Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

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 2013-371: Firsts: Popcorn for Breakfast

Being acquainted with grits and steel cut oats, popcorn begged to be admitted to the club.

When I stay with my son I experiment in the kitchen in ways that would drive my wife frantic with anxiety.  Popcorn is not exactly a major risk but what about for breakfast? 

With bulk popcorn and a microwave it is possible to turn out a reasonable amount of cereal in a reasonable amount of time with no oils or additives.  We put it in bowls, added milk, sweetened to taste and gave it a whirl.  It was declared a winner.

If you try it, be careful to get the unpopped kernels out of the mix and chew carefully in case you were not perfect.  Maybe this is old news to you, but it is new to us.

Does anyone know how they get puffed wheat and rice?  I have tried wheat in the microwave and all it does is burn.  There are still uncharted shores to visit.

  1. Puffed wheat, oats and rice all used to be made at home, but I think the moisture content of the kernal is pretty critical. Maybe you could look it up online.

    1. One entry I found warned against doing puffed cereals at home. He seemed to think that death was one potential. This is recreational so I will keep up the investigation.

      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.
