#28 - Weekly Thankfulness & Growth Report

If you were following this blog in 2015 then you will be familiar with my "365 Days of Being Thankful" challenge.  I have missed reporting on my thankfulness since I finished my challenge back in November so I decided to at least give a weekly Thankfulness Report & include a Growth Report also.  Growth in our Christian walk, growth in the garden & growth on this blog.  Finally, I am also including a "Posts From the Past" feature - ENJOY!

This week I have been thankful for answers to prayer, for modern conveniences, for challenges and that God is the ultimate comforter during difficult times.

"...God is light;  in Him there is no darkness at all.  If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth.  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin." 
1 John 1:5-7

Have you ever experienced absolute darkness? - I have twice in my life: 1.  In Mammoth Caves when they turned the lights out  2.  At night in the wilderness in Algonquin Park during a lunar eclipse.  There is never any darkness with God.
Read: God is Light

I made the first batch of homemade salsa this year using a variety of tomatoes including the orange Valencia Tomato and the Pink Oxheart tomato.

CHERRY CHIPOTLE BARBECUE SAUCE
Cooking with Curls

If you have been following me for awhile, you already know that I have a slight obsession with barbecue sauce. I put it on just about everything, burgers, steaks, chicken strips, even pizza! No, not regular pizza, Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza silly. This year for Thanksgiving I wanted to change things up {because I don’t actually like turkey} so I created a Southwest Roasted Turkey….



Mini Breakfast Casserole
This Mama Loves

Breakfast casserole is a favorite morning staple in our house. They are easy to toss together and you can use pretty much whatever you have on hand to make it. They can be as simple or as involved as you like making them perfect for busy mornings, leisurely weekend brunches, or family holiday breakfasts.



Make This Stunning Terracotta Pot Succulent Centerpiece
Garden Therapy

It’s hard to believe that this gorgeous succulent centerpiece was made from humblest of materials. An inexpensive wire hanging basket frame, terracotta pots, reindeer moss, and a Hurricane candle make for a show stopping planter / table decoration that will get people talking!



Tomato Pesto Spaghetti Squash Bake
The Bewitchin' Kitchen
I’ve been pretending, pretending for a long time to like spaghetti squash. I knew there was potential for me to love it but I couldn’t figure out a recipe until this Tomato Pesto Spaghetti Squash Bake.



Simple Summer Tomato Sandwiches
A Proverbs 31 Wife
I forget when I came upon this combo, but I know it’s now something I look forward to each summer. These simple summer tomato sandwiches must be made with fresh tomatoes. They just must. I’ve tried making them with store-bought tomatoes in the winter and the results were simply disappointing.



5 Ways to Whiten your Teeth at Home
Must Have Mom

I read once that American’s spend about $1.4 billion dollars a year on teeth whitening products. That is a lot of money! So I’ve come up with 5 ways to whiten your teeth at home.



Double Cherry Cobbler
Crafts a la Mode

This is WAY easier than making pies. I love cobblers of all sorts, especially with ice cream. Yummy.
The inspiration for this recipe came from one of my favorite magazines, the Sandra Lee Christmas issue. I did tweak her recipe for my family. I love that she uses ready made items and then adds to them to create a whole new dessert, like the one below. This is truly one of the easiest desserts to make.



CLASSIC BREAD PUDDING
Treatntrick

This Classic Bread Pudding is an easy dessert using a stale bread soaked in a milky egg mixture.

I used to make it using my white sandwich  bread, crust removed then cubed, but today I made this Classic Bread Pudding with multi grain bread, cut the slice into half length wise.



TOP ESSENTIAL OILS FOR SKINCARE
Floyd Family Homestead

My name is Tana and I am addicted to my essential oils….I cannot get enough!! They have helped me in so many different ways, as they have others across the world.

Got a toothache? There is an essential oil for that; Have problems sleeping? There is an essential oil for that; Have skins problems? Well there are essential oils for that
