Ascension Thursday and Beautiful Traditions

Some folks think that today should mark the end of the Easter Season. Tradition tells us that today, forty days after the Resurection, Christ ascended into heaven, once again to take His place at the right hand of the Father. Easter is over, right?

Idaho and the Blue-Plate Special

Hello there, and welcome to the 17th day of May. If you’ve been with me for a while, then you might remember that May 17th is National Idaho Day. Idaho – home of the Russet Potatoes, stanch Republicans and even the focal point of secession.

National Coquilles Saint Jacques – Sort of

Hello Neighbor. Did you know that today is National Be a Good Neighbor Day? We should all be good neighbors, or at the very least try to be good neighbors. Sometimes that’s easier said than done. Today is also National Mimosa Day and Barbecue Day. Those play rather nicely into Be a Good Neighbor, don’t you think?

Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes

Hello World! Or at least those of you who have dropped by today. Here it is, a beautiful Monday, and we’re half-way through May. That can’t be right . . . Half way through May!

Rediscovering Mother’s Day Celebrations

This year Mother’s Day is going to be a bit different. More on that later in the month, I promise. Yet I did not want to miss the opportunity to share some amazing Mother’s Day Recipes from the past. Hope you enjoy.

Our Lady of Fatima and Family Suppers

Today Catholics around the world acknowledge the Feast Day of Our Lady of Fatima. Our Lady is in reference to Our Blessed Mother, Mary. She is the mother to all, the New Eve in the New Covenant between humankind and our creator.

Eat What You Want Day

Today is National Eat What You Want Day. It’s a free pass to indulge. So what’s up in my kitchen? A Roast Dinner? Where are the cupcakes? Roast dinners are a lot harder to come by than you think.

Washington State and the Tastes of Mexico

What can I say except “Lucy, you got some ‘splaining to do.” National Washington State Day and Mexican Food? Really? Yes, really.

Awesome Ro-Tel Chicken Enchiladas

All I can say is it’s a good thing today is Tuesday. It’s also Butterscotch Brownie Day. Great for me, not so much for Hubby who is not a fan of Butterscotch. I like to suck on Butterscotch Candies and drizzle butterscotch over ice cream. A Butterscotch Brownie deserved it’s own special day.

A Creamy Scalloped Potato, Ham and Pea Casserole

Today is National Have a Coke Day. I actually had to look that one up – you see, when I was a girl if someone said “Have a Coke” they didn’t necessarily mean Coca-Cola so much as a soft drink. There was 7-Up and Coke – the generic name brads for clear and colored sodas. So for the record, National Have a Coke Day is in reference to the All-American beverage, Coca-Cola.

Hello Three-Meat Mushroom Omelette

Good morning and welcome to the 5th Sunday of the Easter Season 2023. Has the Lord blessed you today? If you are awake, the answer is yes. If you have a roof over your head, someone who loves you for you and can put food on the table – you have been quadruple blessed.

Before You Play Outside

Today is National Play Outside Day. It seems that whoever it is (those mysterious unknown powers that be) who decide these things have designated the first Saturday of every month National Play Outside Day. I find that amazing. Growing up, we would have needed a National Stay Inside Day since every day was a day to play outside.

Friday Night Cinco de Mayo Feast

Welcome to the 5th day of May – better known as Cinco de Mayo. It is a celebration of Mexican Pride, Mexican Culture and Mexican Cuisine. You would think it were their 4th of July, but it isn’t. As a matter of fact, Cinco de Mayo isn’t even a major holiday in Mexico.

The First Thursday in May

It’s been a while since I’ve had a good rant. I know I’ve been sharing my faith daily in both little ways (the passages at the end of each post – most are part of our daily readings), and in big ways, acknowledge days of great religious significance. For me personally, today’s recognition as National Day of Prayer really doesn’t affect me. Every day is a day of prayer.
