Wednesday's Weekly Recipe

Fall is my absolute favorite season! I love the oranges, reds, yellows and browns that fall brings to nature's pallet. I love the excitement and expectation of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year. Crisp air, falling leaves, football games, sweaters, boots, and a much needed break in the sweltering Mississippi heat are all things I love about fall. Fall just makes me happy. 

Some of my very favorite things about fall involve SMELLS!! Apples, Cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg, and vanilla all give me that cozy, wrap up in a blanket and read a book feeling! For me, fall begins with a shift in the smells in my house from "crisp and clean" to "warm and cozy".

So, before we start sharing recipes for appetizers, snacks, desserts, and casseroles for all those holiday events coming up in a few months,  lets get our homes smelling like fall! 

This is a new (to me) simmering potpourri recipe I'm trying this year. I'd love for you to try it too and let me know what you think!

1/2 gallon apple cider
3 cinnamon sticks
1 Tbs whole cloves
1 Tbs pumpkin spice
1 Tbs ground nutmeg
1 Tbs vanilla extract

Bring the mixture to a boil in a saucepan (I have one that I use specifically for this) and then reduce to low heat. Stir occasionally and add more cider or water when it gets low.  

Do NOT let it scorch...yuck! OH - MY- WORD!!!! It stinks sooo bad! (trust me on this)

Do you have a favorite simmering potpourri recipe you'd like to share? You can comment below or email us the recipe! We will share the recipes we receive!

noun: imago; plural noun: imagos; plural noun: imagines
  1. 1.
    the final and fully developed adult stage of an insect, typically winged.
  2. 2.
    an unconscious, idealized mental image of someone, especially a parent, that influences a person's behavior.

Imago is Latin for "image"

Imago was born out of our desire to accurately depict our desire for the women God has placed in our lives. Our heartfelt desire is, and always has been, to share the promise of Salvation through Jesus Christ, to share Christ's love with those who are hurting and in need, and to encourage each other to grow more and more into the image of Christ through Bible Study, Service, and Fellowship. 

Our butterfly is a beautiful representation of us... She is colorful, unique, beautiful, and a bit messy around the edges. 

While the word Imago does describe the Butterfly's stage in life... it is also the Latin word we translate as "Image".  When brought together, this gives us the definition of who we want to be...

"Women growing together into the image of Christ"

My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ  Colossians 2:2 (NIV)
