The Feast of St Joseph

Our St Joseph celebrations began with ds(7) and his dad bringing home a bunch of half a dozen red roses; great perfect for the altar. I took my lead from a suggestion on this forum and chose sloppy joes for the main course and cream puffs for dessert. Ds(11)'s middle name is Joseph and has always had a special devotion to the head of the Holy family so it was a special family celebration!

Our "Sloppy Joes" recipie
Fry sliced onion then brown 1 kg . lean mince meat in a deep frying pan .Drain meat  Add 1  large can tomatoes blended,2 tbs tom sauce, 1 cup tomato puree 4 tbs soya sauce  2 sliced red and green pepper, five sliced mushrooms add sliced onion cooked plus as much garlic as your family like(!). Season with garlic and pepper and a little chille powder. Cover pan and let cook on low f for about twenty minutes. Serve piping hot in crusty, thick rolls, or serve over rice as a main dish. Also makes great taco filling.

This devotional reminds me of my childhood feast days. St. Joseph's day was a feast for all the poor in town, who were fed and clothed and loved more than ever on this day.
