About Patterns of Evidence Exodus:
For more than 50 years, the vast majority of the world’s most prominent archaeologists and historians have proclaimed that there is no hard evidence to support the Exodus story found in the Bible.  In fact, they say that the archaeological record is completely opposed to the Bible’s account.  This view of extreme skepticism has spread from academia to the world.  The case against the Exodus appears to be so strong that even some religious leaders are labeling this ancient account as historical fiction.  Filmmaker Timothy Mahoney begins with the questions, “Is the Bible just a myth, or did the archaeologists get it wrong?”  He decides to tackle this issue wit a deliberate scientific approach.   After examining the details in the biblical text, he journeys across the globe to search for patterns of evidence firsthand.  The result is the most in-depth archaeological investigation into the Exodus from Egypt ever captured on film.   This scientific documentary’s goal is to communicate the TRUTH of the Bible and help equip believers with defending their faith and the Bible.
The DVD features stunning animations and a cast including narrator, Kevin Sorbo (God’s Not Dead, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), interviews with leading archaeologists including Israel Finkelstein, Kent Weeks, and David Rohl, and guest appearances by Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu and Shimon Peres.

Tuesday Night Menu

Yes, it is 8000 degrees outside.

Does that bother me?

Nope.

I am making SOUP!!!!!!!!!

I.  Love.  Soup.

My family is large, so I make 2 pots.  All the time.

Vegetable Beef Soup

Last night, I put a Balsamic Roast in the oven.  I also added potatoes and onions.  We ate supper, but had enough leftover roast to split.  1/2 of the roast went in the freezer for a chinese dish that I will be making.  The other 1/2 of the roast, the juices from the roast, the potatoes and the onions (as well as the leftover peas) went into this soup.

I added a bit more water.

Seasoning

1 bay leaf

Oregano

Basil

10 oz bag of frozen corn, thawed

It is yummy!  I have already had the broth :)

ZUPPA TOSCANA SOUP

1 onion, chopped

3-4 cloves garlic

Seasoning

2 tsp. red pepper flakes

28 ozs. chicken broth

2 c. water

1 c. heavy whipping cream

1 bag of baby spinach (you can also use Kale or Swiss Chard)

Cook sausage, garlic, onion, bacon, seasoning, and red pepper flakes in soup pot until browned.  Pour a little bit of chicken broth in your pot and scrape of the bits on the bottom of the pan.

Add the rest of your chicken broth and water.

Add your potatoes and cover while on medium heat to get your potatoes tender.

Once potatoes are fork tender, add in the heavy whipping cream and let simmer.

About 5 minutes before serving, stir in your spinach (I chopped mine because my crew isn’t fond of eating ginormous leaves).

Let the spinach cook down and serve with parmesan sprinkled on top.

About Pizza Ranch:

mail.google.com

Adrie Groeneweg had a dream that started in Hull, IA, in 1981, when he was just 19 years old.  It was simple.  Why does everyone have to drive out of town to get a pizza?  With just six specialty and single topping pizza recipes developed by Adrie’s mother, Lorraine, Pizza Ranch was born.  Pizza Ranch’s vision and mission is to glorify God by positively impacting the world and to give every guest a legendary experience.  They have 190+ locations across 13 states including Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nebraska, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado.
About The Living Hope CD project:
On June 2, 2015, Pizza Ranch released a CD called Living Hope containing twelve songs from many of their favorite Christian artists.  Most of the songs are brand-new and written exclusively for this CD around the theme of Hope.  Artists include Colton Dixon, Francesca Batistelli, Ellie Holcomb, Sidewalk Prophets, Kevin Max, Bart Millard, Passion Band featuring Kristian Stanfill, Michael W. Smith, and Mark Schultz.
The CD will be available to purchase for $5 plus tax exclusively in Pizza Ranch restaurants or for download at pizzaranch.com/livinghope through August 31.
From Adrie Groeneweg, President & CEO of Pizza Ranch, Inc.:  “This album has a very special meaning for Pizza Ranch.  Although Pizza Ranch is not in the music business, many things have been happening, conversations have been taking place and doors have been opening for this album.  Through these events, I believe it was obvious that God has been behind this for His specific purpose and putting it on our hearts to collectively create this project.  As such, we call this our miracle album, Living Hope.”
