Daybook: 07.27.15

For Today... the last Monday in July

Outside my window... rainy and humid! The heat index forecast for this afternoon and tomorrow is in the danger zone ... I'm already ready for fall.

I am thinking... "will I ever get the hang of using my new i-Phone?" I don't even know how to get Siri to talk to me yet ...

I am thankful... to have smart daughters who know how to help me with technology.

I am wearing... my favorite black, white and blue geometric print shift dress. It is so cool and comfortable.

I am wondering... what I should study for my next set of bible study lessons. I'm leaning towards the book of James.

I am reading... David Platt's "Counter Culture."

In my kitchen... I didn't get to make the Garlic Cheese Chicken last week after all, so it is on this week's menu notation instead. To see what I made instead of Garlic Cheese Chicken, check out under the Board Room prompt.

I was given a bunch of farm fresh eggs so this week will include deviled eggs and chopped eggs for salads. Does anyone have a favorite egg recipe they would like to share?

A favorite quote for today... "Though the church is winnowed down like Gideon's army ... don't overreact." Max Lucado,  "Fearless"

A peek into one of my days... here is a great photo of Siesta Key beach taken by my daughter on our recent trip:

One of my favorite things... kisses from my favorite twins.  We babysat with them last night and loved every minute of being with them.

From the board room... we were in the mood for Orange Chicken. I chose Jen's recipe from Balancing Beauty and Bedlam. (I've been following her for years.) It was definitely a keeper, and quick and easy.

Delicious Low Fat, Orange Chicken recipe. As good as the Restaurant!

Can't wait to make it again!

We enjoy egg bake. I line the 9x13 baking dish with cresent rolls to make the crust (you can use hashbrowns if you prefer). Then I brown sausage (or chop ham) and put it in the bottom. Add anything you like. Tonight I used sweet peppers, onions, cilantro, cheese, and sausage. Top off with a dozen eggs beat well. Spead out evenly in the pan and baked it at 350 for about 45 minutes. Served it with sliced tomatoes and watermelon. Very good way to use a dozen eggs.

I think studying the book of James would be a good choice; its a favorite one of mine :) LOL trying to figure out the smart phone; I've had one for about 2 years and am still trying to figure it out :)

The beach photo looks relaxing. As for an egg recipe, I saw this one on PBS with Jacques Pepin. It is Gnocchi with egfs and green onions. It does not take a lot of time and it is delicious. The recipe comes from Pepin's book "Fart Food My Way." Here is a link to the recipe:
Have a great week!

I want to go to that beach!! As far as egg recipes go we really like baked frittatas that basically use up all sorts of veggies or leftover meats.

Loved reading your daybook and seeing that beautiful ocean picture. I have a new smart phone too (the iphone 5S) and my oldest, who used to own it, is showing me the ropes. Thankfully, it is a lot like my iPad. only i don't need the wifi with it :)

Yes I have a wonderful, super easy egg recipe you cook right in the microwave for a fast and light summer dinner or even in the winter when paired with other things. In fact, that was on my "must blog this " list so I am heading over NOW to write it up and post it. Feel free to check it out. It should be up within a half hour. I love new recipes!!!

Oh that orange chicken. Yum.

Don't worry about your iPhone. You'll get the hang of it soon. So far, I have no complains using it. :)
