The Good Shepherd's Garden Party :: Week Four

Can you believe it has already been over four weeks since Easter?  The weeks are going by so fast!   We are still celebrating the 50 days of Easter with The Garden of the Good Shepherd, and our fourth Garden Party is based on the theme "The Wind and Sea Obey Him."

Charlotte and I both made modifications to the menu again this week.   I just love the Leviathan Hot Dogs, Bun Boats, Pretzel Masts and Cheese Sails that she created for her family.  Click on over to her blog to see the rest of her pictures!

I don't think I've mentioned it here at Catholic Cuisine yet, but I, too, am expecting again and have been craving protein like crazy.   For our boats I opted to make some Deviled Egg Sail Boats, while restocking my fridge with a bowl of extra hard boiled eggs.   You can see the rest of our pictures over at Shower of Roses.

Now it's your turn!  How did you and your family celebrate the fourth week of Easter?  We'd love to see pictures and hear about how you modified our Good Shepherd's Garden Party for your family, or incorporated any of our other ideas (whether you choose daily activities or just one party for the week) into your celebration.

  1. I love this blog. It does make me sad because i have just learned the Catholic Faith. Cradle Catholic who married a Southern Baptist. Now I wish we could have fun with your ideas. I will try to use them but it is so difficult. Anything she thinks is Catholic is dumb.

    Keep it up!

  2. I just love these ideas! Thank you for the creativity you put into your blog. I look forward to reading it every day!
