~9 Guests and a recipe~

~Today Bro. Jimmy and Sis. Farly, their girls, Bro. Jimmy's parents, and his sister Judy and her family came over for Sunday dinner. This was my first time since I've been expecting to have so many guests over, but the Lord gave me strength to get it all done and go to church too. =) I decided to go with a simple menu. I made a yummy soup called "Taco Soup", a big salad, and served my whole wheat bread.~While my bread was cooling on the table...it was eye level and within reach of our littlest boy. I told Elijah NOT to touch my bread...and then I went into my kitchen and was working and I looked out to see this...
He was REALLY wanting some bread...But...he was a good boy and didn't touch it. =)
~For our dessert I made a carrot cake with yummy homemade Cream cheese frosting. Kimberly and I dyed a part of the icing orange, and another part green and made "carrots" on top of our cake.

~We really enjoyed having everyone here and they seemed to enjoy their time too. We had some good discussions and a nice time visiting together.~
~Jimmy's Mother and brother-in-law helped wash up all of the dishes. What a HUGE help to me. =) Here is Jimmy's Sister and Mother helping me in my kitchen.~
~Kimberly and Lady visiting in Kimberly and Sarah's room.~
~Sarah, Gaby and Noah smiling for the camera. I didn't get a picture of Elijah nor of little David (Jimmy's nephew) for they were taking naps.~
Here is the recipe for that yummy Taco soup that I served today! Sarah Rundell Robberts gave me this recipe. Enjoy!
~Taco Soup~
1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained.
2 cans corn, undrained.
2 cans of beans (about 3 cups) undrained.
16 oz. salsa
1 qt. tomato juice
1/4 cup taco seasoning.
Mix all ingredients and heat thoroughly.
Serve with grated cheese, taco chips and sour cream.
It's fast, easy and yummy!

P.S. When Natasha saw that Pic of Elijah looking at the bread, she said, "Oh, I miss that little guy so much!"
