Bread & Low Tide Adventures

August 21st brings us to the word Bread.

Deuteronomy 8:3:

And he humbled you and let you hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.

From Patsystitch:

John 6:35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life, whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.

From Maristella:

And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
Luke 22:19 | NIV

From Happy One:

Luke 4:3 & 4 KJV

And the devil said unto him,
If thou be the Son of God,
command this stone that it be made BREAD

And Jesus answered him saying, It is written
That man shall not live by BREAD alone,
but by every word of God.

Remember to leave the verse/verses you pick in the comments and I’ll add them here. Thank you.

Our kids had a shore day exploring low tide.

Our grands and our son’s best friend’s kiddos.

I managed to mow all our acreage yesterday. It was a cooler day which made that an easier chore. Dear finished painting our back deck. It looks so much better. Have a great Friday everyone!

Foodie Friday ~ Inside Picnic…

This hasn’t been a typical week for us and we’ve eaten off our usual track. Last night we decided on a picnic in front of the T.V. Being empty nesters who moved away from their nest to get to an empty one, no relationship was harmed by eating in front of the T.V. Dear and I have plenty face to face meals with lots of meaningful conversations!

 

We had hard cheese, soft cheese, smoked cheese. My favorite was the Stilton with apricots. A fresh small loaf of bread and crackers. Genoa Salami, avocado, grapes and peaches. To drink I made a White Sangria. Here’s the recipe.

3-1/2 cups dry white wine (your typical bottle is just enough)
1/2 cup Cointreau or Triple Sec
1/4 cup sugar
ice cubes
1 10-oz. club soda
1 orange
1 lemon
2 limes

Combine first 3 ingredients and stir till sugar is dissolved. If you are going to serve it right away add the club soda now and the sliced citrus. Fill glass you choose to use with ice and pour the sangria over and enjoy. You could use some of the fruit for garnish if you’d like.  If you plan to make it ahead refrigerate the first 3 ingredients and then add the rest of the ingredients just before your company arrives. (I go ahead and add the citrus ahead of time because I like the added flavor)

Be sure to visit our hostess Gollum at Designs by Gollum on Friday to see more Foodie Posts!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.
