square 12 & belated pi


“But Daniel set his heart not to defile himself with the king’s choice provision and with the wine that the king drank, so he requested of the leader of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.”  Daniel 1:8

One of the verses I memorized this past weekend.  A basic matter in our christian life is in the matter of our spiritual diet–what we eat.  if we eat godly food–taking God as our food–we will be one with Him.  Eating was the first temptation man faced in the Bible.  Many situations and matters we encounter in our daily living is a choice to eat from the tree of life or from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

and now here’s the physical food we had for lunch…i know, i’m a week late for pi day (i wasn’t thinking of pie theme, it just happened that way):  chicken apple sausage & roasted red pepper quiche; mushroom, tomato, & roasted red pepper quiche; banana cream pie (super easy original recipe from theKitchn, my tweaked low-sugar-toddler-friendly version below); and broccoli that you see off to the side.


the crust:

9 graham crackers (equals 1 cup crumbs)
1/4 cup walnuts or filberts (didn’t have in the house) subbed with 1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tablespoons sugar (i feel the graham crackers sweeten things enough)
6 tablespoons melted butter

banana filling:

3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar 1/3 cup sugar
Pinch salt
3 cups milk
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk (i read this 5x, it means i whole egg = yolk + white, and another egg without the white)
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 large or 3 small very ripe bananas

super fast to make (but need to take into consideration chilling time), and very yummy.  no leftovers today!
