Frito Pie. Week Night Dinner

This week I experimented with a new recipe. My husband isn't to partial to the Mexican flavored food but he likes this and said " it wasn't bad" haha. I loved it. It was super easy, and fast. The best thing is I could put it together before hand pop it in the fridge and heat it up when we where ready to eat dinner. 

This recipe was pretty cheap and went a long way. I browned my meat with some fresh onions. My husband said he would have rather not had the onions. This step is up to you. I think it gives it great flavor. 
Once I browned my meat, you just dump everything in. It was super easy and didn't take long at all. You could add different things here or take what you didn't like out. I would add some jalapeƱo peppers next time or maybe add fresh pico de gayo. 
It doesn't look to tasty here. But I assure you, it turns out awesome. 
Once you get all your ingredients stirred in you can make your first layor. This looks horrible, but like I said it comes a long. 


1 lb of ground beef
1 can of corn 
1 can of rotel
1/2 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup of salsa
1 onion
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 cup of cheese
1 bag of Fritos


1. Dice your onion. Place with ground meat and brown. 

2. Drain your meat. Place back in the skillet. Mix in your taco seasoning. Place your corn(drained), salsa, rotel, and sour cream in. 

3. Once mixed and heated through place half of meat mixture in your baking dish. 

4. Crush your frito chips and place a generous layer on top. Too with cheese. Repeat this step with the remaining mixture, Fritos, and cheese

5. You can now store in the fridge till ready to heat or go straight to the oven. 

6. When ready to bake. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Bake for about 10-15 mins. Or until cheese is melted and hot all the way through. 

We served this with the left over Fritos, and chips and salsa. You could also serve with Mexican rice, very cheap and fast or some heated tortillas. It would make a great taco !!

Hope you enjoy.

How to raise a Godly child, in a atheist driven world

I was scrolling through some articles the other day and came across an article entitled " Why I'm raising my child atheist, in a God driven world" I was took back. No. I did not read it but I was just shocked by the title. 

First I want to know what world they live in that is God driven. I can only wish. But it did get me thinking how I raise Jase. I want to go ahead and say I'm not a perfect mother, I mess up, I do not discipline like I should, I'm to strict sometimes, I have break downs but this is my experience. 

1. Monitor what he sees. 
Yes my son is 1 but what you instil in them now is what sticks. We try as parents not to let Jase see or hear anything that would not please God. We try to only watch clean, family movies. Usually pure flix films. We also make sure he is not around vulgure language or alcohol. You would be so surprised what they take in. 

2. Know where he is. 
This is a little controversial but i do not leave jase with anyone. Our church does not have a nursery but when we visit other churches that have them available. If I let jase go in and play I always stay with him. There is a couple of occasions that I have let someone watch him for 30 mins while I council with some one but that's it and I know the person very welI, usually family. I want to make sure my child is safe. I have heard and know many people that have been victim to there children being abused or sexual assaulted. Which is terrible. I could never imagine the thought. This is a way me and my husband try to raise my child in this crazy atheist Godless world. 

3. Homeschooling 
I am not against public school. I'm against ideals and theories being pressed on my child. I'm against Christ being pulled away from school. I want to make sure that everything that my child takes part in, honors The Lord. I was public schooled my whole life. I have seen drugs being sold, I've had things pressed on me that I didn't want to do, I've seen things that no one should see. As a mother I never want that for my child. I believe public education can be effective sometimes, especially when a child has a special need. But as far as public education vs. homeschooling. Homeschooling wins every time. 

4. Dress 
Modesty is an issue for us. Many times it's focused on girls or womens but even for jase who is a boy modesty is something we instil to make sure we raise our child in a Godly way. I make sure jase always has the proper clothes on when swimming or out. To some it seems pointless but it teaches your child morals, from day one. It also makes a statement to the world that even my children honor The Lord 

5. Stand strong. 
It is so hard sometimes not to waver from things you have already decided I. When you are under pressure. If you want to teach your child or disicii e your child a certain way. Do not let this world tell you it is wrong, abuse, or stupid. God have us the bible and as far as I am concerned that is the only thing I am going to follow to raise my children. No book nor man can change my views. I can speak on this because I have been a victim to many times. I had decided not to vaccinate jase when he was born but after he was born I was talked in to it. If you and your husband make a decision on something stick to it. 

In today's society it is so hard to raise a Godly child. I mean it's hard to be a Godly person. As a parent  I bieleve in monitoring everything possible to make sure this world ( atheists) stay far from my son. People may disagree with me but i believe if God commands it, it should be a priority in your life 

Stay strong

Long lost friend.

Well friends,  I'm back. Our lives have been beyond crazy but it is starting to settle down so I figured I would have the time to start writing again. In the past weeks I have thought of so many things I want to write about. So in the upcoming months I hope I will have A LOT of posts and more importantly help a lot of people. 

In the pasts months me and my husband have been trying to conceive. Be praying for us. Trying to get pregnant is such an emotional roller coaster but we are putting our faith in God that we will be blessed with a sweet baby. 

Also we have been a part of 3 VBS (vacation bible school). Which has been extremely crazy. But totally worth it. Between all three there was around 50 professions of faith. Amazing right. There is no better feeling than help lead a young child to the thrown of God. 

Jase has literally grown by the day. I have realized I do not have a baby anymore. I have a little toddler. Which is awesome. 
Jase and his daddy got new golf clubs which was the highlight of his little life. 
He has learned to sleep in his big boy bed. I told y'all. He is getting so big.  So get ready readers this family is back In action.
