Papaya

  

Let life, its sweetness find you, shades of rosy hue,

A taste of God’s creation,  the tropics shining through.

Turning all, refreshing, the jaded, made anew,

The goodness of His bounty, the earth, in fullness due.

~ D.F.

Comfort

IMG_7313
Steaming bowl of comfort, revive this spirit, fray,
Harvest from His bounty, upon my taste buds play.
Soothing, warming, calming, aroma, senses sway,
For now, the world, its passing, fade in faraway.
~ D.F.

Red & White

Red & White

Saint, sinner, the hungry, take heed,
The Lord at supper, His flock to feed.
Flesh and blood, red and white, meet,
Tis God Himself! The soul’s true need.
~ D.F.

Cake

Gather in the manna, bread for us this day,
Blessing plain forgotten, our gratitude delay.
Still another treat bestowed! From oven, freshly baked,
Wonderful is His providence, by special grace, there’s cake!
~ D.F.

“The house of Israel named this food manna. It was like coriander seed, white, and it tasted like wafers made with honey.”
~ Exodus 16:31

Homemade or Store Bought?

I do love eggs but have I personally cracked a thousand or more of them? Hmmm, that seems rather unlikely even though I have been doing more baking nowadays.

 
So it was quite a surprise that while preparing an omelette, I found my first ever double-yolker!

After all, the chances of finding a double-yolker is supposedly less than one in a thousand eggs that are store bought.
 
This is because unlike eggs bought directly from a farm, such eggs are usually picked up through the process of candling and they end up being used in egg products instead of being sold as whole eggs.
 
Still, fun as it was finding this double-yolker or more spookily, chancing across a half dozen such eggs in a single carton (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1248133/Eggs-actly-ARE-chances-double-yoker.html), personally, nothing really beats having my very own homemade “twin-yolkers”…
 
Say “Hi”, boys!!!
