I love Me Some Marshmello Peep's









cant you just eat and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat... and eat...
I myself think they only taste good during the Easter season... and they must be fresh and soft...
"S'mores"
wonder how they would be if you swap out the marshmallow and replaced it with a Peep???
I love the traditional S'mores but i like to spice it up with the addition of a little peanut butter... yum yum...



A very busy week from palm Sunday to Easter... I participate in the Easter Triduum or holy week... beginning with the Chrism Mass on Monday and all the masses thru Easter... starting with the annual Chrism Mass, celebrated at St. Patrick Cathedral in Harrisburg on Monday of Holy Week, During the Chrism Mass, the bishop blesses the oils and Chrism that will be used in the celebration of the sacraments throughout the coming year. The Oil of Catechumens is used to anoint those preparing for baptism; the Oil of the Sick is used in the anointing of the sick; and the Sacred Chrism is used in the baptism of children, the Sacrament of Confirmation, the ordination of priests and bishops, and the dedication of altars. the next mass was on Thursday night it is the mass of our lord's supper...then on to good Friday and the grand silence where you don't speak from 1200 to 300 (it's not to hard to do because your in church for most of that time)... a very sad and somber day... then holy Saturday and the Great Vigil of Easter... what a wonderful wonderful weekend...

: here is some great information all about holy week just click this link :

Monday Night Pasta

Monday Night Supper
lets start with dinner... I tried a new home made pasta... love making my own pasta... very simple and easy to do... you may think it's a lot of work but it's a lot of fun and easy... for the money it's well Worth it and the raw pasta freezes well...
Ingredient's:
4 cups of flour and a 1/2 cup for the board (for dusting)
2 cups of Puree pumpkin or squash you can get in the frozen section by the spinage
1 table spoon sea salt
2 eggs
1 to 3 garlic cloves crushed in a garlic press
12 pepper corn's crushed
1 table spoon olive oil

You can do this by hand, but if you have a kitchen aid you are home free and you can do the dishes while the pasta is mixing ...I own the Kitchen Aid Professional 5qt 450 Watt 10 Speed Stand Mixer...say hello to Sister Bertheina

OK here comes the hard part.. throw all ingredients in the mixing bowl with the paddle attachment and speed on 2 to 3 mix for about 5 minutes... then switch to the dough hook... and mix for another 2 to 3 minutes... it should be the consistency of play dough...
you can use a pasta machine or roll it out to the desired thickness... cook about 2 to 3 minutes and add your favorite gravy / sauce there you have it home made pasta in a flash...

yummy yummy I think the pumpkin or squash made it more silky very delicate not like a heavy thick pasta...
next time I make pasta I will remember to document all the steps and share with all of my friends...

OK turn the TV off..... and don't forget to give thanks

St. Patrick's Prayer
This day I call to me:

God's strength to direct me,

God's power to sustain me,

God's wisdom to guide me,

God's vision to light me,

God's ear to my hearing,

God's word to my speaking,

God's hand to uphold me,

God's pathway before me,

God's shield to protect me,

God's legions to save me.
