I don’t know about y’all, but I really missed Wesley Hour today. I missed getting excited for what we were going to get to eat, and seeing a lot of your faces, and smelling the smells, and hearing your laughter and multiple conversations going on at once. Andrew lovingly posted his chocolate chip cookie recipe the other day, and I thought, why don’t we do this every week?! So guess what! Every Sunday on our Wesley House blog, Sarah will be posting the recipe for a light, salty bite and a fancy, fun drink to make at home with your families as we re-create a country-wide Wesley Hour from home!
It gets even better. We wanted to actually take this a step further and combine this with our weekly midweek Bible study material. I truly believe in the midst of everything that appears to be lacking right now, God is reshaping us around an abundance of high quality community. As we’ve been checking in with you, it is becoming very obvious that God is on the move in your families and this very unique time with them. This could be an amazing opportunity to bring the loving, fun, engaging Christian community we have experienced on campus with Wesley into our homes with our families as we stay connected to each other from afar. Combining the warmth of Wesley Hour with the depth of midweeks could be a window to talking about Jesus and praying with your siblings and parents in new ways. Take pictures of what you make and/or of your families and share! Let’s keep as much as we can going and bring others into Wesley who normally couldn’t be there with us. – Alyssa
Wesley Hour Snack!
The snack we got the most feedback on this semester was the bubble bread! So take this one into your kitchen and share a bit of Wesley Hour with all the people stuck inside!
Snack – Bubble Bread
- 1/4 c. melted butter
- 2 tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan
- 1 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley (you can use dried)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 (16.3-oz.) can refrigerated biscuits
- Preheat oven to 350° and line a small baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together melted butter, Parmesan, parsley, and garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Cut each biscuit into 6 pieces and roll into balls.
- Arrange biscuits about 1/4″ apart from each other on prepared baking sheet. Brush biscuits with butter mixture and bake until golden, 25 minutes.
Drink – Cherry Limeade
Grab a pitcher and add these goodies to it for a cherry limeade that matches sonic in taste…did you know that you can also drive through sonic and get a bag of their ice for extra measure?
- 1 can frozen limeade concentrate any brand
- 2 liters Sprite OR 7-Up or equivalent soda
- 10 oz. jar maraschino cherries with juice
- 1 lime sliced for each glass
- pebble ice (optional)
- Chill all ingredients in fridge until cool.
- Slowly pour Sprite, melty limeade and cherries into a large pitcher and mix slowly to preserve carbonation.
- Pour over ice, sqeeze a lime
- Cheers to the Wesley House and enjoy.
