Tzantziki! It's So Easy, You Can Make It Before You Figure Out How to Pronounce It!

This Greek cucumber sauce is a fresh addition to grilled meat and steamed rice. 
With a touch of garlic, it even has a good "kick" of flavor. 
Finely chop or shred 1 cucumber
I like to keep the skin on the cucumber to add color...  this one was peeled. 
Add 1/2 t salt and 1/2 t garlic powder.  Stir. 
It is important to do this before you add the dairy.  It mixes better this way. 

Find a good Greek Yogurt or a sour cream.  If you want to use yogurt but can't find it in a Greek style, strain a regular or low fat yogurt for 30 minutes  This thickens the yogurt.  
I don't keep cheese cloth on hand, so when I need to strain the yogurt, I place a few coffee filters along the sides of a strainer and then pour the yogurt on top to strain. 

Add 2 heaping spoons full of yogurt.

Stir and enjoy. 
This tastes even better after resting for 30 minutes or more.

Have We Lost Our Minds? Too Much Sexuality.

Today I am saddened by the blatant amount of sexuality exposed to our children.  We have lost our minds!!! 

It all started with an interesting blog on the SOUNDING...  and then ended up with the news of Abercrombie and Fitch's ideal customer... 

Do I live in a bubble?  Maybe I do.  We cancelled our cable subscription about two years ago, disgusted with what was offered as entertainment... disrespectful children, idiot adult figures, and casual (abusive) sexual relationships.  Does this make me a prude?  I think it shows I am intelligent!  What kind of idiot enjoys watching people (created in the image and likeness of God) act like objects or parents turning to children for wisdom?  I really think we have lost our minds!

Save yourselves, People!  Wake up!  Live your legacy!  Live like someone created in the image of God. 

As for us, and entertainment, we are big fans of Me TV and NETFLIX.

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope no one is cooking today!  And now that Bright Week has passed it's time to resume my writing. 


I hope you've had a blessed day.

Christ is Risen!

I'd like to wish you all a blessed and glorious
celebration of our Lord's resurrection!

And to share one of my favorite YouTube video clips of a traditional Serbian song.
