Today is such a blessing..My kiddos are here and I am cooking one of their favorites..Indian Taco's..Such a simple dish really..I made them cupcakes the other day and needless to say they have eating them all...
Indian Taco's were inspired by an Old family member..Dessie Willingham..She made these for me when I was little..I could not eat a whole one then, but sure try now...I will post the recipe so you all can enjoy a bit of my life..

Recipe...

I small bag of pinto beans soaked overnight, rinse drain and cook in a large stock pot.. I add salt pepper(White Pepper) Garlic and a ham hock....Cook till done....
Then shred a head of lettuce, cut up 2 tomatoes and get them diced pretty good, now 6-8 cups of shredded cheese, sour cream, hot sauce and Fry up 2-5 pounds of Hamburger meat with salt, pepper, and garlic salt as well..Drain off fat.(I use 90/10 hmb.) so there is not much fat..Chop up 1-2 onions..You can make this a Vegetarian meal to..Just omit the Hamburger meat...
Now take some self rising flour(about 6-10 cups) and add water till flour follows fork(kinda Sticky)..Put flour on cutting surface and take a golf-ball sized amount and pus out on cabinet til kinda flat turning to coat with flour..In pan with 2 cups of Oil heated put dough in there and fry till golden brown on both sides...repeat till all are cooked...Next layers...Indian taco shell-beans-hamburger meat-lettuce-tomato's-shredded cheese-sour cream-hot sauce...It's time to Eat..Yum'O...I hope you will enjoy a taste of my home...

Life and Pushing forward...

Well I am sorry it had been forever since I have been on here..I will be Blogging more often..I am going to be testing Cupcake recipes...Telling my stories as I go..So I am using the UPS friends as my taste tester's and some people from Church..I attend victory Life in Durant Oklahoma...I sing in our choir and I am a People person..My feeling get hurt Very easy.Just Sayin..
Tonight's Cupcake was Mocha Dark Chocolate with a Butter cream Mocha Chocolate frosting...It was Divine...They really came out moist and the Frosting was totally the bomb...The kids and the Husband really enjoyed them..I will have to post photo's and share recipes when I have decided if I am going to open up a Cupcake Treat's and Sweets shoppe in Durant Oklahoma....I have to be in prayer for a while and ask our Pastor Brother Duane to pray for me and pray for this decision to see if this a God idea...
I have found that if you pray about everything God will definitely show his hand in all things...It is so important to be in good timing..
I have the best of intentions of writing a book based on Domestic Violence to, but there again it's all based on God's timing...There are so many areas In this life I want to touch on and hopefully Bless someone who is in need..I will give back to the Community and Help protect people from Violence...
I am really thinking I stand a Great chance at what I want for My life...

Some of the Other interest...Music, singing, and being around friends and family...I like to joke around and have a blast in this life...Life is way to short to be Unhappy..We wake up and have to decide if we want to be "Happy" or Miserable...It's Our choice..As a Dear Friend once said..be Spacific and take 15 min a day and just tell yourself what you want..Take the song...F***ing Perfect by Pink...that's how we should all feel and live by that..It made me cry the first time I heard it...This friend was on the other end of the computer and could not see the tears, but they were real and many of them...I looked into the mirror and had realized I wanted to be better, but according to this friend...I was already "Perfect"...
Life is only what we make of it..Make it count Everyday..you never know when it may be the last day...That's what I have for today...We were made to be courageous...God Bless and much Love....XOXO

Cook a romantic dinner for two: Steak Baked Potatoes, and a nice Cesar salad with a death by chocolate cake with some dipped strawberries on the side...
Next have some rose petals off the roses and make a trail to the bedroom for a nice seduction of you mate...Play some soft romantic music and No T.V for the night...Have some Champagne cooling and an Inexpensive gift for each other....
Idea #2.. Cook chicken Marcela, steamed veggies, and a tossed grape.strawberry salad with a nice raspberry vinaigrette. have a strawberry cake with some chocolate on the side for garnish, then some nice wine,soft music, and a card for your mate....
Valentines after all is what you make of it...It can be Expensive or cheep, just what you think you can afford....I my-self will make us some Steaks, baked potatoes, Cesar salad with a nice Chocolate-strawberry dessert and have a nice bottle of Champagne and Large strawberries for soaking in the champagne, I plan on wrapping up a bar of chocolate for my hubby and a nice card....The most important thing is to remember how much you love and are LOVED......

Prayer!

Well today I got a call that my son and his wife were going to have their kids taken away by CPS.... So Terry and I now have the Grand-babies...Teagan is in the Hospital but hopefully he will be able to come home tomorrow... I am not so sure what all is Going to happen, but I know this is for the best....Teagan has a bad infection and his mom says he fell from his crib, but the bruising is not consistent with her story...
Please pray for Me and Terry i know we will be able to do this, but God is going to have to help...These boys have not been taken care of very good!! It is going to be quite the challenge, but I believe God put them in the Best place Possible....
I had to go out to Wal-Mart to get stuff for them and prepare to have them for at least 30 days....It could end up 90 day's or more...
I did not expect this to happen, but kinda knew it would...I don't know how many of you out there know us, but life is always been a challenge...
They are not caught up on their shots and a well baby check up!! Yea, go figure a well baby ???!!!!! I question the amount of time it takes to actually remove kids for unsafe environment's.... Well, I must go for now the Denny Bug is calling...I pray I can get them on a good schedule....

Just trying to figure this out!!

Well this the second Blog from little Ol Me.... I hope it finds everyone good and Blessed.... We took our boys to get their glasses yesterday and it took forever...
I sing in our Choir at Victory Life in Durant Ok. and have for about 6 years now... We have a really great Pastor Duane Sheriff...
I Love to cook and sing, take photo's, just hang with friends....I love The Texas Longhorns even if we had a bad season...The main things I do is taking care of our kids, cook and not much else..Well I guess you could say I now Blog!! LOL...
I am going to add some more recipes latter today, and I hope you will enjoy!! They are fool-proof!! and No I am not calling you a fool!! LOL...
Latter as I get a bit better and have a few more Following me, I will start telling you more about me, and why I wanted to Start a Blog...I hope to reach people of Domestic Violence and have not been understood.... It's my heart to share the TRUTH about it...
Well for now I am going to go, as for I have a lot to do...
