A couple of months ago, I wrote about cooking dinner at Hope Lodge with the Towson Football Team. It was a great night and everyone loved seeing the “handsome young men” cooking. The players had a great time and elected to sign up to cook another dinner at Hope Lodge. Last night, was round two!
The menu was breakfast for dinner and everyone was excited to cook. When the players arrived, they were ready to go. One young man even told me he was the egg guy. He grabbed the 7 1/2 dozen eggs and started making an enormous amount of scrambled eggs. I have to tell you, the highlight of my night was watching a few players measure out the pancake mix very carefully and then make 100’s of pancakes. They were commenting all night about whose pancakes were better. They were hilarious and at the same time got the job done.
Like in February, the players ate dinner with the patients and guests. There were great conversations happening around the room. Every player was courteous to each guest they met and talked with everyone. There was a lot of laughter happening around the room. I looked around and saw many smiling faces, it was a good night. Just like before, a couple of patients came up to afterwards to say how much they appreciated the players and Coach Ambrose and his wife coming out to help cook. A guest from New York even told me it was the highlight of his week.
Before leaving, Coach Ambrose asked, “So, when do you want us next?” Towson Football will without a doubt be back cooking at Hope Lodge in the near future and I couldn’t be happier. I love when they come out to help and so do the guests. The players received a round of applause as they left to go back to campus. I have no doubt in my mind that their next time cooking will be just as amazing as last night.
More cooking adventure to come…stay tuned!
