Making Our Home a Haven Challenge

Making home a haven....what does that mean exactly? We as wives and mothers should make sure our home is inviting, comfortable and a safe haven to those who enter our doors..especially the ones who live in it everyday. We should make sure our home is a place where our children want to be and our husband can't wait to come home to. Join me as I start the challenge next week...Oct 4th along with Courtney. Here is her blog and challenge                                                                                       Enjoy God's Blessings Today,

Saving Time in the Kitchen

If you are anything like me, you are a busy mom, who doesn't always have the time to slave over the stove. Here are a few tips I use that might help you cut some time in the kitchen in half.

1. I buy my ground meat in bulk. So when I get home from the grocery store and everything is put away. I fry my whole entire 5 lbs of meat at once. Then put them in 1-2lb freezer containers, so when ever I need to make spaghetti,tacos or chili, just defrost the cooked meat and throw it in your dish.
2. Cut your vegetables when you get home from the store. If you buy onions or peppers and you are going to use them in a casserole or dish that week. Go ahead and chop them up and put them in a freezer bag and toss in your freezer , just defrost the morning of your dish.
3. Clean while you cook. As my dishes get dirty while I cook, I go ahead and throw them in the dishwasher. If your dish is in the oven , go ahead and clean your stove top.

These are a few of the things I do...if you have any other ideas please comment ...I would love to hear from you!                                                                    Enjoy God's Blessings today,

I have to say that Fall is my favorite season!! The crisp air, the beautiful colors of changing leaves. Pumpkin and apple picking. Cool enough to wear a hoodie but still kinda warm to wear flip-flops...okay I wear my flip-flops until Halloween and even then it's hard to pry them off my feet until Thanksgiving. God's creation is so beautiful in any season, so bask in His Goodness!!
