Menu Plan: First Week of Advent
The maple pies we made were definitely winners, I will keep them on our Thanksgiving pie list for next year. How was your Thanksgiving? We only put about two pieces of pie in the freezer for Advent and the Saint Andrew's fast. Out of 15 pies.
We begin the fast this week, but we are not as strict as some people. I do try to keep our Wednesdays and Fridays stricter (with a few exceptions), but more often we eat fish or dairy or egg during this fast. It will be easier to keep the fast this year, since there are no office parties/business parties happening. We will be hanging our stockings on Saturday for Saint Nicholas Day on Sunday. Do you do anything for Saint Nicholas?
This is a time of preparation, both for our Savior's Nativity and Incarnation, and for His coming again. Rich spoke a little about how we should prepare the highway for Him, both for ourselves and to make it easier for others to reach Him. We discussed how we should wait in hope. I wish you a holy Advent, and a heart filled with hope, that is prepared for the Lord.
