Another month of 2013 coming to a close. Crazy, right? Here's a wrap of my 2013 goals as of the end of February. As always, if you have any favorite recipes or scriptures in your memory bank, please share in the comments. . . Have a great Wednesday!
8 Can Taco Soup - Go ahead and laugh. I know what you're thinking? How does dumping eight cans of stuff into a pot qualify as cooking??? I hear ya, but I beg to differ. It was a new and improved Taco Soup recipe and it was really, really good. You can alter the level of spice by choosing a mild - hot green enchilada sauce. We went with medium. Yum. Brandon prefers this recipe over the one we usually make.
Three Cheese Ziti w/ Turkey - Easy and delicious. Leftovers were great. Winner!
NOT YO' MAMA'S BANANA PUDDING - Made this for our Thursday night supper club and I'd say it was pretty good! It got really thick which everyone seemed to like. Even though this isn't a dinner recipe I'm still counting it since I ate it for lunch the Friday after I made it. Don't judge.
Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken - Very good! The recipe says to pour the garlic/olive oil/brown sugar mixture over the chicken before baking, and I found that it was way to think to pour, so I ended up using a spoon to spread it on top of each chicken breast. Not sure if I did something wrong here, but it turned out great nonetheless.
February Scripture memory
"He will have no fear of bad news; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord." Psalm 112:7 (NIV) I found this verse especially appropriate and comforting as we were waiting for Clara's Retts testing results during the month of Feb. Brought calm to my soul.
"For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you." Isaiah 41:13 (NIV)
I finished 7 by Jen Hatmaker. Loved it. Such a good read and really makes you think about your priorities and areas of excess that draw you in time and time again. Hatmaker is witty with words and such a talented writer. I would love to do some type of personal experiment such as 7. Not a direct copy cat, but some type of experiment with the less is more mentality. Any ideas? Anyone want to do something like this with me? We could then write a book about it. Or just blog about it. :)
Next book on the horizon is Created to Be His Help Meet by Debi Pearl. I hope to start it in the next few days. And thanks to my friends Ashlie and Gillian, I have lots of books on the "to read" list. Thanks, ladies!
Operation computer clean up - yeeeahhhhhhh this one is still in progress. And by still in progress I mean I haven't even touched this goal since last month. Awesome.
Bring it on, March.
