My husbands favorite meal!

I don't even remember where I got the idea or what they called this recipe. What I can tell you is that my husband really enjoys it  when we have this his favorite meal.

Roast Beef
Green Bell Pepper, Orange and Red too(sliced)
Sliced Cheese(Your favorite)
Submarine Buns

Here's how I make it:
I put all the sliced veggies in a skillet with some A-1 and cook until things start to get soft.

When the veggies are almost done I put the roast beef in 2 stacks in another warm skillet with the sliced cheese on top, just until the cheese starts to melt.

When everything is done I put some more A-1 in the bun. Then I add the roast beef with the veggies being stuffed in last.

I cook a roast and then slice it for this meal. I freeze the slices in freezer bags in just the 2 stacks that I want so that I can pull it out one bag at a time. We also freeze the buns with 2 in each bag.

Oh, and for the sliced cheese I get a few slices of pepper jack but my husband prefers a horseradish cheese from the deli. Again, we just get a few slices each.

We always wait to eat this until after the kids have eaten something else. This saves us money, and makes it our special meal. However, it also means that I don't know if the kids would eat it.

It has officially started!

Summer has started for us. Yes we are still trying to get our school done.

However, we have started our re-enacting season.
 We spent Memmorial Weekend at Greenfield Village I'll try to post some pics later.

This next weekend we are off to another event close to our home. I thought it was funny that my Mom
made a comment about waiting for my niece and nephew to get out of that thing called public school before she can leave. She is just so used to me adjusting our schedule to leave when we want that she forgot about them attending public school. It struck me as funny. Must be those funny pregnancy hormones sneaking up on me. At any rate perhaps I will have some pics to share after this next event so that I can better show you what we do.

Well today I am thankful for our upcoming vacation. We leave in *gasp* 3 days. As always I have some very supportive help.

Several people have lent us carry-on size bags.

Family and friends are taking the kids so I can get things done. My grandmother is taking the kids today so I can get everyone packed. A close friend is taking them Thursday afternoon so I can do some last minute cleaning before we leave on Friday. Thank you God for providing this wonderful support system for my family. You are so good!

I am grateful for a wonderful husband! This past Sunday my husband stood with about 50 other men and did a courageous ceremony at our church. He took classes for several months and then did this ceremony. The pastor as well as one other witness also signed the paper. This is so that they can be held accountable for each other. This amazing RESOLUTION is now framed and hanging by our coat closet. Reminding both of us each day what he resolved to do.

Thank God for a godly leader, husband, and father! The first resolution is about being the spiritual leader of the family. So in answer to the song "Where Are You Men of Courage?" One of those amazing men is living right here in our home!

Thank you Jesus!

In a recent sermon our Pastor called us to be the salt of the Earth. I have been continually reminded of this sermon. Last night is a home fellowship it came back to me as we were reminded that sharing our faith with others is normal. The best way to share our faith is to live it out and freely share our stories with others. Thumping them on the head with our Bibles is a true turn off sure to make them stop listening.

 We need to be in this world but not of this world. So as were are different and just being ourselves we are salting the Earth. We need to remember that too much salt with destroy the same as it can destroy a meal. Just a little goes a long way.

 So as you go about your day let your light so shine that you are salt while not trying to be. Let God guide you as you salt for Him. Remember to thank Him for this great honor. To salt and lead His chosen people and guide them to Him.

This Tuesday I am grateful for a caring Mama. In just over 5 weeks we are all heading down to Florida. By all I mean my beloved, our 5 children, my mom, sister and grandmother. My mother demanded that DH and I plan a night out while she stays with the kids. Since there are so many different options down there than we have here this is great. Thanks Mom!

My wonderful Beloved's eyes lit up when I shared this with him. We are going to do a dinner/show combo that we couldn't afford to do with the kids. I am so excited and grateful that we are going to have a special night on the town while we are in Florida!

So, What are you doing?

What are you doing to stay in the Will of God? Do you spend time in his word daily? If so do you get up early or do this while the kids are busy? Do you pray all day? Do you have separate prayer times?

How are you sharing the Word with your kids? My beloved and I are trying to just read to the kids from the Bible. We have tried different devotionals just haven't found one for us yet. My beloved is reading a plan that the church handed out. I try to read about 10 chapters a day. My version of the 90 day plan. I read when I get a chance and when I get up before the kids. I want silence when I read. The kids are just too much of a distraction. I also try to pray as I think about things throughout the day. My Grandmother prayed about everything. If things went wrong or we couldn't find something her first thought was always prayer. I truly hope I pass this great legacy on to my children!

Now it is your turn to share what you do or are trying to do.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! What exciting or new things are you doing for your Valentine today?

I am planning to finish cleaning the house, make my husband pepperoni bread, his favorite dinner and cinnamon rolls for dessert. I have also recently started calling him my beloved. I think it is a sweet way to talk to each other and it is certainly hard to say in a harsh or raised voice. This has helped us in other areas. Today is a great day to start calling your spouse by a sweeter name. Perhaps they will pick it up and refer to you that way as well. I know my husband calls me his beloved as well as I call him my beloved. Give it a try and see what happens.

Remember Jesus is Lord!

What is Love?

That's right I asked what is love? With Valentine's day approaching next week I think a lot of us are focusing on what we should get on this special day.

But I ask you is it what your wonderful husband does on this day that says he does or does not love you?

Love is in the everyday, the here and now. It is not some day marked on the calendar. Does your husband surprise you with your favorite take-out-meal or dessert? Does he fill up your car with gas so you don't have to? Does he help with the children just to help you?

We have only one car so my wonderful husband always fills the gas tank. He often will tell me to feed the kids but wait for him to get home to eat myself. Only to surprise me with my favorite Gyro from our favorite restaurant. Sometimes he even gets the kids a pizza just to give me the night off. He often sneaks me some of my favorite types of chocolate which vary with my mood. My wonderful husband can follow my moods and knows just when I need these little things. He will often help me with the kids just because. I am not saying he is perfect I am just saying that he tells me he loves me in these everyday things.

So even if your husband misses Valentine's Day, is he telling you everyday in the here and now that he loves you? As my dear friend Courtney from Women Living Well says why not focus on giving this year instead of receiving? The bible does say it is better to give than receive. So, head over and read her post then tell me what special things you can think of to do for your husband this Valentine's Day.

Remember you are a blessing!
