  • God’s unexpected presence is found in surprising encounters

    I recently received a copy of “Unexpected Presence: Twelve Surprising Encounters With The Divine Spirit,” edited by David Fortier. Usually, I find a series of this sort interesting but not particularly inspiring or moving. I prefer a single author and a longer, more detailed account that unfolds more elaborately…a novel versus short stories.
    This book proved to be an exception to that rule. The contents of each tale intrigued me and caused me to meditate on times when I had experienced the unexpected presence of God, a surprise of time, place and people.

  • Veal is not only healthy but quick and easy to prepare

    The unique, delicate flavor of veal can be easily incorporated into your favorite pasta recipes, including casseroles and even meat loaf. Substitute veal for other meats in your favorite recipes.
    Veal can be sautéed, stir-fried, broiled, stewed and grilled. When using less tender cuts of veal, the meat should first be marinated and then cooked with wet heat at low temperatures for longer periods of time. These methods would include braising, roasting, stewing, steaming, poaching and using a slow cooker.
