Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival (October 6, 2013)

Sunday Snippets

School has kept me unbelievably busy so I’ve had almost no time for blogging. The following posts are from the last three weeks:

A Lemon Cookie recipe for the busy woman (or man!)

Put the Lime in the Coconut (a fun little video to brighten your day)

Ten Scripture Verses to Memorize with Children

I also posted my weekly goals but didn’t bother linking them up here.

Question of the Week:

Have you ever tried the Liturgy of the Hours (Divine Office)? Why or why not, and, if so, is it something you pray regularly?

Yes, I have prayed the Liturgy of the Hours. It was an integral part of my prayer life when I was with the Little Sisters of the Poor. Since leaving, I’ve prayed the Liturgy of the Hours off and on. It is a beautiful prayer and I will continue to pray it when I can.

P.S. If you could say a quick prayer for me: I have a huge exam on Tuesday, so please pray that I do well in the course. Thanks!

Simple and Delicious lemon cookie recipe

Question of the Week:

This week question is “What is your favorite formal (memorized) prayer?”

I have two. The Anima Christie which I say after receiving communion and the Te Deum which I try to pray every Sunday except during Lent.

 

A Lemon Cookie Recipe for the Busy Woman (or Man!)

(A republish of a popular post from 2010. As many times as I’ve made this recipe, I can’t believe I keep forgetting to take a picture! One of these days...)

This cookie recipe is another one that was passed on to me by my dear friend, Rita. What makes it so easy and unique is that it’s made from a cake mix!

Recipe: The Busy Woman’s (lemon) Cookie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 1/3 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  1. Mix all the ingredients together until well blended.
  2. Drop by 1 tablespoon on a greased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake in a 350 preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.
  4. Cool on a wire rack.
  5. Enjoy!

Quick Notes

For the sake of this recipe I used the lemon cake mix because it is one of our favorites. You can use any cake mix you want. The chocolate or the strawberry mix works well.

You can use add-ins, such as chocolate chips, caramel or butter scotch, if desired. Try mixing and matching different cake mixes/add-ins to create different flavor combinations. Have fun with it!
