Dear Hallee: “Help!”

Posted by Hallee on Sep 30, 2011 in homeschooling, Housekeeping, Life, Marriage, Parenting

I’m embarrassed to say how long ago I received the following letter – several weeks at least. I read it, and started mulling over it and just never got back to it. It took me a while to decide how to respond, and then it took me a while to decide to respond here. The subject line in the email was “Help!”

What This Is Not

Posted by Hallee on Sep 28, 2011 in Blog Stuff, Life

Wordpress has had a few major security updates lately. Gregg has always handled everything on the site end of this blog, but one of the updates happened while he was traveling home from Afghanistan. During his most recent (and final) trip home, it took him four days of traveling before he was finally here – and most of those days he had no internet connection.

So, when Wordpress updated, it stripped my Stat Counter code.

This, Too, Shall Pass

Posted by Hallee on Sep 27, 2011 in Life, Parenting

My friend, Angela, has three little boys. Her oldest is in kindergarten and her youngest is one. Her middle boy has Down’s Syndrome and is extremely high maintenance. Angela, though, is wonderful and handles all of the challenges in her life with such grace that she inspires even the most weary of moms around her. She blogs with humor and amazing depth at her blog My Three Sons.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 30 – His Future

Posted by Hallee on Sep 25, 2011 in Christian Faith, Holy matrimony, Love, Marriage, Prayer, Praying Wife

Last Sunday, a couple in our church celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. I LOVE that there are several couples in our church that have been married for over 50 years. I think that is amazing. Gregg and I were older when we got married, so neither one of us really expect to make it to 65 years, but we’ll take 50 with gladness and joy.

Fabulous Supper Nachos

Posted by Hallee on Sep 22, 2011 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes

My mom found this recipe in a magazine probably thirty years ago. This recipe is AMAZING. I don’ t know exactly what sets it apart from other hot nachos recipes, but something does. You won’t find a better dish to take to a party – this is probably the dish for which I’m most often asked for the recipe. They’re called “Supper Nachos” because they are a meal. They’re a family favorite.

Homemade Taco Seasoning Spice Blend

Posted by Hallee on Sep 22, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sauces & spreads

I’m not a fan of the packaged seasoning mixes only because they contain ingredients other than the spices. I haven’t been using them now for about two years and haven’t missed using them yet.

Homemade Refried Beans

Posted by Hallee on Sep 22, 2011 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mexican, Recipes, sides

I never realized how easy it was to make refried beans. As much as we love Mexican food, I hate to think about how many cans of beans we’ve gone through. This recipe is great as a side dish or in any recipe that calls for refried beans. This recipe will make 2 cans worth (about 2 pounds).
