I am doing a new bible study over the summer at our church. It is the Beth Moore study on Revelation. I usually go with my friend Connie, but she was busy tonight. I almost didn't go since they post the videos online for makeups, but I forced myself. I am SO happy I did, this study is really opening my eyes to God's glory. The lesson was on Revelation chapters 4 and 5 and it was so powerful I am on a spiritual high! Can't wait to go back next week. Nothing is better than being filled up with Jesus.
Loved this dinner from the other night. I had a friend from Odessa ask for some squash and zucchini recipes because she has so many growing in her garden. Here is one of 4 coming your way Candy!
Fresh Squash Soup
4 slices of bacon
1 garlic clove
3 large yellow squash
1 large zucchini
4 cups chicken broth
2 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
2 cups evaporated milk (I am trying to be healthier so I got the fat free)
salt and pepper to taste
Optional: grated cheddar cheese and chopped green onions for garnish
Chop your onion, slice the squash and zucchini, and mince your garlic.
Dice the bacon.
Cook the bacon in a stock pot until browned.
Remove all but 1 Tb of bacon grease. Add onion to bacon and grease, cook until onion is translucent. Then add garlic and let is cook for one minute.
Add squash, chicken broth, cumin and oregano to pot and stir.
Simmer covered for 10 minutes.
Add evaporated milk and heat through.
Use an immersion blender or a potato masher to coarsely mash the squash. (Do not puree)
Season with salt and pepper. Mine needed quite a bit of salt because I used low sodium chicken broth.
I think chicken sandwiches are going to be my new staple. The secret is getting a good roll, I found these tasty ones at Trader Joe's....I know there isn't many Trader Joe's in Texas, but HEB has a great selection in their bakery.
Grilled Chicken SandwichesYou can put whatever your heart desires on these sandwiches, but here is what I did.
3 Chicken Breasts (I made an extra for lunch the next day)
Spinach or Lettuce (not pictured)
Seasonings (I used the spicy mix (minus the parmesan) from my Southwest Popcorn that I had pre-blended in that "hot salt" container, click here for that recipe, but you can use whatever spice blend you like)
2 tsp Frank's Red Hot
