divine intervention

Sometimes God does funny things around us to show us that He's looking out for us.

Like giving you a Full moon 3.5 weeks before your baby is due. {It could happen at ANY moment, right? I mean I'm not antsy or anything...}

Or...making the black beans in your fridge spoiled as you were pulling together ingredients to come up with a pre-dinner snack.

Seriously. Black beans? What was I thinking?

This little salad is similar but different to a recipe you may have tried before: Crunchy Tomato and Cucumber Salad. 

I like to keep you on your toes people.

If you, too happen to be seeking a little snack, and you too happen to have all of these ingredients, AND a commemorative football bowl to kickoff the first NC State Game of the season, you too, should make this yummy salad.

I pinky promise I won't make you put black beans in it.

Parmesan Zucchini and Tomato salad 
1 zucchini, sliced thinly into crescents
1 pint cherry tomatoes, rinsed
1/4 cup red onion, sliced thinly
1 clove garlic, minced
Juice of 1 lemon
2 Tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper, to taste
2 Tbsp fresh grated parmesan cheese

Combine all ingredients into a bowl and serve cold. 

"But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercyand good fruit, impartial and sincere." James 3:17
