Share the Hope

It was an awesome Resurrection Sunday! We had a cardboard testimony in Church and I am so blessed to read it all. God indeed is on the move in the lives of our people. He gives hope and life everlasting to all.
It was a great privileged as well to share that hope to our neighbour. They moved few months ago, an indian couple from Bombay with three children, same age as my kids. I baked cookies for them to welcome them in our neighbourhood and even hubby snow blow their pathway as they did not have anything to use for winter and obviously not ready for a lot of snow :) They are very shy but nice family.

The other day, someone knocked on our door. It was Tamia, our neighbour and she handed me a what she said an special indian traditional dessert. She is so sweet, she even explained to me how to eat it. She call it Suji Halwa, an indian  Semolina Raisin Pudding. It was so good!

We had a chat, she is such a sweet lady! she shared how hard their life back home in their country and how they struggle to be in another culture now.  Well, I shared to her the faith and hope that God brought into our life. It was beautiful, she listen intently and thankfully. She said she wants to know more about the God that I am serving. That is what I'm going to give her in return for that delicious Semolina pudding :) The Bread of Life and of course maybe with more bakings lol..:_

Help me pray with this neighbour.

Cooking craze

We are awfully busy for the past weeks. I hardly stay home during the day because of never ending appointments plus some other stuff :)

There are days that I just want to stay home and cook and clean the whole day :) and that day is today! I did all my laundry, some cleaning and a bit of sorting stuff from my wardrobe. Getting rid of some winter clothes.

  I am craving empanadas lately and they are not available to any filipino store anymore. I don't know what happen. Maybe the cook is on vacation:).  So today I baked chicken and beef empanadas! I think the dough turned out good this time. 

If you love spring rolls, you will love it too. You can either deep fried it or baked it. I prefer to bake it rather than deep fried, it's less messy and dough are more flaky and soft. 

You will enjoy eating it with steaming hot macaroni soup.

and the main dish, menudo with rice...yum! that completed a good supper!
Menudo is consist of cube pork, potatoes, carrots, spring onions, garlic, red chilli pepper and snow peas.

And finish it with ricotta cheese almond pie...
and Lumpiang Shanghai or Shanghai spring rolls . Leftovers are for the next few days.

Have a good appetite . What's your supper today?
