  3. Homemade Enchilada Sauce

    We are a "Taco Tuesday" kind of family, but as much as I like me some tacos, sometimes I'd just like to mix it up a little bit and do a different kind of Mexican dish.... hence our "Mexican Monday" dish of chicken and black bean enchiladas (with corn on the cob to boot!). I'm sharing this because I came across the best homemade red enchilada sauce on Pinterest the other day that has saved me quite a bit of money (those big cans of enchilada sauce can get pricey!!). There are seven of us in the family, so I need quite a bit of sauce, plus one of the pans needs to be dairy free (but also gets to be spicier!!), so I ended up doubling the recipe (actually just made two individual batches). The following recipe is for a single batch (probably about 2 cups of sauce). If you like enchiladas like we do, I hope that you find this recipe fits well into your cooking repertoire. Enjoy In a large saucepan, heat 1/4 oil (I use a canola blend) then add 2 T flour, 2T chili powder, 1/2 tsp salf, 1/2-1 tsp onion powder, and 1/2-1 tsp garlic powder (I mix this all together in a prep bowl first) and whisk into the oil stirring constantly for about three minutes. Then add 1 1/2 C chicken broth and an 8 oz can tomato sauce. Whisk until smooth and allow to cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Use immediately or store in the fridge until ready to use (makes an excellent topping for scrambled egg burritos!). Enjoy! Blessings!
  4. You ladies are beautiful! Thank you so much for your advice... I am certain that I will be integrating each of your ideas as we go along. Many Blessings!
  5. My grandmother has been quilting since I can remember. I am blessed to have MANY of her quilts throughout our home... each of the kids' beds, our bed, the quest bed, in bags in the closet (she's started hand quilting a lot of her most recent projects and I'm afraid to use them!). Spoiled? Absolutely! My love of sewing comes from her... ok, so my desire to love sewing comes from her. She gives me the hardest time about not sewing more, and constantly tells me how her children never would have had anything to wear if she didn't sew. I don't think she desires to understand that things are different now... but I digress. My point is, I'm a homeschooling momma and my oldest daughter would love to sew. I thought that we would start with a 12 Month quilt, something where she could make a quilt block for each month, then we could put them all together at the end of the year. However, I am overwhelmed as to where/how to start. I'd appreciate any encouragement!
  6. One Of The Reasons I Quilt

    I am constantly amazed at how God uses us as His hands and feet, even though we may think that what we are doing might be quite insignificant in the grand scheme of things. I was just telling my children today to remember what Mother Theresa use to say, "If you can't feed 100 people, just feed one." I know my kids get sick of hearing it, but this goes right along with my daily mantra, "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are." God bless you for making a difference in that woman's life.
