Cauliflower Tortillas

Several months ago Tim and I started the Keto diet. We have lost some weigh, and feel great, but we have missed tacos. Today I made cauliflower tortillas. I decided to share the recipe.

 

Cauliflower Tortillas

Tortilla Case

1 Three Pound Bag Green Giant Cauliflower Rice (Costco)

2 Eggs Slightly Beaten

¼ Teaspoon Salt

Other Seasonings—Your choice: Paprika, lime zest, cilantro (yuck, tastes like soap to me—that is a genetic thing, really.), cumin, black pepper or – use your imagination. I would recommend not more than ¼ teaspoon of each, though

Tortilla Equipment

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven and pizza stone to 400 degrees F
  2. Steam Cauliflower. I use my Instapot on the “rice” setting. I add about a cup of water
  3. Drain Cauliflower, and violently squeeze the water out of it! I use some silicon oven mitts.
  4. Transfer the drained cauliflower to a medium mixing bowl, and then add eggs, and seasoning
  5. Separate the mixture into 8 equal portions. I weigh the whole, then divide by 8
  6. Place each portion on a piece of parchment paper about 8 inches square
  7. Press each portion into a 6 inch circle using a separate square of parchment paper on top. I use my tortilla press—very gently!
  8. Place tortillas, with the paper underneath,  on the hot pizza stone.

  1. Bake for 5-6 minutes.
  2. Flip and bake another 4-5 minutes. When they are done, they will look it! They will be slightly brown and curled around the edges.
  3. Stake and keep warm in a towel or tortilla dish and serve!
  4. Or, allow to cool on a rack to use later.

Revival in California and Five Generations of Tongue Talkers

Last week Tim and I were in California to take part in the Living Proof Crusade with Mario Murillo. Read about Mario’s visions, words, and descriptions of what happened there on his blog: https://mariomurilloministries.wordpress.com/2019/03/15/breaking-news-3/

In one of Mario’s messages he said that in the early days of Christianity, signs and wonders always accompanied the preaching of the gospel. A miracle stops the argument. The power of God is the Living Proof. Souls are still hungry; revival is happening.

Tim and I were deeply blessed to be part of it. People were being healed, set free and saved! Praise God. The meetings were held in a tent in the parking lot of a multi-church facility in Marysville, CA. Six meetings had been planned. By the end of the week, though, so many were coming, overflowing the tent, that it was decided to continue the meetings this week, in a bigger tent they will put up in a baseball field in Marysville.

Pray for workers for the harvest. Pray for us, too, “that praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel” Ephesians 6:18-19

We believe that the Lord has equipped us for this revival and has called us to take part as volunteers. We came home on Saturday with plans to purchase a better truck for pulling our trailer. We may look for a bigger trailer, too. We have made reservations for the Living Proof Conference in Reno in July, and we are getting ready to hit the road again, when the dates for the next tent meetings are announced. The next one is planned for Stockton.

Now here is the fun part:

Many years ago I sorted the letters that my family had saved while my grandparents were missionaries in China. Twenty-five years of letters have been saved. While I sorted through them, I found this:

1923 Warren Collins party in Be

Warren Collins was my great grandfather. He lived in Texas. He was a street evangelist. I remember stories my grandmother told me about him. (The notes on the side of the article were made by my mom when she transcribed all the letters into books for the family.)

I was so excited when I found this article—about his campaign in Bellingham!  And I learned that my great grandfather had been baptized in the Holy Spirit, at least by the 1920’s!  I shouted out to my family, “Look at this! There are five generations of tongue talkers in this family!”

The really exciting thing, though, is that my grandfather’s legacy has passed down through all these generations. Now, even his great, great, great grandchildren love the Lord, serve him with all their hearts, and yes, pray in tongues!

Created or Evolved?

Early in my walk with the Lord I realized that we, and everything else, was created by God. The question of the old earth/new earth puzzled me, though. I knew that God created us fully made, all at once, but what about all this “evidence” of the universe being billions of years old.

I found the answer in the story of Jesus feeding the 5000. He created fish and bread, ex nihilo—out of nothing. And what’s more he created these things with the appearance of age! The fish looked as if it had spent time growing up, being caught, and prepared as food. The bread had the same characteristics—Jesus created the grain and other ingredients in the bread, in and instant. The bread looked as if it were the result of the whole process of growing wheat, harvesting, grinding, adding yeast, perhaps other things, and water. And it looked, felt and tasted as if it had been baked!  If Jesus, who is God, can do that—he can create a whole universe, or millions and millions of universes, ex nihilo—with the appearance of age.

But if a person doesn’t understand, yet, that Jesus is God, how can that person be persuaded that God created everything?

I spent months studying the arguments on both sides of the evolution/creation debate. At last it came down to one question for me to ask a person who believes we got here by a long process of evolution, “How could sexual reproduction evolve?”

Impossible, I knew. I knew that sexual reproduction could not have evolved.  How could male and female evolve for millions of years, somehow reproducing when the evolution of their body parts was not complete.

I was satisfied. I had my question to ask. I waited eagerly for an evolutionist to reveal himself to me. At last, one day there was a car parked in front of our farm store with a Christian fish on one side of the rear bumper, and a Darwin fish with legs on the other side of the bumper.

A couple was in the store.

“Which one of you is the Christian and which one is the evolutionist?” I asked.

They laughed.

“Okay,” I said. “I have a question for you. How could sexual reproduction evolve?”

Without a second’s hesitation they both said, “We don’t know. It just did.”

Wow. I was disappointed, to say the least. I had expected more intellectual honesty.

If you haven’t thought the issue through yet, think on these things:

  • How could the eye evolve?
  • Hearing?
  • Learn what irreducible complexity means
  • There is no such thing as a “simple cell”—a single cell magnified to the size of the city of Los Angeles, would look just as complex as that city.

If you are a Christian and you don’t believe in a young earth and a six-day creation you don’t believe that death is a punishment for sin. (Because you believe that death existed before the Fall). If that is so, why did Jesus have to die to save us?
