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

has a way of transforming hearts
and it always shows!

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.)


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.

Do you have any amazing tips for us?

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.

Sunday Morning - Deuteronomy 3:24

'O Lord God, you have only begun 
to show your servant your greatness 
and your mighty hand. For what god 
is there in heaven or on earth 
who can do such works and 
mighty acts as yours? 
- Deuteronomy 3:24

 - What I learned this week - 

Prayer is the bridge 
between your panic attack and peace 

There is NO peace like the peace He gives. NONE

Old-Fashioned Beef Stew


It's been cold and rainy here and the last thing 
Buzz said before we went to bed last night was - 
"Let's make stew tomorrow."

This is the basic recipe we've modified from both of our moms.

- something you need to know - 
it changes a little bit each time we make it.
It all depends on what we have on hand.

The flavor punch from this stew comes from that little bay leaf ... it's always a must!

Sometimes we use BIG CHUNKY pieces, 
but today's version - small bite-size pieces.

Plenty for us and Plenty to share.

Welcome November/Copycat

The transition from October to November
is pretty simple at our house.

Autumn is our theme all the way up to Thanksgiving.
Our neighborhood  👻  no trick or treating here
we skip Halloween.

For November though, Buzz spotted something on
 Pinterest that inspired him.

Soooo - he promptly did a copycat version. 
Do you ever do that?

I really like his version ... do you?

November, we're going to enjoy you to the fullest
Deo volente.
