St. Lawrence, Martyr

Praise and beauty are before him: holiness and majesty in his sanctuary.

St. Lawrence was a deacon of St. Sixtus II, Pope and Martyr. When the prefect of Rome arrested him, he distributed the possessions of the Church to the poor to save them from confiscation. He was slowly roasted to death on a gridiron in 258.

Grilling in honor of St. Lawrence.

Grilling in honor of St. Lawrence just seems wrong, somehow. . .

But I admit, it would be really cool if your bratwurst would let you know when it was done on that side. . .

Anyway, I thought Larry was a cucumber. . .

THAT seems wrong? You must have missed the raspberry sauce over vanilla ice cream on the feast of the Holy Innocents...

Oh, and I think someone did grill some cucumbers, although I can't say for sure since my focus was elsewhere.

"Turn me over! I'm done on this side!"

Um...I guess John isn't really aware or the difference between zucchini and cucumbers. I don't know that cucumbers would hold up very well on a hot grill, but the zucchini were delicious.

You seem to be really embracing the whole piety of Zmirak & Matychowiak, here. . .

I'll be looking for your report on the 'Nun's Farts'. . . Or, you know, some of the other stuff. . .
