2. Onto things more actually about me. My confirmation name is Rose. Which of course is after St. Rose of Lima, but my immature 7th grade self also did it in homage to Rose, from the movie Titanic. A movie I wasn't allowed to see, and when I did see it, I didn't even like it! I especially didn't like Rose. Pretty shallow right? But St. Rose, who I do like, let me know she doesn't hold it against me. In Rome when I studied abroad, I visited the church of another patron saint of mine, the church where St. Catherine of Siena is buried. Turns out, the first side altar on the right is in honor of St. Rose of Lima. You may think it's coincidence, but I don't.

4. This one is inspired by Colleen at Martin Family Moments. Colleen, we didn't grow up with barbies either which led to some birthday party awkwardness. I still squirm when I remember the second grade birthday party of a friend. The party favors were clearly rigged: all the other girls got off-brand barbie dolls from the grab bag, and I got a box of sidewalk chalk. What are the chances? It was pretty pathetic how disappointed I was, and got even more so when I begged all the other girls to trade. All I could think was, "How did that mom know!"

And there you have it, things about me, book-ended by things that are mostly about food and a little bit about me. Maybe for the second half of Lent, I should resolve to post more things of substance on the old blog. And to carry on the fun, I'm tagging Mari, Martha, Kathleen (it's Sunday, you can still squeeze it in!), and Kate who did the Moxie Wife link up but not this here meme, so I'm saying it doesn't count, mostly it's part of my genius master plan to make her blog more.
Where are you getting the recipe for that lean cuisine from scratch? And I always LOVE your confirmation story.ReplyDelete
I think my reply disappeared yesterday. I used smitten kitchen's tangy spiced brisket recipe but added some chipotles in adobo (not a whole can) because I wanted it a little spicier. And then for the sweet potatoes I mashed them with some butter, sour cream and goat cheese, and they were delicious. I'd say it was a spot on adaptation that tasted even better. I'm glad the pope was elected yesterday because tonight we're just having leftovers.Delete
First off, regarding #2, coincidence doesn't exist. It's called Providence. Secondly, regarding #5, I speak that language too. In fact, if you want to woo me, speak potato and all things potato and I will love you forever.ReplyDelete
