Sometimes I think I should be banned from even my own kitchen. At times I get an idea that somehow does not turn out the way I thought it would. The idea seems like a good one, but I quickly realize it was a terrible idea.
Case in point is the time I thought I had a way to make a version of sugar free ice cream..
The idea that came to mind was to take low fat cottage cheese and add cocoa powder. My thinking was the cottage cheese contains the milk product but no sugar. I added the cocoa powder for the chocolate.. I eagerly stirred this strange concoction in anticipate of my creation.
Then I did it. I took one spoonful and into my mouth it went. To my horror, it quickly came out of my mouth as the realization that what I thought was an ever so clever idea was actually monstrosity. It tasted nothing like ice cream.
In my defense, there was nothing to warn me the idea wouldn’t work. But then perhaps that in itself should have been telling. No recipe exists for what I was trying to do. 🙂
So okay I am no Master Chef. God seems to have given me other abilities such as teaching. The classroom is a place that ideas I have actually turn out well. Another would be ministry among refugees and immigrants.
The truth of Ephesians 2:10 comes to mind.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Apparently cooking was not something I was created for. 🙂
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
