I was fortunate enough to receive this email from one of our own long-tenured athlete Sandi Pants:

Hi,

Going back to old times with a recipe exchange!  As the world is social distancing right now, many of us are experimenting in our kitchens to help pass the time.  So you have been invited to be a part of a Quarantine Cooking recipe exchange!  Yay!

Please send a recipe to the person whose name is in position #1 (even if you don’t know them) and it should be something quick, easy and without rare ingredients.  Actually, the best one is the one you know in your head and can type right now.  Don’t agonize over it… It is the recipe you make when you are short on time.

After you’ve sent your recipe to the person in position #1 below (and only to that person), copy this email into a new email, move my name to the top and put your name in position #2.  Only my and your name should show when you send your email. Send to 20 friends via BCC.

If you cannot do this within 5 days, let me know so it will be fair to those participating.  You should receive 36 recipes.  It’s fun to see where they come from!  Seldom does anyone drop out because we all need new ideas.  The turnaround is fast, as there are only 2 names on the list and you only have to do this once.

In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy, and STAY HOME.

Happy QuarantineCooking!

Hopefully it’ll get to YOU soon, but since I’m now part of that chain I need people to send this to so COMMENT down below and I’ll get you added to my recipe list!
