Ithought this would be a nice photo to put here today as we now have Passion Fruit Season here.
Have put this on instead of a Basket of Flowers to start off the Blog today.
So – Recipes for Passion Fruit.
First of all we can just eat them straight from the Vine when they are fully ripe, just cut in half and scoop out to eat or – cut the top off and eat with a spoon like you would holding and egg.
Next: Well they go very well if you scoop out and put over the top of Vanilla Ice-cream. To make it more of a meal add Rice Bubbles to the dish, Honey and maybe some nuts. Or another Cereal that you prefer.
You can freeze the Passion Fruit Pulp in Ice Cube containers to use at a later time. Can drop one cube (or more) into your jug of Lemon Juice in the fridge, it makes a refreshing drink in the Summer months.
Here is a Link to the Book.……
I hope you have a lovely Day today….here is a Flower for you today to say God Bless You.

Line a Pie Plate or cover a Dinner Plate with 1 sheet of the Pastry. Cover the Pastry with Sausage meet, press down evenly leaving about 1″ of pastry uncovered around the edge. Put onion on the Sausage meat, sprinkle with Sage and Pepper to taste. Wet around the edge of Pastry with Milk and cover over the top with 2nd. Sheet of Pastry.

I thought I would put a recipe on here today. But first of all I am so happy that the Basket of Flowers look so nice and Fresh. They are of course sitting in a Wet Oasis Block in the basket to keep them moist for the day before bringing them home from Church to put in a vase of water for my room indoors. You may like to fix one up for yourself sometime or to give as a gift for someone’s Birthday.

I now have a new Book that is on the Amazon site. You may like to check it out and pass on to any friends or family that may be interested. It is a game that can be played with Adults and children, especially good on long car journeys or just for fun to help children with their learning.
I hope you have a Lovely Day today – maybe find a Flower to put in a vase in your Kitchen to look at while doing the dishes???????????
Matthew: 19 verse 14. Jesus said “let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these”
The heading of this Blog is Watermelon Time. So here is a Recipe a bit different maybe to what you are used to. I hope you like it as it is used to go with cold meat, lettuce and other salad things.
Ingredients: Watermelon, Mint (fresh or dried) Spring Onions/Scallion or Spanish or Red Onion. Which ever you prefer.
Cut Watermelon into balls or 2 cm. dice, place in large serving bowl, add the chopped up Onion, sprinkle in the fresh or dried mint to taste.
Mix well and serve cold with sliced cold Meat, Chicken or Fish.
Cover and cool in fridge until needed.
This is nice and also very refreshing on a hot day, you can of course use it as an extra salad with your B.B.Q food. It will keep well in the fridge for a couple of days. Just remember to cover the container when in the fridge to help keep it fresh.
Here is a Bible verse: Proverbs: 20 v 7. The righteous man leads a blameless life; blessed are his children after him.
Here is a Poem:
Little one sleeping there,
Tender Love Divine.
Little one Sleeping there,
Are you truly mine?
Has God given you to me,
Tender Love Divine?
Has God given you to me?
Yes, – You’re truly mine.

I thought this photo of the flowers in my special jug looks quite good. It is a reminder that you can display your flowers to look really nice in a special Jug that you may have instead of using a flower vase. it makes a a change from the normal everyday vase that you may use.
If you do not have a large size jug a visit to your local charity store may have just the one that you are looking for. They do appreciate any time you may have to pay them a visit to purchase something from their shop.
Here is a Recipe for today:
1 – Small round packet Sausage-meat (Cold from Fridge) Slice into Portions (Hamburger Size)
Coat in Seasoned Flour with Mixed Herbs & White Pepper
Fry in small amount of Oil till cooked on each side.
Serve with Salad or Cooked Vegetables for dinner or put into Hamburger Rolls to eat.
This is a nice quick Recipe to make for a meat dinner and easy for children to eat.
Here is a Poem:
I Just Remembered
I just remembered, did I forget to do that or – did I do it and forget that I did it? I forget now but if I do it now and I have already done it, that means that I would have done it twice. Best if I don’t do it now. I may not have done it at all if I didn’t do it in the first place. What a dilemma, why did I just think that I hadn’t done it, then think that maybe I had. Well I remember thinking that I should but I wonder if I did. The best thing is to go and look I suppose – – now what was it that I think I forgot to do. I can’t remember now, best to have a Cuppa and think about it later. *****
Exodus: Chapter 20 verse 12: Honour your Father and your Mother.

The Title of this Blog is to be Content – but most of the time we know that we are not. I wonder why we feel discontented some days and not others? Sometimes it is the Weather that has an effect on us, especially if it is wet and gloomy or raining and we feel we cannot get out and do things that we would like to do outside. However if we start to think how good it is to have the rain it puts things into a better perspective for the day. We can then start to get on with things indoors, or even in the workplace that we are in.
If we are indoors with a young baby it is sometimes very difficult to enjoy things if we are feeling discontented with life. So we need to overcome, take time to rest and play. Begin afresh each day to be gentle and nice to the baby, the little life that depends on us for all it’s needs.
Although – if by any chance we are a Carer for someone, the same applies because that person depends on us and if we are discontent in our attitude towards them it will show up in the way that we talk or take care of them. So it is good to try to put on a happy face when caring for them. It will make all the difference to their day when they see that you do really care for them. Just to be content with them for a while is a great comfort to that person who is really in great need of our help.
Let us have a Recipe here:
Baked Tomatoes. Ingredients: Tomatoes; Basil or Dried Mixed Herbs; White Pepper; Olive Oil. Garlic Powder.
Method: Cut Tomatoes in half. Lay Cut side up on Oiled Baking Sheet. Sprinkle with Herbs, Pepper & Garlic. Drizzle the Olive Oil over. Cook in hot oven till bubbling & cooked through. Serve as Vegetable with Dinner. Or on Toast.Very Tasty.!!!
You will find the above Recipe in my Book: ‘Carnarvon Favourite Recipes’ available as an e-Book from the Link below.
It is good to let some Sunshine into our lives, to open the doors, open the windows around the house to let the Sunshine in sometimes. Not of course in the heat of the Summer when we need to keep the house cool. The flowers in the photo above look so lovely and fresh.
Maybe bring some yellow flowers indoors sometimes as a reminder of the Sunshine….it is surprising how they can lift the spirit just to have them in a vase on the table or somewhere where you can see them as you walk past during the day.
Here is a Recipe for today as it is our Avocado Season I thought you may like this simple way to use some of them:
Avocado on Toast
Slice Ripe Carnarvon Avocado onto Toast,sprinkle with Vinegar and Pepper.
Very nice for lunch with Salad or on it’s own.
So we can let a bit of Sunshine into our lives by cooking something nice for our everyday meals. Experiment with something new for ourselves or our family and friends. We can let the Sunshine come into our hearts by doing something nice for others.
Romans: 1 verse 16 says: For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ.
So we need not be ashamed to bless others with our cooking or by just giving them a small posy of Flowers. In that way a little Sunshine comes into our lives and into theirs.
I hope you have a lovely day today and let a little Sunshine into your life.

Here is the LINK for the eBook which has a discount for this month of July
The above Basket of Flowers looked lovely that I made to remember my Mother on what would have been her Birthday….She would have been 100 years old if she had still been alive. Mum died when she was nearly 89 yrs old and I don’t usually think to do something special but this year I am glad that I did.
Sometimes it is nice to look back and think about some of our family who are not with us here on this earth anymore. Mainly to remember the good times – and to picture in our mind how precious they were. Even if we did not get on well with whoever it was they were still part of our lives that helped us to be who we are today.
Thought I would put a Recipe here and maybe a Poem to follow.
