Happy Saturday guys! How is everyone holding off on the East Coast? I hope you are all well and safe!! I am just praying that nothing catastrophic happens there, and perhaps this is just a
little big reminder that all we are ever promised is today! So let's live today.
And by the way, thank you so much for the comments on my last post about life! I truly appreciate every single word you guys leave me.
So yesterday G-Dawg (Greg) and I resumed our wedding venue hunt and went to the Long Beach Museum of the Arts. :D
This was the "house-turned-restaurant" building which was built in the 1800s! It had a rather old atmosphere to it and it sort of took us back to the actual 1800s. This restaurant was part of the whole museum as well.
While I usually appreciate "rickety" type buildings and all, we both knew that most of the guests, especially the older ones, would not appreciate it! (At least not the Korean parents haha)
Before we hit this location, we specifically prayed that the Lord would show us if this is the one or not.
Well lo and behold, after we met Andrea, the coordinator, the calculations turned out to be a whopping $1835! Wow, like...are you serious?! And it didn't include that much in the package either!
Haha! So we definitely knew this wasn't the right one since it is even more expensive than the Franciscan Gardens. The Franciscan Gardens had a lot more included in the package as well. :D
The ceremony and reception would have taken place outdoors, but we were relieved to know that this was not it. :)
At first we were a wee bit discouraged, but we trust that even with the little things such as a wedding venue, God will direct our paths.
And besides, that is nothing a good ole pancake stack can't fix. Right?
Cottage Rice Flour Pancakes
- 1 C rice flour (from health or Asian markets)
- 1 C raw rolled oats
- 1 tsp baking powder+1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 TBSP ground flax (optional)
- 1 TBSP coconut oil (can sub with other oil)
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 C almond milk
- 1/4 C cottage cheese
- First, mix all the dry ingredients together. Make sure there are no lumps in the bowl.
- Add all the wet ingredients and thoroughly whisk.
- On a heated pan/skillet (on medium heat), lightly spray with PAM.
- Ladle about a little less than 1/4 C of the batter onto the pan and spread evenly.
- Flip the pancakes when they are lightly browned on one side.
- This will make approximately 3 happy servings. :D
Remember Mr. Smiles? He says "hi" in the back.
I hope you have a wonderful marvelous blessed Saturday and weekend everyone!!
