Monday, June 28, 2010
In a world that's so fast paced and uncertain, sometimes we feel like we're going it alone. Tuesday is a day I have set aside for you. I want to remember you in my prayers. I don't claim to have any special powers, or any special favor with our heavenly Father. Just a love for the Lord and you, my friends.
If you have a prayer request please leave a comment. You don't have to give any information you don't want to. And if you'd rather just leave a comment stating "unspoken", that's fine.
I want you to know that you will be prayed for, not only by me, but anyone who desires to touch heaven for you on this day too. If you'd like to also pray, then please, pray for the person's comment above yours.
Have a blessed day.

Monday - beef enchiladas (I had already browned some taco seasoned ground beef in the freezer)
Tuesday - Chicken pot pie, lemon meringue cupcakes AND strawberry turnovers. Yes, that was two desserts! Not only did I fix our dinner, but took a meal to some friends!
Wednesday - Chef salad night
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - This is our "date night" (Ruby Tuesday) both of us had the salad bar.
Ok, Saturday....well, we were out doing "research" for a new phone. Our contract is up in July and I don't think I want to stay with the blackberry curve so we were just checking to see what's "out there". Plus, a little shopping on the side for hubby. We came home even more confused that when we left the house as to the phone situation! While we were out, we just grabbed a Quiznos sandwich for dinner.
Sunday we ate with my sister and her family. I made an apple crisp to take. The rest of the meal was on her! WooHoo!
So that was my week. I'm not sure how you feel about our "Date Night" on Friday and the sandwich on Saturday. I mean, would that be thought of as "cheating" ? LOL. We're going out of town later this week. Paul's niece is getting married so we're going to North Carolina and I don't really want to buy groceries until we get back, so maybe I'll redeem myself by still living out of the pantry until then! (to be fair, and all... LOL)
I want to hear how you did if you participated! No judgement if you didn't finish, or had to run to the grocery store. Just share. Maybe we can all get some inspiration and ideas for the next time. (either latter part of July, or August)
Don't forget to link up if you post, or just leave a comment if you'd prefer!
Thursday - Grilled hotdogs, slaw and salad. (I used the French Dressing I had made and blogged about here)

(one of my fave's!)
1 TBSP olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup bell pepper chopped
1 clove minced garlic
14 oz can whole tomatoes (chopped and drained)
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp pepper sauce
I've put up McLinky for you to share your freezer meals, bulk cooking, tips or recipes. Or if you just want to show us your accomplishments for your oamc. We'd all love to see! Please be sure to link back to this so everyone can see. You can take the button to the right and put on your blog, or not. It's ok, just link back to here...and leave a comment too. Have fun!
the serious stuff: Freezer Foods Friday© is my name for this event. I just ask that you don't copy that name. I love that there are others excited about making "freezer meals", and I encourage that, please use a different name other than Freezer Foods Friday. Thank you for being a sweetie about that!

Have you wondered what the button in the right margin "Prayer Request Tuesday" was all about? (the one at the top with Jeremiah 29:2 scripture reference?). I've been thinking a lot lately of how we're instructed to lift each other up and pray for one another. On my facebook page, a while back, I asked if anyone had any prayer requests. I was touched and amazed at all the responses I received. At the same time I was convicted that I had not been praying for my sisters as I ought, and then I happened on a blog where the question was asked "How may I pray for you today". I was so moved by that act of love that I decided I would do the same on my blog, in hopes that around this blog-world, we could cover the whole week in prayer and "bear one another's burdens".
How it works: If you have a prayer request, leave a comment. You don't have to give any particulars you don't want to, and if you'd rather just leave a comment stating "unspoken", that's fine. If you'd like to pray, then please, pray for the person's comment above yours. (A "prayer chain" of sorts).

Oh! I want to tell you...I am not a fraud! In case some of my local friends saw me at the seafood market this morning, I was running an errand for my mother! Honest! LOL

I'm going to, starting tomorrow (MONDAY) and wanted to know who wants to join me? You may spend only $5.00 for food stuff. Period. The rest of the meals, snacks, whatever have to be from whats on hand in the house. (Quick! go shopping today! LOL) .
If you want to play along, leave a comment here.
Also, just so we're not looking into our pantry and seeing only creamed corn and potato chips, and in the freezer some ground beef. (all hypothetical, of course!) if you need help coming up with recipes for what you have on hand, comment on it and let's all help each other out with some ideas or recipes.
Sound like fun? This is going from Monday to Sunday (yeah, I know, not a full week but almost) On the Monday after that, I'll put up a McLinky and we can all link up and tell how our week went.
So, who's in? I'll be doing PANTRY CHALLENGEs through the year, so if you didn't get in on this one, just keep checking back.
Oh, and if you'd like to take the button up top, and link back here, PLEASE feel free! The more the merrier!
Ok, now, comment and tell all who is in!

They're not hard at all, and , well... they keep a good while. But, I've never had to worry about 'em lasting past six weeks! LOL

I followed her instructions and made it this weekend. Her instructions were perfect! I must confess, I've never sewn a zipper before! Those of you who know me probably are gasping in disbelief, but yes, it's true. (as Blue Oyster Cult parody plays in the background... Don't Fear the Zipper....)This is mine...
