Galatians 5:25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.
The best synonym for self-control is “discipline.” Interesting word self-control. We use it often but rarely analyze it, even when we come across it in the Bible. Self-control means “inner strength.” The fruit of the Spirit is self-control. Self-control frees us from slavery. Self-control stops bad habits. It checks us. It halts us. When it comes to retaliation, self-control restrains us. Without it, we gear up to get even. (thoughts by Charles Swindoll)
Recently we were gathered for a family wedding and as often happens conversation turned to food and favorite recipes. In our family “Monkey Bread” has been a favorite breakfast treat for years. The first time I made this after my husband and I were married I waited anxiously for him to say how he liked it. He ate up a hefty portion, but didn’t say anything. Finally, I couldn’t stand it any longer and I said, “well, what do you think?” He smiled and said, “I think you should keep practicing.” As is his nature, he was trying to be cute and tell me he wanted me to make it often, but of course I got indignant and said “practice??!!! – this monkey bread is perfect!” To this day he will ask me to put in some “practice time” and make monkey bread – and I’ve been practicing ever since. 🙂 He says this blog should really be named “The Sensitive Cook”!
This is so darn easy and your family will LOVE it!

I have not had a chance yet…football season has begun so we are spending a lot of time doing football related things. Whew! I may pick up the ingredients tomorrow morning after i drop Riley off at work though and make it for the rest of the family! 🙂
Miss Catherine is an excellant cook as I’m sure you can tell by her blog. Everyday is special at the dinner table in BoBo Hollow and I have a constant battle going on with food and the bathroom scale! Do try the Monkey Bread though and I am sure you will agree that it is a very special treat and your family will thank you. I especially like it as it is very low in calories! NOT!
Oh for cute, mother!
I think the fact that the loaf has a hole in the middle probably allows for the calories to escape! Yep, that is what we will go with Grandma! haha! Love you!
That hole definitely helps — did you have a chance to make them. They will disappear quickly!
I can attest to the marvelousness of the Monkey Bread! I have been a happy recipient of the Monkey Bread many times over!
MMmmmmmm now I want to make this! Your blog is not so good for my diet Aunt Catherine!
I know what you mean — I am cooking all this stuff – just to get pictures! Ha! ha! Make the Monkey bread for a weekend treat – it really is fun! Hope your eyes are doing better! Love you!
I think I will make it this weekend. 🙂 My eyes are wonderful, some blurry times still but that is to be expected. Love you too!
