How To Make A Delicious Mini Tea Biscuit And A Tea Party...

 

How To Make Mini Biscuits, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Why having a tea party is so good for one's outlook on being a wife and mother and a lady!
Even little girls love tea parties.

Do you have a teapot?
If you do not have a teapot you must be on the lookout for one!
You can find them in antique stores, or a yard sale, even TJ Max sells them.
I have a few of them myself; and I even have a few single serve ones.
These little ones are nice for just yourself!

Here is a lovely two tiered plate filled with some tea party mini biscuits!

These little tea biscuits or scones are so delicious!
I got this recipe from Lydia when I was out there visiting her,
She was gracious enough to share it with me!

I will share it with you also at the end of this post!


Tea Party Sandwiches... Living From Glory To Glory Blog

These little sandwiches were so good, they were filled with cream cheese spread
And chicken filling that was super yummy.
As we all know we can use just about anything inside our little bite size
tea sandwiches. I was told you could leave the crust on the bread because her
In America our breads are so soft and the crust is quite tasty.

We also had a riny glass cupped filled with cooked apples with a crumb topping 
on top of them, but of course we had a dollop of fresh whip cream to top them off!


Serving tea is not just enjoying the tea itself, but we can also really
Enjoy the preparations for it!

I am learning to take pleasure in the process of all that I do for myself
and my family and loved ones.
You can truly make a burden out of everything if you are not aware of
how wonderful everything smells and taste if you add love!


Mini Biscuits For Tea

2 cups Flour
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1/8 tsp. Salt

In a bowl now add separately
1/2 cup oil
(I used a light olive oil)
1 Egg
1/2 Cup of milk

Mix the wet ingredients up well and now add to the dry ingredients;
You can add a bit of sugar if you want a sweet biscuit!

Mix the dough till all is moist and now pat it out to cut out your biscuits.
I used a small glass to make a tiny biscuit, you can use anything round.

Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for only 10 to 12 minutes;
Just check the bottoms to see if they are slightly browned.

Serve these mini biscuits with some jelly of your choice;
Top them with a bit of whip cream!!


I have been looking for a small biscuit cutter, but so far I have only
A middle size one and so I am using a shot glass cup LOL

Expect Changes...

 
Changing Seasons Of Life, Living From Glory to Glory Blog


Everything Changes

Just when you thought everything had settled into a pattern...
This post is a gentle reminder to all of us that seasons come and they go!

I think when we can learn this and remind ourselves,
 That this is the way things work, we can fend off
Some stress and sorrow...

When you are married you go through many ups and downs.
But through it all you can accumulate some many wonderful
Lessons of wisdom!

I know if you stopped to think about all the things,
You all have been through and experienced in your lifetime.
You would say now I never saw or expected that to happen.

When we become so stiff necked and are not pliable to changes,
We can become fragile in many ways!

Be quick, dear ones to submit to what comes your way!

Now, we know that the evil one is always prowling around seeking 
To whom he may devour...
But we are told to submit to God and resist the devil!
So we must always stand in the place of not just sitting
Back and allowing the enemy of our souls devour us!!

~Even in the Lords prayer, we ask Him (God) to deliver us from evil~

But some things are just His perfect will for us;
The trouble is that I see in a glass darkly dimmed.
What I mean by this is we cannot tell the future.
And you should never allow anyone to tell you your future!
That is for God to know!!

But we are not left without direction as we have been given the 
Holy Spirit to guide us in all truths!

But there again is where we must learn to submit to God!

Arise, and let your enemies be scattered!

Expect changes
Expect to be corrected
Expect to go through trials
Except, that in His perfect time, you will overcome;
And if you do this you will endure to the end!


On The Home Front
I have now discovered I am lactose intolerant
My gut now needs healing, so I will go gluten free for a while.
Going to meet out new grandson
(Darn I have to go to Florida) LOL
I will be having my 60th birthday soon!
My nails have finally healed from some gel nail polish I had on!
(It took over a year)
I hope you are all well and are growing through your changes...
I appreciate each and everyone that stops here

Christians And Halloween...



Why I do not do witches and black cats and evil scary things!

Firstly, let me tell you a story,
Witches are real and they love to do what witch's do...

When I was but a very small child I went trick or treating with my older
Siblings and we went house to house all dressed up in our costumes.
 And we carried a pail to put our candy in.
Well, I always seemed to be the last one to get my treat
And was the last one off the porch usually.
 This one particular year I was dressed as a Gypsy.
I was shocked and surprised when this lady started saying some
very weird and scary things to me!
I can remember being very afraid, and I realized even as a child.
This was not a game, but something strange had happened.
I tripped over my long skirt and dropped my bucket of candy.
I fell off the porch and hurt my leg.
My siblings were half way down the block!

I realized even as a child I just knew;
I had had an encounter with a witch!

I must tell you once again when you participate in this activity,
You will be exposing yourself and your children to evil things.
I also believe we can instill fear in our children that can last
for a very long time!

I doubt the discernment of those that think it is just healthy fun!

It is not glorifying to God or in your children's best interest!

May you realize if you do do this Halloween pagan tradition
Beware, as I can attest to things that are not particularly wholesome.
I also realize evil is always lurking;
But on this particular time we have helped him by setting the stage.
And willingly have open the door to evil and scary stuff.

In our culture we seem to not be shocked by much of anything anymore!

We now have a program called The Good Witch.
Years ago we watched the program Bewitched.

Some Christians use it for a time to evangelize others.

Personally, I think it is wiser to NOT participate in anything
to do with Halloween.


I am thankful that my children when they were little did not
participate in any Halloween activities.

But as our children married and had their own children
they both felt that they wanted their children to experience what
they had missed. I was sad over their decision and I prayed for them.
But only after a few times of doing it with their children,
They saw and felt the dangers their children were exposed to.

"One time they all went together and a man chased them down the
street with a chain saw that was so loud and he was screaming at them!"

I have many other stories about this pagan activity
But I will save them for another year!
Remember this is a blog that tries to train and teach!

Her Choice Of Words Offended Me...


Bad Language, Living From Glory To Glory Blog

Her mouth and her words offend me!

I so wanted to be this gal's friend if only on Instagram :o)

But her choice of words offended me...
Look, I am not as pure as the driven snow,
But I do have scruples and this gal crossed the line for me.

There is just something about seeing a photo of something beautiful
and having a cuss word in the one line.

You can have all the beauty in the world and still look like a pig
With a gold ring in one's nose.
You can look classy yet sound like a fool.

I do not say this to make you think I have never said a bad word;
But rather to say that when we write something that the whole world
can see, it now becomes the point of showing no discretion.

When I was a child if we said a bad word we got our mouth washed out with soap!

Now days they might consider that child abuse!

Well, I think adults need to wash their own mouths out with soap first!

We have two ears and two eyes and one mouth;
And some of the things that come out of a ladies mouth
Is nothing but disgraceful!!

She said _____  _____ _____!

So, now you can understand why I do not want to read about her amazing
Vacation or her view about anything.

Yes, I live in the real world, but I have chosen to not subject myself to pollute 
myself with foul language, no matter the lovely photos.

She may get her hair colored and cut
She may get her nails manicured
She may wear the newest fashions
But she truly needs her mouth washed out with soap!

She can use a lovely french milled soap
or she could use just the plain old

Ivory Bar Of Soap






Please realize that cuss words should not come out of a
Lady's mouth, even in writing or talking!

And that's all I have to say about this for today...

Staying On The Narrow Ancient Path...



Here is proof I did some long term food preparation!

I wonder if we could just realize how much of an impact our little jobs
we do on each and every given day will help us to enjoy our days.

Sometimes we get so busy we do not take in the smaller little gifts of a sweet smelling aroma!
Or we miss the things that really matter!

As I write this blog post this morning, there is a fire burning in the mountains.
They are being evacuated!
What trauma and fear are in their lives today!

But when we are not in the line of fire do we react with thanksgiving?

Can we expect everyone to agree with us and how we have been taught
to live our lives?

Do we think just because we are a Christian we are going to be liked?

Sometimes we must just look straight ahead and stay on the
narrow ancient path!

Beware of the new and improved church and culture!

We now see the world in the church rather than the church in the world!

When I was a child, I thought as a child;
But is my thinking grounded in truth!

Look, beware of practicing all these weird and off the wall extra biblical stuff dear ones,

Prayer Circles
 (from the book called The Circle Maker)
Here is a good link describing this;

Soaking In His Presence

Spiritual Disciplines


New Revelation

Speaking In Tongues

Are you growing in your feelings
or
Are you growing in the wisdom and knowledge of the truth?

Being prepared for the days to come spiritually and physically!
Be wise, but not afraid!

Examine yourself...

Being A Woman Of Leisure And They Called Her Lazy, Because She Did Not Work (Outside The Home)...

 
Do Not Be Lazy, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Being a woman of leisure...

I really do just sit around and eat Bon Bon's all day!
My days are filled with nothing important...

I do not leave the house by 7:00 am
I usually awake when I open my eyes
(But it use to be when the baby cries)

I make myself a cup of tea!
Many mornings start out reading and studying that OLD BOOK!
No Wall Street Journal here to enlighten my old ways of thinking.

Boring and no GOOD MORNING AMERICA!

While still in my robe I find myself putting a load of
dirty clothes that were worn doing nothing.

I cleaned off the old boring round table
(The same style of King Arthurs Court Room)
Changed out the tablecloth that had splatters of bits and pieces and crumbs.
(From meals that have been the same ones I have used to feed my brood)

Yup, so far, been up for 1 hour and twenty minutes;
Only took off all the stuff from my 10 foot counter top
Washed and rearranged everything on it!
Writing this post so I could get it done before I need to go do
my weeks shopping for fresh veggies and fruits!
Because My Old Man will want a lunch to take to work with him
And Then there is DINNER
Gosh, all he does is work and sleep and eat!

I bet he wished he had my job!!

Washing and cooking and cleaning!!

Wait, what a shame while I was running around doing all these boring chores and my
Bon Bon's melted into a pool of icky gooey yuck!

Really do housewives really eat Bon Bon's?

Well, maybe some housewives might be lazy...

Make Time Daily To Refresh Your Heart and Mind...

 

I was very busy today as it is a Monday!
I try to get a few loads of laundry done and get my kitchen in shape.
 I wanted to take some pictures of my fall mantel and I never had time.
(This was the one from last year I think)

I did get a sewing craft finished and it is a very pretty tea cozy,
But it was one of those days where things did not go really smoothly.
But I have learned that it is in these times I get to practice 
~Perseverance~

Truly, when things are a bit off and everything seems to be a challenge;
We get to take a breath and just put our hand to the task!

If you have ever sewn then you would know about the little tool
called a seam ripper, and this is the little thing you use to rip out
just what you have just sewn together...

It is much easier to sew a seam than to have to rip it out!
(Trust Me)

These seem like days that feel like they are filled with trying things!
Hurricanes, floods, forest fires, and these political storms.

Why do we need to stop and just focus on our homes?

Well, if you do not do this you would become a neurotic person with a stress problem!

Look you cannot stop the chaos that is happening everywhere!
But you have been given the privilege to create a place of peace.
A refuge of calm and comfort!

And if you have created your home to be pleasant and lovely;
Then now you must take advantage of it!!

Stay at home a bit more often
Do not run to town or to the store daily.

Do not over schedule your days!

Keep yourself well stocked with pantry foods to make a few meals.

Buy supplies for a few crafts to make some gift items;
This will give you great pleasure!

Make yourself some tea in the afternoons!
I have found a nice cup of hot chocolate to be perfect lately.

Keep a few good books readily available to read a chapter while sitting
in your cozy corner or chair!

Keep a bible study on the kitchen counter so you can work on a few
questions each day or so!

I truly think we need to train ourselves to relax and take a breath!

If you have little ones rest while they are quiet or napping.
If you can make it just a few moments of rest of your mind and body.
If your children are grown, then you must still make time to
Refresh yourself and so then you can enjoy your afternoons.

I have found that it is better for me to decide what my evening meal
is going to be in the earlier part of the day.

When you are planning your days do not forget that
to do things that refresh your heart is just as important as all the
chores that must be done in any given day...


I took a picture with my phone!

How To Make Some Marvelous Mini Meatloaves...


How To Make A Mini Meatloaf in A muffin pan! Living from glory to glory blog


I have been making these little mini meatloaves for a few years now!

These little gems of an old time dinner favorite,
or maybe you do not care for meatloaf.
But I am hoping you will try this delicious way to make
a new an improved mini meatloaf.

The advantage to this meatloaf is firstly the size,
Because it is so much smaller than the typical loaf pan size.
It will cook really fast!

You can also make a few different twists of flavors in each batch.
You can please each member of the family.
Italian, Mexican, BBQ

Items Needed

1 pound of your ground beef meat
1 package of Stove Top Stuffing
Any flavor you like, chicken, cornbread ect.
(Or you can use your own flavored bread crumbs)
1 cup of water added to the stuffing mix

Now mix all this together,
Grease a 12 cup muffin pan with your cooking spray

Press the meat mixture into your 12 cup muffin pan.
Make an indentation on top of each mini meatloaf
Now, this is where you add the goodies

You can add
 Tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese

Taco seasoning and salsa and Mexican style cheese

Garlic salt or powder and your favorite BBQ sauce and cheddar cheese.

See the ideas are endless...

I like to add some green chilis, another time some sauted onions.

Bake in a 350 degree oven, (preheat the oven)
They cook between 15- 20 minutes.
Cook until nicely brown and cheese is lightly browned.

These little meatloaves are great for a dinner party,
They freeze really well!
They make a delicious cold meatloaf sandwich
(We like our with some mayonnaise and ketchup on our french bread)

This is a great way to stretch your meat budget also.

These are a very tasty way to get a dinner on the table quickly!

Always cooking and trying new things can be a great way
to keep your menus filled with new and inspiring foods.

Look, even the old meatloaf has gotten a new makeover!

Have A Wonderful Day!

New Boots...


The Love Of Cowboy Boots

I have always enjoyed having a nice pair of boots;
They are a staple in a ladies wardrobe if you live in the west!

Really a nice pair of boots can be worn anywhere!
"In the country or in the city"
They can be very comfortable and great support for your feet.

They look very classy with a skirt or a dress;
And they of course look perfect with a pair of jeans!

I have had a pair of work boots for the yard and chores,
It is a must to keep the thorns out of one's socks.
A pair of boots can protect your ankle and legs from a snake bite!

Sometimes I feel like kicking up my heels and dancing a jig...

Every Spring and Fall the grandsons need a new pair of boots!
Our Men need a sturdy pair for doing all the chores!
Now, Girls need a pair to look like a country girl!

~A good pair of boots will last a girl for years~

~A good Husband will last a lifetime~

A good set of silverware will last for a very long time~

~A relationship with the Lord will last an eternity~



Blessings, Roxy
