Pursuing a Passion Under Pressure


Midwest Sweet Tea

Perfectly describes my love of cooking for others

What an insane week it has been already. One woman couldn’t make it to a friend’s bachlorette party this weekend in Gatlinburg, leaving me to cook for 7 ladies Friday night. As someone who thrives under pressure, I’ve pinpointed a decadent meal bound to knock the socks off our guests (Thanks Pinterest). Planning last minute meals provokes a sense of worthiness, plus it provides an additional responsibility to attend to besides breakfast Saturday morning. For those of you not keeping up with my monthly New Years Resolutions, September revolves around pursuing a passion. Nothing excites me more than trying new recipes, so the menu calls for a few new items plus appended, familiar favorites.

Creamy Pumpkin Dip, served with fruit and fancy breads for the appetizer

Cranberry Pineapple BBQ served on hoagies (a favorite among family, this recipe is a must-do every Thanksgiving)

Rotel Mac n Cheese with Bacon and Queso

Sauteed New Potatoes with Green Beans and Onions

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
