Dear Friends of HEA,
I had an idea for an amazing fund raiser and public awareness educational night. When I was a child, my family, even when we weren’t eating, sat around the kitchen table talking. So for me, breaking bread is strongly connected to camaraderie and deeply meaningful conversation. It is the sole reason I got my master’s degree in group work.
My idea is that on June 14th, across the country and the world, in every time zone, HEA people are meeting in someone’s home or restaurant, sharing a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs family style. Each host would invite family, friends and even health professionals to their home or favorite restaurant, to share a meal for a great cause. Spaghetti / meatballs / salad / bread / dessert and byo/wine would cost the host a small advance to be recouped upon receipt of the donations.
We ask each participant to pay $25 to attend or $25 above the dinner price in a restaurant. During dessert you could begin a short discussion about hypospadias/epispadias. You might ask a question, “Did you know how common these conditions are?,” or “When did you first hear the word hypospadias or epispadias?,” or “What can we do so that no child ever grows up believing he/she alone is feeling such share, secrecy, and isolation?”
Please let me know ASAP if this dinner might work for you and how many people you anticipate inviting. Thank you for your continued support in keeping this organization available for people all over the world.
Executive Director, HEA
Sour Cream Cherry Pie
I buy # 7 medium thick pasta or medium shells.
3 large cans of tomato sauce, 1 large can of whole peeled tomatoes. I peel down to nothing one large carrot. Add meatballs and bring to boil. Reduce flame to low, cover and simmer for 2 hours. Careful not to bring to second boil or you’ll burn the bottom.
I combine ground beef, pork, and lamb, add finely chopped onions, breadcrumbs, tsp salt, pepper and oregano. Hand roll into 2 inch balls and in frying pan with thin coat of oil I brown these balls by gently rocking them in pan. Add to sauce gently.
4 large garlic cloves wrapped in aluminum foil in oil in over at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Mash in pan and add butter, spread across long French bread, heat in oven at 350 degrees for 10-12 min.
1 unbaked pie crust
2 c. pitted sour cherries
3/4 c. sugar
2 tbsp. flour
1 c. sour cream
1 egg, well beaten
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
