Weekend Cooking Creativity

It’s true, I’m not a big cooker but this weekend I got inspired to make something new.  First, I made a yummy pizza!  It was made with fresh garlic and alfredo sauce, topped off with roma tomatoes, zuchinni,chicken, ricotta and mozerella cheese.  While it tasted divine, it would not be on the low-fat list. It also doesn’t look the prettiest in the picture!

After that, I made halloween cupcakes.  I thought it would be good to give to my neighbors and maybe meet some of them.

Weekend Outing

I’m so going to see this movie this weekend!  I’m a sucker for those time period pieces and especially when Kierra Knightly plays the star.

Where I’d Rather Be….

I’d rather be in Paris in front of this site……instead of at work….=)

My Cup of Comfort for the Day

God’s grace does not leave us. Else, we would have sunk, if he had not held us up. “

A Memory of India

Today, as I continue to be unpacking boxes every weekend from the move, I came across a photo I took years ago when I ventured to the country of India.  I’ve always loved this photo of a random woman in a village I visited.  The joy on her face is unforgettable.  I remember feeling helpless to give anything to  such an individual who lived in such simplicity that I could never fathom. 

Green Pizza?

As many of you know, I believe in the power of being responsible stewards of God’s creation.  So, I am excited about a new pizza place that will be coming to all places…..Clovis!  It is made with organic ingredients and supports the preservation of the earth through its practice.  Check Pizza Fusion out!  I have yet to taste it but I’m sure it will be good.

My own Secret Garden

Ok so not really…..it’s not a secret…..but many summer evenings I have enjoyed my parents courtyard garden.  I also enjoyed it today as the weather was fabulous today!  It was God’s relieving reminder to me that fall is right around the corner.  Moving back here I remember the season changes that I loved growing up.  I anticipate them with gladness. I am so excited for the sizzling hot summers to be days of my past!
