What are you most looking forward too?

What foods are you all most looking forward too once the fast is over?  I can't wait to sink my teeth into a nice juicy extra rare steak.

Kielbasi, the roasted lamb on a spit we make every year, and the Lamb Korma that my roomates and I will bring to Pascha.  Also, the keg of homebrew we're taking.  :)

I hear you.  A local restraunt is going to be having a sale on Cheeseburgers real cheap during Bright Week.  It's like its meant to be.

Personally, I will be going to the Golden Corral on Sunday or Monday night for steak, ribs, fried chicken, etc.   Now, if they just had BBQ pork sandwiches, I'd have everything I have a craving for!

I'm getting a butcher here to make me special lamb-chops, 1.5 inches thick. These are going to be stuffed with Gorgonzola cheese and then grilled.

YUM.

Not hearing "That was...interesting tasting" or "I did taste it" from my kids.

My daughter (now eight years old) chose amoung other things to fast from Jello and M&M's.  She's looking forward to Easter.... but I don't think those 2 things together would work....the colours might melt in the jello and they'd probably sink to the bottom too.  Wow, psychadelic Jello.

I hate Holy Saturday afternoon, my house smells so good with the Pascha bread in the oven and the meats being cooked for the Pascha Basket. I made a trip to my local cheese shop and they offer you to taste everything and to have to say no to them - ohh the misery woa is me!

Columba/Gary, I just realized who you are!   :)  Why don't you bring some of that sausage to St. Barbara's tonight--it sounds delicious.  See you there!

I just read some of the items in your blog, including about your love for gardening; you describe that love so articulately, it made me want to pick up a spade and give it a try.

Have you read Inheriting Paradise: Meditations on Gardening by the Armenian Orthodox philosopher, Vigen Guroian?  I think you'd like it very much.

Christ is risen!

Ambrose/Marvin,

Thanks for the tip on the book.  I've got it ordered and looking forward to reading it.

From the Author
"I am a theologian and a college professor. I like being both. But what I really love to do - what I get exquisite pleasure from doing - is to garden. I think that gardening is nearer to godliness than theology."  Vigen Guroian
"The way of God is a daily cross.  No one has ascended into heaven through an easy life."  St. Isaac of Syria
