You’re Invited To Our Sunday Dinner! We are serving steak, sausage, corn on the hob, grilled shrimp, and a new recipe that made the family approved hit list! Amazing Apple Pyhllo Tarts! It’s so darn easy and delicious. I used apple but you can use whatever fruit of your choice! The possibilities are endless with phyllo!
Phyllo Dough – For the 12 tarts I made I believe I used 1 sheet per tart
Do you feel guilty about charging for your product? Do people try to haggle prices with you at show events? Do family members expect it free or get a “family discount”? Heck! I’ve had all types of scenarios happen to me. One time a one man under paid by .25 cents to make a point that my product is not worth another quarter! I’ve had girl’s that were so drawn over to my booths with Mom’s viciously dragging them away and giving me that eye look all while I’m smiling back because I knew my product was worth something. And something they didn’t want to pay for until they see their daughter’s face. In the bible it does say about contentment. And GOD’s love is rooted inside of me and if I trust him to give me the gift of making something then I can trust I can charge for my product. Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me. If HE is giving me the courage, platform, gaining confidence, the ideas, the ease of tearing down invisible walls, and going for it, then who can be against me.
Yes, charge for your product without any guilt, my sister friend! You are not charging them only for your material but rather for your time. You are charging for your family. You are charging for your bills, your vacations, your kids needs and yours. Perhaps for a car payment. You are charging for all the love, time, sweat, tears, and time take away from your family to put something back in your financial pocket. Don’t ever feel guilty about charging for your services, products, or items.
Wanting to start something new,? Pick up something old? Try all the things? Can’t get around to doing the new, old, or try all the things? Ever wonder why and what is holding one back? I know from 1st hand experience, it was my FAITH. I’ve always had faith but not to this extent. A relationship with GOD. The power of HIM.
When I wasn’t so faithful to our GOD I was wavering through the waters. I was doggie paddling through the stream. I always had GOD in my life even when I was silent and quiet. I know HE’s always there but I only needed HIM when I was in need. But as the bad experiences have been removed from my life, I have been able to see HIS love and devotion for me. And so I need HIM all the time. During the good and bad times. So with knowing, feeling, and sensing GOD’s presence around, HE removed all the dust, removed the reconstruction of my heart, and instilled new pathways into my life. HE has allowed me to continue to grow and grow more strongly toward HIM. HE has allowed me to build something from scratch with no experience. HE has allowed me to begin to build new advances, ideas, thoughts, and see the things to physically become with trust and being in the know. HE has done marvelous things in my business. I encourage one and all to leave your business to GOD and see the marvelous things HE has in store for you.
Is your sleeping beauty WOKE? How do you wake up? Are you waking up and jumping straight to doing your thing, run the family, wake up all the kids, dress for work and off everyone goes? Did you know that upon waking you have finished the 4th watch? Meaning that’s the time GOD comes to you: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” Gospel of Matthew chapter 14: 23-47. He has many answers and has filled up your paths and feelings of abundance. Joy comes in the morning.
As you are slowly slumbering off the sleepy feeling and in your 2nd rolling of the sheets so as to enjoy every morsel of the last of your sleep, are you saying your thank you’s for the day? Thank You’s for everything? Are you allowing the greatness to come in, sit, chat, and leave a message to set the tone for you?
If you haven’t practice this great vibration of allowing great things to come, it takes time so be patient. Before bedtime, before and throughout the day send praise, prayers, and gratitude of love for all HE’s done. Wake up knowing and feeling that’s everything is going to be okay. There are lot’s of trying times for us or perhaps seen as a test or distractions. Only you can decipher what it is. During those times continue to send praise, prayers, and gratitude of love and take notice upon waking up. For the 4th watch is when HE speaks to you. So pray everyday just like our parent’s taught us too to have a pleasant feeling of waking up to then slaying your day.
Welcome Y’all! You’re invited to our Sunday Dinner! It’s Honey Glazed Salmon. I think I have a theme this month? What do you think? As usual you’re invited over for Sunday Dinner with the Kelrez’s, chat, gather around our dining table, and some coffee afterwards! Let’s begin!
Step 2: Melt honey and butter together in pan or microwave in a bowl. Mix
Step 3: Place salmon on top of foil. Enough foil to cover all the bottom and around to close up. Mix in the garlic into the honey/butter glaze and pour over the entire salmon fillet
Step 4: Place lemon wedges on top and sprinkle in seafood seasoning.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes depending on oven temperature. It must have turned colors of pink to a brownish tan. The edges will have browned first then you can uncover for the remaining cook time. If it’s flaking and you can see the salmon pulling apart, it is done.
I always wanted a hobby since I first was asked what is my hobby. Which I never considered myself a crafty hobby person. I was always more academically a book worm. I love to learn and study. A few years ago, I was challenged by my beautiful baby daughter to make her a monkey headband. Granted I do not know how to sew or have my Mom’s patience for sewing, I accepted my daughter’s challenge and off to creating I went. I later discovered in the creating process I was stumped big time and so wanted to impress her rather than going to the store and buy her one. Why the challenge came out? I don’t know. But at that time I was going thru a hard time and this became my new focus. A focus put upon me or us through GOD. I believe with all my beings of atoms in my body and all the air molecules that this challenge was put into my mind not only by my daughter but GOD. HE made it possible for me to put focus elsewhere. To put good positive focus to create something great with my hands. GOD’s nudge.
The nudge appeared again during my vacation. To begin my journey again of designing. And that’s my tag line on my Facebook business page: Journeying my way through business & crafting. All nudges by GOD. Everything that has been shared, posted, created, designed, idea, thoughts of my headbands are all #nudgesbygod Nudges By GOD! Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
What I am saying is this: If you have a desire, an idea, or something that you need or want to begin. Listen to the nudges because the answer and solution are all set in place. Trust the process to begin seeing the path!
Whatever you are seeking to do in life, job, change lifestyle, or change something for the better of your current status. You are granted permission from the most high. Everything that you are seeking that will improve your life, your families life, your job has been granted from above. Anything that you cannot foresee or are seeking to get to create, develop, change, or go toward too, you are granted permission from the most high.
There isn’t really a wall. It’s ourselves stopping us from progressing to the next steps. Yes, them hard and scary steps, but necessary steps. What we have developed in our mind is an invisible wall that seems to stop us from going forward. You are granted permission from the Most HIGH. Granted permission to succeed. Granted permission to progress. Granted permission to doing it scared. Granted permission to fail, fix, and grow. Now give yourself permission. Give yourself the opportunities. Give yourself permission and extinguish that invisible wall. Give yourself permission for HE has granted you permission since birth and even before.
You’re invited to our Sunday Dinner! You are always invited and welcome to our home to have some good eats, chat, and coffee afterwards! Today it’s all about continuing and ending the pesto theme with some plentiful pesto dinner options.
The grilled shrimp dish I simply poured a few spoon fulls of the Basil Pesto ala Presto while the shrimp was almost done with some egg noodles I had on hand.
The next dish was a grilled chicken breast and simply poured a few spoon fulls of the Perfect Basil Parmesan Pesto toward the end of its cooking stage as well. Any reserve in the pan, I pour over the salad as my dressing.
Lastly, I used my new FAV, Canola Garlic Oil Parmesan Pesto as a dipping sauce or drench over an individual crab cake! These pestos are great for mixing and matching. Even for a simply pesto mozzarella toast! So delicious and easy! They will store for about 4 to 6 weeks in the refrigerator in a well sealed container or jar.
As I was reading my go to devotional this AM I decided to dwell more into it based on lives perspectives. Many times as an individual we come across many types of personalites, situations, and circumstances that most of time have nothing to do with us. Some times people, kids, spouses, colleagues and neighbors will toss in a snarky remark, urgent, or under lying malicious remark/comment. Now in defense of both sides, I sometimes notice that it’s not their entire fault but it’s inherited from their family baggage. In reality, this baggage has nothing to do with us but more of them. So what do I do or suggest? Stop, Drop, and Roll!
No of course not! In all seriousness, I would suggest to Stop, Turnaround, and Run but during that time, I would silently pray for them. Now, if I see that they are in deep misguidance I would suggest to ask if I could pray for them. You would shocked as to how many people would say yes.
There is no point in getting snarky back. No point in remarking or encouraging such behavior and think this is a reflection of you. This has no bearing or weight over you unless you give it power. JESUS is your stronghold. Psalm 27:1 The LORD is my stronghold of my life. Make HIM the stronghold over your thoughts and over the people that are acting up around you. Make HIM the stronghold of how you react and simply walking away from such environment or comments will prove to you how the LORD is taking a stronghold of you. Let JESUS cover you in HIS blanket of everlasting love, guidance, and strength this week and always going forward.
Another beautiful Monday and it’s gorgeous! I’m grateful for all the beautiful and exciting things that are happening and about to happen. And sometimes even on beautiful days, we allow a bad thought to come in and invade our happiness. And to bring such feelings of nothingness. Thoughts like, you have nothing, therefore you will be nothing. You can’t do any thing because of not having nothing, or can’t make ends meets because there’s nothing to look forward to. Or sometimes you can find yourself in a catch 22 situation and fall into the never land of nothing thoughts of despair. That’s when you use your super power of JESUS!
The super power of Jesus is an awesome place to be, let your hair down, to cry, to pray, to thank, to be happy and rejoice. And being allowed to be fragile in HIS presence and feel HIS love for us. To sense that HE is always there to uplift us at any time of any moments in our lives.
Decide to reach for your super power as well too! Decide to be happy! Decide to block out bad thoughts. Decide to grow in strength in HIS Amazing Super Power! And 1, 2, 3 you are on your way to receiving amazing blessings your way.
