One night on my bed after talking and spending some time with my Savior Jesus Christ the Son of the one and true living God , I was gazing at the moon from the window that’s located over our bed.
It was really bright and beautiful and I got excited, grabbed Mommy’s IPhone and started snapping numerous pics of the moon.
I smiled joyously back at the moon and then with it on the phone after the pics was taken lol. I then closed back the windows and laid on the bed scrolling through which images to keep and to discard.
While editing them the Lord stopped me in my tracks of excitement and told me to “Look.” I paused and I did a little closer and not through the eyes of my flesh but the Spirit. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! I was like , “Wow!” When I saw the manly image shaped in the clouds that was around the moon that morning at 2:15 !! I was like , “Is that you?”
I know the enemy like playing games with our minds but it didn’t felt that way that morning at all whatsoever! I KNOW WHAT I SAW WAS REAL!
After spending some exciting and shocking moments with each image and what was displayed in them God told me that I have to share it on the blog! He was very serious about it and I told Him I would. He also instructed me to outline the image so that everyone can see what I saw!
Hahaha! I think that’s one of the longest titles I’ve ever had for a blog post! Ha! 😀 I mean come on it’s food we’re talking about here right? 😉 Any who’s…. Goodnight and welcome back to….
*Brina my niece wasn’t featured in this production with me* 🙂
I recalled the first time when my niece Kabrina *Brina, Breens, etc for short* made Taco’s for the first time home with no assistance from any adult within the household and I tell you my friends it was SO good! I was blown away and she inspired me to create them myself!!! 😀
This recipe is quite simple! I used a lot of our local seasonings that are brewed on de islands that flavours our delicacies well and will leave you wanting for more and even of considering to reside in the isles!!! 😀
Here’s what to brew:~ Para Taco’s
• 1-2 two packs of unseasoned minced meat. *I used 1 pc*
• 1-2 packs of Ummmm…little things shaped like pockets that’s made out of flour I bought in the grocery near our vicinity that I forgot the name for! *shame*
Seasonings ~ Jamaica thyme, Big leaf thyme and well I don’t know the right name for the other kind of seasoning but we call it here on the islands seasoning bush lol 😀 ! but we know the difference from each seasoning due to the shape of the leaves.
Soya Bean Oil by Lotus *prior cooking of mince meat* another local item from de isles! 😀
Para Oven Baked Potatoes~
10 English potatoes *or more if you wish*
Cheese (New Zealand)
Seasonings~ Lime Pepper & Five Spice Powder. *seen below in the image* 🙂
Butter *this is used to rub on the inside of the baking pan, tray, etc so that the potatoes won’t stick to the surface and prior prevention from burning. I used Blue Band Butter. It’s one of our local items here 🙂 !
Para Fresh Salad~
1 Purple Cabbage *I used half*
1 Green Cabbage *I used half in this one too*
Lettuce *I didn’t used the entire thing*
1 tin of corn by Matouks
1 bottle of Mayonnaise by Swiss
*Sweet Tip~ Add sugar *brown* to salad for sweet taste! We love adding it to our salads & cold slaws* ❤
LET’S GET COOKING!!!
Season minced meat from two days before brew date! By this all the different flavors from each seasoning will marinate and kill the fresh scent from the meat. In metallic pot of your choice or frying pan is recommended as well place 1-2 table spoon of Soya Bean Oil and wait until it gets hot. Through in veggies or pack seasoning of your preferred choice *like I do* for extra flavor into pot and stir gently for a few minutes. Add the minced meat while mixing in the veggies or seasoning that was added before. Leave to cook properly for 5-10 minutes, before adding ketchup, bar-be-que sauce and at least 1/2 cup of water. Allow the sauce to thicken and then turn off. Leave meat in the pot until it’s time to place in the taco.
In a foil based baking tray or pan paste a small piece of butter back and forth and around the inward sides of tray/pan until fully greased. Place pockets facing down. Pop them into the oven at between 250-300° to warm up for 5-10 minutes on each side. They are basically already cooked when bought so just a quick warm up does them fine! After heating up, remove from out of oven and place on table or cool area in the kitchen for cooling purposes. 🙂
Wash potatoes thoroughly with firm side on the wash sponge which removes the dirt from off the skin. Place in water in pot on stove to boil for 15-30 minutes. Test with the sharp tip of a knife midway of potatoes to see if it’s soft. By doing this it shows whether it is cooked properly or not.
Before placing them on the baking tray, paste butter back and forth and to the sides of tray to prevent sticking/burning. Sprinkle Lemon Pepper and Five Spice Powder unto greased tray. Add sliced potatoes unto the tray and then sprinkle more of the selected seasonings. Lastly grate 1/3 of New Zealand cheese in a bowl or over potatoes before popping them into the oven at 350°.
Before these babies were placed in oven! I started eating them before they were baked lolol! It was too good to be true! Or was it? 😉 lol 😛
Leave for 10-15 minutes before checking potatoes. They must turn golden brown before you flip them over on the other side to bake. After other side is cooked, remove from out of oven and place on table, cooling rack etc for that purpose.
Last but not least the Salad! Grate both purple and green cabbage alongside with the carrots in large plastic bowl along with stripped Lettuce slices.*you can transfer to glass bowl or dish if you like after grating process* Open the tins of corn and add immediately into grated cabbage/carrot. Add mayonnaise and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. Mixed it up all together and then place in refrigerator.
AND WE’RE DONE!!! Phew!
Well that’s it for now at the TamBrina’s shop! Thanks for being in the kitchen with us! Until then continue to….
Daniel 2:19-23 19~ Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven. 20~ Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of the God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: 21~ And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: 22~ He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him. 23~ I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.
Amen & Amen! Thank you Jesus! You are the Revealer of all things. Both great and small that you hold by the power of your Word and might! I thank you Lord for giving me this gift to use for your glory. I love you Lord and forever your name shall be praised in all the earth and in heaven in Jesus name. Amen. ❤
Blessed night all in Jesus name. Before I came to know Jesus as my Savior, from a very early age He gave me various dreams and visions that I didn’t understand at all and of course which I never took seriously until at the age of 15. I recalled it very clear and I’d love to share it within this new category first post. 🙂
I saw myself standing in front of our television at home staring at the screen as I saw a very large funeral going on. I saw many men in black in the streets. They looked militant. Their faces were very stern and they didn’t smile. At least six to seven out of that massive crowd was carrying the coffin of this dignitary. I sensed it was someone who was high in authority died. As I continued to stare at the screen the Lord zoomed in the image of the coffin closer and folded on the top of it was the flag of a Spanish nation/country. I saw it clear as day but couldn’t identify which country it belonged to. That wasn’t revealed to me as yet within the vision. I stared on in confusion as the vision disclosed there. I didn’t pay any sort of attention to it and just passed it off as just “another dream” or fragment of my imagination. But boy was I wrong and blind at the same time! God woke me up to it’s reality and revelation when I stood in front of the television at home one night as I watched the news broadcasting the funeral of Fidel Castro EXACTLY how God showed me in the vision that was given at that time 2 weeks before his death, funeral & burial. I was literally BLOWN AWAY as I stood in front of the TV. I immediately shared the vision with my Mom and sister. They too was shocked. After that time till now I took each dream/ vision from the Lord very seriously and even started writing them down.
God still uses dreams & visions to warn, rebuke, to speak, correct, reveal and to carry out His messages to others near or far from you. Many I have received from Him I saw came to pass and some that hasn’t as yet. Many of them I saw tied to His Word. Many I still haven’t received interpretation and revelation for as yet, but He does in His perfect timing. Some He boldly allows me to know what He’s saying and what they mean right away. It’s an awesome gift and I love it cause I get to use it for His glory and honor! ❤
Have a restful and peaceful night ahead! God bless and please don’t take for granted the dreams or visions God may be speaking to you through at the present moment. Don’t be afraid to ask Him for His wisdom, understanding and interpretation where it is concerned. He will answer you and will send someone to reveal to you the secret/meaning of the dream/vision. Just as how He had sent Gabriel His angel to Daniel and Daniel to the king of Babylon prior the revelation and interpretation of the dreams which He give them, so He will do for you too. Don’t take any of the spiritual gifts for granted. They were given for purpose. ❤ blessings & peace.
So sadly it has been an ENTIRE year and more I dispelled …I mean haven’t updated this fun filled category! Lol I’ll leave the links to the former posts I did under this category at the end of this post. Haha! It’s so good to revive it and I’m pretty excited about it after such a long time!! I believe God is leading me back to these once forgotten categories for a reason! ❤
Well without further ado…let’s jump right into this one!!!
Palettes! Paints! Go! 😀
Haha! 😀 I started this art piece with so much confidence that I was going to create exactly as how I had learnt it during the years of Secondary school when it was a popular trend back then in de good ole days but not with the usage of this art material but a sort of firm, rubber, plastic material instead that came in various colors. It didn’t came out accurately because I didn’t use the right material and I only had two pieces instead of four that is originally used to create the box/cube like pattern I wanted.
So a geometric chain was created instead haha! Oh my goodness! 😀
How much you think it’s worth guys? 😉 lol
This art piece was originally created sometime last year. When looking at the end product I started to laugh. I showed my sis and she said, “Aye da look really good inno! *Hey that looks really good you know* she continued, ” Diaz ah nice design fuh ah chain.” *That’s a nice design for a chain* And then it hit me! I was like, “Yes it is!” She told me that it was unique and I’m really considering of making it into a chain prior future items to sell. ❤
I bless God for that and it has taught me a lesson that there is beauty in failure. Purpose is birthed from it. It gives you an opportunity to try again. It increases your determination and strength to carry on at what He has instill in you for His glory and to showcase His greatness in/through our life’s. What an awesome God to serve!
Well that’s all for now! I pray that you have a blessed and restful night, day or morning! Blessings & peace. ❤
Byes and thanks a lot for reading! God bless you and continue to…
10 To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the Lord is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.
11 Therefore I am full of the fury of the Lord; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days.
12 And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith the Lord.
13 For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord.
16 Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
17 Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
18 Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.
20 To what purpose cometh there to me incense from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto me.
21 Therefore thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will lay stumblingblocks before this people, and the fathers and the sons together shall fall upon them; the neighbour and his friend shall perish.
22 Thus saith the Lord, Behold, a people cometh from the north country, and a great nation shall be raised from the sides of the earth.
23 They shall lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy ; their voice roareth like the sea; and they ride upon horses, set in array as men for war against thee, O daughter of Zion.
24 We have heard the fame thereof: our hands wax feeble: anguish hath taken hold of us, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
25 Go not forth into the field, nor walk by the way; for the sword of the enemy and fear is on every side.
26 O daughter of my people, gird thee with sackcloth, and wallow thyself in ashes: make thee mourning, as for an only son, most bitter lamentation: for the spoiler shall suddenly come upon us.
27 I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people, that thou mayest know and try their way.
28 They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are brass and iron; they are all corrupters.
29 The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melteth in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away.
30 Reprobate silver shall men call them, because the Lord hath rejected them.
We are builders of the Lord’s eternal Kingdom. And without the strength of The Builder of builders we can’t build. We are weak without God. That’s why we need Him every single day of our life’s. Everyday our heart and flesh fails but God is the strength of our heart’s and our portion forever. *see Psalm 73:26* He is enough for us. We don’t need anything else when we have EVERYTHING that we need which is GOD. ❤ Thank you Lord for your strength! All the honor and glory belongs to you forevermore in Jesus name. Amen. ❤
