Soapmakers generally really like to also bake and I'm no exception!   Tomorrow is the feast of Pentecost and Sr. Rita and I are the Sunday cooks assigned to cook for the community on this feast.   So today we are doing some of the preparation work so that tomorrow goes smoothly and we actually get the meal on the table.  There are a few of us who also sign up to bake for Sunday breakfast and I included that in my service for tomorrow.    This morning I baked up a batch of English Muffin bread and prepped my dessert which will be White Chocolate Cherry Pie.   I'm sharing a photo from the recipe book:

I'm not the only one preparing for the Feast tomorrow.   Srs. Jane and Denise have been working all morning fashioning flower arrangements for Chapel and for our Refectory (dining room):

Wishing you all a glorious feast of Pentecost....and a relaxing Memorial Day weekend when we gratefully remember all of our brothers and sisters who have given their lives in service to our country.  
Our gratitude goes also our Veterans as well as those who are currently serving in harms way.   May our good God keep you safe.
