I was surprised how many of you have never tasted a Persimmon. I don't know if they grow other places than California. But This is the process I do to end up with delicious Persimmon Bread. I peel them as the skin is rather tough. They have the consistency of a crisp apple to I cut them in pieces and use my food processor.
The persimmon pulp is a beautiful orange.
I use my buttermilk banana bread recipe, and substitute the persimmon pulp instead of the mashed bananas.
If you still doubt if you would like it, stop my kitchen this weekend and we'll have a slice or two with some hot coffee.
Communion Sunday is my favorite Sunday in the month. In our Church we celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of the month. Our pastor is out of town for Thanksgiving, and ask my dearest to serve Communion tomorrow. This is very special as this is his favorite message to bring.
In 2002 we had a guest speaker at our Church in Hughson, Rev. John Carlton,and it fell on Communion Sunday. I took notes in my Bible and have referred to them many times when reflecting on Communion. I wanted to share them briefly with you today.
Look in these directions before taking the Lord's Supper.
BACK ~ Looking back to the terrible price that was paid for our salvation (Isa. 53)
AHEAD ~ Testimony until he comes again. The Second coming of Christ. Will you be ready? (I Cor. 11:26)
AROUND ~ All the lost in the world, that are unsaved. (John 3:16)
WITH`IN ~ We need to look within and examine our own hearts. Take an honest inventory. *Not save ~ Have we made that decision? (John 3:16) *Living in un-repented sin (I John 1:9) *Holding an offence against another Communion is a serious and wonderful act of worship and remembrance.
I was thrilled when I read that in 1969 Buz Aldrin took communion to the moon in Apollo 11. What better place to remember the Creator of the Universe, and the Savior of our hearts.
Hope this is a wonderful Sunday for you. Blessing and prayers for all my blogger friends.
The dinner was delicious, and gone before I thought to grab my camera and get a picture of the bountiful buffet! Then fresh coffee, Apple, Pumpkin and Pecan pie with lots of REAL whipped cream, and an assortment of other goodies.
Confetti Cup Cakes, and Reese Peanut Butter cup cakes. I saved the plastic container I get apples in from Costco, and it worked perfect for transporting the cupcakes in the car to our sons. There is no picture of the four layer Chocolate Torte with Mousse filling as I didn't have any way to transport it in the car. Afraid to put it in the trunk...and Molly rides in the back seat so that was a little scary. So the decision was made to postpone it till Christmas Dinner which is at my daughters home that lives close to us.
Slept in this morning, then had leftover ham with eggs over easy, toast and jam and fresh strawberries. My idea was to have apple pie for breakfast but my dearest preferred a little more healthy breakfast, so I waited a couple of hours, and NOW I'm having a slice of apple pie with whipped cream and a hot cuppa coffee. I better wait a couple more hours before I dig into the pecan pie. Oh my is there anything better than staying home on Black Friday, and enjoying all the leftovers.
Rain was in the forecast for Thanksgiving Day... Didn't happen ~ Sunshine, and then sometime in the night the rain came...How nice that the Lord held it back a day. We need the rain, and today is a perfect day for rain.
I'm thinking a lot of us will use THANKSGIVING for our "T" words this week. It only seems reasonable to do so. This is the scene on my roll top desk. I've had the Thanksgiving blocks for so many years I can't remember. On our trip to Boise Idaho a couple of years ago, I found my carved Pilgrims. I love the pair. Beautifully carved, and hand painted. The wooden candle sticks with electric candles just completes the look as your enter my living room.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL MY ABC WEDNESDAY FRIENDS.
