St. Therese's feast day at Walter's Pumpkin Patch and pastry roses.
I found a fun recipe on Catholic Cuisine for St. Therese's feast day today. It required concentration- since I pulled branches all last night I was exhausted, but I got them done after the kids went to bed. We used apples from my parents. And although we were not gathered specifically today to celebrate a Doctor of the Church's feast day, we were with our Catholic homeschool group and I took along the special treat.
step one- acquire lots of free apples
Best line I heard all day was Tony saying, "It would probably be a mortal sin not to eat those roses on St. Therese's feast day. I wouldn't want to get into any sort of sin, I better have a few." LOL!
I took them to share with our friends at the pumpkin patch. It turned into a beautiful day- it was predicted that there would be strong storms and tornadic activity.
