Yesterday Father came over to bless our home. We have rented here for three years and even though Ethan always does the Epiphany Blessing every January 6th, we had neglected to have to house officially blessed by a priest.
Father came and Philomena was very intrigued.
Afterwards we ate a homemade, comfort food dinner. It wasn’t fancy, but everyone had seconds or thirds so it was good enough!
On the menu was pan fried pork loin, macaroni and cheese with bell peppers and peas (using Trader Joes gluten-free brown rice pasta), and broccoli with Kerrygold butter. We had Blue Fin Moscato to drink, (it’s cheap but amazing and, yes, also from Trader Joes), and finished off the meal with vanilla ice cream topped with two-ingredient chocolate sauce from the 100 Days of Real Food Fast and Fabulous Cookbook.
I’m so happy to have the house blessed, and to have enjoyed a wonderful evening with Father talking and laughing with our little family.
Have you had your home blessed?
