Month of feasting coming up!
Okay mommy friends, if you have been wanting an excuse to feast and party with the Saints in your home..this is it. I am going to once again try and squeeze them all in for our kids. It was totally worth the effort last year. We had a blast planning and making and eating all the goodies. Here's some ideas to help you for the month of October. We kick ours off tomorrow with the Feast of the Archangels and St. Michael (*Knox's patron Saint). The links are all there hopefully.
Archangels September 29th (St. Michael, Raphael and Gabriel)
St. Jerome September 30th
free audio book about Wupsy the Guardian Angel- towards bottom of the list
St. Faustina October 5th
Divine Mercy Sunday and St. Faustina
October 7th Our Lady of the Rosary- Battle of Lepanto on Holy Heroes Joyful Mystery CD, say a family Rosary
Oct. 22nd St. Pope John Paul II
Polish tea party and this soo soo delicious root soup.
My homemade crockpot "Polish sausage soup"
6 potatoes, cut in cubes, or throw in a bag of mini red potatoes whole
⁄cup onion, chopped
chopped angel hair cabbage
3 or 4 celery rib, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped or bag of mini carrots
14 oz low sodium chicken broth
1 can evaporated milk or about a cup of regular milk (I haven't tried skim)
1 bag 8 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
I skip salt and pepper
1 package of smoked pre-cooked Polish sausage- sliced thin.
Throw everything into your crockpot except the milk and cheese- stew on high for 4-5 hours and low for 6-8 hours. Then in the last 20 mins add your milk and cheese. When the potatoes are soft your soup is done.
