Menu Plan: March 22 - 28 (Laetare Sunday and 5th Week of Lent)

We are not quite on lockdown here, not even shelter in place, but it's pretty quiet. All church has been cancelled. We were able to have our Evening Prayer last week, but not so this week. This means that the rather large quantity of corned beef I bought to feed our fellow parishioners is going to be quite an abundance for our family. We can freeze any leftovers, though.

So, we are watching liturgy from Saint Michael's. We are so blessed because Rich is a lay Eucharistic minister, and because of our particular situation living away from a parish of our own, we have been provided with reserved Sacrament for our family and are able to have Jesus in the Eucharist in our home at all times.

Our friends' church, Our Lady Star of the Sea is also broadcasting their masses. The Diocese of Cascadia Anglican Church is broadcasting, as are many Orthodox churches including our friends' church. If you don't have a church broadcast, perhaps this will help you worship and focus on the Lord and how you can serve His people during this time.

Since parties have all been cancelled at this time, we are going to be celebrating Elijah's birthday this week, as we celebrated Amira's a couple weeks ago, mostly here at home. Amira and Jerome had cakes in the freezer from their cake decorating class and so one will be eaten at lunch for Laetare Sunday (the Church's Mother's Day) and the other will be served with dinner for Elijah's birthday.

What is on your menu this week? I hope these breakfast and dinner ideas help you make plans, too. 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.
