A perfect Saturday snack


On my trip to Baltimore last week, I tuned in to the free tv shows that Southwest offers on their Wi-Fi enabled flights.  I tuned in to the Food Network and discovered a new show I had never seen before - Big Daddy's House.  I simply fell in love!

Chef Aaron McCargo Jr.'s dream came true when he won Season 4 of Food Network Star. His show, Big Daddy's House, was a part of the grand prize.  The thing I adore about Aaron and this show is that is models a positive Black male who is passionate about his family and providing fun meals for his kids.  Plus he's a big guy with a big personality - not something you normally find when flipping pass the Food Network.

The show I watch in flight featured Elvis style peanut butter, banana, and honey pancakes, these awesome cheese stuffed, bacon wrapped hot dogs, and a homemade macaroni and cheese that I still have to try!

This past lazy Saturday while hanging out with Munchkin, I decided to try Aaron's take on the hot dog with my own twist.  I split four turkey hot dogs, added cheddar cheese, and wrapped in turkey bacon.  I set the oven to 300 and baked for about 30-40 minutes.

Once they were done, I took them in the backyard with Munchkin - and they are definitely Munchkin approved.  Nothing fancy - just yummy.  

Even as I sit here writing this post, Munchkin saw the picture and said "mom, I liked those".  Perfect for a Saturday afternoon when you'd rather be outside playing than in the kitchen cooking!

Let me know what's your favorite way to serve up a hot dog.  Have you seen Big Daddy's House on the Food network?

CVS Game

I'm back in the game ya'll!  Back in the day when Dave and I were newlyweds and had just bought our first house, I started playing the CVS coupon game.  I was able to stock up so much that I remember coming back a year later after moving back to New Mexico and Dave still had not had to buy toilet paper!
I haven't played in a very long time because coupling takes time. Recently, I came across this great Youtube channel and it seriously inspired me to jump back in. Right now I'm only dealing with CVS, I haven't bothered to begin planning for other shopping trips.
Jumping back in hasn't been with out flaws. Last week I watched Toni's video spent Friday night printing and clipping coupons, made my list, thought I had a plan, and then woke up Saturday morning ready to go. Something didn't work just right because I ended up spending about $120 out of pocket. I did save like $50 and the good news is I earned $15 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB). So this week I was r…

A Help Meet

I write this post after much prayer and consideration about whether now is the time for me to say this.  I came across the above picture on instagram one day, and it caused my spirit to leap.  I have shared with you here my journey of going through a divorce, the challenges I have faced, my time of singlehood while healing.

I have entered a new season.  A season of studying on what it means to be a good wife.  Not just a wife by name because one wears a ring and is married to her husband, but a wife that God created us to be.  The help meet He introduced to Adam in Genesis 2.  The companion that is not just along for the ride, but the one who truly makes her husband's life better.

When I saw this picture, it personified everything I've been studying about and praying for.  To be the kind of woman who, when I'm blessed with the opportunity to be a wife again, does not just go along for the ride....but is active in keeping our marriage firmly rooted in the Word so that it c…

Colin Kaepernick is bae

I really don't need to say anymore.  
I've been saying people with a platform need to take a stand. I didn't want any Black athletes to travel to Rio for the olympics to represent the USA. I realize that is a big thing to ask. That is the dichotomy of being Black in America.  Black athletes representing a country and winning gold medals in the name of a country who doesn't fully see us. 
So Kaepernick gets all my love for taking a stand by taking his seat.  Personal protests have always been the catalyst for greater awareness and action. 
Let me tell you a quick story. This summer at our Scentsy convention, Orville gave a moving and authentic speech that touched on the current times. I could see how he genuinely felt about what he was saying. There was a moment where this quote by a Scentsy consultant's husband was placed on the screen. I realized when he said "he's Black", everyone remained seated, but when he said "and he's a cop" eve…
