More new recipes.

This recipe, Bombay Style Sloppy Joes was fantastic. Especially if you are looking to add something just slightly different to your month. We really enjoyed the slightly spicy, very flavorful variation to traditional sloppy joes.

New Year. another new recipe.

I am trying to add some soups to my repertoire. This one popped up in 101 Cookbooks called,  A Luxurious and Deeply Aromatic Noodle dish, that we tried and really enjoyed.  I added some raw shrimp as well as some shelled edamame and carrots carrots to the broth to increase the satisfaction around here. Even Grant like it!

Read this blog.
I just finished reading her book, and it has won my heart with its poetry and prose, the content and the disclosure. She is an amazing gift herself as a writer and a champion of true Christian joy in life.
Ever heard of sehnsucht? It is a word that describes a deep longing, a mania, a true yearning--and I ran across this word in both her writing and Tim Keller's book, Prodigal God. As I finished both of these books this week I was so excited to read how they both use this German word to describe our need to fill our longings with that which is eternal. Ann though gives us a great way to begin living that way, by giving thanks. So I too, along with a body of believers, am looking for God's blessings in each and every moment, both beautiful and ugly, and trying to see it as a reflection of His goodness.
