Veg bad

Are you a fan of Wallace and Gromit?  In their feature length movie, Wallace in trying to eat more vegetables.  And then he decides to use his hatred of vegetables to reduce rabbits desire for them.  He sits there and says "Veg bad. Veg bad." while this machine sucks his brain waves into a vat of fluffy bunnies.  Ultimately, it all fails, but I find that line quite comical. 
So today, in my efforts to prove that veg bad is not true, I'm sharing one of our favorite veg recipes.  We served this one time to someone who claimed they did not like cauliflower and they ended up enjoying it.  I have a feeling that you can use just about any vegetable in the place of cauliflower. It does not have to be fresh cauliflower, you can use frozen veg as well.  I did have something very similar to this at a local Greek restaurant that used green beans and it was delicious.  I normally just use crushed tomatoes but you can also put any canned or fresh tomato in the food processor, blender or smoosh by hand. 

Cauliflower Greek Style




Serves 4-8



1 large head of cauliflower

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium onion chopped (about 1-1 ½ cups)

2 cloves garlic minced

14-15 ounces tomato puree

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

¼ cup parsley (chopped)



Wash and separate cauliflower florets

Heat the oil in a wok (or other deep frying pan) and sauté onions. Add tomato puree, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook for about 10 minutes to reduce liquid. Add cauliflower, cook until tender (10-15 minutes) Add parsley as garnish.

Four Cups by Chris Hodges

Four Cups by Chris Hodges is a brief book based on the four cups associated with the Seder Meal. Within the Seder meal, four promises of God are celebrated. Hodges goes through the four promises and challenges the reader to live them out.

Those four promises are:
1. God will free you from oppression.
2.God will free you from slavery.
3. God will redeem you.
4. God claims you and wants to celebrate that.

My favorite was the last promise. I think that it's very rare that we get together with other Christians to celebrate the fact that we belong to God. We have plenty of parties, but often those are to mark events or the passing of time, but not often do we celebrate the fact that we get to hang out with the Holy Spirit.

Each chapter is short enough that it could be read aloud by a group and then followed with a simple prayer. It would make a nice book study for a group. Hodges also recommends using the four cups to help grow your faith community. And by growth, he means people movin…

Lent aka Spring Training

If you've been paying attention, you'll have noticed that there's less and less of me on social media. I started small with changing my password on my Facebook account so that I couldn't check it. And that quickly escalated to a downloading of my account and deletion. Like, never getting it back, it's gone, if you want one, you'll have to start over deletion. And then I just switched my time to checking my Instagram, which used to be in check until Facebook went away. And then lent started and I put all of my Instagram accounts on temporary disable. And they're probably going to stay that way until I get beyond the point of turning to my phone to see if it has anything for me in terms of entertainment and validation. Hopefully, that will be take about 40 days, give or take a few Sundays.

So, I'm hoping to use this lent period to get myself all prepped for what can be in my life. I really want to serve God with all my heart, my soul, my mind, and my body…

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.
