Wishing
Our Kitchen Wish List
* Do you have an unused refrigerator? Did you recently purchase a new fridge and have an old one taking up space? If so - we have a family who is in need. Please see Fr. George or Psa Marian for more information.
 
 If you've been to St. Dimitrie, you've enjoyed the delicious food that comes out of our very own kitchen. From pitas to stuffed cabbage, nut rolls to sweet bread, it doesn't happen by magic! The making of our homemade food requires many hands, a multitude of ingredients, and lots of shopping--and it happens all year round.
 
Next time you're shopping, please consider buying something from our "wish list". If something is on sale, buy more than one! If everyone brings in something occasionally, it lightens the load in more ways than you can imagine!
 
And as you've heard, many hands make light work. We could use your help, especially in the weeks and days leading up to our festivals and when we host events in the hall. Please check the website for our kitchen calendar to see what's happening when. Even an hour or two is a tremendous help and no experience is required! If you'd like to help before or after coffee hour, extra hands are always appreciated.

•  Butter

•  Walnuts

•  Granulated Sugar
