Beef Sliders Recipe

Beef Sliders Recipe

The first time I made sliders was over a year ago. In fact, it was for the baby’s first birthday party (funny thing that we call her a baby and she’s almost two years old). Guests gave me good feedback, when I made these then. And my family loves them so much that I’ve continued to make them.

It’s an easy meal, only involving a handful of ingredients and it’s done – from start to finish – in abut 30 minutes. I’m a true fan of quick meals. I have also made this recipe with ground turkey. And if tweaked a bit, you could possibly make it with pulled pork and other meats. Though, I have not personally ventured from ground meats yet.

Intentional Prayer

This morning, I shared a simple but powerful image on Instagram, with the word Pray on it. It was something I felt in my heart but also seemed appropriate for a day like today, Sunday.

Coincidently, today’s message included these same words. Our priest advised that we set aside 15 minutes each day to dedicate to prayer. He went on to describe what the typical day for most working parents looks like and how busy our lives are. And realized that 15 minutes of prayer is not something that most of us will actually take the time to do.

Panama: Part III – Bocas del Toro

Panama: Part III – Bocas del Toro

If you have been following along my Panama adventure, thanks for coming back to read the last post in the series! If you’re just joining me, thanks for visiting, you can catch up here.

On the previous post, I shared details about a five-point tour that we did upon arriving in Bocas del Toro. That tour was great for two reasons. One, it was an all day event and two, we got to see a lot more than we would have on our own.

Chicken Stuffed French Bread

Last week I made a chicken stuffed  French bread, a new family favorite. I stumbled across this recipe a few months ago, and have made it a few times since. The recipe calls for some simple ingredients; chicken, bacon, cheese, mayo, sour cream… Most of these ingredients you probably already own, no need for a grocery trip.

First, I cooked a chicken breast. Yes one breast was enough because I used one small loaf. I’m also only feeding two adults and two kids who are very lightweight eaters. This step took me about 25 minutes but you can cut the prep and cook time if you buy chicken that is already shredded (I have purchased this at Kroger before). Or use left over shredded chicken.

Panama: Part II – Bocas del Toro

Before our trip to Panama one thing was certain – aside from visiting friends and family – we wanted to take on an adventure. The kind of adventure that goes on your bucket list and you feel accomplished to scratch off once you’ve done it. Bocas del Toro was just that for us, one heck of an adventure. Am I longing to go back? Absolutely! Am I trying to persuade people to visit? Maybe…

And if I was asked to sum up Bocas del toro in as few words as possible. I’d say it is Panama’s hidden gem.

Chicken Tortilla Soup

In our home, we eat a fresh cooked meal almost everyday. There are days that we go out to eat. And then there are days when I’m feeling lazy! As a result, I scramble through Pinterest for inspiration and ideas.

Yesterday, was one of those days. Since it was a holiday, instead of Monday it felt like a weekend day. Even with both girls at home, the day was moving slow and there I was feeling lazy.

Not knowing what to make for dinner. I thought a soup would be a good and easy meal. So I got to work and whipped up a quick chicken tortilla soup.
