Food For the Soul

I really need to get my camera out of my beach bag and put it back into the kitchen where it belongs! I don't have any pictures to post, and I feel as if it's been forever since I last put some up!.... oh well, so today food for the soul will take the place of food pics then! :)

Isa 40:21-31
Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been declared to you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
It is He who sits above the vault of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
He [it is] who reduces rulers to nothing, Who makes the judges of the earth meaningless. Scarcely have they been planted, Scarcely have they been sown, Scarcely has their stock taken root in the earth, But He merely blows on them, and they wither, And the storm carries them away like stubble.
"To whom then will you liken Me That I should be [his] equal?" says the Holy One.
Lift up your eyes on high And see who has created these [stars], The One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of [His] power Not one [of them] is missing.
Why do you say, O Jacob, and assert, O Israel, "My way is hidden from the LORD, And the justice due me escapes the notice of my God "?
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. He gives strength to the weary, And to [him who] lacks might He increases power.
Though youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly,
Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up [with] wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.

Eph 5:1-2
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you, and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.

1Th 4:7
For God has not called us for the purpose of impurity, but in sanctification.

1Jo 2:5-6
but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.

Bring Out the Griddle!

Blueberry pancakes fresh off the griddle (boy, do I love that machine!!!).
Ecc 12:9-11
In addition to being a wise man, the Preacher also taught the people knowledge; and he pondered, searched out and arranged many proverbs. The Preacher sought to find delightful words and to write words of truth correctly. The words of wise men are like goads, and masters of [these] collections are like well-driven nails; they are given by one Shepherd.

Homemade Raspberry Frozen Yogurt

Homemade Raspberry Frozen Yogurt, yup, that what it is!
2Co 4:7
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the surpassing greatness of the power may be of God and not from ourselves...
Mic 6:8
He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God?

Baking For Vacation

I baked three of these monsters the other day to bring along on our vacation! (oatmeal and flax seed bread) :) .... And saying that, there may not be a whole lot posted the next two weeks because we'll be out of town.
Jos 1:8-9
"This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."

Psa 33:10
The LORD nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples.
Psa 33:11
The counsel of the LORD stands forever, The plans of His heart from generation to generation.

Caesar saled, Organic Beef Stroganoff, and fresh apple sause. Simple yet tasty. :)
Psa 68:19
Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, The God who is our salvation.
Jam 1:17
Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, or shifting shadow.

Cinnamon Rolls

From the Kashi web-site.

Cinnamon Rolls

1 (0.25-ounce) packet active dry yeast
1 cup warm milk, (105°f-115°f)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
4 cups all-purpose or bread flour
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add 1/2 cup sugar, melted butter, 1 teaspoon salt, eggs and flour; mix well. Dust a flat surface with a small amount of flour and knead dough into a large ball. Return to bowl and cover. Let rise for 1 hour or until dough has doubled in size.
Remove dough from bowl and roll out on a lightly floured surface until dough is 21-inches long by 16-inches wide and 1/4-inch thick.
In a small separate bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread 1/3 cup of butter evenly over surface of the dough and cover with cinnamon/brown sugar mixture. Roll dough from the top (21-inch side) to bottom edge. Cut rolled dough into 1 3/4-inch slices and place 6 at a time on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until light brown.
While rolls are baking, combine remaining butter, powdered sugar, cream cheese, vanilla and salt. Beat with an electric mixer until fluffy. Drizzle on hot rolls and serve.
Makes 12 rolls.
