My Biggest Fan

I have a couple really delicious recipes to share with you again but this time they were not my doing - they were my sweet hubby's! You see, this past week I have been 'lucky' enough to have caught my daughters cold. Instead of getting progressively better, it has gotten worse so that by the end of each day, I am wiped! So home comes Matt, ready, willing and able to cook our supper!


Here he is cooking up a storm! And the final product?....


They were so good! We've made them once before and they are a million times better then the box taco kits you buy! The shells are so much tastier too and don't fall apart in your hands. Also, we use Alymers Accents Spicy Red Pepper Diced Tomatoes instead of the ones the recipe for the taco meat calls for. I couldn't find that brand around here and Alymers worked perfectly well! As well, I recommend that you pierce the flatbread that you use for making the tacos with a fork! The first time we made them they puffed up like little taco balloons!

The next night he made a wonderful spaghetti dinner, too!


Finally, here's a tasty treat he made me last week when I wasn't feeling too great after a visit to the dentist:
Apple crumble! This is my most favorite comfort food! Its my Mom's recipe and it is so warm and satisfying - it definitely made me feel better!

Mom's Apple Crumble
Slice apples into a 9" square dish. Pour 1/2 cup water over apples and sprinkle with 3Tbsp. sugar.
Mix together 1c. flour, 1/4c. brown sugar, dash of nutmeg, 1tsp. cinnamon and 1/3c. margarine.
Pour over apples and bake at 350 for 1/2 an hour.

Anyhow, the past week really got me thinking about how important it is to have strong support when you're a stay-at-home mom. Matt is my biggest fan, always encouraging me in all the adventures and challenges I take on and fully supporting me in my roles as housewife and mama. I am just so thankful for a husband that enables me to do all that I want to do, has nothing but praise and adoration for me and my efforts and realizes that even mamas need sick days too!

Great write-up Gina! I enjoyed it from start to finish. Your apple crumble recipe is the same as the one Mom has made ever since I can remember ...and I make it too. It is tasty! :)

Worth more than rubies.


“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”
