I’ll never forget the blessing of a dear friend standing at my door with a hot, homecooked meal in her arms. My husband had just had surgery and I was overwhelmed with his care. This sweet friend had called to tell me she was bringing me supper. One day last year my daughter brought a delicious chicken casserole when Covid came knocking at our door. There have been countless times when a meal delivered was like seeing the Lord’s hands comforting and consoling us. Those meals not only touched our stomachs; more importantly, they touched our hearts.Continue reading “Simplifying Taking Food To Others”

Make Ahead Breakfasts and Supper
Read this post if you want to…
- Make daily meal prep easier

- Be prepared for a busy day
Last week I shared about our family vacation and that we ate our meals in our condo. It was simplified in that my girls and I divided up the meals and volunteered to fix the food for that meal. I chose to make the breakfasts for all three days, and also for our Sunday supper. I didn’t want to spend lots of time cooking while we were there, so I prepped as mush as I could ahead of time and stuck it in the freezer, wrapped so it would be fresh.
Let me share what I made and how I worked ahead to simplify things.
Food Inspiration From Great Restaurants
We have been on vacation this past week and we ate breakfast and lunch in our condo, then enjoyed eating our main meal out each day. I love trying new food options – things I don’t normally make at home.

Keeping Berries Fresh Longer
There’s nothing more disheartening than to buy berries, stick them in the fridge, then a couple days later you find them moldy and mushy!
I have found a way to keep my berries lasting MUCH longer and it’s so simple! Wash and cut berries, removing hulls, etc., then place them into a glass canning jar and cover with a lid. They will stay fresh all week for me when I do this!
Not only do they not go bad as quickly, it’s also so much more convenient to have them all prepped and ready to use! I think your family will be more prone to use berries that are ready for their morning breakfast, than if they have to wash and cut the fruit first!
You’ll have strawberries ready to add to the Angel Food Cake I shared this week, or to top onto your Baked Oatmeal, or yogurt and granola!
Refresh your berries with this simple method!
