Happy feast day!

Today is the feast day of Saint Michael, Saint Gabriel and Saint Raphael, the archangels.

If I think of a story worth posting on the blog, I’ll come back and do it later. (For now, here’s a story about my guardian angel telling me his favorite place on Earth.)  But I think I owe St. Raphael enough favors at this point that I should dedicate a hospital to his name.

The archangel characters in my books are pretty awesome, but the real archangels blow them away. Usually I make a lasagna in their honor on their feast day, but that’s not going to be possible today, so instead how about some blog-love? I hope that’ll do.

    Why a lasagna?

      I want to make a fuss over them, and I’m Italian so I tend to fuss with food. Lasagna isn’t a usual staple in our diet.

      Eggplant parm is another “I made this because of the angels” meal. My kids aren’t so happy about that one, though. 🙂 Not as happy as when we get donuts because of the angels, as you can imagine.

        Angel food cake. Just sayin’.

          I don’t like angel food cake. 🙁 I usually make them a lemon cake.

    My Deist husband would be perfectly happy to celebrate angelic feasts with lasagna or eggplant parmesan. I was just wondering if there was some special theological significance to the layers or something.
