This blog is posted by "Elijah's Table," a joint project of the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration (1 Hood Road, Derry, NH) and Etz Hayim Synagogue (1-1/2 Hood Road, Derry, NH), both located on Hood Road in Derry, NH. Twice a month we provide free, family-friendly dinners, which are served in a relaxed atmosphere. There are other organizations in the Derry, New Hampshire area that also offer free and delicious meals to the public. Please see the calendar on the right-hand side of this blog for a list of upcoming meals. And don't forget the offerings of the Sonshine Soup Kitchen (described on the left-hand side of this blog) and The Derry Salvation Army!

What a fabulous evening we had! Live music courtesy of "Piano Keys Studio," a music school in Raymond; pumpkin spice and chocolate leaf cupcakes, hand-made by some of our teenage volunteers; pineapple upside-down cake; and some delicious main courses -- including a stir fry we are experimenting with. Some of the kids decorated the tables with beautiful red autumn leaves. We had a lot of guests, and the energy was high. We'll see you next time. Upcoming dates for Elijah's Table dinners (5:00-6:30): 11/10/13-- Dinner at the Church of the Transfiguration; 12/08/13-Dinner at the Church of the Transfiguration; and 12/15/13-Dinner at Etz Hayim Synagogue.

The government shutdown is depressing, but Elijah's Table will be serving up delicious dinners at the Church of the Transfiguration on October 13, and at Etz Hayim Synagogue on October 20. Please join us! IMPORTANT: There is a problem with Blogspot and, as a result, I had to replace the LIST of free meals (normally on the right-hand side of this page) with an actual calendar -- at least until the problem is fixed. Please send me a comment by clicking on the envelope at the bottom of this post if you have difficulty using the calendar.

We had a ton of food today, including cheese and crackers, eggplant parm, kugel, garden salad, green beans, garlic bread, and LOTS of vanilla and chocolate cake. The three adorable girls pictured here helped serve (with help from a mom, of course). And this "styling" guest let us know she thought the food was delicious. On my way home, the 1976 song, "Isn't she lovely"? popped into my head. (Click on the title to hear the great Mr. Stevie Wonder celebrate the birth of his daughter: "Isn't she lovely? Isn't she wonderful?")

It was a beautiful summer Sunday. And it was Frank's birthday (one of our volunteers). And it was a day full of fruit salad, and garden salad, and fresh tomatoes with balsamic, and hard boiled eggs, and mac and cheese -- and dessert (pound cake and ice cream), of course. What could be better? Find out in September.
