Family Visits, Spring Flowers, and Something Different For Lunch

Greetings, Dear Ones! 💗

I pray that this Thursday afternoon finds you and yours healthy, happy, and serving the Lord with joy in this bizarre season in which we find ourselves. How are you spending your day?

Things are going well here. I spent the morning in prayer and Bible study. Then, enjoyed a leisurely visit with one of our daughters-in-law. She was needing a new Flexi for her hair, so, after narrowing down her choices on messenger, she came over to pick up her chosen favorite. We kept the exchange outside and practiced social distancing by holding our conversation on the front porch, while sitting several feet apart. It was nice! 💗

Then, in the afternoon I saw two of my children and their children and ended up totally blowing the whole social distancing thing by giving in and hugging my grandchildren. It really couldn't be helped and I don't regret it. We won't be overly free with the hugs by any means, but, from now on, we will hug when the situation deems in necessary. 🤗

I discovered these incredibly small, but absolutely lovely, spring flowers blooming in the yard this afternoon...

And, then, I made something really weird for lunch. (At least it sounded really weird to first!) I made Sliced Apple and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. 😳

Slice Apple and Grilled Cheese Sandwich
I saw a recipe for them yesterday. I had one apple left, so decided to try it for lunch. For each sandwich I melted a small amount of butter on the grill and laid the slices of bread in it to give each side a buttery layer. Then, after letting the bread toast to a buttery golden brown on one side, I flipped it over and added 1/2 apple sliced into very thin slices and three thin slices of sharp cheddar cheese cut from a one-pound block. I allowed the bread to toast to a buttery golden brown, then flipped again to brown on the other side. I served the sandwiches with Chili-Cheese Frito's and, I have to admit, it was absolutely delicious! In fact, it was better than a plain grilled cheese sandwich and I will definitely make these again and again! My husband and I both greatly enjoyed the flavor and what a great way to slip fresh fruit into your meal plans! They were really, REALLY good! 💗

Well, that's it for me today. By all rights hubby and I should be in Branson right now for the annual Victory Campaign, but, earlier in the year, we had decided that we were going to skip it this year, save the money, and put it towards debt freedom. Now, due to the pandemic, services at Faith Life Church have been canceled and the three-day, scheduled event is going to be broadcast live online. The first session is tonight at 8:00 and I ended up taking tomorrow and Saturday off work so I could attend the first Virtual Victory Campaign ever online and not miss a thing. I'm so excited!

Anyway, I'm going to get around here and start moving towards evening. I will talk to you all again soon!

Until next time...
