Meal Times on Friday

Fridays (or other normal fast days)
are pretty simple around our house.

Carrots for lunch.
The leftovers went
(with the carrot peels) into
the soup stock I made last night
and that is now melding flavours in the fridge).

Mr. Husband loves salad.

Toasted up bread;
yummy goodness! :) 

Mr. Husband cut up the apples...

Last night I made up a small batch
of sugar cookies.
Three trays and it was done!
I used a bit less butter and added
half-and-half (organic) instead of milk,
adding a bit more of this than last time.
I love my Fanny Farmer Cookbook!
I made these cookies even smaller
and they were a bit more 'fluffy' this time.
They are now sitting on the counter
in a simple plastic container...
So many of the items that make up my kitchen
are new to me, almost 5 months new;
wedding gifts;
can you imagine,
Mr. Husband and I will be married 5 months already;
we were talking about our early months of dating
and agreed that it felt like a long time ago already...
Next week exactly will be 5 months of marriage for us.
I am still loving the newly married stage;
it is a special stage, I can tell;
and I pray that God will help us continue to build
a peaceful and strong home together
protected by Christ and His Mother.
