Looks like a great week, on the Beth Moore study, are you doing that in a group or on your own. I was looking forward to doing a Beth Moore for personal study and really didn't know where to look for one.

My family really likes BBQ Beef. I like to take leftover roast and toss it with BBQ sauce. Yum!

Hope you have a great week!

Mmmm...Stroganoff is one of my very favorite foods. I've never seen a recipe that calls for cream cheese! I can't believe how incredibly good it must be!!

By the way, I tagged you with a little meme on my blog. Don't feel like you have to play along if you don't want. Sometimes these things are fun to get to know each other. I've been so busy it took me over a week to do it once I got tagged.

I hope you have a great week!!

I LOVE your blog! Thank you so much for visiting mine this morning. I use my crockpot at least 1 or 2 times per week so I have to try your recipe.
Have a blessed day!
