Thanks be to God, Father, Son and Spirit, for the abundance of good things he pours on His children.
We are but few, but His blessings are many.

For the fruits of His creation, thanks be to God!
For the plowing, sowing, reaping,
silent growth while we are sleeping...
Future needs in Earth's safe-keeping!
Thanks be to God!
Of various sizes..
Thank you God,
for delicious Christmas carrots!

I am slowly winning the kids over to the weird stuff in my kitchen...
Yesterday- cinnamon rolls!
Seth thought it was SO cool to help me at each step-
beginning with grinding the wheat seed!
He got to watch our super-awesome machine do the kneading for us, too.
(That was my favorite part!)
Eldon ate the frosting!
She declared them worth the wait! :)

Meet some of my new kitchen friends!
Raw can sugar, shallots, wheat seed, extra virgin olive oil, natural peanut better, a pepper grinder, apple cider vinegar...
This is the fruit of my vague feeling, "We really should start eating healthier..."
combined with Josh's "go big or go home!" energy!
We are aiming for a more Mediterranean kind of a diet (plus peanut butter and a few other things!)
We are not so much trying to lose weight (though that would be fine!) We are trying to eat better and maybe break a few addictions (AH, junk carbs! Sugar!)
I'll let you know how it goes! :)
