What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

This looks yummy! And thanks for the movie recommendation. I went over to IMDB to check it out, and I am pretty sure I haven't seen Paris When It Sizzles... but it does sound like one I would love!


I love oatmeal, too. And grits. Yum.


yum... I second the grits... with butter and sugar... or an orange squeezed on top...


I love the combinations - I would have never thought of coconut in oatmeal, but it sounds delicious - I will try this tomorrow morning. Thanks Joanne!


I heard on the radio a bit ago that oatmeal takes longer than anything else for the system to digest and so, as a long-lasting complex carb, keeps the seratonin pumping the longest and gives us that mellow feeling. Or, in me, that mellow, want to sleep after I eat a whole bunch more carbs feeling.


Question: Where do you get the dried pears, or do you dry them yourself? They were SOOOOO yummy in the scones!
