Wealth and Royalty

Happy Friday my prosperous peeps! Today I’m feeling a little rich In the spirit! Often we look at things in monetary value, when simply sometimes it’s not about how much we have it’s about how much faith we have! The color purple represents wealth and royalty I envisioned myself stepping through the gates of heaven draped in purple meeting our Heavenly Father! I did a little quad of things that I thought would look good on me in the color that I feel suits my vision today. When you dress, dress to impress! Wear things that improve you and your thinking! How we present ourselves make up a lot of our own and other peoples thoughts on us! We should attempt to dress our best even when we aren’t feeling so. Here’s my purple fashion for what I call faith Friday!!

Easy veggie chicken & broccoli fettuccine

IMG_8677.JPG

Happy day beautiful people!! It’s fettuccine Friday here at my house!!! Today, I wanted to share my veggie chicken and broccoli fettuccine. For the meat lovers you can substitute the veggie chicken with chicken breast or chicken strips! So let’s gets started!!

What you’ll need! (Recipe feeds about 6)
1 bag of gardein lightly seasoned chick’n scallopini
1 box of fettuccine
2 jars of Alfredo sauce (I like Bertolli)
1 bag of frozen broccoli

Step one
Cook your fettuccine, drain it and put aside.

Step two
Sauté your broccoli in a little olive oil.

Step three
In another pan spray Pam or oil your pan with olive oil; season your gardein chick’n and cook until both sides are cooked evenly. Put the cooked chick’n aside.

Step four
Pour the two jars of Alfredo over the sautéed broccoli. Season the Alfredo and broccoli; stir and cook until heated.

Step 5
Slice your chick’n into strips,

Step 6
Depending on how many people you are serving plate the fettuccine. Place about 6 chick’n strips over each serving of fettuccine. Some people like their fettuccine saucy, some don’t! It’s up to you how much of your Alfredo and broccoli sauce you want poured over your noodles. Pour as much as you like!

There it is, a easy meal that saves time and hunger! I like to have my fettuccine with cheesy garlic bread!
Let me know if you enjoyed this simple dish with a veggie twist!!!

So long friends

Happy Saturday, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking almost too much thinking lol! I’ve learned over the years I’ve given out so much of myself that I haven’t saved enough for me. When I created this blog my intentions/goal were to share a few of my gifts that were given to me by our Heavenly Father. I feel in my spirit I’ve done just that. Blogging was a creative outlet, a place to share a little of me with my readers. As time has passed I’ve come to a decision that will be best for God first and myself second. The energy I’ve used for this blog can be used for my true dream. Yes I love blogging, but truthfully it’s time for me to do something for Christian. God is ready for me to use my gift as who he has truly called me to be. The Virtuous Woman. It has been a blast sharing all my adventures but it’s time to say goodbye for now. I have duties, responsibilities that I have to tend to and a business to build. Love you dearly thank you for all your encouragement, comments and love! You will truly be missed!

Miracle babies

Expectancy is the atmosphere for miracles. ~Edwin Louis Cole
When I think back to my pregnancy and how difficult it was, it makes me so thankful that I had faith that I would make it through. There were a few times the doctors told me they didn’t see the fetus! Ha….I said, the baby is In there! I expected my baby to make it full term and to be healthy! Almost 17 months later she is here happy, sassy, funny and healthy!!! Far more than what I expected!!! When I think about my cousin who went into labor early because the umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby’s neck; she didn’t fret because she knew in her heart of hearts that her baby girl would pull through; she expected her baby to be okay! When I think about my other cousin and her journey with having her son extremely prematurely, being in and out the hospital; she never said he’s not going to make it! She kept fighting! She expected her her baby to be a survivor and to come home whole! In these three cases we expected our babies, to survive…to be healthy and strong! Not that it was easy, not that we didn’t have days that we had to be extremely persistent in our faith and pray constantly…we expected our babies, our now MIRACLES!!!! This message is for someone who is still expecting their baby! I wrote this for you… No names, hopefully you know who you are! Your baby is just getting it’s last touches from the angels to be delivered to your womb! Get ready!!

Miracle babies!!!

Loving unconditionally

Good afternoon! I watched Joel Osteen today and he preached on loving unconditionally! Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, you don’t know a persons situation, we aren’t perfect; give everyone a chance! It was a beautiful message! Then he gave a beautiful example of how a mother, a father and their 1 year old was out eating breakfast. The little boy kept smiling laughing, and playing and the mother didn’t know why! She finally saw the baby was so entertained by a man sitting a little ways from them. The man looked to be homeless, less fortunate, hair wasn’t combed his clothes weren’t clean…you get the point. The baby wouldn’t stop playing with the man across the room! The man even spoke loudly to the baby, saying hi! The mother and father tried to hurry and eat out of embarrassment! When they were finished the mother was at the register and was about to pay. The man so happened to be behind her, the baby reached for the man and eventually was held by the man. The baby laid his head on the mans shoulder, the man had dirty hands and all. The moral of the story is, the baby was so innocent and had an unconditional love for the man! Not judging him because of his appearance! Joel Osteen said we should aspire to be like that innocent baby! Loving unconditionally! Stop judging and start loving! Our world needs love, the people around us that we think have issues need love not judgement! I thought about my innocent daughter! She doesn’t judge me, she only knows the world as a happy place. She comes to me with open arms and embraces me as I am, flaws and all. That’s how we should be!
We all need love, let’s start loving and stop judging!

Chicken, egg and cheese, biscuit w/peach jelly!!!

Good morning beauties! I remember when I use to eat meat, I use to love this chicken and biscuit sandwich from McDonalds…then they stopped selling it! Although I don’t eat chicken anymore I was inspired yesterday to make my own after going to Dunkin Donuts to get coffee; I noticed they have a little chicken biscuit sandwich of their own! Of course I had to add my own touches! I wanted to share the recipe, especially after yesterday with the whole secret macaroni situation!!!! I had to make up for that!! Here’s how to make it!!!

What you’ll need!!!

1 chicken breast
2 slices of sharp cheddar cheese
2 biscuits (the Pillsbury brand preferably)
2 eggs
Peach jelly

Step 1
Preheat your oven on 350.

Step 2
Season your chicken breast and flour it. Get your skillet hot with olive oil or what ever oil you like to use when cooking. When the skillet is hot, place your seasoned, floured, chicken breast in the skillet.

Step 3
Your oven should be pre-heated. Place your biscuits in the oven and cook for around 12-15 minutes.

Step 4
Check your chicken to see if it is cooked. When chicken is cooked place aside.

Step 5
In another skillet, place about 1/2 tablespoon of butter and let simmer. Crack your first egg and and let it cook, when the first side is finished flip over and add your sharp cheddar cheese let it melt slightly. Take the first egg out and place aside, cook the second egg using the same steps as the first.

Step 6
By now your biscuits should be done, or cooling…depending on how long everything else took to cook! Cut your biscuits open and slather jelly on each side.

Step 7
If you want a thick biscuit cut your chicken half way across, if not (like I did, cut down the chicken, making the chicken flat.) So there is good room for the fried egg and cheese. Place your cut chicken on the bottom of the biscuit.

Step 8
Now place your fried egg and cheese over the cut chicken breast. Top the sandwich with the other half of the biscuit.

Finally…take a bite out of this little delicious wonder!!!!

Good evening!!! How many of you are able to keep a secret? How many of you are loyal, and if someone told you something and told you to never tell a soul, could you hold that in? Well, tonight, I thought it would be cute to show and not tell the secret recipe of my mother’s macaroni and cheese! I vowed to my mother I would never tell! This macaroni is the best macaroni I’ve ever tasted, and I promise if I could I would give you the recipe! Let’s start a little discussion on secret recipes that you guys know! You don’t have to give the actual recipe but maybe you can tell me who the recipe is from and what it is!!! You can even share pics if you like!!! The point of this post, is to share with you that loyalty is everything! If you have someone in your life that exposes something special, meaningful, personal, and confidential to you, that means that person values and trusts you beyond your own understanding! Don’t mess that up! Trust is such a magnificent thing!!! Confidentiality is everything! Be a good confidant!

Here’s that top secret macaroni I’ve been waiting to show you!!!!
