***NEW*** Donate a Dinner to the Harris Family!!!

Sooo many of you have offered to make dinner but didn't know when would be good for the family or if they may already have dinner for a particular night. WELL, it took me a little while, but I finally have an interactive calendar on the blogspot (Thank you to my husband, Kyle for helping with this).

For those of you who may be interested in signing up to donate a dinner to the Harris Family, I need to tell you that they prefer dishes with little to no celery/onions and (as much as we have all tried to tell him he's missing out) - Skip eats NO CHEESE of any kind. I am certain that the family is happy to have dinner of any kind brought to them, but I want to make sure they are able to eat these dinners! :)

Here's what you do:

Located at the top of the light gray section in the right margin is a link to "View the Dinner Calendar". Clicking on this will take you to the interactive dinner calendar.
1) click on any available date
2) select "add an event" on the bottom of the page
3) type WHAT you will be bringing for dinner as the TITLE, then type in your name and contact number in the description. Using this method, everyone can see what has already been planned and that way they won't wind up with lasagna Monday-Friday!
4) ****right below the description is the date/time that you will be bringing dinner. Even though you click on your intended date, this particular field will automatically show the current day's date, so be sure to change it to the date you intend to bring dinner.****

In order to keep spam at bay, your event will not be visible on the calendar until I am able to approve it. In the event of a conflict I will contact you, so please remember to add your contact number.

Thanks to all who have expressed interest in donating dinner(s) to the Harris Family and for those who have already brought a meal! I hope this calendar makes it easy for everyone to participate. Let me know if you have any questions!
