of my favorite dishes. Alas, I had to dine on eggs, bacon, sausage, oatmeal, and biscuits.

At dinner this evening, we had a marvelous meat loaf with mashed potatoes, peas and carrots, salad, and banana pudding for dessert. Needless to say, they take good care of the volunteers here.

The camp also provides us with the meat, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and bread to fix our own lunches. Today’s star attraction (to me at least) was the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

Naturally, we were expected to work for our meals. We accomplished a good bit today.

Half a roof is better than none!

Half a roof is better than none!

I am dog tired. It’s one thing to carry a two by eight by twenty-two feet piece of lumber… it’s another thing to tote it up steps to a first floor that is fourteen feet off the ground. Then, after cutting them to fit, passing them up to the waiting hands of the crew working on that roof is enough to tire out even the youngest volunteers.

But I encourage anyone who is able to take the time off to visit Mississippi and lend a hand. It will give you a wonderful sense of accomplishment.
