How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
In her most recent visit with us, granddaughter, Virginia Rose, decides to don her Amazing Chef apron once again so we can make frozen chocolate-banana pops. Yes, we've made these before, and Virginia, who asks me which one of her teeth is the "sweet" one, savors this treat, which is both healthy and indulgent at the same time.
She peruses the recipe card and retrieves the utensils we need.
I get out the chocolate chips and olive oil for the gooey coating.
Virginia peels and slices the bananas, and inserts each with a popsicle stick.
We then pop these babies into the freezer for thirty minutes. About five minutes before they're due to reappear, we get busy with the chocolate mixture. Virginia measures the chips, not without sampling a few!
Adds the tablespoon of olive oil,
and it's ready to go into the microwave for easy melting. Once done, Virginia stirs the mixture until smooth, and dips each banana carefully, coating them as best she can.
And it's back into the freezer again to solidify the chocolate. And though she has to wait two hours for that to happen, Virginia is rewarded for her efforts and patience.
Sweeter than honey? You bet!
But even sweeter is the Word of God. One day, Virginia will grasp that eternal truth and, I pray, will choose to live by God's "sweeter than honey" commandments.
May we all do the same.
