Interesting Book I Am Reading


During Sunday School Class, the topic of a book came up that sounded very intriging.

Case for Christ/Case for Faith Compilation [Kindle Edition]

Lee Strobel

Lee Strobel (www.LeeStrobel.com), with a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School, was the award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and a spiritual skeptic until 1981. His books include four Gold Medallion winners and the 2005 Christian Book of the Year (coauthored with Garry Poole). He and his wife live in Colorado.

First of all to find out that he was an atheist when he first began was a surprise to me.  He only began to investigate due to his wife becoming a Christian.  His book has become a movie if you are not patient enough to read a book so look to see if it is available in DVD in your area.

Sorry I am not giving away about the book….read it for yourself and I will say that you will be glad that you did.  Just do not expect to get much done around the house as it is one of those can’t put it down books once you start to read it.

Daily Prompt: Hello Book It Has Been A While


Daily Prompt: Bookworm

Tell us about the last book you read (Why did you choose it? Would you recommend it?).

To go further, write a post based on its subject matter.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WORDS.

I have had two books sitting on my shelf that I have been reading.  For some reason, reading does not come as easy to me now that I am older as it did in my youth.

Not counting my Kindle subscription for http://www.magazines.com/crochet-today

Crochet Today! Magazine

I read that every month when it comes out as I have students who need new patterns. I also did not include all my cookbooks as they are reference books.

http://www.amazon.com/Look-Me-Eye-Life-Aspergers

The most intriguiging book that I actually did audio was debated when I was in college and I was in the Literary Guild.  I was on the panel and due to the book being auditory I picked up a lot that the basic reader on the panel did not.

Product Details
http://www.amazon.com/Horse-Whisperer-Nicholas-Evans

The audio version was more indepth and you could feel what the author was getting across by the tones of the voices.  I do not kiss and tell so you are on your own to find out details.  I am not the person who sits in the room and tells you the ending of the movie before it is over.

My next purchase is to get the two hard cover books on audio.  I seem to actually get through books much better that way.  Since my kindle died due to being plugged into the wrong outlet, I have to decide what new one I want to get.  That will start me on my way to my audio adventure.

Kicking My Allergies One Step At A Time


I had been researching pasta machines since September when I did not receive on for my birthday.  I decided that I did not need an electric one (although it would have been nice) and that I could get all of the attachments and come under the cost of the electric one if I went with the hand crank one.

I went to http://www.walmart.com to make my final purchase as they were the cheapest and offered free shipping if my order was over $100.

If you love pasta, then you’ll adore the Weston 01-0201 6 Inch Manual Pasta Machine. With the adjustable, 6-inch rollers, you can have almost any thickness of pasta you want to make for any occasion. A double-cutter attachment means you can make both fettuccine and spaghetti, while easy-to-follow instructions help you along step by step. The included recipe booklet keeps the machine fresh year after year.

About Weston Dedicated to every aspect of the food chain, Weston gives customers what they want and what they need. From house ware products to specialized tools, Weston understands that food is the most important element of our lives. That’s why Weston commits itself to the preservation of nutritional value, efficient output, and quality products. If you want the best in home food equipment, look no further than Weston.

  • Complete with instructions and recipe booklet

I also bought attachments…could not resist

ravioli

Ravioli Maker

attachments

These are from Bed Bath and Beyond  I did not purchase these only got the ones from Walmart that I would use specifically as they sold them separately and not all together like BBB.

I had to go to http://www.amazon.com  to find my drying rack and a good cookbook to go with my machine.  I was pleased to find a Weston Drying Rack at Amazon for $9.99 so that was really reasonable.  I will be making my lasagna for Christmas with Gluten Free Flour.

drying rack

For $9.99 it is easier than the flour surface and takes up less room as I am at a loss for space. I always prefer to go to Amazon when I am looking to price compare an Item.

That was my goal to be corn free and gluten free with my lasagna before Christmas.

I have frozen several batches of homemade spaghetti sauce that I made from the vine tomatoes that my roofer brought me so I am good to go with my sauce.

Now to conquer the battle of the cheese.  That will be at least an hour in the store with my list that I was able to get from  http://www.cornallergens.com/food/corn-free-cooking-baking.php that I take with me when I shop.

The actual list if you do not want to go through the entire website is located here

http://www.cornallergens.com/list/corn-allergen-list.php

I actually discussed my corn allergy the other day when purchasing insurance to find out that my new insurance agent has just found out that she also has a corn allergy along with several other allergies.  She also thought for the longest time that she was just losing her mind and was perhaps becoming a hypochondriac since no one else around her seemed to be bothered by the same allergies that she had.

She stated that a huge weight had been lifted off from her shoulders by my talking and sharing with her.  I hope that by spreading the information that I have obtained around and others sharing with me that the world will be better equipped to help us survive our allergy one day at a time and one step at a time.

Thank you for reading.
