Life will have trials and life will sometimes be difficult at times but my thoughts are so, SO important. They are either life or death to our souls. As Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica said,
"Our life depends on the kind of thoughts we nurture. If our thoughts
are peaceful, calm, meek, and kind, then that is what our life is like.
If our attention is turned to the circumstances in which we live,
we are drawn into a whirlpool of thoughts and can have neither
peace nor tranquility."

It will look like this. Lookin good, right? No, not yet.
Chop up any veggies you have. I did two carrots, a bell pepper, and three potatoes. Cooking tip: News paper or plastic grocery bags help make clean up super easy and quick! Dump everything in the coconut milk/tomato mixture. Add your spices to taste. I added salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and cumin. Let simmer on low with the lid on for about 20-25 minutes.
All done! It doesn't look too bad now does it? :) There are a lot variations you can do here, for example, last week I added tilapia fillets. Clay really liked that. You could also add lime juice and cilantro, or crushed up tortilla chips on top. Or, you could add a curry mix. Just an idea to keep things a little interesting this Nativity Fast!
