HUSHPUPPIES AND A NEW BIBLE STUDY

 My cooking class is next week, and if I'm making something for the first time, I always make a "practice" batch to save the embarrassment of a disaster in front of the class. 



I found a recipe from Taste of Home that looked really good, so this morning I made a batch and the result was yummy.  I added some powered sugar and syrup to ours and both my dearest and I gave them a "thumbs up".
 
I feel like the first day of school when we were so excited to get new books, pencils and supplies.  We start a new series next week on the Women of the Bible.  Our leader is so gracious to give us folders with all information about the class and schedules we will need, and a prayer journal to record the prayer requests each week.

Looking forward to studying the lives of these special women recorded in the Bible.

    1. I was running out of ideas for the cooking class, as I try to make it easy when I ran across this recipe from Taste of Home. They need to be eaten immediately when warm, or they lose there luster!! The Villa where we live gives me the opportunity to share each month, and they pay for the the ingredients. They like to have activities to involve the Seniors.

  2. Hi Wanda, I remember that feeling of new books, new pencils...new pencil cases...those are some good memories! I hope your class brings you lots of joy and knowledge. :)

    Your hushpuppies look good...what kind of oil do you use? I stopped any kind of deep frying because I find the oil we use really leaves a bad odour in the house, we use Canola oil and we don't like how it smells after. One day I want to get a deep fryer, but I'll likely only use it on the porch lol...

    1. For most of my cooking I use Virgin Olive oil from Trader Joe's, but for this kind of frying and for baking I use Crisco vegetable oil...(what my mom used...) I've never found it to leave an odor. I don't have a deep fryer. I used my electric skillet.

    2. I remember Crisco...mostly the shortening. I should try that. Thanks for the response! :)

  3. It's been years since I had hushpuppies. You'd look good. I love starting a new Bible study. I just began teaching First Thessalonians. There's always so much to learn. I'd love to hear about your study as you go along.

    1. If you eat them right away while they are warm they are delicious...later if warmed up...not quite as good.
      I love that you are teaching the Bible. Wish I was in your class. For so many years in the ministry I taught, but now I'm enjoying being the student. I'll keep you posted. Our first woman is Hagar.

    1. I'm looking forward to one a little easier. The minor prophets were DEEP! Good study, but glad to be doing something that won't take as much research time.

      Hushpuppies is a Southern dish. Made with cornmeal, flour, sugar, egg, milk, creamed corn, and dropped by spoonfuls in hot oil. Good for breakfast with powdered sugar or syrup, and served in the South with fried chicken, mashed potatoes.

  8. I LOVE hushpuppies!! Those look good. I just happen to have that Bible Study and have used it several times to study different ladies from the Bible.

  9. Those hushpuppies do look delicious! I haven't had them for many years. I had them for the first time when we lived in Pensacola and that was in 1972.

    Enjoy your new Bible class and please share your thoughts.
