Meals in 10 Minutes or Less

A nutritious, home-cooked meal in 10 or less? Impossible? Not with a little advance prep work. In honor of Miss Mustard Seed's soon departure into the Big Wide World on her own, Abundance House is posting a break down of the 10 min. or less meal. We pray it is a blessing to meal planners in need of super quick, home-cooked meals.

Note: All items need to be prepared in advance and stored properly in refrigerator. Because we want to provide super quick options for super busy families, ingredients included in this chart require 30 min. or less of advance prep work or can be cooked in a crockpot overnight. Any and all ingredients can be switched out to fit individual needs and/or tastes. This chart is merely a jumping off point for the imagination. 2nd Note: Some have used this advance prep as a date with marvelous results. Cooking together is reported to be quite romantic for some couples and appears to rank high for date ideas.

Also, salads and pasta dishes can be prepared and stored in mason jars for super duper quick grab and go meal options. Attaching eating utensils to the side of the jar with tape, or some other way, would enable children to pack their own lunches with ease. Note for when using salad dressing in salads with greens and/or pasta:  the quality of the salad may be diminished by adding dressings too far in advance. They can be added in advance but may result in soggy salads if too long a time between their addition and eating occurs. Different dressings produce different results. Unfortunately, some of what works best can only be discovered by experience.

Okay, here's how this works. Take 30 minutes early in the week, many choose Sunday afternoon, and prepare/cook desired ingredients. This won't likely take over an hour and may be completed in as little as half that time. Once ingredients have been prepared and cooled, place in desired storage container and store in refrigerator. When meal time rolls around, grab a base, choose a protein, throw in/on your veggies and/ add-ins, toss them together, or layer them on a platter, and viola' ! You and your family are eating a meal in 10 min. or less. Choosing to wait until actual meal time to cook the meat/protein may increase kitchen to table time. However, if cooking sliced or chopped meats, the meal can still clock in at 30 min. or under, even if you make your own salad dressing/sauce from scratch!

Another option, except for some of the greens, is to choose your ingredients and create a soup by adding broth or vegetable juice and heating in a pot. If using ingredients cooked in advance, soup too is possible in 30 minutes or less. How comforting would that be on a cold wintry night when served with a side of crusty bread and/or fresh salad?


  • pasta of choice 
  • rice  
  • salad greens  
  • dried beans   
  • any other family favorite: veggie noodles, egg noodles, etc.
  • Chicken  
  • Steak - can be grilled or prepared according to family preferences in advance OR sliced/cubed while uncooked then quickly cooked in pan for immediate use (Could consider marinating with sauces or rubs that fit family taste preferences)  
  • Roast  
  • Fish  
  • wild game 
  • family favorite
Veggies/Other Add-ins:
  • too many choices to list individually!  
  • vegetables: chopped, minced, sliced, cubed, grated, cook or uncooked 
  • Spices: innumerable options
  • Sauces: meat, tomato, cheese, white, Alfredo
  • Fried egg
  • shredded cheese
  • crushed chips
  • croutons
Using this approach for creating meals can also allow leftovers to be re-served in original new ways that hopefully won't elicit groans from those eating. Every family has seasons when preparing meals isn't able to take a lot of time. Thankfully, those seasons don't last forever. There will be days for simmering, stirring, and chopping for hours, if a person wants. When that isn't possible and time isn't there, a healthy quick option exists. Family meal time need not be sacrificed on the altar of busy. 

To super quick meals and those who eat them!

A Week's Menu Using Planned Leftovers

Planned leftovers. What are those? They are leftovers a cook plans on having leftover at the end of one meal so that they can be incorporated into another meal later on. Here's a week's sample menu using  planned leftovers. No leftovers planned? No problem. These meals can also be prepared with unplanned leftovers that just happen to end up in the fridge together. The meals in the menu are neither gourmet nor complicated. They are all very basic, simple meals. The purpose of this post is to share how a person can cook once and eat twice. Doing so can provide not only a home-cooked meal but also a sense of calm sanity for super busy days.

Monday noon: mac 'n cheese or goulash
Monday Supper: steak, baked potato, and veggie of choice

Tuesday noon: chili
Tuesday Supper: spaghetti and sauce of choice

Wednesday noon: sliced steak and garlic pasta - made with leftover steaks and spaghetti noodles
Wednesday Supper: chili mac using leftover macaroni from Monday noon and chili from Tuesday supper

Thursday noon: Ham 'n Bean soup
Thursday supper:  potato, egg, and cheese scramble using leftover potatoes from Monday supper and leftover shredded cheese from Tuesday noon's chili

Friday noon: roast beef sandwiches and side
Friday supper: Pizza and salad

Saturday noon: turkey tetrazinni using turkey cooked in crockpot day before and any leftover spaghetti noodles
Saturday supper: vegetable noodle beef soup using leftover veggie sides, ham 'n bean soup, and roast beef from earlier meals throughout the week. Can be complemented by adding side sandwiches and/or salad

Obviously, fast food doesn't have to be takeout and/or drive-thru. If even quicker cooked-from-home meals are needed, a half-hour of advance preparation early in the week can set the stage for an entire week's worth of meals that require 10 minute or less to get on the table. We'll chat about that tomorrow.

Gotta go stir that pot of veggie beef and bean noodle soup.

Note: Sunday is "Fend for Yourself" day at Abundance House so it has not been included in the week's menu.

No Medical Situation Requiring Abortion

No Medical Situation Requires 3rd Trimester Abortion or Killing the Baby! -Dr. Lawrance K. Koning, MD, FACOG
Steve ShultzFrom Steve Shultz (Founder of BCN News, The Elijah List) - I was stunned watching the debates to see how readily Hillary Clinton was to show approval of partial birth abortions right up until the time of the baby's birth. And I was thrilled to hear Donald Trump say with conviction, "THAT'S NOT OK WITH ME!"
In 1973, I graduated from Christian Academy with Larry Koning. Now he's Dr. Lawrence Koning, MD, and an OB/GYN specialist in Corona, CA. After watching the same debate last night, he posted a quote on his personal Facebook page which I share below.
This morning I asked Lawrence if I could share it with our readers. He thought about it only for a moment and sent back this message, "Do it!"
Dr. Lawrence Koning wrote:
October, 20, 2016: "As an OB/GYN physician for 31 years, there is no medical situation that requires aborting / killing the baby in the third trimester to 'save the mother's life.' Just deliver the baby by C-section and the baby has 95+% survival with readily available NICU care even at 28 weeks. C-section is quicker and safer than partial birth abortion for the mother."-Dr. Lawrance K. Koning, MD, FACOG

Next Great Awakening

There seem to be more guest posts than usual here at Abundance House, but I don't want anyone to miss these words. So...today we are featuring another word from The Elijah List. May you enjoy celebrating God tabernacling with us during this week of Succot aka The Feast of Tabernacles.

Abundantly Blessed

"On Yom Kippur I Saw the Next Great Awakening!"
by Ivan Roman, Medford, OR

As I waited on the Lord on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), the Lord spoke to me. I saw a flaming sword and heard the word, "Awakening."

I then heard, "I'm awakening My people to the truth of their sonship."

If you have been in the Church for any length of time, you have heard prophecies about another great awakening or a great revival coming. I believe this is true,but the greatest awakening coming is when the Church realizes how good God is and how He sees us as His beloved children.

This next "awakening" can't be stopped! Instead of being performance-driven and goal-oriented, it's coming out of our eternal position in Christ. The fire on the sword is burning religiosity in our hearts that keeps us striving to get God to do something that He deeply desires to do and has even promised to do.

The orphan spirit that operates in legalism and performance is being exposed.

I saw ministers burnt out from striving to get God to move, and the people following them grew more and more exhausted as well.

New Strategies Out of Sonship and Rest

I then heard, "Cast your net on the other side."

Luke 5:4-6, "When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, 'Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch.' Simon answered and said, 'Master, we worked hard all night and caught nothing, but I will do as You say and let down the nets.' When they had done this, they enclosed a great quantity of fish, and their nets began to break."

Sometimes it requires us getting exhausted in human effort before we stop long enough to listen to the voice of the Father. New strategies are coming this year out of sonship, out of rest, that will birth ideas and cause the Church to come alive and bring in the harvest with ease.

The word connected to Awakening this year is the word "Rest."

Not rest as inactivity, but resting in the Father's love and hearing Him and obeying.

I also heard, "I want My people to live with expectation of what I'm going to do again."
Unbelief is being dealt with in our hearts as we enter this new year. Out of the revelation of God, as not just Father but beloved Dad, we will possess the faith of children again as we receive the joy of our salvation.

A Lifetime of Favor

The revelation of living in the continual favor of the Lord is coming upon us. Favor is not seasonal; favor is what Christ declared upon reading Luke 4:19, "...the year of the Lord's favor." Not just a year but a lifetime for those in Christ.

We are transitioning from a sin-based understanding of Christianity, where God's whole plan was to get rid of sin to get us and to Heaven, to a theology rooted in the Father's desire as found in Ephesians 1:3-5:
"All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure."
I prophesy a great awakening! One in which the Church will be awakened to the truth of their position as sons and daughters of a loving, merciful Father. This awakening will lead to countless souls being won for Christ, innovative ideas that shift cultures, but ultimately it will detox the Church from religious entanglements that have hindered our ability to see the Father the way Jesus told Phillip. "If you've seen Me, you've seen the Father" (John 14:9).

I prophesy we are in the greatest reformation known to man, where our understanding of the nature and character of God is being transformed from "sinners in the hands of an angry God" to "children in the hands of a loving and merciful Father."

Take time this year to slow down from the religious activities that are burning you out and spent time listening to voice of your heavenly Father. More will be produced out of those who have been detoxed out of performance-based religion than those still striving to please God. Lovers produce more than servants.

The Chief Cornerstone and Embodiment of Grace

Invite Jesus, the very embodiment of grace, to be the capstone—the cornerstone—of your life. Then watch grace pour down over the mountains that have stood before you to become a level-plain. Grace will give you rest; grace will do for you what you cannot do for yourself.

"Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." Psalm 46:10

Our God is powerful and good, and we can rest, because we trust in His love. The God of grace is the initiator of your journey and He will complete it. Just as the sunrise hour is a time where life feels "still" and yet creation is alive with beauty, so you are being called into the stillness of trust that makes room for beauty to shine forth.

I will leave you with this verse: "The God of peace will soon crush satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you." Romans 16:20

Grace and peace in God will crush your enemy...He is our mighty Warrior and Defender. Be still. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

Thinking Differently

I don't know how much time has passed since I began sensing an urgency to align my thoughts with God's completely. The impression that what the media was showing wasn't truth and that the doomsday outlook is not the perspective God intends a Christ-follower to possess became unavoidably intense in my spirit. Scripture after scripture began to come to my remembrance in confirmation of these strong impressions I believe are the loving reminders of God Holy Spirit.  

At times the peace of God and trust in Him was so great I wondered if I had ceased to care. Alas, not so. A few quick tests to gauge whether or not it was the Peace of God or a lack of concern revealed my level of compassion and love for mankind to be at an all time high - and rising. Often a thought that perhaps I ought to be at least a little bit worked up about this or that would flit through. Yet no matter how much my thoughts attempted to chase away the peace of Jehovah Shalom, calm trust prevailed. It is prevailing still. 

The worse the situations look, the closer I feel to the Lord. The time when we are united together forever is closer than ever before. The future becomes more real every moment, and this fact has produced some of the most passionate desires I have ever experienced. Everywhere we look we can see the words from the Bible being lived out before us as. Things I used to wonder about are now crystal clear. Time has begun to transition, and I don't even know for sure what that entails. I just know it is so. Somehow I know that this is not the time for fear, doubt, striving, or any form of selfishness. This isn't about me. It is to be about Him. This is the time to put away childish, selfish desires and go all out for God and God alone. 

He is wooing me, drawing me to join Him in the shelter of the Secret Place. Amazingly, the deeper I enter into the Secret Place, the farther out into the harvest field He sends me. With so many new situations arising and acts of violence and terrorism being revealed, it has become very plain that I don't know enough to have a personal opinion. The only opinion worth having is His, God's. I don't know how to vote, but God inside of me does. I don't know what, where, or who is safe, but God inside of me does. I don't know whether I will need an item in the future or ought to bless someone else with it now, but God inside of me knows. He knows. He has always known. It is time for me to live as if I believe what I profess to believe. It isn't a time for me to spout off religious jargon or learned theological opinions of men. Now is not the time to be obsessed with myself, my desires, my wants, my plans, how people make me feel, my anything. It is time to be a follower of Christ. Period. Nothing more and definitely nothing less. 

And this is where one of the words in today's Elijah List postings comes in. Even though Rosh Hashanah has passed, today (October 12) is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, the words from the Lord are real and true. As you read the following word from Ken Malone I pray you are encouraged to step out in complete assurance in God and His perfect care of you because I believe it is true: God has wondrous surprises for us.

"God Has an October Surprise for You..."
by Ken Malone, Champions Gate, FL

The October Surprise

When the Lord spoke to me in August 2016 about the things that will begin to take place in October 2016, He said, "There is an October Surprise." I didn't know whether it would be good or bad. What we have to remember about a SURPRISE is that it is always a disclosure of things that have been hidden. The October Surprise is just beginning. As it turns out – it's not just one surprise but many surprises.

Below are some revelations the Lord said would begin at Rosh Hashanah, October 2, 2016:

Realignment of Relationships
The winds of apostolic change are blowing across the land and realigning you. The Lord is ready to reposition you for His Kingdom harvest. Some who have been with you in the past can't go to the place God is taking you. Be willing to cut unhealthy soul ties and move forward into an ordained destiny. At Rosh Hashanah (Oct. 2) the Lord will unlock brand new doors of destiny for you. Let go of your baggage. It can't go to the new place the Lord has for your destiny.

Realignment of Assignment
Jesus said that if it's not bearing fruit to cut it off. There is a realignment of assignment that is coming to you. Take inventory of what your ministry is doing. Is it bearing fruit? If it's not bearing fruit, it may be time to move on.

As we come into Rosh Hashanah (Oct. 2) the Lord is going to impart new assignments. With these new assignments will come another level of authority to accomplish His plan in the earth. Make sure that you discard old baggage and get out of baggage claim. Stop rehearsing your trauma and drama. A new, unusual and exciting assignment is coming your way.

Realignment of Vision
The Holy Spirit continues to send apostolic winds realigning your vision. How do you see? Do you see God bringing a greater awakening (National Revival) into the earth or do you see it having no hope? Do you see the way Heaven sees? Heaven sees in seven dimensions and Heaven responds to what it sees (see Zechariah 4:10 and Revelation 5:6).

Align your vision with Heaven and you will begin to receive heavenly results. Doomsday preachers offer little to no hope. It's because man is reacting to what he sees in the earth rather than responding to the vision of Heaven. There is hope if you begin seeing the way Heaven sees.

At Rosh Hashanah (Oct. 2) the Lord will impart new vision. His vision will release Heaven into earth. Will you respond or react? Prune your negative mindset that has no faith and begin responding in faith to Christ's vision. A new vision awaits you!

Realignment of Identity
Holy Spirit continues to send you apostolic winds to realign you for His Kingdom purpose. These winds are here to challenge your identity.
Some today have a false identity and as a result, they can't find their way. Those in LGBTQ community struggle with having a true identification.

It is also true that some within the Church have found their identity (or they have tried to find their identity) in pastors, programs, function and ministry. The co-dependency between ministers and sheep has created identification dysfunction. You're so busy with things you haven't found the "One Thing" (see Psalm 27:4).

Your distinction can only be found in Christ. Realignment of your identity is essential in order for you to fulfill His destiny in your life. At Rosh Hashanah (Oct. 2) a huge reset will take place. Be ready, forsake your former identity and go after Him and you will be found in Him (see Philippians 3:9). As you go after Him you will take on His character. In Him I live and move, and have my being (see Acts 17:28).

Realignment of Paradigms
The winds of apostolic change continue to blow in your life. These winds are blowing against the paradigms that keep you from moving forward into your Godly inheritance. Think differently! (Repent is from the Greek word, metanoiawhich means to think differently.) When John the Baptist and Jesus said, "Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand," they were saying, "Think differently because the Kingdom of Heaven is here."

At Rosh Hashanah (Oct. 2) watch as paradigm shifts begin to take place. Think differently. Heaven will open up over you and your inheritance will begin to come in. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

Entering with Thanksgiving and Praise

"Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name."Psalm 100 : 4

How do we enter the gates and courts of our God? With thanksgiving and praise. Sounds so simple, and it is. Simple, yes. Easy? Each one of us can answer for ourselves. Do we enter the gates and courts of our God in the manner He has instructed in His word, or do we attempt to barge in according to our own ways and customs? Do we know His word, the Bible, well enough to know He has provided instructions for us to follow?

As the seasons change with autumn's warm glow gently sliding into winter's chill  may each of us prepare not only our homes but our hearts as well. May we empty our hearts' closets and chase the dust bunnies out from under the furniture. Just as we purge our earthly dwelling places, let's sort through our hearts. What does God want to stay? What pleases Him? Which attitudes does He approve of? Does this method and/or behavior give Him all of the glory or is it my human attempt to do right? Once everything has been sorted, we can throw out the garbage and listen to God Holy Spirit's leading for rearranging our clean inner dwellings. (our hearts) 

Fall is a time for cleaning out and rearranging every area of our lives: body, soul, spirit. May each one of us enter in with thanksgiving and praise giving thanks to Him and praising His name.

Thanking God for each one of you,

Blowing the Trumpet in Zion!!! A word from the Lord

Good Morning! As I was wide awake in bed praying fervently it came to me that I could no longer remain in bed. I had to get up and send out a notice. I had to "blow the trumpet in Zion sounding alarm on God's holy mountain".

Fear, attempting to disguise itself as pressure, is trying to wreak havoc upon, in, and through the body of Christ. Brothers and sisters in Jesus are being hounded by this sensation of intense pressure as if they are human pressure cookers - without a steam release valve. The message being sent out like a clarion call in the Holy Spirit this morning is this:

Brothers and sisters in the Lord!!! Hear ye! Hear ye! It is no longer you who lives but Christ who lives in you. Christ in you is not under pressure. He is not afraid. He is not lacking. He is not worrying. Therefore, because it is He living in you and not yourselves, any fear, lack, or worry is not of Him, not of you, and is merely attempting to trespass in your life. Do not. I repeat DO NOT give it place. It is not real. THERE IS NO PRESSURE. It is a trick of the enemy. It is false, unauthentic; it only seems real. False Evidence Appearing Real. The enemy is trying to keep you out of your intended position of promise and destiny prepared for you by God. Do not. Again, I repeat. Do not allow yourself to be worried, fearful, or agitated. Christ has overcome the world and deprived it of its power to harm you. Everything is fine because of Jesus. Jesus has already taken care of this. These demonic spirits of pressure and fear are not victorious; they are not real. They are defeated in the name of Jesus. They have been deprived of their power to harm you - unless you give them the power to do so. Do NOT give them the power. I repeat yet again. Do not give them the power.

Go back. Return to the words the Lord has previously given through His Word and the prophets. You will see the provision of God in these words. He has sent His word of preparation by foretelling of this fiery season. The way to defeat the enemy has already been sent forth in multiple declarations. Despise not the words of the prophets. Read the words. Devour them. Eat them. Put them into practice. It matters not how uncomfortable it makes you feel. You are a child of God moved only by what you believe, and you are to believe the Word of God.

Do not determine the level of obedience you will walk in according to how something does or does not make you feel. This is not a life lived by feeling but by Truth. It does not feel "right" to turn the other cheek when our enemy strikes us. It does not "feel" right to defer to the interests of others. It does not "feel" right to love the unlovely, the criminals, those without Jesus. It does not "feel" right to seemingly allow wrong doing to continue, yet God has spoken forth in His word not to defend ourselves, rather we are to leave room for Him to avenge. "Vengeance is Mine. I will repay." He has said. 

Instructions With Promise

Each and every one of God's instructions contain a promise, a reason if you will, why we do not need to live as others who do not have hope through Jesus. During seasons of intensity we would do well to remember these promises and truths. It is when we are fraught with care and anxiety that we most need to recall who we are in Christ and where we stand in HIM. It is He who has made us and not we ourselves. We are HIS people, the sheep of HIS pasture. What would the sheep of God do? Would the sheep of God's pasture be worried about wolves, bears, or the butcher? No? Then this fear, worry, strife, anxiety threatening to strangle me cannot possibly be from God. If it isn't of God I don't want it. So, fear, worry, strife, anxiety, GET OUT OF here in the name of Jesus! You are trespassing against the covenant bought with the blood of Jesus.

Now, what does a worry free person do? What do they say? What does someone who is trusting in the Lord and the power of His might act and talk like? That is what I want to act and talk like. When pressure begins to build, STOP. Stop right there. Don't proceed any further. Regain focus. Allow the truth of God to trigger the release valve within. We may not have a Bible teacher in residence in our homes. There may not be someone knowledgeable in the Word of God present during times of pressure and crisis. At times such as this we must teach ourselves to walk in truth. There is a scripture, Psalm 16:7, that speaks of the heart instructing itself in the night seasons. God Holy Spirit has been sent to teach us, to instruct us in the way of Truth and Righteousness. We are not left helpless having to flounder about while we attempt to figure it out for ourselves.

My most heartfelt prayer this morning, brothers and sisters, is that every one of us stand firm in the Lord and the power of His might. That we remember who we are in Jesus. We remember what Jesus has done for us. We not forget the truth: we are in holy covenant with Almighty God. This covenant was purchased with the blood of Jesus. We are not of this world. When the pressures of this world threaten to overcome us God Himself is our release valve. Let the world do what the world does. Jesus in us has overcome the world and deprived it of its power to harm us. Jesus in us is calm, cool, and collected. Take a deep breath, let is out, and chill. God's got this. It's already taken care of. He already fixed it. Enjoy the green pastures and follow the Great Shepherd. He in us is victorious. Therefore, we are victorious. Victory, blessed blood bought victory.

Tomorrow we are going to tear this apart showing what this looks like practically. Sure, it's easy to have a head knowledge of the scriptures. I can spout off verses for other people's troubles too, but how do I take that knowledge and use it in my own life, for myself? That's where we are heading tomorrow, the nitty gritty of living Jesus.

May Jesus live big in us today,
Abundantly Blessed


Showing Up and Stewarding
