When You Feel Robbed of Your Private Time
I keep my eyes always on the LORD.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Psalm 16:8
If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm. Psalm 37:23
Have you ever heard, “in the South they fry EVERYTHING?” Well, I don’t think that is particularly true, after all, I have never seen a dill pickle fried, oh, wait a minute, yes I have. Well, then I have never seen a snicker’s bar fried, oh … yes I have. Okay, okay, there must be something we don’t fry — oh, forget it. Ya know, in the south we don’t just fry turkeys for Christmas but Sweet Potatoes too! At our house we eat a lot of sweet potatoes, and they just don’t get much better than this.
Before you say “frying is too fattening” take a look at this recipe. Only about 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter will cook a big batch of potatoes. A little cinnamon sprinkled in the beginning and a little brown sugar in the end …. they are irresistible! And just in case you missed it, eating such healthy potatoes definitely means you can end the meal with … Walnut Fudge Pie?
Kitchen blessings and happy cooking!
