Mom Life: Crock-Pot Meals

I often struggle with the balance between family, home, work, and personal time. Let’s be honest, even as a SAHM (stay at home mom), the balance was off. Running around with three children, all under the age of four, I hardly had time to comb my hair, forget about cooking a meal or keeping a perfectly kept home. So what was the solution?  I went on a search to find some tips for surviving motherhood whiling maintaining a home. Soon, I came across crock-pot meals. Yes, I’m conquering food first because I live in a house full of men, and food is their main priority. Crock-pot meals seem to be a great way to cook hearty meals and still have time to tackle other things. Below are a few recipes I plan to try.

Meat Loaf, yummy! Click here for recipe link.

This Slow Cooker Meatloaf has a delicious savory-sweet brown sugar and balsamic glaze on top, and is cooked on a sheet of parchment paper that easily lifts the meatloaf out of the slow cooker when it's done cooking.

I’ll try tackling these recipes first and let you know how it went. If anyone has any suggestions or recipes you think I should try comment below.

Bible Journey: A Ram In The Bush

people-2602956_1920

On the third day of their journey, Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance. “Stay here with the donkey,” Abraham told the servants. “The boy and I will travel a little farther. We will worship there, and then we will come right back.”

So Abraham placed the wood for the burnt offering on Isaac’s shoulders, while he himself carried the fire and the knife. As the two of them walked on together, Isaac turned to Abraham and said, “Father?” “Yes, my son?” Abraham replied. “We have the fire and the wood,” the boy said, “but where is the sheep for the burnt offering?” “God will provide a sheep for the burnt offering, my son,” Abraham answered. And they both walked on together.   Genesis 22:4-8 NLT  

Comment: Losing his son had to be a hard pill for Abraham to swallow. But loosing his son, at his hands, must have been unbearable. Nevertheless, Abraham trusted God, and he knew if God brought him to that point he had a plan. During tough times, its’s hard to see God’s plan for our lives, but rest assure that he is working and will provide.
