Behind The Scenes : Staff Fire Safety Training

Behind The Scenes : Staff Fire Safety Training

I’ve decided to try to start filming some “Behind The Scenes” videos to show you what happens around here on the non Sunday days. They’re meant to be lighthearted and fun and just another way to bond with you through this wires and waves that we call the Internet. If you like them, I’ll try to keep making them. If you don’t like them and complain a lot, I’ll probably stop. There’s always the comments section in this blog 😉 Continue reading →

The War Mouth – 1209 Franklin St. Columbia, SC

The War Mouth was on my list for a while. I think the fact that they had $16 Chicken Bog on their menu made me nervous to go. I make a pretty good Chicken Bog at home and get way more than a serving for that price. But I had heard good things about it this funky New Southern restaurant and my curiosity was piqued. When a few of my girl friends that I hadn’t seen in a while suggested that we all get together at The War Mouth, I was doubly in.

I know. By the time that you’re reading this, the SC State Fair has already passed for the year and I’m moving into a season of cleansing from all of the delicious junk that I’ve consumed. See this as a State Fair food recap, or bookmark it as a guide for next year. I’ve been going to the fair since I was just a little girl. Several of the stands have been there for that long at least. This year I had the good fortune of attending several times for various reasons. The first being our promo shoot for the Fall Festival, which will be taking place Sunday, October 30. Super huge thank you to FBC member Dan Douglas for setting us up really well with the Fair so we could do that. In the promo, we featured the type of foods that we’re going to have at our Fall Festival, corn dogs, pizza, popcorn, and cotton candy. Of those items, the only one that I typically get when I’m at the fair is the corn dog. This leads me to my 3 must haves at the fair each year and which stand to visit to obtain them because it totally matters.

No More Than You Can Handle

No More Than You Can Handle

In the middle school ministry at First Baptist, we are going through a series in which we read a popular Bible verse and study the context and meaning of it. It has been a great experience for our students, so I want to share a little bit of it with you. Continue reading →

I’ve had several really good eating days recently. One day that sticks out well in my mind is the day that I had what might have been the best burger I’ve ever eaten. And no, I don’t think I’m exaggerating! I’ve eaten a lot of burgers in my life. Many have been those hockey puck burgers that you get at ministry events (I’ve worked with a lot of ministries and they are often all the same … those frozen patties from Sam’s Club that come in a box of 50 or 60 for about $20 or something like that). They’re cheap and will fill a stomach; you just pray that they have cheese and plenty of condiments there.

Arepazo Latin Foods 904 Knox Abbott Drive Cayce, SC

A couple Saturdays ago (9-24-16) a new Latin restaurant opened near my house in Cayce. I made plans with Kara (of the First College Ministry) on Sunday to go that Monday for lunch. My only previous experience with Colombian/Venezuelan cuisine was when I got talked into cooking a Colombian meal for the weekly free International lunch a few years ago at the BCM when I worked in College and International Ministry. The only information I had was what two Columbian exchange students told me that their mothers said to do and Google to fill in the rest. I was told that I managed to make it fairly authentic, but have never had anything to compare it to. Until now!
