I really want to post on here with a lot more frequency than I have been doing up to now. It’s tough with the schedule of working full time as a teacher, running a photography business, but more importantly remaining obedient to God’s plan of focusing on Him, my marriage, and spending more time with our sons. We’ve been playing tennis three days a week. It’s been fun. I come home with a lot of energy from that and my workouts. There are challenging moments when I am faced with so much when I get home between making dinner, getting the boys bathed and situated for Bible and bed time. All in time and most importantly I have to keep telling myself one day at a time.

So onto the food… I tried something like this at one of our work pot lucks in January and was left with the strong addiction for more. Our school’s P.E. coach shared his recipe with me and this is the result! Lime, coconut milk, and cinnamon…sounds like a trio made in heaven! This coconut rice sure to impress your family or those at your next pot luck!

    What a cool idea! I must say, I’m glad you didn’t make the cones – I was feeling singularly unaccomplished!
