Hello and welcome back! I’m talking to myself with the welcome back part because you all have been right where you are supposed to be, and I’m the one who has been absent. A friend told me last week that she missed my posts, and I promised her I’d get on the ball, so here I am.
I have to admit that it’s not because I’ve been super busy that I haven’t posted, it’s more like I’ve been in a rut. Has this ever happened to you? I think sometimes as we go on about our lives it’s easy for it to happen. Anyway, if you feel like sharing with me a “rut” you’ve come out of, I’d love to hear about it.
I have to share with you a way to make s’mores that’s got to be the easiest way ever to make them. With all the Easter candy in the stores, some of it always makes its way in my grocery cart. I always seem to find a carton of those Zachary chocolate covered marshmallow eggs. They are really cheap, and if you like a chocolate-marshmallow fix, you can’t beat them. I was going to eat one after lunch yesterday, and then it hit me to try putting one between a couple graham cracker squares and pop it in the microwave for about 10 seconds. I did just that, and delicious is all I can say…well a little sticky too.
I’ve been wanting to add some other aspects to my posts that I hoped would be helpful and recipes was one, so let’s count that new way to make s’mores as the first. I know- wow, right? Well, you gotta start somewhere!
I’d also like to start sharing some things that I’ve found to be time savers as well as other ideas along those lines. Something that I do that saves me time and effort a day or two later, has got to do with cooking a little extra of something, like meat for instance, that I’m already cooking. When I pick out a roast to buy, I always try to get one as big as I can find. Now if you have a good sized family, this isn’t going to work as well for you. I cook the roast and then knowing I’ll have leftovers, I think of what I can make with them a couple days later. I do this with side dishes frequently as well and then when it’s time to make a meal, if even one dish is waiting to be used, it really seems to help cut down on time spent cooking. Who couldn’t use a little extra help at meal time?
Easter is upon us and I trust you find this a special time of the year. Millions of people buy Easter candy, decorations, etc., without giving a second thought as to why we have this holiday. For the believer, Easter is the time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord.
In the Bible, Luke 24:6 says “He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,” and verse 7 in Jesus’ own words, “The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.” Jesus knew what was coming but died willingly for you and for me. Believing that Christ died for you and also in His resurrection is a wonderful way to start a relationship with Christ if you don’t already have one. I would be glad to help you in any way regarding this; just let me know.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and remember God freely gave His Son for us and freely gives His love to us, even when we don’t deserve it. What a tremendous blessing that is!
Until Next Time, God Bless
