"Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do,
and He will show you which path to take."
~~Proverbs 3:5-6~~
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. Jesus is Lord of my life and I strive daily to draw closer to Him. I love being a homemaker---taking care of my family and home. I enjoy couponing, cleaning, and cooking. I love to get the best deal on everything and find that yard sales and thrift stores are the perfect places for that. I have recently felt lead to write a Bible study and have been working on it in my spare time. I truly enjoy leading women's groups as we all seek to grow closer to the Lord. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy reading about what happens as I strive do all of this.

Leftover Soup---(8 servings for less than $2)

I love it when I can make a meal out of leftovers or things I get for nearly free with coupons/sales.  Today, I made a soup that was enough for two meals for our family and it only cost us less than $2 total.
I cooked an onion, a can of chopped tomatoes, and various spices until the onions were soft.  My son does not like chunks of tomatoes or onions so I used the immersion blender after cooking them.  I then added left over shredded chicken, leftover black-eyed peas, and leftover white rice.  I deep fried corn tortilla strips and sprinkled them with salt.  To serve the soup I placed it in a bowl with a sprinkle of cheese and spoon of sour cream.  I put some of the tortilla strips on the side.  It was a hit and we have enough for our lunch Sunday!
