Faith, Food, Frustration

I'm thinking of adding another word to my list on the sidebar--frustration! Last week I wanted to post a picture of my dad from his birthday, but in trying to transfer the picture from camera to computer I erased the picture from my camera--I was soooo disappointed. Then, when I tried to blog about the whole experience, I lost the blog update before I could post it! So you can imagine my FRUSTRATION. Will I never make the transition to technology?

So, I'm turning to FOOD! A couple days ago the latest issue of Healthy Cooking arrived. It always renews my excitment for cooking and meal planning. And, a couple of you have the same magazine, so maybe we can share some of our successes and failures. Yesterday I made the Slow-Cooked Southwest Chicken and we thought it was pretty good. (John probably wouldn't pick it, but I noticed he had two servings.) Jessie thought it could use a little more seasoning in spite of the 1 tsp. cumin already in it--maybe a couple dashes of hot sauce. This morning I made the Nutmeg Waffles. I thought they would be yummy, but they were a little heavy--maybe less flour and more oil would help.

Now I want to say something about FAITH. Isn't it interesting that when God wants to teach us something, he comes at us from several different directions? In our ladies' Sunday School we're studying Susanne Scheppmann's Birds in My Mustard Tree, a study of faith, and we're having some great discussions about faith and how it grows. For Christmas Jessie gave me a wooden plaque that says, "FAITH, ordinary people with faith can do extraordinary things." I have it hanging by my kitchen sink to remind me that I'm very ordinary, but God has chosen to use me to accomplish his purposes. He even gives me the faith to start with and the experiences to grow it.

Have a great day!

Is that recipe like the one I made at your house that time for a church thing?

Oooh, I don't remember that. You can find it at the Taste of Home website. I think you guys would like it. It's served over rice. Let me know if you want it and can't get to it on the site.
