Our God is good

May the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. (2 Thes 3:16)

This "Princess House" teacup is part of the very fist tea set I purchased for my hope chest back in 1988.

Tea Time

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Psalms 46:1 :)

A gift from my darling sister, I just adore it and her with all my heart.

Truly Special

Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord you God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. (Isaiah 43:1b-3a)

My Holly Hobby teacup was a gift from my sweet mum :) it is just too adorable for words.

Tuesday Dinners

My friend Jolie and I have started "Tuesday Dinners" it's time shared cooking the same recipe together. We are miles apart but sharing Tuesday Dinners makes the miles seem to disappear.

Parmesan and Potato-Crusted Flounder with Tomato-Cilantro Sauce:

3 tomatoes chopped
1/2 small onion chopped
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro chopped
1 1/2 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
2/3 cup potato flakes
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 (1/4 pound) flounder fillets
1 tablespoon olive oil

To make sauce, combine the tomatoes, onion, cilantro, vinegar and salt in a serving bowl

Lightly beat the egg in large bowl. Combine potato flakes, parmesan & pepper on sheet of wax paper. Dip each fillet into the egg to coat on both sides, then into potato mixture, pressing lightly to adheres.
Heat oil in large skillet over med-high heat. Add flounder and cook until browned or just opaque in center 2-3 minutes on each side. Serve with sauce.

WW 4 points :)

Tuesdays dinner turned out yummy :) Thank you Jolie for this new venture. I am looking forward to cooking next Tuesday with ya ! :)

These photo's are special because they are reminders of my childhood in Nova Scotia. The dish is from Prince Edward Island and I have the fondest memories of going to PEI on the Ferryboat
