Food and Scripture Verses

You never know when you are going to have an encounter with God through Scriptures. Some are not that surprising, like walking in a cemetery, like I did in late Summer last year.

I had such an encounter when I was cooking a good ole Southern meal Wednesday night.... Southern style chicken and pastry, with fried cornbread. As my hubby's coworker said, "That sure doesn't sound like diet food!" and it really is fattening. But, oh so good. I will diet next week. :o)

Here are the box of frozen pastry strips and bag of corn meal, both of which are made in North Carolina, that are the basic ingredients, along with some boiled chicken.

While turning the box every which way to find the directions I saw this:

A scripture and a prayer line!

We thoroughly enjoyed the chicken pastry on a work night, even!

Another night this week I made sloppy joes, with shredded lettuce and mayo. Doesn't that look yummy?

I'm afraid the sloppy joes aren't diet food either.....

I love this post! By the way, ANY food can be diet food if you only eat a small amount. :)

Debbie, Ann's Pastry is located approx. 2 miles from where I grew up... my claim to fame. LOL My mom received her book for Christmas and has enjoyed reading her story!

Yes, Anne Grimes, is a neighbor. Her business is just down the road. She included scripture inside the box for years... now it is printed on the outside. She is a good Christian woman and her book is such a fun read. She has recipes in the back of the book and nothing in there is non/fattening. I love chicken pastry.
