Our Lady of Mount Carmel
Our Lady, queen and beauty of Carmel, pray for us.
July 16 ~ New & Traditional Calendar
According to legend, a religious community was established even before the time of Christ on Mount Carmel. This is the mountain overlooking the Mediterranean Sea on which the prophet Elijah successfully challenged the priests of Baal and won the people to the true God. The feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel entered the Calendar of the universal Church in the early 18th century.
Dad has narrowed in on my favorite, Carmel Iced Coffee and his specialty, meatballs.
This recipe is not my own. Dad found it on one of my family’s favorite recipe site, Pioneer Woman. We have been using her recipes for some time. We even started a cooking challenge, where we make one of her recipes every week – for the entire year. We have never been let down by any of her recipes. She gives great directions and provides wonderful pictures and humorous dialogue. Pioneer Woman is also a homeschooling mom!
Dinner: Mini Meatball Sandwiches
Meatball ~ Mount Carmel.
Provolone Cheese ~ White for the purity of Our Lady.
Bread ~ The Bread of Life, Jesus – who Mary ALWAYS leads us to.
I like using ground turkey, Dad prefers ground beef.
Dad likes to make an extra large batch and freeze the cooked meatballs for future use.Pin It
