We're having a Fair! - From Thy Bounty

Thank you for the enthusiasm you have shown for Catholic Cuisine. We will be hosting our first fair next week and your participation would be very welcome and much appreciated!

We thank the Lord for the blessings He has provided to our families and the opportunities those give us to celebrate and feast "from thy bounty" in our domestic churches through the year with all the feast days and celebrations. The From Thy Bounty Fairs will be a place for all of us to share our bounty of celebrations and feasts with each other in the format of a blog fair.

Since Spring (April/May) is a common time for First Holy Communions we are focusing this first fair on the festivities and foods of this sacrament's celebration. There will be various First Communion related posts at Catholic Cuisine over the next week. Then the Fair will be May 15. If you would like to participate please send me - mary_machado at comcast dot net - your submissions of First Communion Foods/Feast/Celebrations by the end of day May 14th or leave the link in the comments section. Even if you don't have a blog we would love your ideas and/or pictures to add to the fair. How does your family celebrate at home? Do you have a party? What foods are served? Does the first communicant pick the menu? Do you go out to eat to celebrate? Are there cultural traditions in your family?

Thanks!! Pin It

  1. The cakes that we get for our children on their First Communion say, "Welcome Jesus!", continuing the theme of the novena that they say prior to their First Communion day. The cakes have been store bought, save for the simple cake that I made last spring. A photo of it can be found by scrolling to the bottom of this post,

    Since I had a 4-month-old baby at the time, I kept the cake very simple by using boxed cake mix, store-bought icing and candy flowers, and a sticker from CHC's "Old Master's Stickers". The important thing was that it met my daughter's specifications and she liked it.
