Home Economics 101

Welcome to the Home Ec Section. Matters of the family sometimes bring joy and other times bring grief. But it is never trivial: Family matters! Feel free to discuss topics such as the sanctity of marriage; the awesome responsibility of raising children; the struggles of communication problems; the grief of losing a loved one; or anything else that relates to the home and family. However, due to the more personal nature of this section, I ask that you would be especially thoughtful of the readers' feelings. My earnest hope and prayer is that the discussions in this section will help families grow in the love of Christ.

But remember, always play by the rules: here

    There are recipes for them. Online.


    I learned something this morning in my research. Raw oatmeal would be a bad thing for me to eat. It has a component called phytic acid which prevents the absorption of certain minerals........including iron. One way to greatly reduce the amount of phytic acid without losing any of the good benefits of reducing hypertension and cholesterol is to soak the oatmeal overnight in milk or water. Cooking oatmeal removes a lot of those good benefits.

    So, will soak some oats overnight and add a little to tomorrow's mix.

It started tasting strange.

      Baked goods with chocolate are ok. So. There you go.
      Chocolate... cheese?

      I'm always still in trouble again

          Ahhh... yes. I like chocolate cheesecake. [insert gratuitous combo gouda and cheddar pun]

          I was thinking of actual cheese

            Never had it. Probably never will. Maybe it's good. I don't know. I probably never will.

              Now. Chocolate covered ginger! That's a good thing!

              I need to make some more.

                Why would you want to eat a redhead covered in chocolate?
