Catholic Cuisine Contributor Mary Machado first posted about this tradition here at Catholic Cuisine back in 2008 and our family has enjoyed Ascension Picnics ever since. As we prepare to celebrate this year's feast of the Ascension I thought I would share a couple pictures from last year's picnic.
.: Our Ascension Picnic Menu :.
Curried Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Chinese Chicken Salad
(It is traditional to eat some sort of bird since Jesus "flew" to heaven.)
(The fruit represents Christ, the first fruit of all men.)
(Symbolizing the clouds that were in the sky.)
Sparkling Grape Juice
(Chosen for the "rising" bubbles.)
I'll also be serving Ascension Pancakes once again (originally shared by Jamie and found in the archives here) for breakfast . You can find additional ideas for the Feast of the Ascension in the archives.
