Suprise Blessings...

So I started this blog. I was and still am determined to stick to my menu. But then something happened... the tamale lady showed up at my cousins work and she called me. We had been talking about them yesterday and she wanted to know if we needed any. I couldn't resist. So dinner tonight was

TAMALES! They were so good, they were handmade. They were inexpensive and we loved them.

I started thinking... sometimes we get so narrow minded and determined that sometimes we miss the small blessings that come our way. Like the tamales. Now it's not always food (but sometimes it is!) but I really think that we need to sometimes just go with the flow.

So, I guess what I'm saying is that tonight, we didn't have easy peasey quiche. We had a chance to bless someone by purchasing their food, helping them make a living. We had the chance to have some of the most amazing tamales. All because we were willing to put the menu aside for a day.

Don't worry, we'll have the quiche next week. =)
And maybe I'll have to learn to make some tamales too.


  1. Steph, I love your blog!!!!! I'm making your Gyros tonight!! :)

    I turned those pitas into pita chips yesterday... YUM!

    We also had pita chips--so good, I doubt I will ever buy them again!
