Each year, I love to offer Holy Week Foods for families to explore. Because we all love to eat, and so did Jesus! At Bethlehem Lutheran Church – Twin Cities, Ellen Weber, Dan Mariska, and I created a series of cooking videos entitled “Eat Your Way Thru Holy Week!” Each holy day connects a simple recipe using just 4-5 every day ingredients to the Holy Week Bible story. Check it out!
