Alright-chall… I MUST take a moment to tell you about one of the coolest things we’ve gotten ourselves into lately.. it’s call the Food For All or Food Share.
So here’s the deal.. 6 Families.. 12 adults, 3 kids. Each family gets one night a week [or sometimes every two weeks] to cook a meal for all 15 people [not as hard and scarey as it sounds]. We all live here in Fountain City and live about 1-2 miles from one another. Each night those who didn’t cook come to the house that did with their Tupperware, scoop out what they need and either stay to eat or slip out the door and take it home.
BENEFITS [this is huge!] //
1. There is a $30 limit on each meal.. so one night your not having beanie-weenies and the next filet minion = $30 grocery/dinner budget for 1-2 weeks! Whhhat? Amazing, I know.
2. We get to see all of these amazing folks that have come into our lives every night! We’ve seen most of them almost every night for going on 3 weeks and it’s already building this neat community. Gosh.. it’s the coolest thing
Last night it was the Hensley’s night to cook. I knew I wanted to make a killer chili since it was getting colder… so I searched and searched the web for and great new recipe and ran across one that just made me laugh:
“did you buy a pack of McCormick chili seasoning.. cool.. now through that **** away”
I knew it would be a good recipe or at least I would enjoy making it. Here is a link to the chili recipe of dreams

Fast forward a few hours later and there are 15 people laughing around our kitchen table… our hearts were so full. So thankful for this little adventure and hoping your encouraged to do the same with your group of friends!!
Here’s a few pics I snapped during the cooking + a few of some of my friends.
Here are my onion cutting glasses.. hehe.. truth be told they probably don’t do much good, obviously.. but I feel they may help delay the tears..
