Happy Homemaker Monday

On my bedside table:
--rereading A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George

On my TV:
--Fox News
--Word World for the kiddos

On the menu for tonight:
--baked potatoes with ground beef, cheese and sour cream and salad

On my To Do List:
--clean kitchen
--lots of laundry!
--make a batch of meatballs for the freezer

New Recipe I tried last week:
--broccoli and cheese casserole. Can you believe that I had never made a broccoli and cheese casserole?! Or at least I don't remember ever making one. I was asked to bring one to a church meeting. I found a recipe and it was really good. Except for the broccoli, it wasn't at all healthy...but it was delicious!

In the craft basket:
I have many things but haven't made the time for them. I know this week won't leave much time for crafting and sewing, either!

Looking forward to:
--the Women's Retreat this weekend

Homemaking Tip for this week:
Always tip your homemaker for a job well done! (Sorry. That's the best I can come up with today!)

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
I'm really enjoying "Our Story" at The Happy Housewife.
Favorite photo from last week:
I don't have a photo to share today.

Lesson learned the past few days:
--When doubling a casserole recipe, often the cooking time needs to be increased!

On my Prayer List:
--my husband
--women's retreat
--that God will bring someone into my life that I can lead to Him

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
I've been meditating on the Parable of the Sower this past week in Matthew 13. Verse 23 really stands out and causes me to ponder whether I am being good soil-a faithful disciple.
Matthew 13:23: "But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown."

Thanks to Sandra for hosting Happy Homemaker Monday!
