Gorbulas likes to eat bananas!
I am making eggplant parmagiana for dinner tonight (Wednesday-no meat). I make it by baking the eggplant after I bread it with eggs and bread crumbs. My grandmother makes it really yummy by breading it first, then dipping it in the egg and frying it with lots of olive oil. I am not an accomplished cook when it comes to frying.
I think I will send my dh tonight to buy the bread from Prinzo’s-the around the corner Italian bread bakery-because I do not feel like making it tonight.
I find Italian so easy to make. Once about every two months, I make a large pot of gravy, a regional Italian-American word for tomato sauce, and can it in about 8 pint sized Ball jars and store them in the cupboard. I always have gravy around this way.
Maybe I will send hubby for some wine too…
Initially, Pfleger’s introduction of Sharpton centered on the protestors outside.
“Let me say first to all those protesting outside,” said Pfleger, “Welcome. I’d love to have them come in and hear Rev. Sharpton.” With parishoners applauding, Pfleger then asked ushers to go outside and invite the protestors in. None accepted the invitation.
Pfleger also referred to “hundreds” of e-mails and calls he received “of hate and threats” but said he loved those people anyway, adding that those who sent the messages “are going to have to answer for that some day.
“I also know that if Martin Luther King was alive today and going to speak,” said Pfleger, “they would oppose him, too.” Pro-life groups disagreed, citing MLK’s pro-life views on abortion.
Of course, people protesting Al Sharpton speaking at a Catholic Church is really because they are anti-black, not pro-life. He sees right through us (I wasn’t there to protest, but I did protest by sending an email to the diocese and whined a lot via this blog) we are not outraged by the slaughter of innocent babies, we are all white racists (even those of us who are black).
Even the comment about MLK, can we please have some perspective here? Now poor MLK, is not alive now to defend himself, and I do not want to overshadow his positive views on integration, but he would not have been appropriate to homilise at a Catholic Church either-he was a Protestant minister, an adulterer and he spoke at Margaret Sanger’s funeral. If his life continued the same trend, I may have written a letter to the diocese about allowing MLK to homilise at a Catholic Church also-who knows?
An Atlanta-based cable company said Tuesday it plans to launch a 24-hour news channel aimed at black viewers late this year or early in 2004.
According to the article, the planned network is going to be called, “MBC News: The Urban Voice.”
(A quibble — the assumption underlying “urban voice”. What about all the black people who make their homes in the burbs and in rural areas?)
