Menu Plan: Bright Week

Christ is Risen! The Lord is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!

We broke the fast after the vigil with ma'amoul, which is a traditional date filled cookie made in the Arab world. This one is shaped like a crown of thorns and is traditional for the Paschal season. We also ate chocolate. Lots of it. The Paschal feast is an octave, which means the actual holiday is eight days long. Next Sunday will be the last day. There is no fasting during this octave, not even on Wednesday or Friday. We will try our best to feast heartily. The Paschal season extends until Pentecost, and is 50 days.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.
