As a Mom, couldn’t you use a good laugh?
Inspired by the endearing, true-to-life movie MOMS’ NIGHT OUT, comedian Kerri Pomarolli has created this light, yet inspiring devotional that will definitely make you laugh, but will also help you discover that indeed you are not alone, and that God’s gracious provision of love and faithfulness is at work in your life and of your loved ones.
Whether you’re running full-speed-ahead or disappointed that it’s Monday (again), you’ll find joy in these devotions where Kerri shares hilarious stories and insights on daily life. Messy homes, messy kids, lost pets, never ending casseroles, forgetful husbands, and the desire to just take a long bath… This world can be a funny place, and these stories are bound to prove it. Read a devotion to brighten your morning, or catch a few words to make you smile before bed. There’s never a bad time for a good laugh, and as a Mom, you need a Moms' Night Out and Other Things I Miss: Devotions To Help You Survive.
Anne Baxter Campbell:Anne Baxter Campbell is a writer with a deep love of God, family, and friends. She also has an overwhelming fascination with the Bible and biblical history that would surprise her history teachers who could tell this girl wasn't exactly enthused about anything other than the present. Add to that a basically romantic bent, and there you go.
While many people cook because of obligations, sometimes cooking can become an esoteric process just like writing, exercise or meditation. If you believe you are a bad cook, maybe you just haven't allowed yourself the freedom to use your kitchen to your advantage. Think back to a time when you had the freedom to create something without constraints and how good it felt. Instead of looking at your kitchen activities as obligations how about seeing it as the lab of yoru Mad Chef-tist self!
While working oh my graduate studies there were times I felt uncertain of my abilities and cooking helped me to feel more confident about me. I began to see cooking as a lovely reprieve from the rest of my life, but only when I was in control of the choices. If you always cook the same thing every week, maybe it's time to bust free of your mind-numbing habits.
Try making old time traditional foods that most people do not make from scratch anymore without fancy appliances etc. Attempt recipes that poeple may consider difficult, just be sure not to attach to the outcome--don't worry how it looks or works out the first time you do it. Here are some suggestions:
Pie from scratch (including the crust)
Take some time to look through recipe books or recipes online and make a date with yourself to try soemthing new!
Today we have special guest Nina M. who will share with us many cooking tips and some wonderful recipes. She has catered affairs and delighted people for years! She can answer many of your cooking questions too!
Bring your imagination and let's cook some vittles
When & why I started meal planning
Used to work in theatre during university and had limited availability during the weekdays and nights
Was tired of eating rubbish when I got home late at night from work
Fast food (even healthy salads and sandwiches) were expensive
When living alone, or cooking for one, organisation is important. If you make things in bulk and freeze them then it’s cheaper and there is less wastage
How to put together a plan
Before you start with your meal plan, it really helps to sit down and check when you or your family have busy days/evenings, as this will help determine what you will be cooking or if you even need to cook
Doing your first plan will take a little time as you’ve got to create your template and spend time finding recipes, but the more you do, the easier it gets
I start off in Excel using a template I’ve created. I have the days running vertically along the column on the left on the screen and the different meals running horizontally across the top (heading up each column)
E.g. it will read Monday – Breakfast, Morning Snack, Lunch, Afternoon Snack, Dinner
I then start to fill in the meals for each day. On busy days, I’ll either have leftovers from earlier on in the week (things like chilli or casseroles tend to make 4 portions) or do something quick and easy like a stir fry. On days when I have more time, I’ll do something a little more adventurous and time consuming
I use a combination of tried and tested healthy recipes and seek inspiration from cookery books, blogs and websites
Usually I have the same thing for a couple of meals so remember you don’t have to cook something new every day!
Hungarians are especially passionate about their meat stews, casseroles, steaks, roasted pork, beef, poultry, lamb or game. The mixing of different varieties of meat is a traditional feature of the Hungarian cuisine. Goulash, stuffed peppers, stuffed cabbages or Fatanyeros (Hungarian mixed grill on wooden platter) can combine beef and pork, and sometimes mutton. Goulash is a stew with more gravy or a soup using meat with bones, paprika, caraway, vegetables and potato or different tiny dumplings or pasta simmered along with the meat. Other famous Hungarian meat stews would be paprikas, a paprika stew, meat simmered in thick creamy paprika gravy and porkolt, a Hungarian stew with boneless meat (usually beef or pork), onion, and sweet paprika powder, both served with nokedli (small dumplings). In old fashioned dishes, fruits like plums and apricots are cooked with meat or in piquant sauces/stuffings for game, roasts and other cuts.

It isn't easy constantly trying to be exciting and interesting for your partner in life. Some days, you just want to wear old flannel PJs or perhaps you don't feel like brushing your teeth before bed and would rather curl up with a book or professional wrestling than with your spouse. Some days in a relationship are comfortable boring, and slightly gross, like tuna noodle casserole, which The Lady will be serving to Larry this evening. Tune-in as the sparks don't fly.
