Cilantro "Cream" and Company

We had our God-family over for Mexican last night. To make the black bean and rice soft tacos a little more tasty, we whipped up some cilantro soy cream to go along-side the salsa.

In blender, whip:

1 block of silken firm tofu
juice of a lime or two
1 jalepeno, seeded
handful of cilantro
bit of chopped onion
pinch of salt
pinch of sugar
pinch of cumin

Use as chip dip and sour cream subsititute.

Much better than the meal: the company, conversation and comraderie. Our evening prayers were warm, all 9 of us gathered around the prayer corner raising our spirits to God together. A rare treat for us, who live 45 minutes away from the closest Orthodox Church.

Thank you, God, for all the good things you have given us this past day.


  1. Just found your blog recently so I hadn't seen your prayer corner before. It would be lovely if there was a site where there were pictures of people's space, as I was mystified when I first became Orthodox about what to do. Would you consider dedicating a post to that?

  2. I really enjoy saying prayers with others, on the rare occasion that we have Orthodox guests here to pray with (besides family)...sounds like you had a grand time together!
