October is National Popcorn Poppin’ Month!
Fact: I don’t watch a lot of movies.
Opinion: Popcorn is the absolute best snack to eat while watching a movie.
Or maybe that is a fact? What is your favorite movie snack?
(makes four servings, 1 cup each)
- 4 heaping cups popped popcorn
- 1/8th cup honey
- 1/8 cup Thai Peanut Sauce
- Put popcorn in a large bow.
- Heat honey and Thai Peanut Sauce in a small saucepan over medium heat. Continue stirring until smooth.
- Pour honey mixture over popcorn. Mix so that all popcorn is coated in the honey mixture.

If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s complaining.
- I’m tired of sitting.
- The lesson is boring.
- The WiFi is inconsistent.
- Gas is expensive.
- Traffic is slow.

Yep, I could whine your ears off. The following ten verses are intended for me.

September is National Honey Month and National Rice Month
So I’m sitting here looking through my pictures of teriyaki cauliflower, and it occurs to me that this meal would be basically impossible to eat with chopsticks.
I could probably eat the cauliflower with chopsticks, but rice and peas? What was I thinking?
Oh well. The pictures look decent. I’ll just grab a spoon before I eat this.
- 1 head cauliflower
- 3/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tbs. honey
- 1 tbs. freshly grated ginger
- green onion
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly coat with non-stick spray.
- Chop cauliflower into bite-sized florets. Roast cauliflower for 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, combine soy sauce, honey, and ginger in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Remove cauliflower from oven and stir into sauce. Return cauliflower from pan and bake an additional 10 minutes.
- Serve over rice and top with green onion.

Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author of Lies Women Believe, wrote,
Most people–even Christians–have unthinkingly exposed themselves to so much deception that they do not even realize they are being deceived (35).
Every day, we are vulnerable to an attack from Satan. He “holds out the glittering promise of ‘real life'” (32), desiring to “win our affections, influence our choices, and destroy our lives” (32).
On our own, we are defenseless. Like a rose in a hurricane, we can do nothing to stop the onslaught. Thankfully, we don’t have to fight alone. The verses below show that when we are vulnerable to Satan’s lies, God is ready with the truth.

My story today has no relation to the recipe. Instead, I thought I would share with you these two photos from 1 year ago.
I’ve never read the book Backwards Beauty, but the short videos are pretty funny.
The author of Backwards Beauty, Jessie Minassian, takes a satirical approach to showing girls, “You have a beauty the world doesn’t understand.” After listening to her interview a few years ago on Focus on the Family, I came to appreciate her “completely illogical” approach to to teaching girls to view themselves through God’s eyes. She gives her readers “10 steps to feel your worst!”

The day after I first made this hummus, I ate it at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s that good. It’s also incredibly easy to prepare. Snickerdoodle hummus is made of simple ingredients including cashew butter, honey, and (of course) cinnamon. I love to eat it with carrots or cinnamon tortilla chips, but all you really need is a spoon!
