So here it is...
Monday- Chick-fil-A copycat nuggets. This got bumped from last week's menu, so we'll do it tonight!
Tuesday- Chili. True confession. I've NEVER made chili before. Not from scratch, so I'm going to try my hand at it. I'll report back next week so you know how it turned out.
Wednesday- Chicken N Biscuits. This is a family favorite at our house. It's easy peasy and very yummy!
Thursday- Tenderloins. I'd never had a tenderloin until I moved to Indiana. They just don't have them in Michigan. It didn't take me long to realize how much my husband loves them and how easy they are to make at home. I pound out pork tenderloins until they're thin, coat in seasoned flour and fry in oil. That's it. Serve on a bun with condiments and it's like the State Fair all year long!
Friday- BBQ Chicken Pita Pizza. I made these 2 weeks ago and they were a hit. Super good. And the best part is that I made shredded BBQ chicken for our Super Bowl gathering last night. I have just enough left to pop into the freezer until Fri. Easy easy!
Saturday- Homemade pizza. Saturday night will be our family night. Friday I've got plans, so we'll let the girls pick a movie and I'll make pizza and we'll have fun hanging out!
So there ya have it. A pretty easy menu. And all things my kids will eat! Can't do better than that!
Aaron and I filed our taxes over the weekend and I was having a little bit of anxiety about it. I was pretty concerned we would have to pay this year, and we DON'T have the money for that. About 2 weeks ago, I was praying about my anxiety about it and I decided that I would pray that God would not only provide what we needed, but exceed what we needed. I decided I was going to pray for a $6000 tax return. Based on our previous filings, that's pretty much unheard of for us. I knew I was shooting for the moon praying for that. But, I'm learning that God can do more than I can ask or imagine. So, anyways, we filed our taxes on Saturday, and seriously guys, I almost cried because we're actually getting a little over $6200 back (!!!!!!!). God's hand was all over that and it was totally undeniable. We were sitting in church yesterday and Aaron opened his Bible app on his phone and the verse of the day yesterday was....
"Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced."- I Chronicles 16:11-12
Aaron showed me the verse and we both couldn't help but smile and again, give God the total glory for doing more than we could ever have prayed for! So, I decided to make this the verse of the week because I need to have it burned in my heart. I need to remember that God is still the same God he was 2,000, 6,000, 10,000 years ago. He didn't put his power on the shelf. And He hears our prayers and knows the desires of our hearts. Man guys, God is so good!
I hope that you all have a great week! We're already a month into 2013! I can't believe it! Have a great Monday!!
