2013 goals, October roundup

Only going to touch on the recipes and scriptures for my October roundup because, well, those are basically the only goals I worked on all month long. Better than nothing, right?

Banana chocolate chip muffins -  Of course I added some peanut butter to this batter and added more chocolate chips than the recipe calls for, which basically resulted in me wanting to eat these 24/7. And what I love about this recipe is you probably have most of the ingredients on hand.

Cheesy Pesto Bread - This takes like five seconds to throw together and puts a nice spin on just your regular ol french bread with dinner. Brandon LOVED it. We have actually made it several times over the last few weeks, last night included.

Chicken Tortilla Bake - This was really good. Only change I would make is using the hot rotel instead of the mild/regular. Brandon agreed. But we will make this again!

Cheesy Turkey Baked Pasta - Used ground beef instead of of turkey. Awesome! This made enough for six meals at least. Another win in my book.

Psalm 16:8 "I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken."

Isaiah 26:7 "The path of the righteous is level; O upright one, you make the way of the righteous smooth."

Such great promises in both scriptures. God is always, always, within a hands reach and because of this we will NOT be shaken, despite whatever circumstance may fall on our path. And with those less than ideal circumstances, He promises to make our path level and smooth. . . maybe not on our ideal timeline. . . but He will smooth our path, in His time. Guaranteed. And what hope and joy that promise can bring.
