Ice-cream and waffle thought they’d never connect. Oh they saw one another from a distance. They swooned and made googly eyes when the owners weren’t looking, but they thought their love affair was doomed. Their owners had concession booths next to one another at the 1904 St Louis World’s fair but the distance between them was just too great.

Then a miracle happened. The ice-cream man ran out of dishes and the waffle man rolled his waffles into a cone shape and the love affair began after all. It travelled all over the world and you might even find it at your local mall!

You see, you never know how the world will change when you help one another out, like those two concession stand owners did.

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. (1 Thessalonians 5:11, NIV)

Prayer – Lord, help us to be kind to and encourage one another, just because we can. Amen

Lettuce Turkey

It’s hard to pull a meal together when the oven is taken up with a big old fat turkey, isn’t it? I’m giving you this saving grace recipe now. Print it off and save it in case I forget to repeat it for Thanksgiving or Christmas.

  1. Cook the turkey the day before.
  2. Carve the turkey into serving size slices.
  3. Separate Romaine lettuce leaves.
  4. Wash them and pat them dry.
  5. Put a layer of Romaine lettuce in an aluminium pan or large roast pan.
  6. Add a layer of turkey.
  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6, ending with a layer of Romaine leaves.
  8. Cover tightly with foil and put in fridge.
  9. To heat the turkey, add about ¼ cup water to the pan.
  10. Heat in 250ºF oven till turkey is at the desired serving temperature.

P.S. Here is God’s recipe for lettuce: Let Us Love One Another.

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35, NIV)

Prayer – Lord we pray that you give us the strength to do just that. Amen

Crock Pot Stew

Here’s my favourite stew recipe which is also in my latest book, The Food Lover’s Devotional. This recipe beats your favourite take-out on speed dial

 Crockpot Stew
1 ½ pounds stewing beef, rinsed and patted dry
Small jar of sweet pickled onions, drained
4 large carrots, peeled, cut in large chunks
4 medium potatoes, peeled, quartered
3-4 tablespoons salsa
1 can of cream of mushroom or celery soup

Layer the ingredients in crock-pot. Put the lid on, set the dial on low and simmer for four to six hours. It feeds four to six people but easily multiplies to feed a crowd.

 

Hope to see YOU there!

Life Conundrums

Why is it that stay-on lipstick lasts longer on cup rims than on lips?

Why is it that birds start to chirp at least one hour before the alarm clock goes off?

Why is it that babies need another diaper change right after you change them?

Why is it that a permanent wave treatment is not permanent?

Why is it that my phrasing here is such bad English?

Why is it that a God who could do anything he wants, bothers with us?

I don’t know the answers to any of these questions. Do you?

And he said unto them, Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness. And they could not in three days expound the riddle. (Judges 14:14, KJV)

Prayer – Thanks God, for making life confusing and so interesting at the same time!
