Wine is totally biblical, luv.

I know. :laughing-jumpingpurple: Gwen has mentioned she tends to drink too much and  maybe she was drunk writing a devotional and that is why she decided that the ancient Israelites were whipping up Frito to offer God.

I’m a chili purest. Just give it to me straight up in a bowl. No chili dogs, chili pie, or chili spaghetti for me. 

Chili is good in any form!  But it did take us a little while to get used to having it with spaghetti, which is a big thing in Oklahoma.  We make whatever kind of pasta we have on hand instead of spaghetti, if we want it like that.

@AmazonGrace, true.  Wine is Biblical.

But I do think we showed her up, and she has to regroup.  She's probably not used to being caught off guard like that.

I thought chili on spaghetti was a Cincinnati thing. I had no idea people eat it in OK. I just can’t get behind it. I tried!

It's also pretty easy to make.

Recipe please? We eat chili mac in my neck of the woods. And Gwen Shamblin is off her rocker. All carbs are bread, and Fritos were eaten in bible times. Ridiculous, who listens to this crap?

Curious why an engaged couple — both members of the church — would call off an engagement? 

A young couple that was engaged in January of last year never made it to the altar. Both are still members of the church.

Aren’t members taught its not about being with the right person (unless you’re Gwod SHAMblin Lara) — it’s about *being* the right person? 

How — given all the leadership and parental involvement in matchmaking — would that happen/be permitted?

I've never made it but I love it! I think I need to try and make it now! 

Do you use regular Greek yogurt as the base?

Yep! We use 2 cups of greek yogurt, a few tbs of dill, 1 tbs minced garlic, one english cucumber grated, and then some salt/pepper/lemon juice to taste. It's delicious with pita bread!

She has recovered herself enough to give out advice on food allergies today. Avoid food if you are allergic, but some allergies aren't real so also just take small amounts because you might find you aren't actually allergic to it. 

My daily advice, if you have shown any sort of allergy or sensitivity to food please consult a doctor. Gwen is not a doctor do not consult her. 

Quote

True food allergies should be respected. For instance, if you are allergic to certain sea foods, then by all means, do not eat them. If you know you have a milk sensitivity, listen to your body and limit your milk intake. You will know your own sensitivities, hungers, and nutritional needs. Use common sense. However, there are many more incidents of simple food sensitivities that are not true allergies. You might try tiny portions of these foods and see how your body responds. Let your body tell you if it wants or needs or does not want certain foods. By decreasing your portion sizes, you may discover that you will not experience reactions to foods like you did in the past. Any severe conditions that persist need to be treated by a physician.

The verse she referenced in Leviticus is about the grain OFFERING...to God...and only Aaron & Co. were allowed to nibble at the leftovers.

They were not cranking out oily loaves of sacrificial bread for the tens of thousands of Israelites as their daily diet.  :bangheaddesk:

I would gain weight like crazy if I tried to follow her advice. It must be awful in that church to gain weight back because you are being told to follow and impossible diet and if you can't you are a sinner rejecting God. 

Me too. If I ate every time my stomach growled, I'd gain weight. As I've said, I've been calorie counting to try to lose some of the weight I've gained in the last couple of years. I probably should eat more, but until I can get back into yoga to offset it, I'll gain if I eat every time my stomach growls. If I ate what I craved I'd be living in potatoes and bread (or just bread if you're Gwen, I guess). What a crock.

My son's anaphylactic milk allergy  was cured when he was ten. He was given tiny drops of diluted milk daily and when he could tolerate that the dosage was increased. But the doctor said it doesn't work with all allergies.

Haha! If it requires dressing, it doesn't require a blessing. If it comes in a cup, no need to look up. 

Gwen really let me down today with her devotional. I was hoping for some more biblical junk food.

I can't stop laughing.  There are so many good lines!  The part about Gwen saying "And I will f*ck you up" is the funniest, even if it is a little bit too real.  Is there some sort of FJ award I can nominate this post for?

What I meant was eating Fritos is fine, thinking folks ate them in bible times and using that to justify Gwod's junk food addiction is crap. I was wondering why folks listen to Gwod's crap that are in her congregation, not us!  I like my jello with cool whip. Nothing wrong with jello or Fritos, and FJ is a good influence, LOL!

This one is probably blasphemous.

 

 

Is this the real bread?  Is this just potatoes?
When I am unfed   don't give me no tomatoes
I'm eating your fries,  that way it does not count
they're just carbon, and other chemicals
Because my liver will break it up, a little wine fills the cup
Proper nutrition  doesn't really matter to me, to me

Fritos never killed a man
They're exactly like the bread the priests in Israel ate instead
Fritos,  I had just begun But now I'm done and threw the bag away
Fritos oh oh oh,  Didn't mean to spill the wine
If I'm not back blogging this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if my words really matter

Kool Aid,  your time has come
There's hunger down the line, stomachs growling all the time
Goodbye chubby bodies you've got to go, gotta leave the fat behind and lose the weight

Spilling, oh oh  cabernet on my clothes
I don't want to eat, sometimes I wish I never had dined at all

I drink a little Amaretto and a can  of diet coke diet coke, can I have the burrito
vitamins and fiber, not in my diner - me!   jalapeno jalapeno jalapeno jalapeno jalapeno risotto cappuccino

I'm just skin and bones and nobody loves me,  she's just skin and bones, her muscles atrophy
Fighting my war against obesity
Eating disorder  will you let me eat, tortilla, no we will not let you eat, let you eat, tortilla no we will not let you eat, let you eat, tortilla, no we will not let you eat, let you eat,  (Will not let you eat) let me eat (never, never let you eat) let me eat (never let me eat)
Oh oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no, oh bulimia, bulimia, bulimia let me go
KFC has a bucket put aside for me for me for me

So you think you can see me and spit in my wine, so you think you can weigh me and steal my fries
Oh baby can't do this to me baby, Just gotta get chips just gotta get chips outta here

Oh oh oh yeah, oh oh yeah Skinny really matters
Anyone can see Skinny really matters, Skinny really matters to me
any time I hear growls

Frito pie is basically fritos in a bowl, pour warmed chili over it and then top with shredded cheese and chopped onions.  Sliced jalepenos optional.  You can use canned chili or homemade.

If you are asking about chili, ours is pretty easy.  Use ground turkey or beef, we've made it with buffalo before.  Brown the beef, stir it to break it up.  We usually chop up bell pepper and onion, put it in the pan and cook the meat.  When it's cooked, drain as much grease out of the meat at possible and I usually take a paper towel to it to get more grease out.  Add a can of Rotel tomatoes (they are small cans), a can of chili beans (some people don't like beans in their chili but we do), chili powder and 4 oz water.  The chili powder is hard to say an amount for, we use a boatload** of it.  You might want to start small, taste and then add more as you need it.  Over medium heat, simmer about 5 minutes or so and then stir.  Let it simmer until it's warm enough for you.  You can also use more or less water, we just use about 4 oz.

**I think we use about 1/2 - 3/4 of a cup because we like it very spicy hot.  The Rotel tomatoes also come in mild and hot, as do chili beans.

That sounds really good!  I might have to try that.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.
