chicken and potatoes and corn

AN ANGEL AMONG US:

Armani Crews, who turned 6 earlier this month, had been begging her parents for “a few months” to feed homeless people in her community, but her parents thought “she was joking,” her mother, Artesha Crews, told ABC News.

“I said, ‘OK, we’ll make some sandwiches,’ to which Armani said, 'No. I want the same thing we’d have at my birthday party,’” her mother recalled.

Even when her father, Antoine, informed her that if she wanted to go through with this, she wouldn’t get a birthday gift, the girl, whose birthday was March 5, persisted.

So the Chicago family spent about $300 buying food to deliver to homeless people in the city’s East Garfield Park neighborhood. They purchased chicken, fish, spaghetti, corn, green beans, mashed potatoes, rolls, cake, cookies, fruit and water.

After Armani mentioned her plan at the family’s local church, congregation members donated other items to create care packages for the homeless. Each care package included a toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, hand sanitizer and a snack, such as a granola bar.

Armani’s birthday party was a success, with the family feeding more than 125 people who gathered.
In a statement, the kindergarten student told ABC News, “It was nice to be nice.”

Her mother added, “She was excited. She was happy. Everybody was being fed. …One of the gentleman said he hadn’t had a hot meal in a long time.”

Now the 6-year-old wants to host another community meal for the homeless. Her mother said the family plans to return to the park “within the next couple of weeks.”

Zimbits Wedding

Bitty would totally want a Southern Charm™ wedding. He picks the little white chapel up on the hill that his moomaw has been attending every sunday for the past 84 years. He buys mason jars and puts fairy lights in them to hang on the pews up the aisle. The flower girl and ring bearer would be Bitty’s cousin and Jack’s cousin who are too precious in their Sunday Best. Bitty’s moomaw made his wedding cake: A three tiered vanilla almond cake with coconut flavored icing. Alicia and Suzanne make all the food which include: macaroni and cheese, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, cole slaw, BBQ meatballs, carrots, peas, and grilled corn on the cob all served with Syrupy Sweet Iced Tea. They invite all their close friends and relatives in this 83 occupancy chapel.

The service is simple and elegant. Sunflowers decorate the tops of pews, reflecting the fairy lights in the mason jars and the sunset pouring in through the stained glass, decorating the place with oranges, reds, and blues. Jack stands up at the altar waiting nervously but patiently for the service to start. The preacher stands behind a table with three candles on it. The flower girl drops multicolored daisies on the aisle and then Canon in D Major plays as Bitty appears at the back of the church. Bitty wears a white suit and holds a bouquet put together by himself. They are lilies. Bitty is already crying and Jack is barely holding it together. He’s so happy. They are both so happy.

When Bitty makes it up the aisle, Jack takes his hands and gives them little kisses. The preacher then goes into the ceremony, but Bitty and Jack can’t take their eyes off each other. When they perform the Unity Candle Ceremony, Jack is spilling wax everywhere trying to keep his hands steady because he is just so happy that he is going to be with Bitty for the rest of his life. When Bitty and Jack finally kiss, the entire crowd erupts with cheers, claps, and tears. Shitty ran out of tissues and had to use Lardo’s handkerchief. Ransom and Holster just sit there tears rolling down their faces making no sound at all. The frogs are hollering and making so much noise.

Their first dance is to Halo by Beyoncé even though it’s not southern. But they have an outdoor reception on the church premises. The little cousins are all playing in the cemetery ruining their nice clothes and moomaw is just fascinated with Chowder who ends up eating his weight in food. Bitty and Jack barely get any time to eat because they are thanking everyone for coming and worried about management and dancing with Alicia and Suzanne. Bad Bob dances with Lardo. Nursey and Dex dance. Suzanne makes certain that the Chicken Dance is done. 

When the wedding is over, Jack goes to pull up the white convertible with soup cans tied to the bumper and toilet paper on the back seat with “JUST MARRIED” written in red washable paint on the trunk. Jack carries Bitty to the car and they go on their honeymoon to a cabin by a lake. Jack teaches Bitty to fish. They both unwind in a bathtub with rose petals and candles every night before going to bed.

Bitty and Jack have the most Southern Charm wedding possible and it makes me have so many feelings ;-;

Bag of Tricks

@averitableangel

When they got back to Number Twelve, Ron headed for the kitchen first. If they were going to be locking themselves in his bedroom with this bag of excellent that they’d just purchased, then they were probably going to need a decent amount of food first. 

He opened the fridge and got out a bunch of Sunday dinner leftovers that he’d brought back from his mum’s house that week. “Tell me what you’d like and I’ll heat it up for you,” he shrugged, getting plates out of the cupboard. “The warming charm only takes a few minutes, so we can just do all of it, if you’d like.”

The containers were full of roast chicken, mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, sweet corn, and peas. Plus, he had grabbed a loaf of bread from the counter on his way by. His mother really did make the best bread.
