Homemaking Tip for this week:
My family loves Tortilla chips, but they can be quite pricey at times and also, there are those occasions when we want some but don't have any in the house. Make your own!
They are so easy to make and much better than store bought. All you need are Corn Tortillas, slice them into triangles and fry them up in a little oil. Serve with homemade salsa and you got yourself a delicious snack.
I like to fry a whole stack of tortillas, it makes a ton of chips, then store them in ziploc bags.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Life is a Highway by Teresa, loved all the photos she took as she embarked on a 6 day road trip with her son.
Favorite photo from last week:
My husbands uniform, boots, tags and my Father in Law's Flag.
Lesson learned the past few days:
There's time for everything in your life, you just have to organize things around you. When I want time for crafting or reading, I actually put it into my schedule because if I don't I find myself struggling to get everything done or end up sacrificing one thing for the other.
I've learned to slow down this past week and to realize that things will get done without me having to kill myself in order to do so.
On my Prayer List:
Family and Friends
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Blessed are they who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart.
