A Lo-Carb Experiment

Had the best dinner last night!

 In an attempt to go lo-carb I've been subjecting my poor daughter to much experimentation. Every once in awhile I hit on one that says do- it-again! Or, at the very least, this-is-worth-playing-with-some-more....

I had some chicken thighs I had meant to marinate, but, of course, forgot...had to use them though so, fried 'em up in some coconut oil (I'm lovin' this new discovery!) along with a little garlic, salt, pepper and a sprinkling of basil. Cooked til almost done,then poured some cream in there, lowered the heat a bit, covered and let it all heat up and get to know each other better. I checked it every now and then, giving it a stir around, flipping the meat, til it thickened to my liking, then served it up, pouring a bit of the yummy sauce over the top, and added some mixed greens on the side along with ( my personal favorite) blue cheese dressing.

Oh my goodness! I can't wait to have it again!

And it wasn't too filling, so we enjoyed some leftover chocolate avocado pudding with strawberries and whipped cream ( real cream, a lighter version of sugar)for dessert!

Next time I think I'll add a few thin slices of red bell pepper, maybe some fresh mushrooms....And...I'll try to remember to get pictures. Lindsay hates it when I do that! :-)

A New Blog

I have recently begun a new blog, where I post about the more Spiritual side of my life, those things I am hearing from The Lord, as well as some book reviews, or whatever The Spirit leads me to share with my spiritual family.

For those who would like to keep up with those things our Lord is putting on my heart, please stop by! http://awaitingtrumpetcall.blogspot.com/
 I just updated this morning!

God Bless!

Homeschoolers Unite for Public Schooled Kids

I understand kids in Public Schools around the country are being told they cannot pray, at any time, for any reason. Not allowed to pray over their lunch. What if a Christian friend is injured and needs or wants (same thing really) prayer? What if someone is being bullied? How 'bout before a big test?

I thank God I am able to homeschool my children, and we are able to start our day with a prayer, pray over our lunch, and pray any time we feel led to do so!

I am proposing that we as Christian homeschoolers pledge to start each day of our school year by sitting down with our children and praying for those public schooled children who are not allowed the same God given (even God commanded!) right!........What say you? Amen?

I've always wanted to have chickens! Now the kids and I are embarking on a new adventure, which comes with benfits! Eggs!! Yes! It may be the funniest looking coop you ever saw, but it was all done for free! The coop itself was a freebie from a yard sale, and we built the rest with things we had around the property.

Wish us luck! And check out the photos telling "the rest of the story" at flickr :)

The Cross Emerges

This was one of my favorite photos from the burn-to-learn. It seemed like a sign that He was there, in charge the whole time.

For those who prefer still photos to videos :) I posted several on flickr, including a couple of the kids when one of the Firefighters was letting them handle the hose!
