Whenever I’m at the ocean I think about the Lord’s control over creation – the waves, and me. Just as the verse above states, He is the one that calms the waves that are caused by the storm. Only He is able to do that. We can trust Him to bring the calm in our lives at the right time.
We arrived yesterday to sunny skies and gorgeous weather. We’ve walked the beach, ridden the Lazy River at our resort, swam in the warm pool, and then we had supper here in our condo. It seems our tradition to have a simple meal of tacos the first night we arrive.
One little twist with our tacos is the mango salsa I make to top the taco. The sweetness of the mango is really delicious! Here’s the simple recipe:
1 ripe mango
3 tbl. diced red onion
1/3 cup diced tomatoes (I like the grape tomatoes for this)
3 tbl. cilantro
1 tbl. lime juice
Last week I made a dish I’ve been making for years. I had some requests for it, so I’ll share it today. It’s not exactly low fat, but I only make it about once a year. It’s a favorite of ours – I hope it will be yours too.
Honey Fried Chicken Strips
2 large chicken breasts
1 bunch parsley
3/4 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup milk
2 tbl honey
1 tsp lemon-pepper seasoning
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1. Cut chicken lengthwise into 1-inch strips. Chop enough parsley to make 1/3 cup.
2. In large bowl, mix flour, milk, honey, lemon-pepper seasoning, salt, and chopped parsley. Stir in chicken; set aside.
3. In 5 quart Dutch oven over high heat, heat 1 inch salad oil to 325 degrees on deep fat thermometer (or, heat oil in deep fat fryer set at 325 degrees.
4. Fry chicken strips, a few at a time, about 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and outside is golden. With slotted spoon, remove chicken to paper towels to drain.
I serve honey for dipping the strips into. Mmmmmm!
Hope you have a week of walking with the Lord. I’m not sure how often I’ll post this week; it depends on the ease of getting on-line – I’ve had some difficulty.
