I haven't added any new posts or pages for a few days and I feel as though I am neglecting you all. I promise you I am not neglecting you - I am tending to an injury on my shoulder that took place some months ago. I have a very difficult time laying low and not doing anything, however I am at a point where I am beginning to realize I need to lay low in order to heal completely, that and the dirty looks I get from my husband because he argues with me to rest my arm when I insist on doing laundry, or dishes or some other chore has made me realize I need to lay low to keep peace in the house...lol
I am honestly so grateful to have a family that is willing to pitch in a little extra in order for me to rest. 
Tonight my dear husband tried out a new recipe that my daughter picked out earlier and it was delicious and easy and cheap! It was beef and rice taco casserole (we modified it some to fit our pantry) because we have a large family I had him double the recipe, but if your family is not as large you can easily divide the recipe in half. 
2 lb. ground beef
2 cans condensed tomato soup
2 cups salsa (we used 1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilis)
1 cup instant rice
1 cup shredded cheddar
1 cup crushed tortilla chips
Brown ground beef and drain fat, add soup, rice and salsa (or tomatoes) pour into a casserole dish and bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, remove from oven and add crushed tortilla chips and shredded cheddar, place back in oven and heat until cheese is melted. 
Garnish with sour cream and green onions if desired. 

Have a fantastic weekend, enjoy your families, and don't forget to make time to pray!
Many Blessings,
