04/17/19 - NNHS Newsletter - Spy Wednesday

“Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, And said unto them,
What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him
for thirty pieces of silver. And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.”

Matthew 26:12-14 (KJV)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Today is Spy Wednesday, another observance during Holy Week. If you are as unfamiliar with this day as I was, I think you'll find the fascinating homework very powerful, even for non-Catholics.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 04/16/15:

“We should learn to be patient with ourselves. Recognizing our strengths and our weaknesses, we should strive to use good judgment in all of our choices and decisions, make good use of every opportunity, and do our best in every task we undertake. We should not be unduly discouraged nor in despair at any time when we are doing the best we can. Rather, we should be satisfied with our progress even though it may come slowly at times.”

Joseph B. Wirthlin, April 1987
(11 June 1917 - 01 Dec 2008)

I Spy with My Little Eye…16 Surprise Crochet Blanket Patterns - "Remember playing “I Spy” when you were a kid? It was always the best way to liven things up when they got a little tiresome. It hit me that it would be the perfect way to spice up some crochet afghan patterns. I Spy with My Little Eye…16 Surprise Crochet Blanket Patterns!"


I Spy a Crocus Hat - "After the brutal winter we’ve endured, I got up out of bed this past Saturday morning – our last weekend in March – hoping that maybe, finally, we’d have a decent, spring-like weekend. I had this silly notion that, “Oh, wouldn’t it be nice, to spy a sweet little crocus peeking out at me from somewhere in the yard?” Rather, overnight, my greening yard became buried under yet another blanket of ice and snow. Fortunately, when Mother Nature disappoints, all we have to do is grab our knitting needles! It’s true - necessity really IS the mother of invention. And, boy, did I ever need to see some flowers! Hence, my new “I Spy a Crocus” hat... " - not free, but $5.00 PDF on Ravelry.

The crushed pineapple lends a tropical taste to this yummy Jello mold and the Cool Whip adds a wonderfully creamy texture. Try this simple dessert recipe with Jello and you'll see just how delicious Polly's Pink Stuff can be!"

The Best Brunch - "These delicious brunch sliders take the essence of that Monte Cristo sandwich you know and love and transforms it into an easy brunchable dish that will please a crowd. This is the perfect thing to add to your brunch menu no matter the occasion. Melty, gooey Gruyère cheese, turkey, ham and some Dijon mustard are placed on a King's Hawaiian sweet roll and then topped off with a sprinkling of powdered sugar for a dish that will not soon be forgotten next time you gather together for a special celebration or casual brunch with friends and family."

He Has Risen Cinnamon Bun Pie - "If you love being able to have the best of both worlds when it comes to dessert and breakfast, you're going to adore this Heavenly Cinnamon Bun Pie. This delightfully-unique refrigerator biscuits recipe will knock your socks off. Whether you're preparing dessert, breakfast, or you just happen to be someone who likes having dessert for breakfast, this is one recipe that will satisfy all cravings. The fluffiness of a cinnamon bun radiates through this tasty 'pie' with the help of pre-made biscuit dough. Drizzle a bit of icing (store bought or homemade) on top if you like your desserts a little sweeter. Otherwise, this is the perfect brunch item!"
