Happy Michaelmas!

Today is the feast of St. Michael and the Archangels! The Professor has long had a devotion to St. Michael and took his name in Confirmation some years ago. We have celebrated today in many ways over the years. I think my favorite was the paper bag piƱata representing the 7 deadly sins. Today, the Professor is super excited to have a blackberry jam taste test on homemade soda bread! (Bread and jam... the way to a 17 year old boy's heart!) I've got two different jam varieties and I hope to acquire a third before tonight.

If you are looking for a simple way to celebrate, these two jams can probably be found at your local bullseye grocery store too.

Or if you'd like... I know this lady who made these coloring pages a long time ago... feel free to use them freely for your family and friends.
