holy bread

the nuns in sinsinawa are famous for their bread, rolls and fruitcake.  cinnamon roll is my favorite.

the bakery is in the sinsinawa mound, a complex located in southwest rural wisconsin amid lush woodlands, orchards, vineyards and fields.  it is the motherhouse of Dominican sisters, a religious congregation dedicated to preaching and teaching the gospel here and abroad.  they also offer retreats, reflections and programs for spiritual enrichment.

hubby and i joined our friends for a holy mass with the sisters, lunch at the mound picnic grounds then made a side trip to nearby galena, a popular midwest destination.
