Last night “The Godmother of Gloucester Sefatia Giambanco Romeo Theken,”,  and her cumnares, Giovanna Margiotta, Maria Cannavo, Pierina Locontro, came over to my house to make the decorative St. Joseph breads for our altar, at 10:30 after  Maria Cannavo, and I  both finished hosting our nightly our St. Joseph novena prayer service and coffee time.

We even found some time to sing a few rosary songs while the bread baked in the oven



Shaping the bread is a true art, but Giovanna, Maria, and Pierina have years of experience, and they were kind enough to share some of their crafting secrets with me last night.

Thank you ladies for another fun night in my kitchen. Cooking with you always reminds me of all the fun times cooking with my grandmother , mother, and aunts throughout my childhood!


Now our Family Altar is complete!
