Paladini Potpie

Adventures within The Crust!

About Paladini Potpie

Welcome!  My name is Andrena Paladini and this is  a blog about family, love, faith and fun.  I’m calling it Paladini Potpie because a potpie is like an adventure in a crust.  You never know what might come up, but it’s always going to be good! Think about the best potpie you’ve ever eaten…hot flaky crust holding a rich savory sauce and all kinds of pieces of meat and vegetables…and who knows what else?

As a family we’ve chosen to live within the parameters of God’s love and protection.  This is the crust of our Paladini Potpie. The crust never changes. Within this crust is the savory sauce of family love that binds it all together.  That is also fairly constant.  But beyond the crust and the sauce we can add just about anything!

Good ideas come our way and we’ve adopted and adapted them to add to what John calls our treasure box of memories.  These stories and ideas from John’s treasure box of memories are the ingredients I’m putting into our Paladini Potpie.

(Okay, so this ridiculous mixing of metaphors about treasure boxes and potpies is exactly what I’m talking about.  Silly and ungrammatically correct.  But both illustrations work… so we’ll mix them together and it’ll be just fine!)

John and I have been married for more than 30 years and we now have three grownup children: Matthew, Monica and David.  Three more wonderful “children” were added when David married Amanda, Monica married Dan, and Matthew married Sarah.  And the potpie continues to grow, holding six beautiful grandchildren.

I hope you’ll subscribe to my Paladini Potpie blog, and keep up with all the fun new ingredients I add.  Hopefully you’ll enjoy our stories and ideas, and find something you’ll want to put into your own potpie! Bon appétit!
