Lady Lent Is Back!

Yes!  It's that time again!  Time to rededicate our lives to Christ and commit ourselves to the spiritual struggles and cares that will prepare us for the Kingdom of Heaven.  It's time for Great and Holy Lent to begin. 
Here is a picture of Lady Lent, Kyria Sarakosti.  She has a foot for every week of lent.  A countdown calendar from long ago.  Print this image or draw your own and cross or cut off her feet as the weeks pass.   I personally don't care for the image of chopping off her feet, poor thing.  :) 

We pray you have a successful Lenten Journey this year.  May our Lord give you the strength you need to endure and complete the fast triumphant.

go to the Tab at the top of this page for fasting recipes.

A Treat for Cheesefare, Brie in a pastry

We found a great way to celebrate Cheesefare Sunday. 
Heat oven to 350.

You need

Slice off the top of the brie. 

Scoop two tablespoons of the delicious Nicoletta's marmalade or jam.  over four crescent triangles.  Pinch the edges of the triangles to seal the dough.  

Place the brie, sliced side down, on the jam.

Add two more tablespoons of jam on the bottom.

Fold edges over and pinch edges.

Brush egg wash over the brie and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool for a few minutes and enjoy!

Nicoletta's marmalade or jam.   wants to give back... they have teamed up with Progress Place, a shelter in Silver Spring, MD and are hoping to host an event to transform the dining area of Progress Place into a 5-Star restaurant; table linens, flatware, decorations, waiters, a Maitre d', music and, most importantly, a chef willing to donate their time in preparing a 3 or 4 course meal.

If you'd like to help, go to
GoFundMe to raise money to cover the expenses associated with an event like this.
