We've celebrated a few feast days in August.
St. Dominic was August 8th, and we made white cupcakes with chocolate "cappas" in honor of the Dominican habit.
Although, admittedly, I've never seen a friar with sprinkles!
the Assumption. I wore my Assumption shawl to Mass!
It was a gift from beloved friends who visited us from Spain when Mxyl was a baby. The shawl is embroidered silk with elegant long tassels and is really a beautiful work of art!
Every Feast of the Assumption I wear it to Mass and pray for my friends, Tia and Tio.
Also for this feast, Klenda made an angel food cake and I made blue, raspberry flavored whipped cream.
We garnished it with fresh raspberries - yum!!
