Feast of saint george

I took quite a break from blogging as I seem to do every year, (especially since i was fasting from the computer for all of lent)but since my husband bought me my new iPad, it's easy to quickly type out a post here and there, and I miss having this online record of family life.

Of course I've shill been enjoying many of the wonderful mom blogs out here that tempt me daily with ideas for meals, crafts and whatnot, and this is why at 3pm on the feast of st. George, I was phoning my husband at work to ask him to bring home a few things for supper.

"honey, could you please stop at the store on your way home from work to pick up a few things for me?"

"Sure, what do you need?". (I often request things like salmon or eggs or milk)

"oh, just a few things... Fruit rollups, a toblereone bar and some Hershey kisses"

"uh.. What are you up to???"

" oh nothing.... Just reading those inspiring catholic mommy blogs again. How could I let the feast of st. George go by without making a fantasticDragon cake for the kids?"

And we ate at close to 8pm that night... But boy did we ever have fun stabbing the dragon with our knives and eating the sweet cake.

Awesome! I love St. George, he's one of my favorites:) (I keep thinking I want to name our homeschool after him, but no one else in the family is struck by the idea). Your cake turned out wonderful!
