Menu Monday 31 OCT 2011 – Daniel Fast Week 4

Posted by Hallee on Oct 31, 2011 in Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, menus & menu planning

Our church is currently observing 40 days of fasting, and Gregg and I decided that we would do a Daniel Fast. For the next few weeks, you will see a “vegan extreme” diet. We are consuming only fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and drinking only water – no sugars, honey, syrups, nor eating leavened bread. Kaylee is observing her own form of this fast and will be abstaining from the sugars and the meat – she will be consuming dairy, however. The boys will be eating our meals with us, but will have some meat and will have dairy.

For breakfast, we are making a juice in our juicer out of kale, carrots, apples, and fresh ginger root. Several good juice recipes can be found here. I’ve also been making smoothies out of mango, fresh pineapple, bananas, oatmeal, flax seed, and coconut milk. We drink one or both of them for our breakfast.

For lunches, we will be eating hummus with fresh vegetables, avocado and salsa in Ezekiell 4:9 tortillas (the only tortillas I could find with nothing in them but grains), salads, or something like unsweetened peanut butter and bananas with tortillas.

I pray that by sharing our journey with you, you will receiving a blessing from it.

Winter Squash Stuffed with Wild Rice, Toasted Pecans & Dried Cherries

I love finding a recipe that will be my new go-to recipe for entertaining. We had company for dinner, and since we’re observing a Daniel Fast, this was our main course using acorn squash. The next evening, we served a soup and had this as a side using pumpkins. The rice is amazing alone, but pared with the winter squash, it is remarkable. This would be beautiful gracing any holiday table.

Seeing the Negative Space

Posted by Hallee on Oct 27, 2011 in Parenting

Our son Scott is a remarkable boy. He remembers everything, and makes correlations and comparisons in things you wouldn’t think a 5-year-old could possibly understand. He is extremely loving and needs to touch constantly, sitting in your lap or touching your face when he’s talking to you. He is an absolute joy and a miracle from God, surviving being born 10 weeks early, weighing just 3 lbs. 5 oz. at birth, but thriving despite all of his odds.

But, there is something outside of the realm of “normal” about him.

Endurance

Posted by Hallee on Oct 26, 2011 in Life, Parenting, Raising girls, Raising teens

On Monday, Kaylee has softball conditioning for two hours and Tuesdays are horseback riding lessons. This past Monday she really worked out at softball conditioning. She was worn out Monday night. Tuesday morning she could barely move. Tuesday afternoon, I got a text from her that said that she was so sore she couldn’t walk. I texted her back and said that she still needed to go to horseback riding lessons and at least try. My thought was that her muscles would warm up once she was on the horse.

Menu Monday – 24 OCT 11 – Daniel Fast Week 3

Posted by Hallee on Oct 24, 2011 in Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of October 24th. I have some pumpkin leftover from my Winter Squash Stuffed with Wild Rice, Dried Cherries, and Roasted Pecans (the recipe will go up this week), and the boys are begging me to make pumpkin cookies.

Our church is currently observing 40 days of fasting, and Gregg and I decided that we would do a Daniel Fast. For the next few weeks, you will see a “vegan extreme” diet. We are consuming only fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and drinking only water – no sugars, honey, syrups, nor eating leavened bread.

Sunday Viewing

Posted by Hallee on Oct 21, 2011 in Christian Faith, Family, Life, Parenting, Raising boys, Raising girls, Raising teens

Our rule for Sunday viewing is this: it must be a Bible story, or about God or the Bible in some way. We have a HUGE movie selection, and a big portion of our movies are God focused, so there is no problem finding something to watch. We love it when the kids pick something that is a specific Bible story, but we’re happy with Veggie Tales or similar programming. Kaylee has several Christian themed teen appropriate movies and documentaries, and Gregg and I could watch the documentaries, video studies, and movies we have for a solid month and not put a dent in our choices.

Oven Roasted Tomato Sauce with Garlic & Basil

Posted by Hallee on Oct 19, 2011 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley, Preserving, sauces & spreads

My garden is STILL producing tomatoes. I had about 15 pounds the other day, and wanted to do something different with them, so I tried oven roasted tomato sauce.
