So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45

Monday's Meal

I made some White Chocolate Pecan cookies over the weekend and...


They were so good. I couldn't stop eating them. But don't worry, it is my full intention to have a non-dessert recipe today. I may need it to keep the sugar from over-running my body.

Happy Cinco de Mayo by the way! This is what is known as Mexican Pizza in my house. Making a few or, um, four will make a filling lunch for us. They are pretty easy too. And don't forget to make a cheese quesadilla or too if you're making a big Mexican meal today.

Mexican Pizza

1 lb hamburger or ground turkey
taco seasoning and water to prepare
1 can refried beans
large flour tortillas
shredded cheese (preferably "Mexican blend")

Cook and drain meat. Season with taco seasoning according to directions. Warm refried beans in a small saucepan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a baking sheet, lay two tortillas side by side. Mix together refried beans and taco meat. Do a cup of each at a time if you wish to use the meat and beans for other dishes as well. Spread this on top of each tortilla leaving about 1/2 to 1 inch border around the edge. Top with another tortilla and press lightly. Sprinkle with cheese to cover top tortilla. Bake in oven until cheese is melted, about 10 min. or so. Slice with pizza cutter.

Cheese Quesadillas

Work quickly! In a greased/sprayed hot skillet, lay a flour tortilla and sprinkle with shredded cheese (either cheddar or mexican blend). Your choice: either fold over the tortilla or top with another tortilla. Flip the quesadilla to warm and lightly brown the other side as well. Repeat until cheese is melted. Cut with pizza cutter. Serve warm with salsa.
