Garlic Pickle|www.foodieadamcookieeve.com Garlic Pickle, a step by step recipe - Garlic pickle devotee, I am :) One of the specialty pickles made by my mom-in-law. This garlic pickle is not a deep fried pickle with less salt and spiciness, more like a garlic thokku. The chunks of garlic definitely makes you an addict. I can eat it at  any point of day with any simple food that I take, be it dosa, curd rice or rice. Check out another specialty of my MIL, the sweet tangy mango pickle on the blog.

#FoodForSoul - where there is no vision, the people perish says proverbs 29 :18. Keep your vision infront of you, which means keep something in front of you. It might be even symbolic, that reminds you of what God has promised. Might be a key ring of the key of your future home, infant baby outfit for your new born, a new to be used wedding album for your marriage, Keep it in front of you, thank God daily for that promise God has made in your life. And you will see you are moving towards your vision consistently. I happened to hear about how Conrad Hilton, founder of Hilton Hotels journeyed with God. Back in 1930s, he saw an article in the magazine which showed a magnificent storey-ed hotel which said 'the world's most famous hotel', God dropped the dream in his heart, that he would own the hotel. In the natural, it seemed impossible but he had the guts to take the seed take roots. Got a scissors, cut the piece of article, and he stuck the picture of the hotel in his desk. As he saw the article daily, he thanked God. It was 5 yrs, 10 yrs, Nothing seemed moving but he was actually moving towards his vision. Finally after 18 years, he ended up owning it. Most of us do not see the promises of God happening in our lives because we keep our heads down focussed on our problems. God wants to remind us that all we can see will come to us.
Now I am heading to buy something, to keep in my closet :) how about you ? Definitely I will show you, on the day my vision comes to pass! Say with me today, the day to our vision is not so far :) With God, all things are possible :) Now to the lipsmacking Garlic pickle recipe :)
