Make It Plain Ministries

Week of Prayer in Wildwood, GA

March 25 to March 30 - Six of the MIPers spent the week in the woods...
more specifically Wildwood!
Stay tuned for more details... and of course pictures!

So now after many months I'm finally putting up pictures of this week! (29.aug.07)

Our first day Joel drove us to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta where after we ate at the best vegan restaurant ever - Powerplant!
(the pictures from Powerplant is on another post dated 02 april 07)

Sharon & Shy hard at work making the tofu balls for Sabbath potluck.

Steve hard at work also, helping renovate the kitchen for the students/workers.

Happy 9 Month Wedding Anniversary to Us!

Steve called me from Wildwood, GA (Make It Plain is doing a week of prayer) and said he arrived safely. They went to the Atlanta Zoo and saw the pandas. He said they were so cute, especially the baby panda. Steve also said he bought me a present! Of course I had to ask, "Aww! Thank you love! What did you get??" He said, "A baby panda, stuffed animal." My heart melted! =) Wednesday morning I leave for Wildwood - so until then.... I was very happy for the gift and the thoughtfulness of my husband!

So since Steve left from LAX - I spent the night at my parents' house. It was such a nice visit. They made spaghetti, garlic bread, and mango lychee smoothies for dinner and Chicketts burrito for breakfast. Also, went to do taxes with mom-in-law. She helped so much.
I just want to say, "Praise be to God!!" for all of His rich blessings.
Before going to work, I went to Janice & Charles' wedding! "Yay! They're married!"

Fried Soy Ice Cream!!!

Fried Ice Cream is quite delicious & fun to make - just be careful!! (You'll see why very soon...)

Steve, Serg, & Marcello did all the wonderful work in making the yummy fried ice cream.

They made balls out of the Purely Decadent Soy Vanilla ice cream - rolled it in a layer of all-purpose flour then popped it in the freezer.

Meanwhile in a food processor put cornflakes, powdered sugar, brown sugar, nutmeg, & cinnamon.

They then took the floured ice cream balls and dip it in egg replacer then generously coated it with the cornflakes mixture. Popped it in the freezer again.

They heated up a pan of canola oil & got ready to fry the ice cream/cornflakes balls. The first one turned out really good with no problems.


The above pictured fried ice cream caused some problems. - while frying it the stovetop caught on fire, because some of the hot oil spilled over then suddenly there were fLaMeS!! By God's grace the fire was put out - with no damage to the our little condo. Praise be to God!!

So who got to eat the fried ice cream that caused the big scare?? Of course, Shylene did!! Too bad we didn't have any pics to show the fire - then again when there's a fire in your home one wouldn't really think of taking pictures of it, but rather praying to God it will be put out!

Fried Ice Cream = so YumMy!!
