Two for Others Tuesday…. oh. Oops.

I’m already late. No sense wasting time with banter.
Happy Catholic: When I went to CMN in August, I met a lot of people I’d never met before. Since I spend most of my very limited blog-reading time on cooking blogs rather than Catholic blogs, I have read very few of the latter. So when I met a bunch of Catholic bloggers at CMN, there were admittedly few to whom I could say, “Oh, yeah, I’ve read your blog!” Julie from Happy Catholic is one of those, well, two, (the other being Jennifer F. at Conversion Diary). She’s happy. She’s Catholic. She’s a Firefly fan. She’s one of those people I kind of want to sidle up to and, all big-eyed, say, “Will you be my best friend?”
Catholic Cuisine: I don’t think I met anyone from Catholic Cuisine at CMN, but if I did, I apologize for not putting your real face with your virtual one. I’ve been reading Catholic Cuisine for years, because every time I search for ideas on how to cook something that is related to a Catholic feast day, they are the first hit. Their stuff looks lovely. I have to admit, though, that I read CC much in the same way I read Neal Stephenson’s Diamond Age etc etc, homemaking magazines, or 97% of Pinterest: I think, “Wow, that looks awesome. But we all know nothing like that is ever going to happen.” And then, voila! Somebody makes it happen. That somebody, when it comes to fancy spiritual confections, is Catholic Cuisine.
