Cooking meals at home –
Do you ‘Love it or hate it’?
Do you desire to love it a little more?
Plan meals both physical and spiritual food.
Plan a weekly menu for meals to shop for ingredients, saves money in the long run!
Plan a weekly spiritual diet – which sermons, talks, music depending on how well you can concentrate and/or if children need to participate. I also had many scripture verses around (ashamedly, not so many now).
Keep calm and praise JESUS, we are here where He has placed us!
I would get the children to help make part of the food, chop with a safe knife, put chopped food in bowls or pand, (still do) if little then I’d put in highchair with things to do, play nibble on like carrot sticks or the good old-fashioned wooden spoon and pot or pan to bang, – put a colander on their head to be a space person!
My mum used to, (apparently according to my aunt), leave me to feed myself but I’d end up with it all over me but my mum was able to carry on baking with me happily in a mess before family came for dinner/tea!
My granny gave me a little glass heart decoration:
“Bless this little kitchen Lord, I love its every nook.
Bless my hands as I wash, clean and cook.
May the meals that I prepare be seasoned from above,
With… but most of all thy love.”
It’s more or less accurate but key is our ❤ is right with God, honour God, not be stressed in our kitchen so dishonour our Lord!
In everything you do, do it all for the glory of God!
Do everything without complaining, arguing so that you may become faithful and true children of God!
Be a Mary not a Martha even when in the kitchen!
I was also challenged as to my use of time in the kitchen.
I love to cook but it can take up do much time plus is it healthy?
I prefer to bake for special occasions and cook quick meals serve salads, chopped fruits and vegetables where possible as it saves time but also better nutritiously than cooking out the goodness!
I also have intolerances to gluten, dairy and other foods, I’ve tried some freefrom baking and cooking but have decided not to waste too much time or money on food – which I cannot afford either of! I eat as natural foods as possible rice or potatoes instead of processed pasta and even limit gluten free bread – processed food isn’t good for your system. So, I’m leaning towards the Garden of Eden diet – essentially vegan, I believe.
