What are you Having?

My typical planning schedule is a little off this week, so I am just now planning our Sabbath feast. We will be having a Smoked Brisket, Tomato, Mozzarella Cheese, and Basil Salad, and Oriental Cole Slaw. For dessert we will do Killer Cookies. We just recently had these at a cook-out. Huge Hit in our family. Thanks, Chris! I will give you the recipe. I love feasting in the summer. It seems as though just eating outside makes the meal more special. What are your plans?

Killer Cookies

Spread cookie dough in the bottom of a greased mini tart pan. Disposable work great.The disposable ones are called pot pie pans. Bake the cookies and top with your favorite ice cream. Very simple, but delicious.

I'm Back

I'm Back!! I have been so busy planning for the gathering this past weekend. As I said before, my husband is teaching homeschool students on-line. We invited them to Lancaster this past weekend to meet one another. It was a blast. They had so much fun placing voices with faces. What does this have to do with feasting? If you had told me 1 or 2 years ago that I would be hosting 45 people for 4 days I would have flipped. I believe because I have become accustomed to entertaining and feasting(joyfully)through Sabbath Feasting, this weekend was more of a blessing than hindrance. When you entertain often there are routines that you go through to make things smoother. It all still applied this weekend, just on a little larger scale. The key to hosting and enjoying it is coming up with your routine to make things less hectic. The more laid back you feel, the more your guests enjoy themselves. Things can and will go wrong, but most of the time if you can laugh it off, or guests will as well. Do not stress, start out small, and above all enjoy your time to fellowship with others.
