We are so consumed with the things of the created world that we forget that there even is a creator! This is the essence of idolatry. We gladly follow anything other than a God who makes demands on us and tell us what to do with our money, our bodies, our time… our lives. ~ from Zealous
I hope you are all doing well. Yesterday I had a spinal injection and besides feeling like someone hit me in the back, it's great. HA lol I hope the next few go better.
There is NO rest for the weary. As you know, I am participating in the Pantry Challenge. So, today, I made a loaf of bread. As usual, we let it cool, cut one small slice and all tasted a bit. <3
Today we finally had to go buy dairy. And by we, I mean Marque... on the way home from work. I love that man. So, here is my list:
- Regular Grocery:
- Corn tortillas (I’m making chicken tortilla soup) - small pack.
- tomato paste (2 small cans)
- Can of Canola Spray (pan)
- Small chili powder (the small round ones)
- 10 yogurts
- 1 pack cheese sticks
- 1 pack cheese slices
- 1 milk
- 1 creamer
- butter tub
- 2 cartons of eggs
It was less than $50. And if you go back to my post from Sunday, you will see that I have changed our menu. Yesterday because of my procedure, Marque made chicken strips. They were yummy! Today, I made Chicken Tortilla Soup, a la Pioneer Woman. SO GOOD!

This is the first time I've ever made it. It's so good. That is why I am linking up with Try a New Recipe Tuesday @ Home to 4 Kiddos.
Oh, and I have a funny story. As you can see, on my list, I said I needed Corn Tortillas. Somehow to my love, it translated to "tortilla chips". HA! In the end, they were fine. But it was funny.
Next week, I will be ordering some Masa Harina and will soon be making my own corn tortillas. <3
Thanks for stopping by!
