Oh My Isn't It....

I saw this picture and my heart skipped a beat ...
just look at all the yumminess. This is on PW's blog and I knew I would have to make it. Now I don't have a Marlboro Man, Cowboy Man, Steak Lovin Man but I do have a Tummy O. Man (do I) and it is defiantly asking for this steak to be cooked, drooled over and then eatin by Me!
Here is the receipe if you dare


2 whole Ribeye Steaks

2 Tablespoons Butter



4 Tablespoons Butter

1 whole Very Large Yellow Onion, Sliced

1 cup Heavy Cream

½ cups Crumbled Blue Cheese

Preparation Instructions

Salt and pepper both sides of the steaks. Grill in 2 tablespoons butter until medium rare.

Saute onions in 4 tablespoons butter over high heat. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, or until dark and caramelized. Reduce heat to simmer and pour in cream. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until reduced by half. Stir in blue cheese until melted. Serve steaks on generous portion of sauce.

At the end of PW's post she write "Faint" I believe I will or maybe just swoon

 *caution *This post contains pictures of "red meat" I guess you could omit the meat and just put the sauce over grilled veggies

I'll Pray

I have to admit I was one of those people that say, “I'll pray for you” and I thought about it at the moment but honestly, I usually didn’t think of it again. It was just something I said to make me/them feel better. Funny how you don’t know the impact of your words or the true meaning and you take a simple statement like “I’ll pray for you” for granted. I think I arrange words in my head to have a different meaning so that I feel good when I say them. On the other hand, maybe it has just become such a popular thing to say to one another and I don’t want to be secluded from my peers. Of course, everything changed for me when I became one of those people that really needed people to pray for me. My words slapped me in the face or should I say my words have convicted me of my sin. After all prayer is just a conversation with God and conversation is just talk, and talk is what I do most of all! I talk to everyone and anyone, and sometimes I talk to myself so much I wish I could tell myself to be quite. So why in all my talking did I not take time to talk to God about somebody else as I said I would? So I changed all that, about five years ago, with my new and improved prayer plan. When someone is in distress or needs immediate prayer I only say I prayed for you if I did it, and when I tell someone I will keep you in my prayers I only say it if I mean it. That means I put that person’s name on a piece of paper and put it on my refrigerator to remind me to pray for them. I would like to tell them I will talk to God about you but that sounds a little cRaZy. Jesus gave us a perfect example of how to pray He said it simply and beautifully so I follow His guide. I will praise God, thank God, ask God and that is all simply talking to God. Most importantly, when I say, “I’ll pray” I will!

Sugar Scrub & Me

I am a huge fan of sugar scrubs! With my event-filled adventure with cancer treatment, I would do anything to stop the crazy itching. Dry skin was an understatement parched is probably a better word. Seriously, I tried so many over the counter & prescription anti-itch, rash; don’t claw your skin off medicines, and none of them worked. Then I met my friend Sugar Scrub (insert ahhh sound here)! I made my own and used it daily from that point on Mr. Itchy Scratchy left my house. So inexpensive and easy to make you will wonder why you have gone all of your life without it. Try this wonderful recipe my friend has so lovely posted you will love it too!

Gift Cards

I love love love gift cards! I love to get them; they just make me so happy! Believe it or not, I even had a dream once that I went to my mailbox and every envelope I opened had a gift card inside- crazy right! When I go into a store with my gift card in hand, somehow I feel that I can buy anything I want in that store. Standing in line at Starbucks I will look over the menu to see if I will get a drink I have never tried no matter the cost because “I” have a gift card, as I get to the counter I end up ordering the same thing as always a Grande drip. Once, I received a gift card to Home Goods for $100.00, entering the store I started to look at things I normally wouldn’t like a large red vase, and shiny new pots & pans, fancy drawer liners. You know it ended up I had the hardest time using that money I had waaay to many choices. Maybe it is silly but somehow the word “budget” seems to leave my mind, I will look at things I normally wouldn’t and I typically end up getting something on sale. I guess so I can say I bought so much more with that "gift card". Cheep date right! Some people think that giving a gift card is not personal but to me it is just fun! Have you seen some of them they have cute pictures on them for whatever occasion birthday, wedding holidays from the normal credit card size to the pop-out book kind with music. Target actually has one that is a viewfinder and you can add a personal message. Really, it doesn’t matter what store they are from or the amount all I know is that they are a “Gift”. My heart always reminds me of the perfect gift, Jesus. In addition, He has also given us a gift card, the great Comforter the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, "I am leaving you with a gift -- peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn't like the peace the world gives. So don't be troubled or afraid.”. Jesus is the absolute perfect gift given to us and all we have to do is accept him. There is no requirements, limitations, amount or expiration on that gift card, and most importantly, it is FREE. I think that is why I have such a love affair with gift cards it reminds me of my Father and the gift He has given me.
John14:26.But when the Father sends the Counselor as my representative -- and by the Counselor I mean the Holy Spirit -- he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I myself have told you.
27."I am leaving you with a gift -- peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn't like the peace the world gives. So don't be troubled or afraid.
