Well, the blogosphere has been a good deal of fun in the last six months. So many new blogs, so many great people! Good stories, insights, and perspective. All this to say that it is going to be very hard to be away for this next season. As of Sunday, Forgiveness Vespers, and I'll be gone till the shouts go up and joy rings out in all of our temples that beautiful night. I ask your prayers and offer you mine.

Please forgive me, a sinner.

Pascha looms afar off.

aka Pizza week in Orthodox homes around the world.

Last night I booted Sara out of the kitchen (as i often do), and began crafting a pizza that will live in our hearts and minds for quite a long time to come.

Essentially, it was the delightful crust (par baked on a pizza stone with a little olive oil), mozzarella, parmesan, and goat cheese that made this great. Not to mention the mushrooms, garlic, olives, bell pepper, and onions. I sauted the onions in olive oil for about 5 minutes...this helps soften and sweeten them up a bit. And the goat cheese...ohhh the goat cheese (single tear)...i sorta of randomly bombed out sections of the pizza with this stuff. Sprinkled just small amount of parmesan over the pie. One more thin layer of mozzarella and into the oven. While the aesthetic has been sacrificed to the gods of cheese and veggie pile, the resulting taste in incredible. Can't wait till lunch today.

Being an Anglican one actually looks forward to dishes like this during lent.
