Happy Friday, friends! This last weekend of January will be quiet and cozy here. I do have a special meal planned for Sunday. Last spring I purchased THIS BOOK, Cooking with the Saints. It is a beautiful book filled with monthly recipes that correspond with different saints. Each month has a special meal celebrating a specific saint. January's saint is Saint Anthony the Abbot who was born in Egypt. (Which works out perfectly since Flynn and I are currently studying Ancient Egyptian Civilization!) I thought it would be nice to attempt to cook and serve each of these monthly meals this year. Because. If not now, when?
The menu for this month's saintly meal is Fattoush, a cucumber, tomato, and Feta cheese salad, Mahshy Koronb, Egyptian stuffed cabbage rolls, Koshari, Egyptian rice, lentils, and macaroni with spicy chili sauce, and Kunafa, a shredded phyllo cheese pastry. This is all new to me, but I think we can pull it together! I will be sure to let you know!
In other news of the week, Mocha joined Steve and me on our coffee date this week because
she literally cries and howls when I am gone I simply couldn't go without her. Peyton made her signature chocolate cake and it was amazing. And finally, Steve, Madison, Nicolas, and Flynn went sledding! They had a blast. And I was so happy. Happy they enjoyed it so. Happy my oldest loves to spend time with my youngest. And happy I was home, cozy and warm.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends.
Thanks for visiting!
