Foodie Post : Pinwheeled Steaks

Sooooo I am going to switch it up on this post today. 

You guys already know that I LOVEEEEE JESUS. 

What I also love is …. FOOOD!!!!! (Of course not in the same capacity as Jesus 😉) 

Yes. Yes. I am a foodie, Indeed. No shame in it either! 

The other night I was scrolling on Pinterest and discovered this recipe for pinwheeled steaks. I couldn’t help but to try it  out. 

The recipe called for: 

  1. A few “slabs” of flat iron skillet steak or steak that was cut very fine. 
  2. Cream cheese
  3. Green bell peppers 
  4. Slices of hard boiled egg
  5. Cilantro 
  6. Green onions
  7. Sun-dried tomatoes
  8. Frozen Spanish leaves 
  9. Olive oil

I couldn’t find the flat iron skillet cuts at Kroger so I substituted for a different cut that wasn’t too bulky. When I got home, I made sure to cut each slice in half to make it even finer (just in case). When it comes to stuffing anything, if it’s too much… all of the goodies that you’re trying to use will just fall right out. 

I used everything that the recipe called for except the sun dried tomatoes. I’m glad I left that out because it would’ve been too much on there. Lol


If you make this, be prepared to get your hands dirty. 🙂 




They also call for you to use a certain type of string or toothpicks to hold the product together. I used my hemp wick. It is THC free, very natural and durable as well. 

After an hour of being baked at 475 degrees, it was completed! I am truly in love with this meal. Definitely my all time favorite as of now. Only thing to make it better would be to wrap it in bacon! (Hint to self for next time 😍) 

(The picture below is how it looked before being fully cooked)


Highly recommend that you guys try it out! You will NOT be disappointed 😍

Devotional: Listen for the Still, Small Voice. 

Good Morning Everyone! Last night I stumbled upon this old excerpt from Joyce Meyer called “Listen for the Still, Small Voice.” She a few pointers on how to listen for The Lords Voice. 

Check it out below! 
——————————————

“To find peace in our lives, we simply need to obey the promptings God gives us each day. A prompting is a “knowing” deep down on the inside, telling us what to do. First Kings 19:11-12 refers to this knowing as a still, small voice. A prompting isn’t a whack on the head with a hammer!

In 1 Kings, the Lord didn’t use the great and strong wind, the earthquake or fire to prompt Elijah. His voice came to Elijah as a sound of gentle stillness and a still, small voice. A prompting doesn’t even have to be a voice at all. In fact, God often gives direction by speaking to your heart rather than to your ears.

If we’ll simply learn to listen to God and do what He says, we’ll discover that things will go well for us. No matter what the situation, we need to listen to God and obey His voice. You may not understand the reasons that God is asking you to do certain things, but as you listen to His voice and obey His direction, you can experience a peaceful calmness. So listen up!




Prayer Starter: Holy Spirit, help me to listen closely to hear Your promptings every day. I want Your peace, so I will listen to You.”

Her prayer starter is awesome! There are times where the thoughts in your head are not from God. Those same bad thoughts are not healthy to harp on either. It is best to defer them as soon as they come about. How do you know which are from The Lord? Simply ask the Lord to reveal His truth and wisdom. (And continue to ask!!!) I promise He will do it! 😀

Have a wonderful Wednesday my friends! ❤️

The Controversial Topic: #TakeAKnee 

WHEW! What an intriguing subject. Hold on to your hats folks!!!! 

As the world is becoming more unstable and gearing off its hinges; we as believers in Christ HAVE to speak up on subjects that aren’t the easiest to talk about.

I believe that America is being challenged right now by God. God gave the sun, moon, and stars to be signs for certain things to come. 

  1. Last year around this time, we had a blood moon. 
  2. We have seen the “Great American” solar eclipse come about last month. 
  3. In 7 years there will be another one that will cross align with the previous eclipse over America (hopefully you know the important of the number 7). 
  4. Harder to differ between the seasons. 
  5. Natural disasters are coming about with FULL FORCE on every corner of the earth. 
  6. Rumors of many wars.

Kept the list short because it goes onnnnnnnnn. 

We are certainly in the LAST MINUTES of this world & this has been ordained from the beginning of time. It’s not a time to be scared but a time to get prepared and spread of gospel of Jesus and His love that He is so graciously provides. 

 
America was founded on parts of Christianity. (I say parts because a lot of the first colonists were rapists, racists and hateful people. They actually didn’t act like Christ in their actions.)

America has blantantly cursed God & only want to wallow in their own ways of sin. We have passed laws that do not coincide with God. Notice when you start to bring awareness to other’s wrongful ways, they automatically say “I’m born this way. The government has told me it’s okay. Take it or leave it”.

From selfishness, hate, greed and LUST it’s tearing America down. Unfortunately, this is only the beginning. 



Anywho……

I was scrolling on Facebook last night and came across an old coworker’s post regarding the #TakeAKnee stance. I normally do not get on Facebook because a lot of nonsense is posted on there. 

(Her post is attached below ….)

 

Not everything in her post was ignorant but it didn’t make sense to me. What is her point?

  • To shut up about our fellow brothers and sisters being innocently killed by government officials? Excuse my language, but HELL NO! I will not do that.
  • Apparently standing up for the cause is “asking for an handout”. What in the….. we are asking them to stop killing us. We just want to LIVE!!!!!!
  • Calling us “cry babies” and to “call our grandparents” for advice on how to be tough???? WHAT?!? 😤

My acenstors were oppressed while being in this nation and if I could “call them” for advice… they would tell me to fight for our American given rights. My ancestors paved ways for my family & I to have the “normalized” / unsegregated lives that we live now. People who are not minorities are showing the most resistance to open their EYES, EARS and HEARTS to the real point of why #TakeAKnee holds value.

I wanted to comment on her post but instead I made one of my own. 

See my following response below:

 

All in all, I am not too surprised that these situations are becoming more frequent. In 2015, The Lord began to show me visions of how America would become heavily chaotic. 

Revealing how the government would start to treat minorities as animals once again. 
Leading other civilians to follow. 
Revealing and unleashing inner hatred.
At times, I sit at awe that these visions are coming to past right in front of my eyes. 

 
Point being, it is going to get crazier and crazier in this world. We have to PRAY, REBUKE AND MAKE A STAND FOR WHAT CHRIST STANDS FOR. God is love and this world… these people …..are not showing love anywhere. 

 

As tough as these conversations are, challenge yourself to break the mold and be proactive in them. We are about to have a lot more controversy come about while we remain here. 

If you like it or not…. NOT speaking up reflects on you. We are on earth to withhold certain duties. What we do on earth will be recited back to us eventually. We shall be rewarded as well in heaven for the great things we achieve in Jesus’ name. When those flashbacks of my life are beckoned upon the screen before God & others… I rather not cringe in shame as I watch. But hey, that’s just me. 😅

Morning Prayer – Forgiveness 

FORGIVENESS. A lot of people turn a blind eye to this subject. I believe upholding bitterness or hurtful feelings towards someone affects you more than it does them. Without letting these feelings go it can bring unwanted energies into your life. Some would say that sickeness is one of them. *ponders*
I just know by forgiving others, I can live my life to the fullest which is called being unbothered! 

Unbotheredness

That right there is a peace that only the Lord can provide to us. If you have a hard time forgiving someone regarding something they’ve done to you, ask the Lord for His help. He is more than willing! We have to be willing to receive that Glorious help. 


Prayer Starter:God, I am willing. Breathe on me and fill me with Your Spirit. I choose to receive the enabling power of the Holy Spirit and forgive.”
