Chef John’s Chilled Sugar Snap Pea Soup – Easy – Fast – Delicious – My Second Batch of this Excellent Chilled Soup – It’s Good Hot too – I Tasted it before I Chilled It – Recipe Available at Allrecipes -

Sugar Snap Pea Soup

Today I prepared my second batch of Chef John’s Chilled Sugar Snap Pea Soup from a recipe I found on Allrecipes.com (both links take you to the same place). In addition to the list of ingredients and instructions, a video is available. Chef John will walk you through the steps of the recipe and show you exactly what to do.

I made some changes, not because I thought I could improve the soup, but because I did not have leeks or mint leaves or cream fraiche, all of which were on the ingredient list. I used chopped onion instead of leeks, and I used dried oregano instead of fresh mint leaves. I would have used sour cream at the end, which I did have in the fridge, but the soup was so good without it that I left it out. If you have all or any these items that Chef John suggested, I would recommend using them. Chef John’s recipes are excellent. However, my chilled sugar snap pea soup was delicious as I prepared it. Steve liked it, too. so I made it again. I still don’t have the original ingredients. (Life goes on.)

If you make this soup, you will need to prepare it ahead of time. It needs three hours to chill in the fridge before serving. Do not despair if you don’t have time to chill it, because I tasted it hot, and it was delicious that way, also.

Apple Crisp for My Sweet Hubby Who Misses Apple Pie – He Is Yearning for the Old Wheat Pastries that I No Longer Bake – He Always Liked Apple Pie – Apple Crisp Is Almost Apple Pie -

Apple Crisp 1

Shopping for groceries, I pushed a cart through the produce area looking for vegetables. I found celery, cabbage, broccoli, cucumber, and tomatoes, enough for a few days. I looked around for Steve, but I couldn’t find him.

Just around the corner from produce was the bakery where I found Steve holding a single slice of apple pie, staring at it as though he needed to open it and eat it right there.

Steve strongly supports me in my new wheat-free journey. He doesn’t expect me to prepare foods made from wheat, and I do my best to make tasty foods without wheat. I don’t try to keep Steve from eating wheat, even though I think it is not good for anyone. When we go out to dinner, Steve eats wheat and enjoys it.

When I saw that he was longing for an old-fashioned wheat-based pastry, I offered to bake him an apple crisp. He smiled and put down the apple pie slice. As soon as we got home, I took the apples out of the fridge and started to prepare apple crisp.

Apple Crisp 2Steve is enjoying his bowl of apple crisp and ice cream right now as I type this post.

P.S. The recipe I used for apple crisp is from allrecipes.com. I substituted gluten-free flour for the wheat flour and used gluten-free flour instead of the oats, also. I increased the butter just a little. I also cut the recipe in half.

Weeds – After Five Months of Delay – Have Grown into Healthy Green Monsters Again – We Shall Prevail Against Them – Thanks to Steve’s New Healthy Hip -

Weeds Again

For many months Steve’s deteriorating hip worsened as vegetation of the wild variety grew strong and healthy in our yard. I did not attempt to keep this from happening. I am, at my best, an assistant in yard work. This is the day we have chosen to begin to reverse the curse. We shall tend the gardens together.

Other activities that were suspended for a time have started again. That was playing pool, which stopped while Steve was pulling up the old tile from the floors. The other was taking morning walks. I used walk alone, but now that Steve has a new hip, he walks, too. We walked eighteen minutes today, nine until the alarm rang and approximately nine on the return trip. The phone alarm told us when it was time to turn around. Each day we will increase the walking time by one minute before we turn around, two minutes total. (Okay, it’s a gentle increase. No reason to be hasty.)

We must get up earlier to make all this happen. Life is changing for us, and we are ready for it. Steve is blessed with a new hip that is healing as expected. We are grateful to the Lord and the fine doctors that performed the operation. I am grateful for a strong, kind, and considerate husband.

Jesus Said – Come unto Me, All You that Labor and Are Heavy Laden – and I Will Give You Rest –

 

SheepMatthew 11:28-30 – The Bible (KJV) -

Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

YOU – Whoever YOU Are – Wherever YOU Are – God loves YOU – Jesus Christ – Son of God – Gave His Life for YOUR Redemption – All His Blessings Are for YOU to Embrace – Jesus Accomplished Complete Victory – The Power of Evil Has Been Defeated – Believe and Receive -

Dove in sky

Such a headline gets attention. We may believe it or not. People sometimes get stuck in consideration mode. Is that you?

If we believe the truth, we see ourselves within the framework of truth.

John 8:32 – The Bible (ASV) – and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

(If you see yourself ugly even though someone that loves you says you are beautiful, you will remain ugly in your own eyes unless you believe the one that tells you otherwise.)

God says He loves us. Jesus, the Son of God, accomplished our salvation and demonstrated God’s love for us on the cross of Calvary. Christ crucified proves the value and the depth of God’s love.

Salvation comes embedded with benefits, evidence of God’s great love and desire to bless us bountifully. Consider and believe.

John 3:16 – The Bible (ASV) – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.

John 10:9-10 – The Bible (ASV) – I am the door; by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and go out, and shall find pasture. The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.

John 14:12-14 – The Bible (ASV) – Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, that will I do.

Hong Kong Gourmet Buffet

Hong Kong Gourmet Buffet

The dinner menu lists prime rib, crab legs, sauteed shrimp, oysters, and more! We party too much, but we enjoy it. We could party more. There is always something to do with our many friends. It’s not easy to stay home when there is so much fun to be had.

Tomorrow we plan to work in the yard. Steve plans for us to be outside by 7:30 or 8:00 in the morning. This man won’t stop.

Scorpion Visit – Not the First Occurrence – But the First to Frighten Me – I Know – I’m a Sissy – Steve Killed it for Me – He Is So Sweet -

Scorpion

This is my third confrontation with a scorpion.

My first scorpion sighting was the one in the photo you see. I suggested that it may have been under the influence of pest control, because it didn’t move. Steve explained that it was only playing dead, but as soon as we would draw near enough, it would strike. This defeated enemy wrangled with death for a few moments after Steve struck it, and that was it. Off to the toilet. Not too scary.

The second scorpion was waiting for me in our bedroom. I thought it was dead, but it was alive. This was shortly after Steve’s hip replacement operation, so I felt I needed to deal with it myself. The scorpion was clinging to the door frame in a stance as still as death, so I excused myself from its presence to get the fly swatter. The bug was not very large, after all, and I thought it was dead, but as I struck it, it came to life again. It fell off the door frame onto the floor twisting and attempting to run. I struck it again, scooped it up with the fly swatter, plunged it into the toilet and flushed. Done. Not too scary.

The scorpion last night struck panic in me! As I was brushing my teeth in the bathroom off the bedroom, I could see a huge scorpion lurking behind my wire toothbrush stand. It saw me, too! This one did not freeze frame like the other two. This one charged toward me with amazing speed and agility! Yikes! I did what most women do in such a circumstance. I screamed! Three times! Steve came running, as all heroes do. He knocked it onto the floor and killed it with the handle of his hairbrush. Dead. Forever. Flushed! Steve is SO wonderful. Ah. Life is good.

Monsoon Rains Pounded Our Rooftop All Night and into the Late Morning – Flash Flood Warnings Were Issued During the Night and Day – Dry – Hot Earth Has Sucked up the Rain Already -

Monsoon Rains

I woke up several times during the night to hear thunder and rain. I saw some lightning striking, too. Flash flood warnings were issued at least three times. Highways were closed because of flooding. Some businesses were closed. People were wading to get where they had to go.

Steve heard at our prayer meeting tonight that the Valley, Phoenix and surrounding areas, suffered an extreme weather event today that was somehow influenced or aggravated by the remnants of Hurricane Norbert. Excuse me. I didn’t know it was that bad! We sat here in our comfy house all day unaware of the distress some people apparently endured.

Our little part of Arizona is a brighter, cleaner place now. The thirsty earth devoured the raindrops almost as fast as they fell. Those drops that were not immediately swallowed up by the dry ground caused flooding, more flooding than I realized, but all is well, I believe.

I Am Learning – Seeing Some Scripture from a Different Perspective – Holy Spirit Says Yes – Yes to Promises of God – Yes to His Desire to Bless People – Yes to Healing – No to Sickness – Yes to Prosperity – No to Poverty – Yes to Grace – No to Condemnation – Some Clarification to Prevent Misunderstanding -

MP900438611

During my season as caregiver to my late husband, from the time Alzheimer’s disease attacked him until he went to be with The Lord, I was  unable to attend church services. I listened online to my own church and many other Bible preachers. I’ve been a Bible enthusiast for many years.

I gained new understanding of some scripture verses during those months. For instance, I had been taught that some verses in the New Testament were no longer efficacious to us. I have since learned that these instructions are as meaningful and effective today as ever. Such verses say that Christians should be going about telling the gospel, teaching the Word, healing people, casting out demons, and raising the dead. That’s a tall order, but it was issued because people needed to be encouraged to believe in Jesus. God still wants people to believe. He is still willing to help people believe today just as in the beginning days of His church. Signs and wonders were and are meant to encourage people to believe in Jesus.

I learned from preacher Joseph Prince about law and grace and how the tenets of law and grace should not be mixed. While the Old Testament scripture is of great value, the Covenant of Law is obsolete. That doesn’t mean that the commandments are wrong. They are pure and right. But they can no longer bring condemnation to a believer whose sin has been eternally forgiven through trusting in the finished work of Christ on the cross. New Covenant believers are eternally forgiven. The burden of keeping the law, which we all fall short of doing, is not a requirement for salvation under grace. We need only trust in Jesus. He fulfilled the law for us. He is our Lord and our salvation.

I do my best to write the truth about God’s love, telling that God doesn’t punish us for sins His son already suffered and paid for. I write that God doesn’t bring sickness or poverty into our lives, that He is willing for all people to be saved, to be healed, and to prosper, and that God loves all people and wants all people to believe in Jesus, our Savior and Lord.

Sometimes I say so much about God’s goodness that people may think I believe God is not against sin. Of course, God is against sin, because He loves us, and sin destroys the ones He loves. Sin is evil and dangerous. Sin, and sin will hurt you. Sin will destroy what matters to you most and will bring you misery.

If sin has messed up your life, don’t give up. God will help you. There is hope for anyone whose life has been damaged by the evil one. Those who have trusted Jesus to save them from their mess know the pure and patient love of Christ. We can testify that victory is available. Believe and be encouraged. You may have lost a battle or two, or many, but you can win the war, through Jesus, the captain of our salvation.

P.S. Believers cannot lose their salvation. This we may rely upon for good reason. God saves, seals, keeps, and delivers all that trust in the name of Jesus. The Father holds us securely in His hand.

______________________

Matthew 10:7-8 – The Bible (KJV) – And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

John 10:27-30 – The Bible (KJV) – My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.

Hubby Steve Dealing with Healing Period – New Hip Doing Fine – Steve Managing Process of New Hip Settling In Place – Walking – Shopping – Beginning Some Allowable Work – Cover Comes Off the Pool Table Today -

Steve Back to Work

Oh my! I left my computer to snap a photo of Steve holding the dust mop and walking across the game room with it, but here is what I found! Steve says he is doing allowable work because he has not violated any of the rules concerning his hip. As I study the photo, I see that his leg is in a legal position according to the rules. I suppose that his movements to achieve this posture were also within legal limits.

Although my hubby has had to deal with some pain and inconvenience, he is grateful for a very good outcome so far. He is expecting the best and so am I. God is good. We have experienced God’s goodness so much in our lives that we expect his love and grace for the completion of his hip replacement.

Pool Table Cover OffToday the cover comes off the pool table. We have not played pool since a few weeks before surgery. This is a special day! Now he will dust the billiard balls. Steve says he’s ready to play!

Again, thank you to those who have prayed for us and to all that have wished us the best. We appreciate all of you very much. Blessings to you…

Jesus Reversed the Curse – He Satisfied Justice and Brought Mercy by His Finished Work on the Cross – Mercy and Truth Are Met Together – Righteousness and Peace Have Kissed Each Other -

 

imagePsalm 85 – The Bible (KJV) – (Prophetic psalm – Psalmist sees grace)

Lord, thou hast been favorable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob. Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah. Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger. Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease. Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations? Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation.

I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly. Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land. Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven. Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase. Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.

Stuffed Meatloaf – Biscuits Made Good Stuffing for Meatloaf – I Had Fun Making This Meatloaf Different than the One Before -

Stuffed Meatloaf 4Last night I baked biscuits using gluten-free flour. Today I used the leftover biscuits to make stuffing. I baked the stuffing inside the meatloaf, so I’m calling it stuffed meatloaf.

BiscuitI took the two biscuits I had left. One of them was this beautiful biscuit you see. The other was the biscuit made from the scraps of dough.

(Do you use the dough scraps to make more biscuits or do you toss away the scraps? I carefully gathered the scraps and tenderly patted them into another round of biscuit dough. I cut out one imperfect biscuit, but I still had more scraps, which I made into a truly ugly biscuit.)

I crumbled the truly ugly biscuit and the beautiful biscuit. I used a little of the crumbs for meatloaf and the rest of the crumbs for stuffing.

Stuffed Meatloaf 1I chopped onion and celery and added some of the onion to the ground beef and the rest I added to the crumbs I had set aside for the stuffing.

I added spices to the meatloaf, oregano and basil, salt, pepper, one egg, and Worcestershire sauce. I mixed it all together and patted half of the meat into the meatloaf pan, building up the sides a little to make a space to tuck in the stuffing.

Stuffed Meatloaf 2I melted about 1/4 cup of butter in a sauce pan and added the rest of the chopped onion and all of the chopped celery. I simmered them in the butter at a medium low heat until the onions were translucent.

Then, I added spices to the stuffing, rosemary, sage, parsley, onion powder, salt, and pepper and stirred them together. Then I added the contents of the saucepan to the mixture, stirring them into the stuffing. The stuffing needed about 1-1/2 eggs, so I added one whole egg and the yolk of another egg to the stuffing. I tossed the white of the second egg into the meatloaf. (I hate throwing food away, but sometimes one must, but not this time.) I wanted the stuffing to be just moist with the egg, not too sloppy.

Stuffed Meatloaf 3After mixing the stuffing ingredients well, I poured it into the space I had made in the meatloaf. Next, I covered the stuffing with the rest of the ground beef meatloaf mixture. I baked it at 350 degrees about 45 minutes.

My stuffed meatloaf turned out very well, indeed. If it hadn’t, I would have wished I’d baked the meatloaf in one pan and the stuffing in another. I could have done that but it would not have been as much fun.

Biscuits – Jules All-purpose Gluten-free flour – Substituted for Wheat Flour – Recipe Development in Progress – Canned Biscuits Cannot Compare with Homemade Biscuits – Steve Ate His with Peanut Butter and Peach Jelly – Interesting – Butter and Honey for Me – I’m So Predictable -

Biscuit

I’m a carbohydrate-loving woman. Alas! My downfall from being thin and wispy. Yet, I keep dieting in between my carbohydrate delights.

Life without wheat gluten is bearable if it doesn’t mean life totally without bread, pancakes, noodles, and biscuits. I am thriving. Notice that I did not include cakes or pastries, which are filled with sugar. These I make a sincere effort to avoid. Zucchini bread was delicious, but it contained a huge amount of sugar. I will not bake another one for a long time. Too much sugar is scarier than too many carbohydrates. However, too many carbohydrates can imitate the effects of too much sugar, so even though I like carbohydrates, I intend not to overindulge in them.

I admire those who completely subtract carbs from their diets to stay healthy and trim. I’m not one of them. YET. Maybe never. Maybe soon.

In the meantime, I am enjoying this biscuit!

Good Morning, Great Big Beautiful Word! God Loves You All and Wants to Bless You -

Boy Smelling Daisy

John 3:16 – The Bible (KJV) – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 16:33 – The Bible (KJV) – These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Language is how we communicate. Translations from one language to another can be complex. Also, words may have more than one meaning in any language, for instance, notice two uses of the word world in the above scriptures:

John 3:16 – world – the whole body of living persons -

John 16:33 – world – the universe especially when it is understood as an ordered system -

God loves people, as in John 3:16.

The world system is the cosmos, or the complicated situations in which we live, as referred to in John 16:33. Jesus has overcome the world systems and troubles that bind us.

We Could Have Had a Fire during the Night But Disaster Was Avoided – Hot Water Heater Malfunctioned – Saved by Rinsing One More Glass before Bedtime -

 

Glass Saved the DayReady to retire for the evening, I checked out the kitchen. The dishwasher was loaded. I needed only turn it on to wash the dishes while we slept. I noticed a glass and decided to rinse it off and put it in the dishwasher with the others. This glass, clean and sparkling, may have saved us from a fire.

When I picked up the glass and turned on the hot water to rinse it before putting in the dishwasher, I noticed the the water was unusually hot. I almost dismissed it, but decided to turn it on again. The water was hot enough to burn my hands. This was not right, so I brought it to Steve’s attention.

First Steve said he’d check it out in the morning, but he thought it over, turned around, and headed for the front door. He told me to get a flashlight. We went outside in the dark, and Steve flipped the breaker to turn off the electricity to the hot water heater.

In the morning Steve took the cover off the controls on the hot water heater and saw that it needed repair or replacement. We replaced it. The installer told us we probably would have had a fire during the night if Steve had not disconnected it last night.

Since Steve had his hip replacement surgery, we have experienced several challenges, but we will not complain. His hip is healing beautifully. The hot water heater was bound to fail eventually. It was sixteen years old. All is well. We are grateful to God for so many blessings we cannot count them.

Reading Books – Learning about Ministries in Foreign Lands – Where Believers Match the Description Given of Us in Mark 16:17-20 – And Reading about Believers In the USA Walking in New Covenant Power and Authority – Speaking Words that Change Lives – I Am Challenged -

White Flower near Christian CrossMark 16:17-20 – The Bible (KJV) – And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;  They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

Matthew 4:23-25 – The Bible (KJV) – And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them. And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.

1 Peter 2:24 – The Bible (KJV) – Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Isaiah 53:4-5 – The Bible (KJV) – Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Acts 4:29-31 – The Bible (KJV) – And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, by stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

King James Version (KJV)

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
