Wecipe Wednesday

Hope that everyone is having a great week! It's been pretty good for us so far. Monday and Tuesday my hubby was able to get home from work early, which meant we were able to spend some time together. (Yeah!) The kids are tickled because we went to a friend's house Tuesday and they got to play in the pool after Summer Academy. (Thanks so much for inviting us over and feeding all of us! We had a great time)

Baby A didn't much care for the pool though. I think she might have been okay if I had gotten in with her, but me in a bathing suit is not a pretty sight right now! I pulled mine out of the dresser and tried it on. The top of it doesn't hold me in as well as I would have liked, and the bottom of me is LOTS bigger than I picture it being. Time to get serious about the weight loss thing.

Okay, those of you reading this I need you to chime in on something for me. Hubby and I were reading a Bible trivia book with the kids. It says that David killed Goliath with a sword not a stone based upon I Samuel 17:51

"Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him, and cut off his head with it. And when the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled."
However, the verse before that says,

"So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. But there was no sword in the hand of David."

I truly believe that the Bible is infallible, and these verses can be read either David slew Goliath with a sword or a stone. So here is my question to you, sword or stone and why? Before you begin, this is not being posed to start any arguments. If you choose to leave a comment, do not attack either view. If you comment is hurtful it will be removed. Let's remember that our purpose is to build each other up (I Thessalonians 5:11) and not to destroy others faith because they see something differently than we do. (Romans 14) That being said, I look forward to your responses.

Now for today's "wecipe". Today is more of a seasoning than an actual recipe. It started as a sparkpeople recipe for "Sticky Chicken" but I tweaked it some. I use it on grilled chicken, fried chicken, roast chicken, etc. I especially like to use it to season chicken for salads. ( Place on chicken breast cut into bite size pieces in a sauce pan, add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup water and about 1 tbsp of seasoning. Cook over medium heat until water evaporates and chicken is no longer pink. Be sure to stir often. This is enough to serve over 2 salads.)

1 part celery salt
2 parts paprika
1 part cayenne pepper
1 part onion powder
1 part dried thyme
1 part white pepper
1 part garlic powder
1/2 part black pepper

Mix together thoroughly. I make large batches of this and keep it in a shaker, but you can use a teaspoon as your measurement and that will make enough to season a roasting chicken.

Hope the rest of your week goes well!

Hy, I believe David did exaltly as God wanted David to do. David killed Goliath with the stone, however the Philistiens (sp) need to see prove. David stood over Goliath drove a sword through him and cut off his head for all to see. There could be no dispute the Goliath was indeed dead by David.
