Our Green Meal

Just for fun... for St. Patrick's Day...

We had a green meal. It was very good. Even the children ate and enjoyed the soup.

We had Cream of Asparagus Soup, homemade green bread, and Watergate salad.

Cream of Asparagus Soup
2(15oz.)cans asparagus
3 chicken bouillon cubes
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp. parsley flakes
1 c. light cream
3 T. butter
2 T. flour

Drain cans of asparagus, reserving liquid. Chop asparagus stalks, reserve tips and set aside. Add water to reserved asparagus liquid to equal 4 cups. Put into 2 quart saucepan with chopped onion and chopped asparagus stalks. Add bouillon and parsley. Simmer 10 minutes with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat; blend until smooth in processor or blender. Melt butter in saucepan, add flour to make a paste. Slowly stir in soup stock, stirring until thick and creamy. Slowly stir in cream. Add tips. Serve warm.

Great Quote!

This is such a great quote about the Woman and her relationship to Man (her husband).

"The Woman was made of a rib out of the side of Adam;

not made out of his head to rule over him,

nor out of his foot to be trampled upon by him,

but out of his side to be equal with him,

under his arm to be protected

and near his heart to be beloved."

Vintage ABC Bible Verse Cards

Here are some vintage Bible verse cards I've made recently. They are great for kids to review their ABCs as well as for Bible verses, etc. (They look so cute too!) They are actual vintage pieces someone took the time to scan in and share! I have made a few sets of these cards. They make great little gifts too.
