Yes, yes, yes. I was just playing around with my camera during the game on Saturday (it took me less time than usual to get bored since I hadn’t been feeling good all day), and experimented with the color swap function, and found that it worked pretty well!! Hence the red field. I think Alabama should take my advice and give it a try, don’t you?

On to blogging:

Everyone wants to give Jesus their best, right?

Well, Chris asked me Friday night, as he was preparing for tailgating, “If you could make one meal for Jesus, what would it be?”. In other words, what is the best meal that you prepare that you would deem the “fittest” to serve Jesus?

Chris’ meal:

  • Boneless Ribs, grilled and steamed -This is what he was preparing for Saturday and what spawned the conversation. They are quite good. But then he was concerned about whether or not Jesus would eat pork. So this is an iffy one.
  • Fried Rice – Chris makes some AWESOME fried rice.
  • Replacement for Ribs if Jesus was still Old Testament about his meat choices – Teriyaki Chicken Wings. Yumm.

Rachel’s meal: I think I would go with a Greek theme. After all, my family is Greek, my favorite food is Greek, and Jesus was kinda near Greece during His days on earth, so maybe he enjoyed a good Greek street vendor every now and again.

  • Appetizer: My Mom’s famous Tzatziki Sauce Recipe, and, if I could get it, the Hummous Dip recipe that they served us at Taverna Plaka in Atlanta. And of course some Feta Cheese and Kalamata Olives.
  • Main Course: Hirino, Spanaki Me Selino Avgolemono (Pork and Spinach with Egg and Lemon Sauce) with sides of creamed corn, dolmades, and crescent rolls.
  • Dessert: Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake with the White Chocolate Topping.

Most of the recipes to my meal can be found here. Chris’ aren’t documented, so if you want his, you’ll have to ask him.

So – I’m curious – please do tell. What would you make for Jesus if you had the opportunity to serve Him a meal?

  1. Well this is a tough one since I love to cook. I would probably make my mom’s chicken and dumplings with corn on the cob as a side dish, some homemade biscuits (because you can never have enough bread) and for dessert my grandma’s peach cobbler.

    As an aside I do believe Jesus praticed Judaism so he wouldn’t eat pork, but that is just what I learned in Sunday School.

  2. You’re probably right about the pork. AND I just realized that my meal was pork too. I’m a bit slow this week – told y’all I didn’t feel good. So I hereby change mine to the Lamb version of the same meal, Arni Me Spanaki Avgolemono. SURELY Jesus likes Lamb.

  3. mmmhhh. This is a toughie. I would probably make Jesus my Heart Attack Carbonara Pasta. Not that I want to give Jesus a heart attack, but it’s just really fattening and yummy (and besides, Jesus is pretty much invincible these days anyway, right?). I also have a yummy recipe for a Guinness Braised Beef Brisket, but I don’t know if Jesus would like it since it has beer in it :).

  4. Well, He did turn water into wine, and I’m sure that the alcohol cooks out, so I think that Jesus would like your Beef Brisket as well.

  5. Great question.. i love that thought.. serving Jesus food. Wow.. tell chris I like how he thinks..

    my choice would not be based on culinary skills but rather a food that warms my heart and makes me feel good. And because I am confident that Christ would eat pork (sorry i know that goes against what your friend was taught in s.s- it was the Lord who appeared to Peter in Acts 10, in a vision and gave him the “freedom to eat” all things. )
    So I would make Him some Carnitas (shredded pork) with frijoles negros (black beans) and arroz (rice). Tortillas to make the tacos with (corn tortillas of course) and guacamole. And salsa! Yum.. this is a staple at our house.. it’s sooo good.
