What a wonderful weekend, filled with friends, fellowship and good food. We love having people over. We were so excited about fellowshipping with our company that we forgot to take pictures. (We have to get better at that part). At one point Darren went in the camper to get his camera to take pictures of the food he was cooking, but he got side tracked and forgot all about it and I pretty much did the same thing.😕🙄
We had so much fun eating and talking and hanging out outside, in spite of the heat. We had fans blowing and the Thermo cell going to keep the mosquitos away.
Cooking in the Dutch ovens on the ground is one of Darren’s favorite things to do. He is getting really good at it and we enjoy eating what he cooks. I wish I would have gotten a picture of it. It would have made your mouth water.
This is how he prepared the two larger pots. He covered the inside of the pot with aluminum foil for easy clean up, then he sprayed them with cooking spray.
This is what he added to the pots.
- Sliced baby red potatoes
- Minced garlic
- Sliced videlia onions
- Chopped green onion
- Sliced bell peppers
- Cooked, peeled frozen shrimp
- Fresh corn on the cob sliced in about one inch pieces
- Sliced sausage
- Steak sliced in chunks
- Pork tender loin slice in chunks
- Fresh green beans
- Secret seasoning
In the small pot he prepared it the same as the first two pots, with aluminum foil, then he added…
- Three cans of apple pie filling
- One box of yellow cake mix
- Sliced up sticks of butter
When He got all the pots prepared, he placed a long sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil on the concrete patio erea. He spread some sand on top of that, then put hot charcoal on top of that. He set the pots over the charcoal and put hot charcoal on top of the lid. I’m not sure how long he let it cook. All I know is that it was delicious!
Sunday morning we went to church. I get so much encouragement from being in house of the Lord. Pastor Clint preached on speaking to the dry bones (Ezekiel 37).
It was a good message. It reminded me of things that we give up on and think there is no hope for. It is time to speak life back into those things.
I am so thankful for the breath of God breathing life back into those talents and gifts that have needed a refreshing and have been pushed by the way side for so long. I am beginning to use those things again and it feels really good. I pray that y’all would speak life to those areas in your life that need refreshing.
Be sure to live life and love on your family,
