CNC Women’s Potluck Fellowship is This Friday (1.20.2012)

Isn’t it great that the women of CNC will gather for their monthly potluck on

What side dish will you bring?

Friday? It is at Deborah’s home from 6-8pm.

Deborah will provide the meatloaf. We bring all the side dishes. I will bring baked potatoes … or maybe a dessert.

Meatloaf is wonderful comfort food. It is supposed to be yucky weather the end of the week. Therefore, comfort food is just the needed thing on Friday night.

Being with CNC ladies is also comforting. And a lot of FUN.  There will be some laughter, too.

If you need directions get a hold of me or Deborah. See you there!

7 Traits of a Successful Tea Hostess

People with the gift of hospitality genuinely enjoy being around others. Your smile, good humour, and other-oriented manner make you a people magnet.

CNC’s women will soon attend their annual tea. Many details are organized in order for this event to be successful. One detail is recruiting hostesses for the tables.

We still need a couple of hostesses. The Tea is Saturday, February 11, 2-4 pm at CNC.

Wondering if you have what it takes to be part of this elite group of women? Read on to see if you, too, have the 7 traits that help make hostesses shine.

1. You have an awareness of visitors. It’s like you have a radar as to who is new to a group. There is no new person who is not a friend in the making for you. You tend to make a beeline in their direction because . . .

2. You have a desire to make people feel welcome. New social situations make most of us uncomfortable. You don’t want guests to feel this way, so you intervene. You are able to do this because . . .

3. You are attentive to the needs of visitors. You have the ability to give special treatment or say the right things so others feel more comfortable. You do what it takes to meet their need at that moment. Because you are good at networking them into social circles . . . 

4. You are good at helping people become part of a group. Everyone has a need to belong. Your hospitality skills help guests and the “group” to relate well to each other from the beginning. Because you are not pushy . . . 

5. You respect the boundaries of your guests. You are good at not being aggressive in your words and actions toward visitors. You gently lead and let them decide for themselves what actions they will then take. People respond well to you because . . .

6. You enjoy people. Your body language, words, and actions all point to your interest in others. You are sincere and have fun in your relationships. You make the encounter about the other person and not your own needs/wants. People are drawn to you because . . .

7.  You smile at people. This shows that you have a friendly, welcoming attitude. In addition, you are able to emphatically relate to others making them feel understood and liked.

I am thinking of several CNC women who embody these traits and haven’t signed up yet. Come on, ladies, you know who you are!

Contact Michelle White (Tea Coordinator) today to become a hostess. She has a letter of suggestions. If this is your first year as a hostess, don’t worry, Michelle will be there to guide you. In fact, since she, too, has the gift of hospitality, you will be taken care of well.

Your Turn . . . 

  • Have you signed up as a tea hostess yet? If not, what is holding you back?
  • Have you ever done this at CNC? If yes, what encouragement do you have for ladies who are thinking about being one?
  • Would you share a time a hostess helped you feel more comfortable at one of our teas?

CNC Women’s Party Features Traditional Christmas Food: 1-3 pm, Sat. Rudat Hall, Dec. 3rd

What are some favorite foods you have each Christmas time?

Perhaps it’s . . . 

My family, like yours, has ideas about what makes up Christmas Dinner. Baked orangey-yams with butter and a sprinkle of sea salt, mashed potatoes with gravy, and sliced ham are a few of my family’s savory favorites. On the sweeter side we like Green Stuff (similar to Orange Stuff but you use pistachio pudding and no jello), pumpkin pie, and fudge.

Bring one of your family’s dishes to share at our annual women’s CNC Christmas party. We will invite some of you to share a story that goes along with your traditional dish.

Our 2 hours together will fly by. In addition to eating and visiting with one another, we will play a traditional British party game, Pass the Parcel. And in keeping with tradition at our Christmas parties, we will have a devotional.

Not just a fun time. Women’s ministry hopes that all who attend will have fun with friends old and new, put aside worries, and leave with the peaceful truth that God is in control.

P.S. Bring a friend.

7 Reasons to Eat Soup

Need a reason or two to attend a CNC women’s soup potluck on Friday, October 7th?  Read on. And then call Debra to let her know you are attending.

1. Tribute. Haitians eat pumpkin soup January 1st to celebrate their Independence from France (1804). This soup is eaten early in the day “to celebrate unity and good fortune” (Missy Gauvin).

Missy relates that the French landowners had their slaves prepare pumpkin soup, but often forbade the slaves from eating it themselves. So upon the slaves successful uprising and overthrow of the French involvement in their country, the now freed slaves prepared and ate the pumpkin soup for themselves. The yearly tradition of eating of the soup continues as a tribute to the men and women who fought for and won Haitian independence.

2. Vegetables and Fruits. We’ve been told since childhood to eat our veggies and fruits because they are good for us. And they are. But sometimes it is hard to eat all that’s required for a healthy diet. Eating soup is a great way to get multiple types and 5-9 servings of vegetables and fruit into our diet. Try this quick and easy vegetable soup or Elise Gaube’s Ratatouille which is in our CNC cookbook. (You can buy a book from the church office.)

There are even great soup recipes which include fruit. There are many such recipes on the web, but here are two to get you started.  Peach Buttermilk soup is great for breakfast. This Watermelon Gazpacho also has tomatoes and celery.

3. Roughage. Beans provide roughage (as do veggies and fruits). “Meeting your roughage targets promotes the health of your intestine, combats high cholesterol and can curb appetite” (Ryan Devon). You can get packets of bean soup mix from the market. And of course the Internet has many, many bean soup recipes. One of my fave recipes is Sweet Potato Lentil Stew.

4. Diet Aide. Starting a meal with a healthy soup has been shown that the “eater” then consumes up to 20% less food. Soup fills you up some and so you are not as tempted to overeat. Bonus – you get extra servings of vegetables and fruits by including soup in your meal plan.

5. Body Coolant. I’ve read that taking a warm shower on a hot day is the best way to cool down your body. I’ve also heard that consuming hot and/or spicy food does the same. Make this Korean Summer Chicken Soup to test out the theory for yourself.

6. Overall Health. Consistently consuming enough fruits and veggies will positively affect your vision, heart, and blood pressure. It can also be a deterrent to getting cancer.

7. Community. A bunch of CNC women will be gathering on Friday, October 7, 2011 for a soup potluck. Go here for details. Contact me or Debra, if you have any questions. (If you don’t RSVP, come anyway.)

Your Turn  . . . What reason would you add to this list? Have a soup recipe to share?
