Meal Challenge - Week 4


 On Friday I made a dish called "Cashew Curried Beef" for week 4 of the meal challenge...sounds good, right? W.E.L.L.......Jenna's here to report that it was terrible! I doubled the batch (thinking it would taste like the delicious chinese food that I love!). Do I need to mention that the chickens got a feast? Yuck.


Everyone except Mom quickly moved on to plan B, which happened to just be some frozen pizza - but it tasted real good and we couldn't go wrong:)

My thoughts are already flying ahead to next week's new meal, and I'm thinking that I'll try something a little bit more "all-american" like ham balls because we have 3 pigs in our freezers!

One last thing before I fall into bed ~

My blogging creativity has failed me for the time being, but I'm hoping to be back at it soon - starting tomorrow night with a post that will send you on a mission - for a book from 1828 - any guesses? It's big and green!

I enjoy hearing what is going on in all of your lives...so drop a comment if you have the time - I love to read them:)

Hello Jenna, You are such a dear sweet young Lady! I love reading how you are helping your family and your Mother and most importantly being used by the Lord to serve. Now here's the problem, I don't quite know why your meal wasn't good? I love cashew anything and I love curried beef! What went wrong? Do you want to share? You are such a dear, and I wished so much that you and our goat loving daughter could be neighbors...she so desires a heart to heart friend! hugs and love, mumofeight

Are you hosting this Meal Challenge or is going around in the blogging community? I would like to do it too:) That meal did "sound" good but often times it does turn out that way lol. Btw I love your blog:) As a fellow country girl I find it very neat and interesting!

Blessings and Love,
Whitney

Great job on the meal challenge Jenna. You'll learn a lot as you go along and probably already have! Keep up the great work! Your family will be glad they were the guinea pigs later. :)
Blessings,
Kelsey

Ohh that's a bummer! It's no fun to spend the time making something just to have it turn out lousy. You'll get it next time!
As for blogging creativity, I kinda feel that way my self sometimes... okay, I feel like that right now. :)
