Today we celebrate Pentecost! FIFTIETH day of Easter! Happy Birthday Mother Church! Today I wanted to make a "red" meal to represent flames of fire, as descended upon the Holy Apostles and the Blessed Virgin.
This 'red' was delicious. However BAP and SSP were saying their tongues were on fire from dinner though they did still enjoy it.
