Popcorn, Indiana Chocolate Peanut Butter Drizzlecorn

Posted October 16, 2014 by Elizabeth

Popcorn, Indiana Chocolate Peanut Butter DrizzlecornI love popcorn.  There was a time when I would happily eat the stale pink kind from the mall but then I decided I really only liked the theatre kind with extra butter.  Recently though I’ve been dabbling a bit in gourmet popcorn and the theatre popcorn has pretty much gone the way of the […]

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Posted October 13, 2014 by Anonymous

I’ve been baking a lot with pumpkin this fall, it kind of got out of hand. It started with some pumpkin waffles and turned into an attempt to find the best pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe around and then with just one cup of pumpkin left over, I quickly whipped up a batch of some tasty [Read On]

When All Else Fails, Mangia! Food Tips from Puglia

Posted October 11, 2014 by Anonymous

As I stand on the balcony I furry my brow at the large and dark clouds that inch closer to our hotel at an alarming rate. Please don’t let it rain I think to myself as I close shut the doors and rest my head against the pillow. I awake in the morning to the cries of thunder and the sound of rain violently banging on the outside of my window. I have awoken at the Hotel Residence Arianna Club [...]

Rosie’s dinners build community

Posted October 9, 2014 by Erich Jacoby-Hawkins
I’ve written before about Rose “Rosie” Romita’s holiday dinners at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, which she puts on with volunteer assistance and donated food. But it’s time to update the story, because her dinners are evolving from charity to community, becoming something even more than just feeding the hungry.

Regularly serving as many as 800 meals to people who otherwise might not have a chance at a good holiday feed is pretty special, but sharing a meal together is a bonus. And that’s why more people are being invited this year: not just to get food, but to share community.

Although our city and our houses are getting bigger, our families seem to be shrinking. Many people either don’t have much or any family to spend the holiday with, or have family who are too far away. Eating alone or as a small family is fine, but on traditional holidays it can seem lonelier, somehow.

So if you find yourself in that situation this year, please come to Rosie’s Thanksgiving dinner! Students, seniors, or anyone who doesn’t have a big group of family or friends to spend the day with, please join us at the Community Wholeness Centre (CWC) at 59 Maple on Monday from noon to 6. You can bring kids or friends, too. All ages, all incomes, all kinds of people; the more, the merrier!

The event is also open to local musicians if you’d like to have a welcoming audience, and even if you aren’t so musically skilled, the karaoke machine will be set up for your singing pleasure.

This is the only turkey – please donate more turkeys!

Of course, none of this can happen without the support of the community. There are always plenty of volunteers willing to lend a helping hand, so many that it’s not worth leaving your family behind just to come down and help out. But other donations are always needed. The CWC is getting the ball rolling by donating the kitchen and dining space, but there is still a great need for turkeys to be the main course. Beverages, desserts, and other treats are always appreciated, or care items like new socks or toiletries that can make life a little easier for those getting by with less.

So again, one and all are welcome this Monday from noon to six at the Community Wholeness Centre at 59 Maple street. If you are able to donate a turkey or any other kind of food or supplies (or grocery money or gift cards), please email CateringbyRose@gmail.com or call 705-722-7763. Your donation and your company are appreciated by all as this dinner grows into a tradition for the whole community, a chance for us all to come together and give thanks for our blessings many or few, most of all our thanks for having each other.

A version of this – with Rosie’s name censored out (!) – was published as my Root Issues column in the Barrie Examiner as “Thankgiving dinner truly a community event”
