It’s giveaway time and I am excited!
Earlier this week, I shared the highlights from Fr. Leo’s visit to the Diocese of Austin. He was an incredible speaker and an equally fantastic cook. I was able to try his infamous Fusion Fajitas that bested Bobby Flay in “Throwdown” on the Food Network. Yeah, the fajitas are really that good.
Fr. Leo, the founder of the apostolate Grace Before Meals, recently published his newest cookbook, “Spicing Up Married Life,” but it does more than just feed your body. It feeds your soul. Fr. Leo’s smart like that.
In the book he showcases twelve dinners, from appetizer to dessert, along with reflections and questions for discussion related to married life. It is brilliant. When visiting with him this weekend, Scott and I shared we often do “at home” dates. We put the kids to bed early and then have a late dinner, just us. You know what Fr. Leo’s response was?
“That’s nice, but I have a better idea.”
HA. Love it. He suggests that couples have “month-aversaries” and send the kids to friends or family while they enjoy a date. Not only are you feeding your marriage, but friends, family and your children KNOW that you’re making your marriage a priority. He encourages families to build community to support their marriage. I know, I told you it was brilliant. So common sense that we’ve forgotten to do it.
