Change of plans

on August 5, 2012

Today was not the normal Sunday that usually comes around every weekend. This Sunday held a slight change in plans for us. As we were walking into church, Pumpkin’s Godfamily came out and said that there would be no Mass today because our priest has pneumonia (please keep him in your prayers). There was only going to be a Eucharistic Service but since we are obligated to go to Mass every weekend when possible, both of our families headed 20 minutes down the road to go to Mass at a different parish. All 13 children and 4 adults piled into a long pew at the back of the church. The Polish priest has a thick accent and it is sometimes hard to understand what he is saying but that helps the little ones because they have to pay extra close attention if they want to know what he is saying! 🙂 We all loaded up in the car after Mass,shouted goodbye to our friends and headed off to the town’s extraordinary donut shop to get two dozen of everyone’s favorite donuts! (There were a lot fewer than that when we got home!) The rest of the day is devoted to finishing off the donuts, relaxing, watching movies and then enjoying a nice dinner of roasted chicken, Focaccia bread, veggies and our new favorite dessert, Cheese Danishes. Hope you all enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

‘Easy Cheese Danishes’



‘Fabulous Focaccia Bread’

1 1/2 cups warm water

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Rosemary

1 tsp Basil

1 tsp Salt

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

3 3/4 cup Bread Flour

2 1/2 tsp Yeast

Put ingredients in order in bread machine. Set to dough cycle. Take out the dough and using your hands, press it into a greased cookie sheet until it is the same size as the cookie sheet (like a rectangular pizza crust). Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with parmesan cheese, basil and garlic salt to taste. Cover and let rise for about a 1/2 hour and then bake at 400* for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
