As I was doing research for purchasing my grain mill, I read all sorts of “don’t do’s.” One of them was don’t try to grind anything that was too hard, including popcorn. But, when I got my grain mill (a NutriMill) the booklet that came with the machine said, “Popcorn will make the best cornmeal you’ve ever tasted.”

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of September 13th. This is my first week with my new schedule, so I will be doing all of my baking on Monday. My husband has requested Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Cookies. I also may try my hand at carrot cake – something I have never made before but something I’ve always wanted to try. A friend of mine posted on her Facebook a chocolate chip whole wheat pumpkin muffin recipe and said it was delicious. I have the rest of last year’s pumpkin in the freezer still, and pumpkins growing in the garden that will be used to replace the stash, so I need to do some pumpkin baking. I think chocolate chip pumpkin muffins is a brilliant use of my supply.Pin It
Must evolutionary science, from time to time, simply fake evidence, commit fraud, perpetrate hoaxes — lie? Why is that? Why stage so-called evidence when none exists? Why fill in the blanks of all of the unknowns with pure speculation? Why lie? Why perpetrate fraud? Why commit hoaxes?Pin It
I had my day and my week planned down to the minute. My home ran like a well oiled machine. Things would interrupt that smooth operation — an out of town trip, the early stages of garden growing when you have to be outside tending the garden constantly, a night with no sleep and a cranky child — but for the most part, it was all good. For three years I excelled at the housekeeping part of homemaking.
At the BINGO hall is a concession stand that sells the typical fare – mostly soy hamburgers on white bread, pork hotdogs, chips with nacho cheese, frozen “pizza logs” reheated in a microwave, etc. Consequently, when I get home from the soup kitchen, I usually make a big dinner and take it to feed to the volunteers.
I’ll admit that I have not yet made this dish. However, it sounds fantastic and it is more of a “when I add it to the menu” kind of thing rather than an “if I add it to the menu.” This would be an amazing brunch or lunch dish, a perfect potluck change from the normal pot of country beans, or the base for a vegetarian dinner. It is almost limitless as a dish. I cannot wait to try it.Pin It
When I’m in my kitchen, I usually have a radio station playing that has a daily lineup of preachers and teachers — David Jeremiah, Alistair Begg, Focus on the Family, some local churches — I enjoy listening to the sermons and conversations. When I’m not listening to that, I’ll have the radio on K-Love, which plays contemporary Christian music. I enjoy many of the songs and love the message in most of the songs.
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of September 6th. As far as desserts go, my daughter is hungry for a pumpkin pie. I think I’ll also make some sort of cookie – but I haven’t decided what yet. Maybe chocolate chocolate chip.Pin It
“Skull fragment may not be human”, announced the Knoxville News-Sentinel. The Daily Telegraph, an Australian newspaper, carried the story of the latest bone hoax with the much more humorous (pardon the pun) headline: “ASS TAKEN FOR MAN.”Pin It
