Tomato Sauce


It was 95 degrees today and I decide to make homemade tomato sauce.

What was I thinking??


I was thinking this is way healthier and tastier.

I mean look at all those organic veggies bubbling up in there!!

016Here is my go to in a jar brand next to my homemade sauce.

They both look good to me,

but I still think I am going for homemade sauce for tonight!

Do you ever make sauce from scratch?

Hopefully not on a super hot day like I did!!

Do you have a great recipe I could try?

I would love to try it out!!

Let me know friend  and have a blessed weekend with those you love the most!!

Being Served

So sweet!

My daughter’s friend Ashley and her mother were so thoughtful last night.

Ashley knew that Aimee was under the weather. She and her momma popped over with this amazing pot of soup for her (and us!).

012Oh my goodness!!

The smell was just divine!!

They were so precious. They came in and served us soup.

What amazing servants of God!!

Look at this delicious bowl of soup!!

020It was spinach potato soup.

They had made tortilla strips for the top.

Oh my taste buds are still happy from my steaming bowl of lovingly made broth!

They stayed for a while and we had some wonderful conversation too.

I have always been the one who shares the soup.

Being on the receiving end this time, and for my daughter to be the true recipient, was even more special.

The Bible says, in Ephesians 2:10 b. ” God has created us for a life of good deeds, which he has already prepared for us to do” Then in Ephesians 6:7 it says ” Whenever you serve others in any way, you are actually serving God “

I know Aimee and I both felt such joy through their kindness.

Amazing how one pot of soup can share so much more than soup.

018Lord my heart is so full today!!

Joy, love and happiness warms my soul.

Thank You for friends who care.

Thank You for moments that allow me to see Your greatness!

Thank You for allowing me to be there as my daughter got to experience a moment of true friendship.

You are so good Lord!

That was such a precious gift!

Thank You!!

It is so wonderful to serve, and be served by others!!

New Apron for a New Year

Here it is.

The latest apron I made for myself.

032It is cute.

I really like it because I made it from fabric I had just laying around the house.

033I like the ruffles at the waist.

Makes me feel at least a little girly as I am making a mess of myself while I am cooking or cleaning!

Hoping it will keep me motivated for a few months of maintaining the cleanliness of the house!!

Ha ha ha!!!

Have a blessed New Year friend!!
