New DVD: The Gospel of Mark

New DVD: The Gospel of Mark

This is a series coming out March 14th, available on DVD at Walmart.  last year The Gospel of John was released.  now you can watch The Gospel of Mark, Just in time for Easter.  This is the second book of the New Testament.  I’ll be watching this with my kids as a family movie night that is uplifting and spiritual.  I love that the movie was shot on location in Morocco with expert theologians and biblical scholars.  The DVD also has some behind-the-scenes bonus features.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS

According to The Gospel of Mark, Jesus is a heroic man of action, an exorcist, healer, and miracle worker — the Son of God who keeps his identity secret. This critically acclaimed, epic production — five years in the making — is based on the latest theological, historical, and archaeological research, and offers an unforgettable, highly authentic telling of the Jesus story — ending with the empty tomb, a promise to meet again in Galilee, and Jesus’s instructions to spread the good news of the resurrection.

Bang Flat Chicken Recipe

chicken recipeBang Flat Chicken Recipe

Mealtimes can seem like a bit of a chore.  Especially when you have an army of hungry children pestering you from the moment they come home from school, right up until you place their food on the table.  Little fingers tend to nibble at your ingredients and suddenly you find yourself with kids, the dog and the cat all under your feet.  So, it’s time to stop all the fuss and get something quick, delicious and different into your culinary repertoire.

Chicken is a brilliant meat.  One that is popular with most children because of its gentle taste.  Whilst pork, beef and lamb are all fabulous features of cracking meals, they can have a little too much depth to please fussy eaters.  This is probably why the supermarkets are full of chicken.  You would think will all that consumer demand they could supply free range or organic chicken at a more affordable price, however it appears we are still paying through the nose for this popular meat.  

So, it’s pretty important we find exciting ways of serving it that also make a breast go a little further.  You know what? We have found the perfect recipe and there is no way your children are going to get bored of it.  It is also going to cost you around $1.75 a serving so is a fantastically frugal meal.  Once you have read the recipe, get some more ideas from How to Save Money: Top 102 Money Saving Tips & Ideas!

Ok, the name of this dish alone sounds cool.  Bang Flat Chicken.

It’s called bang flat because that is exactly what you do.

The basics of this recipe are really simple.  You will need 4 chicken breasts, an egg, some polenta maize (or breadcrumbs) and salt and pepper.  That’s it.

Start by placing a chicken breast on a piece of clingfilm, fold it back so the chicken is sandwiched in the middle,  You don’t want it tight.  Then you simply bang the chicken, a rolling pin is ideal for this however you can use anything you like!.  Once you have flattened the breasts to around 1cm thick, 2 if you prefer.  Then you need to crack an egg into a bowl, whisk with a fork and sprinkle your polenta onto a plate.  Add salt and pepper to the dry mixture.  We recommend polenta as it gives an even more delicious crunch.  Then you take your chicken, dip it into the egg, cover it in polenta and that is it.

In a hot pan, fry the chicken for 5 mins each side and that is it.

You can serve this in so many different ways.  With wraps and spicy sauce.  Cut into fingers with a salad and dips.  With vegetables and fries.  It is also absolutely delicious cold, drizzled with lemon and eaten in as a lunch box snack.  There are so many choices.  Get creative and the whole family will fall in love with your Bang Flat Chicken.

When Life Hands You Lemons, And Your Children Drink The Lemonade!

When Life Hands You Lemons, And Your Children Drink The Lemonade!

None of us can escape the occasional stressful experience. In an ideal world, things would be good all the time. But, that’s not reality. In fact, reality can be quite harsh when we least expect it. It’s never easy when disaster strikes. And, it’s even harder when you’re trying to work around your children. With a bit of luck, you will have kept them safe from hardship. That’s how it should be. But, it can make it hard for them to understand the gravity of certain situations. As such, they will continue to play you up and make life difficult. Why? Because that’s what children do. When something major is happening, it’s the last thing you want. That’s why we’ve come up with a checklist of how to cope with children during those times. Whether you’re moving house or visiting someone in the hospital, this list has you covered.

GET THE KIDS OUT OF THE WAY

It may seem cruel, but getting the kids out of the way is often the best option. If you’re visiting someone in the hospital, taking children with you isn’t practical. Not only will they drain the person you’re visiting, but they could also disrupt other patients. Most children struggle to realize when they should be quiet. If you have nightmares of your kids running around the hospital, don’t take them! As well as keeping your visit peaceful, not taking the kids will save them facing an unpleasant reality. Hospitals aren’t pleasant places, and you want to avoid taking them there if possible. That’s especially true if the appearance of the person you’re visiting could upset them. Speak to family members or friends and see if they could look after your children. You could even arrange a playdate for them and use that time. Other parents are sure to be sympathetic to your plight.

USE THEIR HELP

If you can’t get your children out of the way, you could use their help. Of course, this depends on what stressful situation you’re facing. If, for example, you’re moving home, getting them involved could be the best thing. Instead of letting them run riot while the moving company tries to work, get them packing in another room. Kids love to be involved and are sure to rise to the challenge. If they have trouble knuckling down, express how helpful it would be if they packed some things. If nothing else, children love to know they’re helping in the process!

KEEP THEM ENTERTAINED

If all else fails, come up with methods of keeping your children entertained. Giving them things to do is sure to give you time to cope with the situation in peace. We don’t encourage sticking kids in front of the television. But, it is an excellent distraction. If your children are absorbed in a good film, you don’t have to worry about them. Books and games also work as great distractions. That way, you can cope with what’s happening, and they can remain blissfully unaware.
