Undying Hope

⚓ We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. - Hebrews 6:19-20a ⚓

We Will Never Forget


"Sixteen years ago today, a great people were moved to defend a great nation. Never Forget."

As we remember the tragic day 16 years ago that changed our lives forever, please take time to say a prayer for those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice, for those that lost family members on 9/11, for our military, and for our country. We will NEVER forget.

God Bless America, and those who defend it... The Land of the Free, Because of the Brave.

Cooking Simplified: Easy Meatloaf

I came across this meatloaf recipe a couple years ago, and it has since then become a family favorite. Honestly, my boys LOVE this meatloaf, and are absolutely thrilled every single time they find out that I'm making it for dinner. Of course with a house full of boys (one who's a teenager), plus my husband to feed, I always triple the amounts on the recipe, and rarely have any leftovers.
Yes...it's THAT good! 😊💕🍽🍜🛒

Easy Meatloaf

Ingredients:

1 1/2 Pounds ground beef
1 egg
1 onion, chopped
1 Cup milk
salt to taste
pepper to taste
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. mustard
1/3 Cup ketchup

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, egg, onion, milk and bread crumbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste and place in a lightly greased 9x5 inch loaf pan, OR form into a loaf and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. (I personally like to make the sauce below first and add about a 1/4 cup of it to the meatloaf mixture.)

3. In a separate small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard, and ketchup. Mix well and pour over the meatloaf. (I always make extra to pour on the slices, too.)

4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour or until center is done.

That's it...super easy to make and incredibly delicious!
