Sunday Morning - Proverbs 31:30


"Charm is deceptive,
and beauty is fleeting,
but a woman who fears the Lord
is to be praised."
Proverbs 31:30

God 
has a way of transforming hearts
and it always shows!

Blessings!

Sautéed Apples


Crunch Time Meal

My brother  once said I would be a great short-order cook 
because I'm pretty speedy when it comes to putting a meal on the table.

For instance, this meal took 15 minutes tops, and it was on the table ready to enjoy.

Sautéed Apples

 Two Small Gala Apples
 (that's what I had, but any kind will work)
2 Tablespoons - Dried Cranberries
2 Tablespoons - Chopped Walnuts
1 Teaspoon - Olive Oil
(serves two)

Heat the olive oil then add diced apples.
(I used my mother's little iron skillet ... It's perfect for making meals for two. )

Sauté the apples for a minute or two
add in the dried cranberries and walnuts.
Continue to sauté until the apples are tender.

This like most of my recipes isn't set in stone.
(I tend to use whatever is on hand so things do get switched up from time to time.)


SMELLED YUMMY!

I paired the apples with some lettuce, making a simple Harvest Salad
Seeds of Change Quonia & Brown Rice (took 90 seconds to prepare)
and a small grilled pork chop. (done in minutes)

Nothing fancy but it was delicious!


 Seriously, we are trying our best to eat healthily but 
it definitely takes a commitment to prepare home-cooked meals. 
All I can say is, we're trying.

Not even sure how long we'd had that quinoa before actually using it.
LOL

Do you have any amazing tips for us?


Blessings,

We Just Added The Turkey


We've been enjoying this autumn display since early September,
so for Thanksgiving, we just added a turkey.

The Turkey

I have been holding on to that turkey print 
since my college days, and this is the
very first time I've used it.

Now, it's an antique! But, more importantly, it's a memory.


This Thanksgiving display holds so many memories of
Thrifting ... Gifting ... Gathering 

My last find was the framed print of "The Gleaners".
I picked it up when I was spending an afternoon with my daughter.

Oh, how I LOVED that day!

See what I mean about memories.

I have a feeling it's that way for you too.

Blessings!
