In A Food Mood

I have a devotion running today at P31. Thanks to all of you who pop by for a visit! For those of you who've never stopped by my blog, on Mondays I write a food-themed post-- recipes, tips, etc. for busy women who find they still must somehow provide food for their families. Try as I might, I can't find a way around it. You all profit from those moments when I am "in a food mood" and plan out menus, try new recipes, think of fun things to do with food, etc. The idea is I then inspire you to also be "in a food mood."

Just go with it.

Today I thought I would share with you a recipe from my mother's day gift-- a homemade cookbook written and assembled by my daughter's pre-kindergarten class. This cookbook is SO cute and one of my favorite gifts from Mother's Day. Each mom contributed her favorite recipe and the class compiled, illustrated, and bound them all for us. I'm enjoying these and wanted to share this one with you:

Chicken Burrito Bake

4 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 cup store-bought medium-hot green tomatillo salsa
1 pkg shredded taco style cheese blend
8-10 flour tortillas
1 jar alfredo sauce
shredded lettuce, tomatoes, etc. for serving

Preheat oven to 375
Place chicken, salsa, 1/2 cup of cheese in mixing bowl. Stir until well combined.
Spoon 1/2 to 3/4 cup chicken mixture down center of each tortilla. Fold over, creating a filled log.
Place filled tortillas in 13X9 inch dish. (Place them snug against each other.)
Place pasta sauce and remaining 1.5 cups cheese in mixing bowl. Stir well.
Pour over burritos.
Bake 20-25 minutes, let cool 10 minutes.
Serve with toppings.
Pin It!

Hi, Marybeth,
I loved your devotional today. When you asked the question, "What are you facing today?" and listed several opportunities, I could answer "yes!" to each and every one of them. Life is full of challenges, and sometimes they come at you all at once. I do feel God's peace in my heart that He will guide me on the right path. Thank you for your encouragement, and the reminder to give it all to Him, for He can make sense of it all and make it work according to His perfect will.
Blessings and a belated "Happy Mother's Day!"

This sounds really good, and I have never made anything quite like this before. I bet that my family would also really love this recipe and I thank you for sharing it with us!

Thank you so much for the devotion today for Proverbs 31 Woman. I so needed to hear that today. Over the weekend the transmission blew out in my car and my husbands grandma fell and broke her hip and they are going to try to do surgery on her today, but they don't know if she will make it or how she will do after the surgery. It is hard to handle all of this...but I will take it to Him. :)

I just wanted to take a minute to tahnk you for your devotional this morning. I love what God teaches me through my children!

Atleast your cookbook was written by the moms - the kindergarten cookbooks i have, are written by the children, and so are memories, not useful!
