Did you know? Next year, there is no apostles fast :) I think this year the fast for some reason has felt more trying than in years past. I guess the warm weather, the early crops, and the fact that the only ways I really know how to enjoy squash involve either cheese or meat, has made it a frustration. At this point, I have frozen 20 squash casseroles. There are still buckets of squash left to be dealt with (my husband who loves squash planted 20 plants this year). Ripe tomatoes are crying out for a nice slice of mozzarella with that balsamic vinegar. I know this is not the attitude to have, but never have I wanted a fast to end more than this season! And, we have butchered a dozen chicken in the past month! I have endured days of smelling the wonderful scent of golden chicken broth simmering on my stove before it makes its way to the freezer. Chicken had been frozen according to parts, and I can't wait to cook it. So, yes, I am over it. Please can the 29th hurry up and get here?
