Kitchen Crew Song
‘Quintessentially Canadian Christmas’
Butter Tarts
Written by our cooks for our students
We are the kitchen crew; we’ll cook for you.

We are the kitchen crew, and serve you too.

We are the kitchen crew, yahoo!
The kitchen crew sure loves you!
We are the kitchen crew; we’ll cook up stew.

We are the kitchen crew, and whip up brew.

We are the kitchen crew, yahoo!
The kitchen crew sure loves you!
(This next verse is dedicated to Mrs. Baughman)
We are the food police, “Yes, you have to eat it”!
We are the food police, “No, it’s not going to kill you”!
We are the food police, “Why of course, you can have seconds”!
The kitchen crew sure loves you!
We are the kitchen crew; have a wonderful week.

We’ll be praying for you as God’s Will you seek.

We want to be a blessing to you; Yes, we do!
The kitchen crew sure loves you. . .

The kitchen crew sure loves you. . .

The kitchen crew sure loves you!
Use the following ingredients and follow directions to make 16
tarts, eh.

¼ cup soft butter
¼ cup packed brown sugar
1 pinch of salt
½ cup of corn syrup
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
½ cup of raisins
Make nice, simple, flaky pie (tart size) shells. Put them in a tart
shell or muffin pan. Soften the butter, which you can do by leaving
it on the stovetop overnight or in the oven with the bulb on. With
a wooden spoon, mix butter with brown sugar, salt, and corn
syrup. Stir well until the sugar is dissolved and the butter creamed.

Then add egg and vanilla. Mix well. To reconstitute raisins so
they’re not dry, soak in tepid water for about 30 minutes. Drain
thoroughly. Divide the mixture and raisins equally and dump
it into each tart. Bake at 400°F for about 15 minutes, until the
crust is golden and bubbly. If you want them firmer, leave in a bit
longer. Cool and top with real whipped cream. Link shared by Jeff

I Never Met a Door I Didn’t Like or Go Through!
I Always Found Joy on the Other Side.

The Lord has opened so many doors for me and I’m so very thankful that one of them was CAMP BIMI – WOW!!! What a
blessing! Working with Gerry and Diane – Chef Zuback – Jean Thompson – Laurene, Debra – Lori and so many helpers … I
can’t name them all. I’ve learned so much working in the kitchen and eating at the tables with students hearing how God worked
in their lives to get them to CAMP BIMI. Now I know so many people all over the world serving the Lord!
It has always been a blessing to hear great sermons from the many speakers who spoke at the night services. The many funny
things that Bro. Meyer did kept us all laughing.

I’m thankful for my 2002 Pontiac Sunfire car. My vehicle died and the CAMP BIMI students took a love offering that made
it possible for me to purchase my Pontiac! That car is STILL taking me to the nursing homes to visit friends and take some to
the doctors’ office and pharmacy all these years later.

I will ALWAYS thank God for opening the door for me to work at CAMP BIMI since 1995 to this current day. Precious
Memories … how they linger! Psalms 100 1 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. 2 Serve the Lord with glad-
ness: come before his presence with singing. 3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not
we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts
with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth
endureth to all generations.
