The Catholic Church uses the term Eucharist in two ways:
- to describe the celebration of the mass, and
- to define the sacrament of the Eucharist, also known as the Holy Communion….the round-shaped tortilla-looking chip.
The Holy Communion is simply a repetition or a re-enactment of Jesus’ Last Supper. It is during the Last Supper that Jesus H. Christ reminded his disciples that He will live forever long after His earthly form dies. During their final meal together, Jesus says, “Take this bread and eat it. This is my body which will be given up to you. Take this wine and drink it. This is my blood which will course through your vessels. Do this in memory of me.” The priest who conducts Mass repeats these same words as he blesses the communion and wine. Think of the Last Supper as Jesus’ farewell party where He served chips and wine to His twelve guests.

The spot has been vacant since Wags and Wiggles dog grooming left last fall and Subway moved into part of that space this spring.

Canadian producers have doubled and tripled facilities to meet increasing demand and grocery retailers have experienced temporary shortages, leaving consumers scrambling for the latest holy grail of a healthy diet.
I was as shocked as you are, when I looked at this first-ever glimpse of a new dish from the world-famous kitchen of Noma, in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Noma is the Michelin two-star that has zoomed to the top of many international lists as the world’s best restaurant. Chef-owner Rene Redzepi has created in Copenhagen a new Nordic cuisine, yes…but he has also been honing a style you might call “primitivist modern.”
Maricopa, AZ — On June 21, 2012, the Maricopa Historical Society held a successful fundraising event at Yogurt Jungle located at 21101 N. John Wayne Parkway. Sharilynn Hewitt, (owner of Yogurt Jungle), donated 20% (pre-tax) of the yogurt sales amount to the Maricopa Historical Society.
