Today I am going to RMIT Brunswick, a small campus mainly for design majors, that's close to home and relaxed. Nicole and I are hosting an afternoon tea, in hopes to generate some more interest at this school. Although we are leading Christianity Explained with two girls who don't know Jesus yet, it's been pretty slow otherwise and we're eager for more students to be involved. Plus, it's mainly all-female campus so it's fun for Nicole and I to go together. It's been so nice having her here this year. Pray that more than a few girls come to our tea!
I have been lagging on my attempts to post all the recipes I have stored away, ready to post. I really like cooking, and it's been my only real hobby besides going to the gym this year. I get into the kitchen to cook when I'm stressed and need to relax, when I'm bored, when I want to bless someone with yummy things, or when I'm feeling homesick I make things to remind me of home. It's been a great thing for me to do just enjoy life more. The past few weekends I've cooked either Saturday or Sunday all day. Just trying new things and talking with Jordan or listening to a radio station from home on ITunes - K95 has been getting the most time!
So here is the rest of the Mid-Year retreat menu/recipes. Hope you enjoy having them - if anyone from our team is reading this!
Jane's Salad with Teriyaki Chicken and Snow Peas
Jane's Salad is what we call a beloved staple for our team: a cabbage, almond, chow mein noodle,
scallions, yummy Asian dressing salad. To this I added teriyaki marinated chicken and snow peas.
Watermelon and Strawberries
Fish Tacos with Fruit Salsa
I loosely made this based on several recipes I had. I used pineapple, red onion, red pepper, lime
juice and cilantro for the salsa. Added red cabbage. Made Avocado Crema by blending together
avocado, a bit of sour cream, S&P and lime juice. Made a dry rub for the fish which was grilled
with garlic, olive oil, cilantro, cumin, and chili powder. These were great and were a favorite.
