Organizing Recipes

Image
I finally organized all my printed recipes into ONE binder, yes a very big binder!  I've been meaning to do this for a long time but only made the time this past week.  I do plan on organizing even further later when I type of copies of my favorite recipes in my cookbooks and print those out.  At that point, I will need another big binder most likely.  I also have some really old recipes in a cabinet that I no longer make (fatty food) and I may pull those out and type them up and print as well.  That way, if my daughter wants my recipes, she can have a digital copy and print her own one day.  I even have tons of recipes on my computer that I've never printed out or even tried before.  But that's for another day! Here are the categories I made: Chicken Turkey Beef Beans Meatless Pasta Sides Snacks Breads Breakfasts Beverages Desserts Other Household Health

The Law of Blessing From Obeying Gender Roles

Image
I've learned that whether or not you are a Christian, there is a law that seems to happen that whenever the man and woman step into their proper roles - the result is a blessing.  I dare you to try it.  I've done this for 20 years!  If the man fulfills his Godly role of being the provider and the head of the home and loving his wife as Christ loved the church and the woman fulfills her Godly role of being the keeper at home and in submission to her husband and respects him and his decisions - you can't help but be blessed!! During this time of quarantine we can see so many women acting like they are literally dying by 1. Being home and 2. Being home with their kids.  These women are so unaware of what they were made for.  Their children FEEL that they are unwanted, I know because I was one of them with a mother like that.  Let me tell you something women that are like this, listen to me and listen close.  It is time for you to SURRENDER .  You are called to sacrifice yo

Happenings This Week

Image
My life is virtually the exact same as before this pandemic, minus missing physical church services and going shopping other than groceries.  Life has actually been way busier for me as I'm cooking and baking more to utilize what we have on hand to meet our cravings. Some things I made (all homemade) worthy of note were: Cincinnati chili, Pintos/Onions/Potato Stew, Chicken/Kielbasa Jambalaya and then for desserts - blueberry muffins and cinnamon rolls.

Homeschool Room Re-Do

Image
We had purchased the last 2 years of homeschool curriculum for our daughter, grades 11 and 12.  I now have materials to school Preschool-12th grade in this house.  I had no idea how I was going to fit these new books on our already full shelves, there just wasn't any room.  I also have several bookshelves downstairs of non-homeschool books.  Here was the dilemma: The new books needing a home: The lack of space to store them: Those toy food items with prices on them are our math "store" right now.  You can see I have no space to put anything else.  But, I knew with organization and God, anything is possible!  Prayers go a long way as you will soon see. I also had our craft cabinet in the garage since we moved here, 3 1/2 years ago almost.  I really wanted it in the house and specifically in the homeschool room.  Just didn't think it was possible..  Well, I moved the small bookshelf beside the desk work area and them moved the easel where the bookshel

Burned Dryer - Out with the Old

Image
14 years ago we bought a used dryer for $99 and well... it caught on fire and thankfully the Holy Spirit nudged me to go check the dryer, ok, several nudges before I finally listened - to save the house just in the time!  It burned the back wires, thermostat, element and metal before I turned it off.  The top of the dryer was so hot, I almost burned my hand.  We were going to fix it but the appliance repair said it was too dangerous and to get a new one. Since it took a few days to deliver, I took the opportunity to do a deep cleaning on my laundry room.  I cleaned everything - like look at the dirty wire racks: Nice and clean now: We still have the washing machine we bought 14 years ago used too, I think its from the 80's originally.  All we've had to replace was the dogs (hooks in the agitator) and those are $3. I got the rug in New Mexico, I would decorate my whole house in this decor if I could!  Absolutely love New Mexico!
