Exciting Things Happening at The King's Kitchen

The King's Kitchen was given a very large anonymous gift in December, 2013.  After much prayer, and I truly mean MUCH prayer, and talking to our Chief Cook Sherry Kelly, it was decided it would be a blessing to add a convection oven to assist, not only The King's Kitchen in our weekly Tuesday preparation of meals to serve 50-55 shut-ins, but also for the church to use for Funeral Dinners, general Church dinners and various parties and activities that go on pretty constantly in our kitchen.

Next, was Mickey & Sherry researching various type and styles of convection ovens.  Once the choice for electric was arrived at then Mickey went to restaurant supply show rooms to view them, reading up on the various models, etc.  Once the Royal brand was determined to be the one of choice then Mickey presented it to the Pastor and Deacon Board for approval.  As always with improvements additional electric work had to be done, which meant another Board meeting and approval.  Next, locating and selecting the electrician to use, scheduling him and getting the work done. 

Finally this chrome beauty arrived.
 Mickey has been working hard with all the details and procedures involved purchasing this lovely Royal brand Electric Convection Oven with 5 tray/racks, timers, heat controls, fans, cooling control - all the bells and whistles.

 July 1st Mickey is showing Sherry the oven and explaining some of the features and information to her.
That is one of our Super Soupers, Gayle working at the exising  stove preparing the soups to be added that Tuesday to the regular meal.

 The next project was Mickey selecting a larger Mixer, twice the size of the existing one.  The Young At Heart Adult group of the church added a donation of $700 (which was about 50% of the cost). Same procedure of ordering, board approval and waiting for delivery.  This beauty arrived and was picked up by Mickey on Thursday.

Yes, The King's Kitchen and Coweta Assembly of God are now the proud owners of these two beautiful additions thanks to the generosity of a wonderful anonymous gift and The Young At Heart group.

.....With my 3 guys. This Saturday was spent with Mickey & I taking the pick-up and heading to Owasso for Mickey to help will getting the new bed.  Marc was still at work but we went earlier than the 4 o'clock we were told to be there so Mickey & Aric could get the preliminary work done.

1st - remove existing twin bed from the guest bedroom to the garage for Marc to give away.

2nd - dismantle existing queen size bed from Marc's bedroom and move it to the guest room and reassemble it there.

By this time, Marc had come in and he and Mickey went to pick-up the new bed.    

Just pictures of these three: Grandfather Mickey, Father Marc, Son & Grandson Aric putting together Marc's new queen box springs and mattress.

Seeing how it feels.

THEN we headed out to El Chico Mexican Restaurant to meet Aric's Great Grandmother Beryl and Great Aunt Kathy who live in Texarkana and Tulsa family friend Barb for dinner.  Kathy was in town showing her wonderful hand made glass jewelry at the 3 day Affair of the Heart craft show.  Delightful meal, time and visit with these 3 special ladies in our lives.  Didn't take a picture one----bummer.

I am so grateful for our busy, involved, never a dull moment life and the joy of my 3 guys!!!
