A Dollop of Sour Cream

I'm not much into spicy food. I have recently discovered that if a meal is just a tad too spicy for me, I can put sour cream on top and make it not just palatable, but wonderful. This blog is devoted to doing the same for life.



The Common Room: Love and Biscuits in the Time of Youth

The Common Room: Love and Biscuits in the Time of Youth

*wry* My husband is exactly the opposite.

I don't think I'd ever had homemade biscuits before I got married. But my husbands' mother's stew recipe (GOOD and fairly easy to make) is made over homemade biscuits! Aigh. The ones out of the can definitely WON't do.

So... I've learned to make biscuits. They are a HUGE mess but not nearly so hard as they seemed before I tried. And my husband richly appreciates every time I do it!

Oh and this makes me remember so many things about my Boaz that I appreciate. My husband remembers things that make me ready to throw up and accomodates for them. Like peanut butter kisses. He loves peanut butter. So do I. But the smell of it on his breath is too much for me (makes me wonder if these get worse when pregnant?) So when he's had peanut butter he'll kiss me or something. And he doesn't seem to ever forget -- I forget more than he does! And the smell of raw chicken boiling also made me nauseous once so he always cooks it with herbs, and almost always does the cooking of chicken himself so I don't have to be in the kitchen with it! And I have even told him that I think that was a one-time that day thing.

Oh Jenni! Pray for us. Two more days and I'll be able to use the first test we got from you.


Retrospectives on 9/11

I have attached a link to the blog entry I wrote the first anniversary of 9/11. It has details I don't remember anymore so just linking to it is best I think now.

More on conversions at gunpoint

This is disappointing.

If the blurb at this link is correct, it was a Christian minister that encouraged the captors to get the captives to convert to Islam as a way of saving face and getting them to let the guys go.


iDi: Current & Upcoming Classes

iDi: Current & Upcoming Classes

Just a note for anyone interested that idi Bible College, the college run by my church, is offering a Wednesday night class about Francis Schaeffer. Unfortunately, I can't take it because I need to take other courses for my degree. But he's a great author and the college is very affordable. I love the classes I have taken and highly recommend them for local folks.
