Here is an update from the cookbook committee! Please remember to turn in your recipes for our Parish cookbook by Jan. 31st! We still need recipes for each category. If you need help in writing your recipe onto a form, please contact one of our committee members and we would be happy to help you. I have included all of our names and numbers at the end of the e-mail. You may always just make a copy of the recipe too and be sure to put your name and number on it and we can copy it onto a form for you. Someone suggested that it would be nice if each parishioner might turn in a recipe from each category by way of an entire meal–cocktails, appetizers, salad, entree, vegetable, side dish, and dessert. What a great cookbook this would be if each of us did that one time for a Polish meal, a gluten free meal, and an everyday cooking meal! Keep this suggestion in mind when choosing recipes. It would be nice to include recipes from our famous Chicken dinner menu too–if any of you have them and could submit them, that would be great! And if your children have recipes, please include those as well. Think of creative recipes too such as, the recipe for a happy home, a good Catholic, a Nun, a Priest, a Mother, a Father, and so on…We will also be asking our dear Fr. Libby for a recipe or two, our dear Bishop for a suggestion of his favorite recipe, as well as that of our Holy Father. Together, we can make this a wonderful cookbook that is sought after by many and Shine Forth to the entire community and beyond in our cooking talents as well as many others–and the benefit to the Capital Campaign will be a testimony to each of us and our love for this Parish.
Also, please keep in mind and start thinking of ideas for the two contests for the cookbook–The Title and The Cover! This is open to parishioners of all ages. Spread the word about this! The committee will pick the winners and each winner will be awarded a cookbook when they come in! Be creative! If you submit a Polish title be sure to include the correct English translation as we will want to print that in the books. For the cover, suggestions would be, paintings, drawings, photographs, sketch works, and other works of art of the Church, a Rosary, The Blessed Mother, St. Isadore, one of our stained glass windows, food items and so on. The deadline for the title is Feb. 29th and for the cover is March 15th. Happy recipe writing and art working to each of us and may God bless our efforts and make them pleasing to Him.
God Bless and Take Care.
