Last Friday, a group of coworkers and I headed down to the Ronald McDonald House in Durham, N.C. I’m a big fan of the Ronald McDonald House charities.
If you didn’t know, Ronald McDonald Houses provide homes away from home for families with seriously-ill children – families that need to travel more than 50 miles to get the care that the child needs to survive. They charge only $15-2o per night for families to stay (but they will work with families who cannot afford it), and everything is provided – there’s a communal kitchen where volunteers bake food (or the family can bring their own and cook it), computers & internet, laundry facilities are on-site, and so on.
This is the second year we’ve volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House, and like last year, we baked goodies for the family – brownies, muffins, cookies, etc. We’re not the only group who came in that day – lots of schools and organizations volunteer to provide a little bit of home to the families. I mean, who wouldn’t want to come home to the smell of fresh-baked cookies?
My boss’s banana bread muffins were amazing – and for the low low price of $0.00, you can take this delicious recipe home!
I know I didn’t make it, but it’s too yummy not to share!
