Veg Bad Challenge Week 3


I'm taking the Veg Bad Challenge



We had an okay week as far as veg goes.  Poor Hannah woofed down a tremendous amount of Green Beans Greek Style.  Needless to say, she thought they were tasty and I even enjoyed what little bit was leftover.  But the recipe that I'm sharing for this week is Cobb Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette.  I must say that I don't really know if it's kid friendly, because we had it on the day that Hannah didn't eat a single thing, but Joel and I really enjoyed it.

Cobb Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette

lettuce (bibb or romaine, just about any kind will work)
chicken breast
couple slices bacon
hard boiled eggs
avocado (if in season)
cucumber
cheese (shredded or cubed)

Tear up the lettuce and put on a plate.  Cook bacon in a pan.  After bacon is cooked, cook the chicken breast in the same pan the bacon cooked in.  This adds a ton of flavor. Dice cooked chicken, place on bed of greens along with crumbled bacon, chopped egg, sliced avocado, sliced cucumber and cheese

For Dressing: (adapted from this recipe)

12 oz jar of roasted red peppers in water
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tbsp honey
salt and pepper to taste

mix everything up in a blender.  Pour over salad and chow down

  2. Thanks for dropping by Alicia! I contemplated calling it garbage salad versus Cobb, but I think it's close enough to a real one to bear the name. Hope you enjoy!

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

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.

When Through Deep Waters by Rachelle Dekker

When Through Deep Waters is Rachelle Dekker's fourth book, the first three a dystopian trilogy. I was excited to see what other stories she had for us. Fortunately, this one does not disappoint.

Alicen has suffered a tragic loss and is trying to find her way through the grief. She lands in the family vacation home of her childhood friend. The idyllic location reminds her of all the hope she had for her life as a child and forces her to deal with many different disappointments in her life including the life and death of her beloved grandmother.

Here's what I love about the book, one, it's an old-school Frank Peretti style spiritual warfare book in that Alicen is an ordinary person that is struggling with spiritual forces. Two, it's a fiction book that made me want to get out my journal and explore some thoughts that bubbled up about myself! Third, God wins in the end and it doesn't look like the normal everyone desires. Fourth, straight up scripture usage that does…
