Catholic Cuisine--recipes (and some art)

I've got a new Catholic Cuisine widget on my sidebar, under the Lenten Resources button. Check it out for some great recipes based on the liturgical seasons.

I love the idea of using food, something we all need every day, to express our heritage, faith and love. Our faith should be something that surrounds us and is a part of all we do.

The picture above, by the way, is a painting by Tajalf Sparnaay, a Dutch artist who specializes in hyper-realism.  This painting is entitled "Stew" and reminds me of the corned beef many of us eat on St. Patrick's Day. It is much larger than life and he leaves no detail unpainted.

That painting is amazing. I noticed you haven't posted your usual art posts lately. Have you given it up?

I've been so caught up in reading on the HHS mandate, I haven't taken the time to search for any good paintings. I've got to get back to it.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
