I think Johnny Mathis missed the mark...

(sung to the tune of "It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas")

It’s beginning to look a lot like Le-ent,
everywhere you go;
Take a look in the church kitchen; they’re cooking once again
With sausages and pancakes in a row.

It's beginning to look a lot like Le-ent,
Ashes on your head,
But the soberest sight to see is the cross that will be
Draped for forty days.

To give till it hurts and to pray without perks
Is the goal of Barney and Ben;
Denying self meat and good things to eat
Is the hope of Janice and Jen;
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for Vigil to start again.

It's beginning to look a lot like Le-ent
All up in the nave;
There’s the Litany, boy, it’s great! The priest gives you a clean slate,
but only at church, so show up and behave!

It's beginning to look a lot like Le-ent;
Penitence will start,
And the thing that will make you sing is the change that God will bring
Right within your heart!

bowl of creamy goodness

This is fettucine with creamy chicken sauce from the last issue of Everyday Food. I followed the recipe exactly (for once in my life!) except that the original called for pappardelle instead of fettucine. I live in the country which is a wonderful thing except when you want to purchase more uncommon pasta like pappardelle. Oh well.

The newest Everyday Food was in today's mail which was so exciting. It's great to come home to a new magazine or cook book in the mail. It's almost like getting a package. Almost. Getting a package in the mail is like Christmas. Yeah, that good.
