Here we go! Our second tried and true kid-approved supper recipe-
Pizza Tot Casserole
I have to give the credit to my thoughtful sister-in-law for this supper favorite. I had a chance to try it out via her delivering it to my door, shortly after the twins were born. Bless her soul! She knows exactly how to help a starving new mama, ahem, family out after a c-section resulting in the birth of our beautiful girls. This is one easy and delicious casserole that is great paired with a fresh green salad. And although I have a recipe card for this casserole, I searched the Web to find the exact recipe for easier viewing. I was able to find it over at Taste of Home.
Valentines day doesn’t have to be sappy; on the contrary it signifies what we all strive to be surrounded with- love! Forget the hallmark-cheesy holiday and let it mean something more than getting a box of chocolates or roses.
If there is anything I can say about this holiday it would be to enjoy it for what it is, surrounding yourself with love- God’s love.
Focus on the moments with your spouse, building up and cherishing moments with your kids and lastly showing love to strangers. Need a few ideas? Below are a few things I have come up with to help your valentines day extend into a week filled with showing God’s love and grace.
Coming up short on dinner ideas? Over the next 7 weeks keep watch for my latest family-approved supper recipes.
Our most recent favorite has been Enchilada Soup by: GimmeSomeOven
This recipe seriously requires under 10 minutes prep time, and is loved by all 5 of my children. Now that’s saying something. In the past decade I have failed and triumphed equally when that clock chimes the dinner hour. Some days my family has been forced to eat grilled cheese and canned tomato soup 3 days in a row, other times we eat wholesome home cooked meals all week. The difference for success or fail? The dreaded word- pre-planning. Ok so that may be two words compounded together with a hyphen, minor details. The fact is, I am awful at forgetting that pesky little list at home whilst walking aimlessly around the grocery store- covering at least every aisle 3 times! Someone please tell me I am not alone in this?!
It brings me pure joy to have the blessing of educating my children at home.
Yes! Even on those days when the doubts come rolling in and I am overwhelmed beyond my comprehension, and just maybe want to put my kids on the curb with a for-sale sign give up. I can rest in the peace I have. On those days I still have the reassurance from God that this is in line with His will, knowing God is calling me (and you!) to raise our children for Him. Having this knowledge, I can claim peace, joy and hope knowing I am making the choice that gives them their best chance. I realize homeschooling isn’t for everyone, and maybe not for you. God has a unique calling for each of us and if we are still enough in His presence, we will hear the Holy Spirit’s direction.
