MESH Report 6/28/22.
For The Carol Starr MESH Cafe’s last meal of the current year, co-chairs Aileen Grossberg and Lynne Kurzweil along with chief packer and dishwasher Susan Rosenblatt were joined by our newest volunteer, Rabbi Greenstein who spent an hour or so away from his office to help prepare the evening’s meal. Among his many other talents, Rabbi Greenstein is a very capable chopper. Continue reading
The MESH team of Grossberg, Kurzweil and Rosenblatt did it again. With no one signed up to create this week’s MESH meal, coordinators Aileen Grossberg and Lynne Kurzweil stepped up with the help of ever reliable Susan Rosenblatt.
Thanks to some delicious leftovers from the Brooks family Shabbat dinner and rugelach from Marc Grossberg’s birthday celebration, the takeaway bags were full to bursting. Continue reading
Our most faithful volunteer, Susan Rosenblatt, braved Tuesday’s winds on her walk to Shomrei and our head cook, Stuart Greene, spent his day off preparing a hearty meal of turkey chlli with beans, rice and sautéed kale.
Aileen Grossberg provided the starter of hummus with pita crackers and carrots as well as a dessert pastry.
Stuart rounded out the meal with rolls and clementines.
On Tuesday, we had the awesome threesome team of Chef Fern Heinig and Packers Alex Kent and Susan Rosenblatt. Fern prepared her classic Baked Salmon with a lemon/dill sauce, sliced lemons, Green Beans, Mediterranean CousCous Salad, Tangerines, Rolls, Black and White Cookies, Breakfast Bar and, of course, a water bottle. The meal is served at room temp which makes it easy for the Cook to prepare in advance and for the Packers to assemble without heating up.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of the Delany family who celebrated Gabriel’s bar mitzvah this past weekend, our MESH guests were treated to an outstanding meal left from the event, and the cook (that would be yours truly) simply had to lead a very experienced packing team of Sarita Eisenberg and Susan Rosenblatt.
