If you want to try a different flavour to your mince, go Lebanese! Tonight I used cinnamon, nutmeg, cumin, lemon juice, spinach and pine nuts, and it's a refreshing variation on Italian/Mexican/Indian flavourings of mince. I heard Christy and her cousin high-fiving one another the other day for being 'one eighth camel' - my brother was making fatayer pies for dinner, and that's what we're going to have again tonight. The filling is as above.

On other fronts, the Bish has backed the Codfish and decided an eight-year old girl can't choose to become a Catholic. The family is gutted, and I think it'll reflect badly on how people regard the leader of our parish for a while. My friends who are running the programme this year (I just teach it, they run it) are deeply upset but have had to give up the fight. We still have to celebrate First Reconciliation in a week and a half, but this girl won't be permitted to be included. Sad, huh. I emailed the codfish last night about some administrative matters and I added this: p.s. I heard on the grapevine that you have said no to baptising the child in our parish who wants to be baptised. Did you and the Bishop really truly, decide between the two of you that a child who wants to be a Catholic can't be one? Honestly? In our own parish??? What happened to evangelisation? Isn't that what we are supposed to do? What really is your problem? Really? I sincerely want to know. We've been keen to offer solutions, we've offered our support, we have reiterated the power of St A's School and you do not appear, between the two of you, to be coming to the party. So why are you really so against a child becoming a Catholic? It's easy to hide behind legal arguments, but we are looking for a sensible solution in what has always been a Christian community.
That was a couple of days ago... he hasn't answered - yet. OMG... can't wait until Sunday's Mass... not. I feel like we're carrying on the Jesus legacy that JCjnr gave us, and we've been hobnailed by a Scribe. A Sadducee, perhaps. He is a lawyer after all.

I think I'll be keeping my head down and thinking about my writing...

I've sent her off to bed!

Ground beef, that versatile stuff that people cook so badly! But we can make wonderful things with it. You just have to choose the right flavourings and the right length of cooking!

It's raining here incredibly hard. I can't believe it. I keep standing out on the front porch to stare at the power of the water. I had to put gumboots on to feed the rabbit and guinea pig!

I get my ground beef, and most of my meat from the Amish at the farmer's market. What a difference in taste and quality from the stuff they sell at the grocery stores. I like the fact that it has no growth chemicals.

OMG I'd LOVE to go to an Amish market. One day... I'll appear on your doorstep and make you take me *g* - if I ever get to set foot in America beyond LAX
