Crockpot Ratatouille

I’d never made Ratatouille before, but my friend Jen (who has posted recipes here for me before) often does and I know her family likes it. As I was preparing the vegan menu last week for our Daniel Fast, Ratatouille came to mind and I decided to give it a go. This was an amazing recipe. The flavors are so fresh. There’s something specific about the layering of the veggies and the order in which you layer them that makes the dish so good. We served it over brown rice, but you could serve it alone, over pasta, over bread – anything, really.

Menu Monday 31 OCT 2011 – Daniel Fast Week 4

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.

Freezing Sweet Peppers

My garden is exploding with sweet peppers now. I’m getting all different colors – orange, purple, green. I can’t pick them fast enough.

The easiest way I’ve found to preserve them is to simply freeze them. The problem is, though, that they’re full of liquid. So, if you sliced them and tossed them into a freezer bag, what you’ll end up with is a big frozen ball of peppers all stuck together.

Menu Monday 10 OCT 11 – Daniel Fast Week 1

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of October 10th. Last Wednesday night at church, our pastor called for us to begin a 40-day fast.
