Laying Up Treasures (and a recipe for Roasted Green Tomato Salsa Verde)

  Today, I'm canning the last of the tomatoes from our garden. Steve picked all the tomatoes that were left so he could pull the plants and get the garden ready for next year.  We have lots of green tomatoes, so I'm trying a Roasted Green Tomato Salsa Verde (recipe below). Strangely enough, with canning as my project for today, my devotional  was Matthew 6:19-21.  “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;  but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and...

Family, Flavored Butter & DIY  picks

This week has been a reminder to me of how important it is to cherish your family while you can.  Your loved ones may not be here next year for many different reasons. This blog was originally written in 2017.  I came across it while cleaning up some of my files. I thought I'd republish it so you can have new "pick thingies" for Thanksgiving to impress your sister or guests. My sister is one of the delights in my life!  That is her on the left and me on the right with the cool glasses.  Aren't we adorable!   This...

Abundance is a Basket Full of Zucchini

Abundance means plenty, or a very large quantity of something. It is the innate tendency of nature and of life to manifest, grow, and become more. It's zucchini season, and abundance is here.  As children of God, we are promised abundance not only in our gardens but in every area of our lives.   John 10:10 AMPC The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).     Abundance means having more than enough in every situation or circumstance you find yourself...

Pulled Pork Sandwiches with White Horseradish Barbecue Sauce

  This is one of our favorites!  The pulled pork goes into crockpot for 6-8 hours.   Make the BBQ sauce ahead of time to let the flavors blend. Then you have the whole day to clean (or play).  Serve on buns or grilled cornbread with coleslaw. Give it a try, I think you will enjoy it

Experience a Flavor of Ireland

Experience a Flavor of  Ireland

    St. Patrick's Day is coming up soon.  It's time to switch out the Valentine's Day red and pink for Irish green and gold.  I don't do a lot, just replace table runners and entryway décor.   Some of my ancestors came from Ireland during the Potato famine. Like other immigrants over time, they came with the hope to experience a better life for themselves and their children. They prayed to be free from those who oppressed them and have the freedom to worship God.  Let's join our prayers with the prayers of our ancestors for future generations to...
