Feeding Friday Comment Link Party #5

Welcome to the party. We are so glad to have you here. Today I wanted to share an old recipe that I had with you from a wonderful missionary to Guatemala and the the joyful, mother of 8.  Ms. Tammy can be found at: This Pilgrimage. Also she just had her 8th child and she is a beauty. If you have never had this treat it is reminiscent of a chocolate pie. Very yummy!

Pinto Bean Pie

2c. cooked unseasoned beans with juice
1/2 c. flaked coconut
4 eggs
2c. sugar ( I use honey)
1 tblsp. vanilla
1c. butter
2-9inch pie crusts

Puree beans, mash until they are really smooth, mix with coconut eggs, sugar(or honey), vanilla and melted butter. Beat well and pour into prepared crusts. Bake at 350 degrees F for an hour or until set in the center.

Memory Verses

My DH has started guiding the children in more memorization as a resolve. His best friend works at a home for wayward teens and they are learning large portions of scripture.  This inspired my beloved to step up the pace around here and the Z's are taking to it like a duck to water. They love impressing their parents with what they have learned and it makes me so happy to hear the word of God coming from their little mouths. Its so amazing to see what they can do.
Start out simple and build up or let them decide to do more. Sometimes they will if they are competitive.  Give the littlest ones a few phrases at a time to repeat. If you are really creative you can put some verses to song. Let me know if you decide to implement memory verses. Learning the Bible can also make the children smarter in their other academics. Learning fosters more learning. Why not learn the written word of God that has the power to bring a person to salvation? It will not return void and when they are old they will remember what has been taught to them. These are some of the promises we can surely count on in these uncertain times.
