Menu Plan : Second Week of Advent

Tomorrow is the feast of St. Nicholas, so we are putting out our stockings tonight! It means that there is a break in our Advent fast, as well. We will have cookies and treats to eat, then back to our fast. We didn't really celebrate St. Barbara this year, like we normally do. Rich and I had somewhere we had to be, and we didn't think we'd spring that effort on the babysitter. I'm thinking of organizing something, maybe with our home school friends, to celebrate St. Barbara as a group. The feast of St. Barbara was when people in the Levant traditionally went door to door in costume and were given sweets and money. Kind of like trick or treating, but without the tricks. They dressed as ragamuffins to imitate her escape from her father by dressing as a beggar.

It turns out that Mariam doesn't like turkey. Her little tummy was quite upset with all the turkey I ate. Alexander was our only other child who was sensitive to turkey. This is really too bad, because I enjoy turkey so much. It will have to go to the back of my mind for a few months, however, until her stomach is better able to handle it in the milk.What is on your menu this week? If you want a recipe, ask and I will provide it as soon as I can. If there are any starred recipes, I will follow up separately with a weekly recipe round up on Saturday.

The rice pudding rocked. I am so glad to have a crockpot recipe. I was skeptical about the ration of 1 cup rice to 8 cups milked, but it works great... I only used 1/2 cup sugar, and it was plenty sweet for us...
That's good to know. I had already reduced the sugar from the original recipe I started with, but it's good to know we can reduce it further.

I miss you. And I miss not having a real winter. Real winter is crappy. I am hoping that we'll be able to make it out your way in the early spring.
Spring is too late! I know; I can't speak much since I haven't been in your direction...
At least we have Advent to get us through the season...
