Fried Cauliflower Rice

Fried Cauliflower Rice

Fried Cauliflower Rice I was intrigued. Not sure whether many know this, but last week I made a discovery: cauliflower can be finely grated to be used as a rice substitute. Do you know what this means? It means fried rice with all the flavor and not a morsel of guilt. I don’t actually make fried rice as a general rule. But this was inspirational . . . I had to try it. Because I’m in the doghouse when it comes to many of the foods I’ve always enjoyed; food sensitivities, compromised health, high...

Brittany, Kara, Jahi, and the Right to Live

Posted by on Oct 10, 2014 in On Second Thought | 0 comments

Brittany, Kara, Jahi, and the Right to Live I’m not actually feeling that articulate at the moment . . . yet this week I’ve read with interest the stories of two engaging, courageous, and, sadly, suffering women. One of the women, in telling her story, shares of her faith; the other does not. Each piece is dotted with photos of beautiful people, and of smiling faces–hinting of better times. Each woman is facing the unthinkable: saying goodbye to loved-ones, knowing they’ll soon be...

A PVC Pipe Feed Trough

A PVC Pipe Feed Trough

A PVC Pipe Feed Trough A couple days ago I noticed an old piece of pvc pipe laying around. It was about 8-inches in diameter, and when I saw it my thinking wheels started spinning. I’ve needed a feeder of some sort to hold kitchen scraps for the girls forever. I figured I could cut the pipe into two nice long halves, plug the ends, and make some sort of short stand for it. So, on this gorgeous fall afternoon while Brian and I were driving home from picking up a truckload of chicken feed, I mentioned my idea to...

He’s Still There

He’s Still There

He’s Still There Seems like I’ve been a little preoccupied with sunset pictures lately. I’ll admit, I’m pretty smitten with them, and of the star of the show–the sun. It wouldn’t be possible to come face to face with it; one would be incinerated before ever reaching its surface. At its core, the temperature is said to reach 27 million degrees F. Um, I have no reference point for imaging how hot that is, yet we depend on this celestial body, whose light and heat are only about an...

Strangely Out Of Place

Strangely Out Of Place And I say, Perished is my strength and my expectation from the LORD. The memory of my suffering and homelessness is bitterness and poison. My soul has them continually in remembrance and is bowed down within me. But this I recall and therefore have I hope and expectation: Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, says my inner self; therefore will I hope and...

Summer Salsa

Summer Salsa (must post picture!) I’ve got this neighbor…and she just loves this salsa! And her tomato harvest runneth over. So, for you dear neighborly friend, I present my favorite canned salsa recipe. Salsa (adjust heat–pepper usage–to preference) 6 cups chopped, cored and peeled tomatoes (a “Victorio” makes this quick work) 5 cups seeded bell peppers (green and yellow make for pretty contrast) 5 cups chopped onions 2 1/2 cups chopped and seed hot peppers (a mixture of jalapeno,...

Do You Know What’s Beyond You?

Do You Know What’s Beyond You?

Do You Know What’s Beyond You? Do you know that feeling you get when you behold a stunning sunset? Do you know the overwhelming joy of coddling your newborn child? Have you known the exultation of true love? These are but a few of the earthly glories that offer us glimpses of heaven. Perhaps you also know the wounds of a broken childhood, or the loss of a loved one; maybe you’ve agonized as someone you’ve loved suffered unspeakably. Reminders–these and so many more–that while the...

German Chocolate Caramel Brownies

German Chocolate Caramel Brownies

German Chocolate Caramel Brownies Yup, you caught me. I cut ‘em while they were still piping hot. Of course they’re a gooey mess. Of course I couldn’t wait; they’re  irresistible. How irresistible you ask? Enough that four pans of these gooey, decadent bars were once  baked in the Fisher kitchen and then allegedly FedEx’d to a birthday boy in Ohio. Overnight. Except for unwrapping an entire package of caramels, this version of brownies goes together quickly. If you have kids, they make...

Buckwheat Waffles
