Pumpkin Pilaf and Meeting Jesus

inspired last night's supper!
So, no recipe...
I just tried to imitate what she did, 
the huge difference being, mine was not cooked on a campfire...

The result was pure delight!
SO good😋

(I missed a picture of one step)
After soaked rice, sugared, spiced pumpkin and boiling water-soaked raisins
 are layered in the pan make a sauce of melted butter, white sugar...

Add milk or light cream and boiling water to pan, 
enough liquid to make enough sauce to barely cover pilaf...
Bake at 350-375 till rice and pumpkin are cooked!

Life is like a buffet with lots on display
to whet desire's appetite and keen delight!
This morning's Daily Bread Devotion
challenges us to 
'Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4

Just between you and me
Oh, wouldn’t it be grand
If we would find felicity
In love’s greatest command

And wouldn’t it be nice
To train our taste and touch
To glory in the sacrifice
Of second miles and such

The common bond of need
Makes us like family
Where we all shoulder word and deed’s

The common bond of grace
Levels the playing field
Where delight and desire chase
What soon turns into yield

Just between you and me
Let’s picture if we can
Beneath the faces that we see
Jesus as fellowman

Ah, suddenly want's wish
We'd reevaluate
Embarrassed by the empty dish
Beside our heaping plates

Just between you and me
Oh, wouldn't it be grand
If, as we/He reached out we would see
The nail-scars in His hands

And the King will answer and say to them,
 ‘Assuredly, I say to you, 
inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, 
you did it to Me.’
