Something Different

It's Sunday and that means a roast dinner, but today I decided to go with something a little different. I popped my pork chop in the roasting dish as usual but I didn't have any sage and onion stuffing, and no sage to be able to make my own. So instead I chopped together the crust from sliced white bread a handful of dried apricots and rosemary leaves added a pinch of salt and blended together moistening this with a drop of boiling water and spread over the chop.
No time to par boil the potato for roasting so washed and oiled it added salt and popped beside the chop. Pre set the oven to cook for an hour and be ready for when I returned from church at 1 O'clock
In from church and stir fry chopped veg (leeks, peppers, mushrooms, baby sweetcorn and peas) ready in no time at all. Garnished the baked potato with a yoghurt and chopped apricot topping. Ate and thoroughly enjoyed, will have to do this again.


Today I am grateful to Father God for prompting me to go to church when I was really too tired and down to want to. For giving me words of encouragement not just for me but for others, and for lifting my spirits so much, that although I am tired now I feel renewed.


I found this little quiz on Mel's blog the other day and want to share it here with any of you who visit my blog but not hers. Thank you Mel

In this passage there are sixteen hidden books of the bible see how many you can find.

I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu; kept people looking so hard for facts... And for others it was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books were not capitalised. But the truth finally struck home to numbers of our readers. To others it was a real job. We want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you. Yes, there will be some really easy ones to spot. Others may require judges to help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a pastor to find one of them, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found! A little lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now, for there really are sixteen names of books of the Bible in this paragraph.

I'll reveal the answer in a day or two

That sounds like a very delicious meal, Mary! I may try it for my Boys here (though I can't eat pork myself).

I am glad you felt renewed after your outing to Church. It can seem a big effort sometimes, to go out - but obviously worth it today.

Have a lovely week. Don't let the dull old weather get you down - keep smiling.

That quiz is a killer by the way!

Thanks for the menu inspiration Mary - we tried a variant with apple, onion, sage and breadcrumbs tonight - pretty successful too!
