Lent 2013 Challenge Day 8: The Big Cheat

So, you know the rules, 20 minutes or less, right?  What if, in order to get all the kids where they need to be, all the adults where they need to be, and in order to barter for an emergency haircut from a friend who also needed help from you, you needed to make a really cheap dinner for nine people?  Does that justify the breaking of the 20 minute rule?

I hope so.  I made a batch of sauce (that recipe should be coming up in this coming weekend’s food prep post) to put on top of two large quick thin-crust pizzas, but the cooking of both sauce and pizzas went well over the 20 minute rule… like, by an hour or so.  Honestly, I’m not sure I feel bad about it, either.

Some of you might have noticed that I just used the phrase “emergency hair cut.”  Maybe not “emergency,” but certainly an urgent hair cut.  Why?  Hopefully I’ll be able to tell you officially within the next few days.  In the meantime, please spend some time looking at Full Quiver Publishing‘s current catalog of Theology of the Body books, especially the fiction ones…
