Great morning!  I started a new, much much needed bible study this morning.  It's called "Stuck" by Jeannie Allen.  I have a feeling it's going to be hard but oh so worth it.  I think we all get "stuck" in our lives.  Whether its in our faith, our marriage, our household, our jobs, or our friendships.  We should all take the time to turn to God to help us move past one season and into a new one.  But, I , like so many try to handle or control it by myself.  I am looking forward to dedicating some much needed time to God.  I am going to try very hard to  go to Him in prayer and praise.

So bare with me while I write about my smiles and struggles throughout this study.  I am going to be as honest and heartfelt about where I am "stuck".  Hopefully you have some of the same struggles and we can laugh and cry together.

Until tomorrow!  Enjoy the beaYOUtiful day.

September 2 - weekly menu

Ok peeps - haven't posted in a while so I thought I'd get back in the groove with our weekly menu.  I've had lots of my friends asking me for my menus so documenting them here and sharing with you seemed like a good place to start!

This week is not real inventive because we seemed to be busy busy these days. But here goes:

Monday (I have a cold and needed a soup with a little kick):
Crockpot chicken chili (used 1/4 block of cream cheese only) and jalapeƱo cornbread (used can Of green chilis instead of pickled jalapeƱos)

Tuesday (football night):
Hotdogs/corn on cob/chips

Chicken stir fry/faux fried rice/mini egg rolls

Thursday (heading to yellow daisy festival for the day):
Spaghetti I had frozen already.  Put on crockpot for the day.  I always make a huge pot of spaghetti and freeze an additional meal.  Saves so much time.  

Crockpot salsa chicken:   6 breasts, bottle of salsa, package of taco seasoning.  Cook for 8 hrs on low.  Use in tacos with rice and corn.

Saturday:   All my boys will be at a Dove shoot all day so, my little Chica and I will be eating out!

Sunday (baseball tournament all day)
Roast beef with carrots/potatoes/onions in crockpot.   Bread in bread maker ( best breadmaker bread ever!) and fresh steamed green beans.

Well that's all folks!
