Home of God & Good Food
The Chef and I agree that gathering the whole family around the dinner table to share each other’s company, and good food, is becoming lost – we’d like to have it come back. Rev. Lacy will tell you that when the neighbors smell BBQ in his smoker, they want to know when to show up for dinner! Good food is an attraction that can, and should, bring us together. And it has in the past! So why not now?
Here’s a recommended family dinner the Chef has successfully used with his family on many a Sunday, after church, which may be right for you. Nearly all dishes mentioned here come from The Devotional Chef Cookbook, which is being rewritten – with new dishes and new devotions – even as you read this. Go with the Chef’s own BBQ chicken, garlic bread, a salad stuffed with fresh veggies, Momma’s Corn Pudding, our modified Karen’s Potato Salad, and fresh homemade iced tea.
You can do this on the grill or in the smoker instead of the oven. Baste in the same marinate, grill until browning, coat with BBQ sauce and grill until crisp. Yummy either way!
We’re going to post this recipe separately later. We think it’s worth it!
Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” (Prov. 31:25-30)
And as for modified Karen’s Potato Salad, you can find the origin of this idea HERE. And Chadwick Boseman is welcome at the Chef’s home for dinner anytime!
Eat hearty, friends! And listen to the Chef podcast here!
