CULTURAL FOOD NIGHT — Tonight was West Indies (Caribbean) Food Night, a combination of Bahamas, Jamaica, Haiti and Puerto Rico.  Lots of good food … some more spicey than others.  I hope I can remember all the food off the top of my head … here we go …

drink … Sky Juice (coconut + ?) … Bahamas
soup … Pumpkin soup … Haiti
meat … jerk chicken & beef … Jamaica
rice … yellow rice & beans … Puerto Rico
appetizers … great bread + (meat-filled baked pockets – look like empenadas)
dessert … Rum cake … wizardry of “Oz”

Great food!


Here’s some pics of all the work involved.  I helped Eric pack the appetizers with some origami techniques. 🙂

spleen love – Puerto Rican food

SpleenMASS – (Fr Santos) — Today’s Gospel shows Jesus “moved with pity” for a woman who walked in her son’s funeral procession.  From the Greek text, Jesus is moved “from his innermost being,” which was believed to have come from the spleen (–it’s somewhat close to the heart).  The priests that “the Church” responds most to are those that are “compassionate & kind,” who have love for the people, but, most especially, for Christ “from their innermost being.”

CULTURAL FOOD NIGHT — Today is the first ethnic food night.  Every Tuesday, the food theme is from a ethnic background of the various seminarians in the house.  Today’s theme is Puerto Rico.  Dessert was flan.  — it was good.
