So I guess the cat is now out of the bag...All week long (and a day or two before hand) I have been sharing recipes with you for an Asian menu that I created for #FreshTastyValentines. I made egg rolls one day before Fresh Tasty Valentines even started, we had a couple of them with our dinner that night but most went into the freezer for tonight's celebration. Then, when the event started I shared chicken puffs and shrimp balls that also went into the freezer and will be served with the egg rolls as appetizers tonight. The Vegetable Pork Wonton Soup was dinner one night for Frank and I, the rest was frozen for tonight's dinner. We will also be serving the Lemongrass Sorbet tonight. The entree featured last week, Yuk See Chau Mein was enjoyed the night it was prepared so our entree will be different. Of course, dessert will be a birthday cake!
Tomorrow Kirsten, Karen and I are going to Shipshewana in Michigan after which I will be picking up my Angel face as her Mama has a Super Bowl party to attend. We will be watching the baby channel here at our house LOL. I will be making a slow cooker meal to be ready when we get home.
The rest of the week is filled with Parish Council meetings, doctor appointments, choir practices and on Friday evening we are going out to dinner with friends. This Wednesday is already Ash Wednesday. Lent has started so we will be preparing the way for our Lord!! We do this in my church by fasting, abstaining and giving. It is a time for us to be much more as Christ to others. In our family this means going the extra mile for others who need help, eating only one large meal on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday with perhaps a protein drink for the other two meals and abstaining from meat on Ash Wednesday and the Fridays of Lent. I will also, personally spend more time in the quiet presence of the Lord during this season.
