Did you know that pretzels, those yummy baked treats we often get at the mall or mass-produced and sold to us in a cello bag, actually got their roots from the early Christians? I may have known that at some point in time, but it certainly has been tucked away in the cobwebs of my brain. So I was happy when I stumbled across Lacy’s post about this very topic to help me recall this fact.
“Catholic Icing” is written by Lacy and I thought sharing this fabulous site along with the pretzel printable and recipe would be quite nice for this Friday, the first week in Lent. Lacy has a short synopsis about the pretzel along with her originally designed free printable and pretzel recipe, but she also includes this link that talks more in-depth about the pretzel. Such a simple food, the pretzel, yet one that is steeped in tradition and is a gentle reminder for us about prayer and penance.
This is a short post today, but I’ve been under the weather this week and hope to be back to myself soon. Thank you for visiting and I wish many Blessings for you and your family.
