THOUGHTS THURSDAY: Dairy-Free Alfredo, Life Update, and Such
Happy Happy Thursday friends!
I’m always so busy on Thursdays.
Today, my younger sister graciously taught my dance classes and filled in for me so I could spend some quality time on papers. I was able to get a lot done and ultimately was so productive today.
I also ate really well.
I invented a dairy-free chicken Alfredo for dinner; haven’t had pasta in a few months, praise the Lord!
Cow Dairy-Free Alfredo Recipe
1 chicken breast
56g dry penne pasta (I used organic spelt pasta)
1 cup green beans or broccoli (or both! I used green beans)
1 tsp each salt and pepper
2 tsp garlic salt
3 Tbsp full-fat goat’s Milk yogurt or other non-cow yogurt, unsweetened (sub cream for a dairy version)
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp water
1 tsp cayenne
1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside.
2. In medium skillet, cook chicken in 1/2 cup chicken stock or water over medium heat, until no longer pink. Add green beans or broccoli, salt and pepper, and garlic. Chop chicken as sautéing, and allow to sizzle, until much of the liquid is absorbed. Simmer over low heat at least 15 minutes.
3. In small dish, combine peanut butter, cayenne, and water. Microwave about 15 seconds; stir.
4. At the last minute, add goat yogurt to chicken skillet; add pasta. Stir to combine with heat. Add basil and parsley to taste, if desired. Serve in dish and drizzle with peanut sauce.
I ate this for dinner tonight and GENUINELY REALLY ENJOYED IT ANS HAD ZERO ANXIETY after my time in prayer! Thanks be to God! I am fuelled and nourished for an evening of paper writing and then Bible study.
My beautiful roomie Mary blessed me with this letter last night:
And we had one of our infamous “bunk bed talks” for a while. She is so focused and devoted to the Spirit all in all, it is beautiful.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor;
he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.
For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for he gives the Spirit without measure.
Thanks and praise be to the Lord Jesus Christ. For this day, this food, His Kingdom forever and ever.
