Set your timer to remind you when to turn it, for steak ½ inch thick, 5 minutes per side is about right. While steak is broiling, put the walnuts, anchovies and vinegar in your food processor with the S plate in place. Pulse to chop everything together. Scrape down the sides of the processor to get the mixture back into the path of the blade. Put the top back on, turn the processor on, and slowly pour in about half of the olive oil. If necessary, scrape down the sides of the processor again at this point, then turn it back on and add the rest of the oil. When both sides of the steak are done, spread this sauce over the steak. Turn the broiler to low, put the steak back under it for just a minute, then serve. Memoires des choix des Jacque Good Eating! C A U L I F L OWE R P U R E E , a . k . a .

Microwave it on High for 10 to 12 minutes or until quite tender but not sulfury smelling. (You may steam or boil the cauliflower, if you prefer). Drain it thoroughly, and put it through the blender or food processor until it’s well pureed. Add butter, salt and pepper to taste. This is a wonderful substitute for mashed potatoes with any dish that has a gravy or sauce. Feel free, by the way, to use frozen cauliflower instead, it works quite well here.

This year’s theme was “Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, for you have answered his call to serve.” As has been the recent tra- dition during CCC’s an- nual convention, the first day provided our members with an opportunity to tour a local cemetery in the host city, which this year was Queen of Heaven Cem- etery , in Hillside, IL, gen- erously hosted by the Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic Cemeteries. Those attending the tour had the opportunity to visit and pay their respects at the Moving Wall , a half size replica of the Vietnam me- morial wall in Washington, DC, in addition to a tour of the newly constructed cre- mation garden, as well as visiting some of the notable sights throughout Queen of Heaven and Mt.
