Cabbage leek potato soup with broccolini and chili sauce

Turkeys become scarce and sell for outrageous price. We can still celebrate Christmas without turkey. We can keep the Spirit of Christmas alive with simple budget meal and by seeing Jesus in the whole story of the Bible.

Remembering Christmas festive isn’t all about food: turkey, ham, salad and cake or pudding. It is all about Jesus and what He had done in our lives that we meet through food: posting, sharing and giving of our love to Jesus. God’s message is one of Love, Peace, Hope and Joy. Life is a wonderful gift from God.

I am so glad I could share my gift from God with everyone through my creation, experimenting and all my weakness. As I preserve along the path God had plan for me, depending on His strength to sustain me, expect to see miracles-and I will and certainly did see it in all of my cooking and baking continuously because I choose to live by Faith, rather than sight. Thankfulness to God for all His helps.

Take your tastebuds on a wonderful adventure with me. The White Christmas festive meal of soup that has white, green and red colour in a blue bowl. It represent earth as the blue bowl, white soup God, green broccolini is pasture and red chili sauce is the fresh water. That mean God is with us everywhere no matter what we serve on Christmas. He will provide continuously.

My soup is creamy, comfort, hearty and delicious to enjoy with watching TV about Jesus that’s a remembrance what Christmas is all about. Let’s cook!!!
