shopping list

I can never seem to stay stocked up. Between make-up, toiletries, and other necessities, I can't seem to make ONE trip! They always seem to go empty ONE AT A TIME! These are the most recent purchases I've had to make or will be making this week....

-loose powder
- feminine products
-eye makeup remover

Although I can live without these....I can't!

350 degrees

I love trying new recipes or altering traditional recipes to be more nutritional. I try to enjoy less carbs......which is impossible for an italian!

I tried a new one today. I lightly breaded chicken breasts, baked them, and then laid them on top of a bed of spaghetti squash topped with spaghetti sauce. It was delicious and as you can guess, an alternative to chicken Parmesan.

On another note, a cute recipe I was given by a family friend is now going down as the most practical and easy in my cookbook...............

Roast Beef
1 Large Roast of Beef
1 Small Roast of Beef
*Place both Roasts in the oven. When the small roast burns, the large roast is finished. Easy enough

Singing a Song

Been going through a lot of disappointments in the last few weeks. There are so many needs in my family, loved ones, and in my own life. Along with the many wonderful scriptures I have been handed, my Auntie Pam also gave me the advice of finding a song to sing. This one has been on the radio every time I'm in the car. Whether it's God's word to me, or simply overplayed, it has been ringing in my ears all week:

There is hope for me yet
Because God won’t forget
All the plans he’s made for me
I have to wait and see
He’s not finished with me yet"

(Brandon Heath)
