Word: Rely

Bible Verse: “We know and need God’s love.” I John 4:16a

Bible Story: Elijah and the Angel (I Kings 19:1-18)
The story of Elijah shows us that we can rely on God for everything–even our next meal! Elijah was doing everything that God asked him to, and when he was hungry, God sent an Angel to bring food to Elijah.

Take it Home
Remember that we know and need God’s love — and that we can rely on God to care for us this week — by making some food in the kitchen!. Maybe you can be an “angel” and share it with someone 🙂

soulfood_granitasHealthy Orange Granitas

You will need: 4 oranges, 1 cup of water, 3-4 Tablespoons of honey, 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice, and zest from the orange peel (tops).

Clean and wash the oranges.

Cut off the top 1/4 of each orange–and a thin sliver from the bottoms so they will sit on the counter without rolling over.

Scoop out the orange flesh and juices and put it in a bowl and freeze.

Place orange “cups” on a plate and freeze.

Scrape the orange peel (lid) with a fork or a “zester” to remove the peel is tiny strands (about 1 tsp).

Puree the frozen orange mixture in a blender or food processor–adding the water, honey, lemon juice, and zest until smooth.

Adjust sweetness (honey) and pour into a 10″ x 13″ and freeze for 2-3 hours. Every so often, scrape the freezing mixture to break up the ice.

When the granita is frozen (no liquid left), “rake” it with the forks until glittery.

Scoop granita into frozen orange shells and serve. (Serves 4)
