Passion Fruit Time

Here is a close up of a Passion Fruit Flower growing in my garden.

I thought 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.

Just a lovely arrangement.

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.

It tells you how to play the game on the inside pages.

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???????????

Watermelon Time

I think this Basket of Flowers looks lovely. Mostly they are artificial with just a few fresh picked ones in with them. They are sitting on the settee on our back patio for me to take this photo in the morning sunshine.

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.

Recipe:

WATERMELON SALAD

Ingredients: Watermelon, Mint (fresh or dried) Spring Onions/Scallion or Spanish or Red Onion. Which ever you prefer.

Method:

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.

There are some really good Recipes in this Book promoting Carnarvon Produce here in Western Australia. Hope you enjoy it.

Have a Lovely Day Today.

Sausage-meat Hamburger

A nice different arrangement in a Jug. Geraldton Wax are the background flowers and I can’t remember what the Red flower is called cut from a tree in my front garden. The small green birds love to suck the Nectar from these lovely flowers.

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:

Sausage-meat Hamburger:

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.

Let us be Content

Another Beautiful Arrangement of Fresh and Artificial Flowers.

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.
