Baraka Pita Bakery – North Main

Last month was Diocesan Synod. I went to Baraka Pita for supper on the Friday night. That’s the opening night of the Synod, with a Eucharist at St. John’s Cathedral. When I went to look up places down  North Main, I was surprised that it was late 2015 when I first visited Baraka Pita Bakery. So I figured that seven years between visits made it a good candidate for a revisit. I ended up giving myself a good amount of…Continue readingBaraka Pita Bakery – North Main

Ramallah Cafe Great Food at 325 Pembina Hwy

Ramallah Cafe on Pembina Highway is one of those restaurants that fall into the category of: I’ve been meaning to get there, but somehow just never got around to it. Fortunately, last month was my birthday. I share the month with our theology student, Susan, and so I was asked to pick a restaurant for a joint birthday lunch. So, I said, let’s try Ramallah. This turned out to be a welcome suggestion, and so that’s where the birthday lunch…Continue readingRamallah Cafe Great Food at 325 Pembina Hwy

Keeping the Ferial

I wrote this post on keeping the ferial six and a half years ago. I’m reposting it with some change in my thoughts. Not that I necessarily disagree with what I wrote, but that I find my approach to some matters a little changed in the interim. One more thing I have noticed since the start of the pandemic. Eating alone on a regular basis, makes it harder to keep my focus on the amounts I eat at each meal.…Continue readingKeeping the Ferial

Taste and See – Margaret Feinberg

A couple of years ago I wrote a bibliography when I was teaching a Lenten Course called Eucharistic Eating. When I compiled it, I noticed that it was rather low on books dealing with the Eucharist, or food and theology. I’ve finally getting around to correcting this. One of the first books I’ve picked up in that regard, is Margaret Feinberg’s, Taste and See: Discovering God Among Butchers, Bakers, & Fresh Food Makers.

Famena’s Famous Roti and Curry

Famena’s Famous Roti & Curry is a little counter top restaurant on Garry Street in downtown Winnipeg. It just a couple of blocks over from Holy Trinity. As I mentioned in my Holy Trinity Fall Supper post, there is a strong Caribbean influence at Holy Trinity. This influences is reflected in both the spiritual and culinary character of the parish. It`s through Holy Trinity that I developed by fondness for Caribbean Cuisine Famena’s Roti Lunch Famena’s Famous Roti & Curry …Continue readingFamena’s Famous Roti and Curry

Family Reunion – Mom’s 90th Birthday.

This Labour Day long weekend was family reunion time. The occasion being my mother’s 90th birthday. As I say in my about page, I’m the youngest of six boys. We’re spread all over western Canada, with one brother living in Houston, TX. This family reunion was our first in ten years. That time it was a much sadder occasion as we were all together for dad’s funeral. For many of us, it was our first chance to meet Inara, daughter…Continue readingFamily Reunion – Mom’s 90th Birthday.
