The girls are pretty much the same today as yesterday. Adleigh got to go down on her flow to 3 liters and at room air. And then Liana had 2 bradys when I tried to feed her a bottle so we had to stop and give it to her through the tube. I gave her a little pep talk and told her not to scare her mom anymore so hopefully she will listen!
Since I don't have much news about the girls I thought it would be good to let you know what the Joye household has done for the Daniel Fast. If you haven't heard about the fast yet here is what we are doing (I got this from Holly Furtick's blog) :Our church is doing a special fast for the next 21 days to pray for the work God is going to do in our church this fall. We will be abstaining from all meat and animal products, sugar, caffeine and foods with any additives. The fast comes from Daniel chapters 1 and 10 when Daniel did not eat anything from the king's table. You can read more about the details of the fast here.
One of the things about this fast is you need to really prepare and plan ahead for what you are going to make. Since I am at the hospital most of the day and don't get home until 7 or later it makes it hard to chop up tons of veggies and make something. So I have found a few quick and easy recipes that Wade and I will probably eat a lot for these 21 days.
1. Spaghetti: 100 % whole wheat noodles, tomato sauce, chopped onions, and chopped green bell peppers. This is super fast and tastes yummy.
2. Veggie Wrap: I sauteed a mix of veggies (Trader Joes had fresh cut Chinese Stir Fry veggies that I bought but you can also get a frozen bag) in a little bit of olive oil. And then put it in a Ezekiel tortilla.
3. Brown rice dinner: This one is in the recipe book (you can download from the link above): Mrs. Jones Brown Rice Dinner. I used a green pepper instead of a red pepper and I added fresh cut tomatoes. We ate this with some organic baked white corn chips. (This recipe has taken the longest because I had to wait the 45 minutes for the brown rice to cook)
So those are my super fast dishes I have made so far. Anyone else have something really fast that I can add to our list?
