  • Don’t forget what’s in the root cellar

    Perhaps this can be a reminder of the payoff of “putting up” the garden in spring, summer and fall: We have extended our homegrown eating pleasure into the winter months with some basic preservation methods.  
    If you froze, dried, canned or otherwise preserved fresh fruits and vegetables in 2016, do not forget about them (or horde them for some unreasonable time.)
    First, open the freezer and assess what’s there: blanched Romano beans with some ice crystals forming inside the freezer bag?  Plan a stew for dinner.

  • St. Edward’s Knights of Columbus
  • Through Jesus, death is undone

    I remember it like it was yesterday. I was 10 years old. I came home from school. My dad was home. Weird. He followed me into my bedroom sat on the bed and asked me to sit beside him. He then told me that my grandfather, his dad, had died of a massive heart attack.
    We had just spent a week with him and Grandma at Thanksgiving. I had gone hunting with him that week. But now he was gone. I would never see him again. I was devastated by this, my first experience with death.
