I proclaimed the first reading (from Proverbs) at my godchild’s wedding on Saturday. It was a beautiful wedding and I was honored to have a small part in it. (And the church was lovely, but So.Much.Marble.So.Many.Echoes.) Congratulations to my godchild Pam and her new husband Pat!
I dredged up some courage and asked a few folks to contribute Meatless Friday recipes to CatholicMom.com. New contributor Gina Felton was the first to share a recipe. Then both Lisa Hendey AND Sarah Reinhard got cooking. And the other day, Father Daren mentioned his favorite tuna recipe, and gave me permission to share that one as well. We’ve got some good cooking coming up every Friday this summer! 3 cheers for stepping out of my comfort zone and speaking up. It’s not something I often do, but when I do manage it, the results are usually good ones.
I taught Little Brother how to cook a dinner all by himself! I converted Big Brother’s Chicken Adobo into a slow-cooker recipe for a project I’m working on with author Cynthia Toney. Little Brother made a stove-free recipe, thanks to the slow cooker and the rice cooker–and he can cook this dinner without the help of adults.
