“No matter how bad you want things to happen right now, sometimes later is better” ~Christine Sternfels
To live a simple life… practice patience. It’s in God’s time, not ours. It’s difficult to be patient, but to suffer the consequences of haste is usually worse.
“Don’t take the daily simple pleasures in life for granted. They are the moments you can enjoy at little or no cost, effort or sacrifice” ~Christine Sternfels
To live a simple life… find the time to enjoy a cup of tea. Take this time to soak in the silence, peace and quiet and to reflect on the abundant blessings you have in your life.
I haven’t posted a recipe in a while, so I thought I’d share this with you. While I was cleaning out my refrigerator the other day, I saw some smoked gouda left over from last month’s party. I was getting ready to throw it away but I checked it out and smelled it. It was still ok. So I decided to use the pie crust in my freezer (God knows how long it’s been there!) and experiment with the cheese. I got lucky with this one!
Ingredients: 1 box Pie crust dough (2 crusts) and 2 tbsp finely shredded cheese (I used smoked gouda). Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Use a standard cookie sheet to bake with. Spray it with butter flavored cooking spray (or you can use parchment paper to line it with).
Unroll the pie crust dough and lay it on a flat surface. Using a pizza cutter, I sliced it in 1.5 X 3.5 strips. Carefully place the cut pieces on the cookie sheet, it’s ok if the sides touch. Sprinkle the cheese then place it in the oven. Bake on the bottom rack for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Take it out of the oven when done and transfer the strips onto a wire cooling rack. If you want to try it while it’s warm (which is what I did cause I couldn’t wait and it just smelled so good), just make sure to give it at least a couple of minutes to cool down.
Enjoy! I was thinking next time, I should try sprinkling cinnamon and sugar!
