Menu Plan and Simple Prayer

A Simple Prayer

Remind me to treasure what my children say, encourage what they do, and love them for who they are.   Just as you do so to me.

Monday - Southwest Sloppy Joes, green beans
Tuesday - Breakfast for Dinner
Wednesday - Chicken Enchiladas*
Thursday - Crock Pot Tilapia
Friday - order pizza, salad, fruit
Saturday - BBQ drumsticks, baked potatoes
Sunday - Chili (still haven't made this!)
*Homemade Enchilada Sauce
1/4 c. tomato paste
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 c. flour
2 Tbsp chili powder
3 1/2 c. chicken broth
Mix together first six ingredients in small bowl and set aside.  Make a roux with olive oil, flour, and chili powder.  Add in tomato paste mixture.  Slowly whisk in warmed broth.  Simmer for 10 minutes.
What's on your menu or on your hearts this week?


  1. Thanks for sharing that prayer - it's something I know I need to be reminded of and needed to hear today.
