Writing a letter to your confirmation candidate

It seems that one of the biggest events in confirmation preparation in this country is the letters of support to be given to the confirmation candidates during their mandatory retreats.

I have three such letters saved on this blog:

Confirmation letter to my daughterConfirmation letter to my fourth sonConfirmation letter to to my third son
I've asked my children what they remember about the letter they got from me and their dad, and also what they remembered about the letters they received. 
The answer was not much, or at least nothing specific. In general they were happy to have gotten a bag full of letters and there was a sense of feeling loved and supported.

Works for Me Wednesday - a fun Lenten Meal

A couple of weeks ago I boughtBiggest Loser Family Cookbook: Budget-Friendly Meals Your Whole Family Will Love to add some more healthy meal choices to my repertoire. One of them so far turned out to be a new Lenten favorite!

It's called Hula Pizza and it's in the appetizer section but we easily turned it into a meal and even put our own twist on it!

It's very simple- you take a burrito shell and top it with a thin layer of barbecue sauce. We all agreed that when it comes to the sauce for this recipe, plainer is better! Then you top with feta cheese and pineapple chunks, heat under the broiler for a few minutes and then it's ready to eat.

We decided that a few chopped green onions made it a little tastier and also if we folded the burrito and put it on the George Foreman it was just as tasty and easier to eat for little hands.

And for a nonLenten meal I think chopped cook chicken might be a nice topping for this as well.

Works for Me!
