In The Spotlight
Mission for Area People is the kind of organization that I personally picture when it comes to a community based and truly heartfelt. Located in the corner of a church in Muskegon Heights, right across from Muskegon Heights High School Mission for Area People focuses on those who might fall through the cracks of some other charities. Don't get me wrong, Muskegon is still by far and away the best when it comes to fulfilling need, but Mission for Area People comes up with things like some assistance with rent when the funding is available. Maybe a medical hand with some doctor bills or prescription costs. Maybe it's new clothes, the healthy food pantry, the list goes on and on. Serving with humble hearts and humble working environments sure makes Mission for Area People tug at the heartstrings. They are unique in the idea too, that they don't want teens to be forgotten when it comes to the holidays.
We're getting down to business in this episode of Cooking With L'Soul. We've featured Brian Sanders over the last few episodes who's taught himself his culinary skills while he was incarcerated and in the process, he would mail home the recipes to stay ahead of the game and not lose anything he was working on. His daughter faithfully kept building the cookbook while he was away. Having to utilize what was available behind bars, Brian had to learn how to make a pressure cooker out of a garbage bag. How to prepare rice in a microwave popcorn bag. How to get seasonings that would not only add flavor but be healthy enough to lower blood pressure with low sodium in it and more. This week, he's bringing in all of that talent to make the most delicious chicken wrap you'll ever eat.
Let's begin this week by saying this is an advanced workout. There's some lightweight dumbbells involved but so too is the Bosu Ball and it takes a lot of strength, balance and stamina to use one of these. If the Bosu Ball is a bit much for you, it's ok to use a solid surface as opposed to the ball.
Life comes with plenty of surprises. We all know this to be true. Some are absolutely unavoidable, but others can be better managed if we think in advance of what could happen and what steps could be taken to help avoid some of the unforeseen circumstances we all face. This week, it's Jodi, Jodi and Jodi, two of which are from Clock Timeless Pets and the discussion is all about planning for your pet.
The idea sprung a couple years ago that Muskegon had one of the most magnificent presentations on the planet to celebrate the holiday season and since it sold out year after year, how could we send a little holiday spirit around the world? Couple of meeting were held, some decisions were made and The Muskegon Channel was given the opportunity to try and pull off the largest project we had done to date.
