Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2013-223: Firsts: Letting the Ice Cream Firm Up

This year we struggled through the process of home made ice cream as I stated earlier.  When it seemed to be done we tried something I have heard about but never tried.  We covered the mixer with ice and salt, wrapped it in towels and let it sit.  This is supposed to give the ice cream a chance to harden a little.  I had my doubts, but it was worth a try.

Gone are the good old days with masses of youngsters screaming, “Ice cream, ice cream, we all scream for ice cream.”  Now we are older, more sedentary and patient.  Besides that we made it before dinner so we had to wait.

The results?  It works.  It wasn’t rock hard.  It was just right. 

Give it a try.  Or maybe you already knew about this and didn't tell me.

  1. I've heard of that, but we rarely did it!

    1. I guess the physics of ice changing the temperature of melting continues to work. I guess the cranking is to keep it from being separate and crystal, not to speed the freezing. God has so many mysteries to uncover. Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
