Roasted Sausage and Pepper Subs and the Feast of Saint Lorenzo
Zucchini and Parmesan Balls. They were super fast to put together.
Saturday was the Feast of St Lorenzo. He is the patron saint of cooks and chefs. According to legend St Lorenzo, the church of Rome’s librarian and archivist, was thought to have a list of all the members of the early church and hidden treasures. On August 8, in year 258, two days after the Emperor Valerian executed the Pope and deacons, he ordered Lorenzo to produce all the Vatican’s wealth. On August 10, Lorenzo arrived to the palace and presented the poor, the crippled, the blind and the suffering, and said these were the true treasures of the Church. And then he was executed. Lorenzo was executed by slowly being roasted on the grill. Instead of revealing the Church’s wealth, Lorenzo, while burning on the grill, gathered the strength to tell his executioners “Turn me over. I am done on this side.”
