IMG_3958

Ingredients:

Chicken

Celery Diced

Craisins

Garlic Salt & Cracked Pepper

Mayonaise & Dijon Mustard

Instructions:

Take the meat from a roasted chicken, you can either roast it yourself, or purchase one that has already been roasted from your local grocery store. Dice the meat into 1/4″ chunks. Add two stalks of celery diced and 1/2 cup of Craisins (You can add more if you like) Add 1/2 cup of mayonaise and 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard. Mix thoroughly and salt and pepper to taste. If you like your chicken salad a little creamier, you can add more mayonaise. Before serving, I like to add cashews or almonds. You can serve this over lettuce as a salad, on toast, or with crackers.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pie crust
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 8 marinated artichokes, chopped
  • 10 ounces frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed of all excess liquid
  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ cup fresh goat cheese
  • Salt and black pepper

Procedures:

Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat to 400°F. Roll out pie dough and place in a 9.5-inch frypan. Gently prick pie dough all over with a fork making sure that you don’t fully puncture the dough. Cover with foil, weight down with pie weights. Place in the oven and bake until browned, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and reserve.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Add drained spinach and chopped artichokes; season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer spinach mixture to pie crust. Whisk together eggs and milk then pour over spinach mixture. Press goat cheese chunks into the quiche. Make sure everything is covered with egg mixture.

Place in the oven and bake until quiche is puffy and beginning to brown in spots, about 35 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and get the quiche out of the pan for slicing and serving.

How Are We to Be?

th-5

Matthew 5: 3-12

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which hunger and thirst for righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for rightesousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for they also persecuted the prophets which were before you.

As we reflect on this passage of scripture, we are given a list of blessings. As you examine yourself, ask yourself, are you poor in spirit? Are you mourning? Are you meek? Do you hunger and thirst for righteousness? Are you merciful? Do you have a pure heart? Are you a peacemaker? Have you been persecuted for being a Christian? This portion of scripture is referred to as the beatitudes because these are the attitudes that we should have or BE. The good news is that we don’t have to try to do these on our own… if we were to try, we would ultimately fall short. Rather, these are the attitudes that God transforms in our hearts as we follow after Him. As believers, there will be times when we will mourn: and in those times, He will comfort us. When we have a pure heart, we will see God even more clearly. Reflect on His plan for you, rest knowing that He will never fail, He will always be there holding you up.
