Organizing the Boys’ Room

I’ve been looking for a way to organize the boys’ toys. What we were using was a big Rubbermaid bin. But it was so deep that for Jeb to even be able to access any toy that wasn’t on top, we had to lay it on its side. They also didn’t even know what was in it – so they never played with anything.

In our church nursery, there are two shelves that are made from cubes that have cloth drawers. I’ve always admired how the shelves look, but I didn’t think too much about them until my first Sunday working the nursery. I discovered that those cubes hold an amazing amount of stuff!

Creation: Abiogenesis Part III

I explained the Darwinist belief in spontaneous generation packaged for textbooks as abiogenesis, and recently re-packaged and re-branded and re-labeled to be called biopoiesis, until a new and improved authoritatively scientific sounding word replaces that one. It means, in a nutshell, that Darwinists preach about life coming from non-life.

Amazing Butternut Squash Bisque

I watched a Top Chef one season, and late in the season toward the finals or maybe in the finals, one of the contestants made a butternut squash soup that had the judges wanting to lick their bowls. It seemed odd to me that something that should be as simple as a butternut squash soup, could illicit such a response from a group of people who taste amazing food all the time. It sent me on a quest to find a recipe that good, something that would make me sad the bowl was empty when I was finished. I’ve found that recipe, and I’ve found that secret ingredient that makes it all the better. I hope this bisque is as amazing for you as it was for me.

Mirepoix [mir-pwah]

In bear bones basic, a mirepoix is onions, carrots, and celery. It is typically used as a base for French soups. Bisque is a French soup, so it stands to reason that the base is going to be a mirepoix.

Martha and Mary

A story in the Bible that has always stood out to me has been the story of Mary and Martha. Mary and Martha were sisters and hosted Jesus and his disciples in their home. In Luke 10:38-42, we read that while Martha prepared the meal and served it, her sister Mary sat at Jesus’ feet and listened to him teach. Martha complained to Jesus that her sister was not helping her, and Jesus gently chastised her because Mary was not wrong in wanting to listen to Jesus’ teaching.

Taco Meat

This is a wonderful base recipe to make anything from tacos to burritos to taco salad to nachos. It’s flavorful, and you can control the level of spice and seasoning to suit your own tastes.
