A wonderful winters day

 I woke up the old board. Some of you might recall.
 This is organization central. It has set idle while I was recovering these last six years.
In years past this has been a vital tool in home making economics.
This tool and the use of it has saved us thousands of dollars.
 I got the gumption to do a menu today.
This is the first day in years that I have really been so active with food prep.
Years ago it was a weekly planner as it will now become again.

 Most restaurants have whats called a sue chief, the one who dices, cubes and such. Readying the ingredients for the dishes. Here as my own, I diced the onion, celery for the soup. Setting aside a measure for a curry for next week and some salad fixins.
 This big pot first was used to boil pasta, the pasta water was poured into the soapy sink water to soak pans. Reuse. Reduce and recycle is a motto I adored long before it was popular.
 Baked potato, enchilada, roasted root veg.
We have precious few cold days here. So the oven was set to double task.
Heat the house.
 To protect my back the plastic is now on a top shelf. The glass bake ware below.

 I buy good butter by the pound. Dicing up a bit for the week for eggs, or misc pan frying.

 By chopping up all the veggie for the soup into one large container it is all ready at the same time for the soup.

 These things set to cool on a rack.

 By melting butter I make gee, separate the whey and the solids. 
They would burn and add a bitter taste to my soup. 
There are times that the solid is best for flavor but not here.

 remove the whey or the white foam
then only use the oil not the solids

 This will not burn 
There are turorials on this blog for the soup somewhere.
Check out the side bar
 Roasted root veggies of carrot, parsnip, sweet potato.
Used butter and nutmeg on them. 
They will be served with the lamb later in the week.

 Here is where you can use up those butter solids and the whey.
 I added water to measure.
 After the cooling the enchiladas packaged into to meals.
 Buying organic bananas letting them ripen well, peal and store them in a zip bag in the freezer for breakfast protein smoothies
 My lamb will be baked with curry, I ran out and will make some more. 
Years back when I researched curries I made note of it on my re-purposed jar.
I'll set this a side for another day.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
