This Macaroni Cheese Recipe is my go-to meal when I have no idea what to make my family for supper or lunch. It is one of our family favorites. Mark has got so good at making this Macaroni Cheese Recipe, he can make it in 35 minutes. All the ingredients are pantry stables so I normally have everything I need to make it at the last minute.
Meal variation for toddlers: Give your toddlers some cooked macaroni, grated cheese and baby tomatoes on a plate and let them feed themselves.

I absolutely love this Cinnamon Jam Squares Recipe. The only ingredients that are not pantry stables are the apricot jam and desiccated coconut. However, in my house we always have apricot jam. Apricot Jam is one of the most affordable flavours of jam in South Africa. I also normally have desiccated coconut because I often bake with it.
Tip: Desiccated coconut’s shelf life can be prolonged by keeping it in the freezer.

I have some inside info about something your guidance teacher never told you, as a young women, when you were faced with choosing your career.
At some point in our teenage years the question comes up “What are you going to do after High School?” If you are one of the lucky people who had the finances or scholarship, you had to choose what you were going to study. Inevitably the guidance teacher would have looked at your grades, maybe given you an aptitude test, and had a short conversation with you.
If not the guidance teacher, you may have done a few online personality tests to try and figure out what you were going to do or study. A few rare people know exactly what they want to do for the rest of their lives before they have even needed to do any assessments.
But as an experienced adult with 2 children, I am going to share something with you that no guidance teacher ever told me.

Praying for one another is the first act of serving others that a Christian learns to do. We pray for the protection of our families. We pray for those who do not yet know Jesus Christ as their Savior. And we pray for our own spiritual growth. But sometimes we forget to pray as we ought to. This is why I have included a Prayer Tracker in my Bullet Journal.

I’ve finished making my first monthly Bullet Journal flip-through. I can tell you one thing for sure, it is different from other Bullet Journals. You see, I’m a Christian and that means I have a Christian Bullet Journal. Well sort-of…
I mean, a Bullet Journal is an inanimate object, it can’t be a Christian. But a Bullet Journal tends to reflect the personality of it’s creator. Since I am a Christian, my bullet journal will reflect that.

What is housekeeping? And why do I say it is a skill? Wikipedia gives a perfect description of housekeeping::
Housekeeping refers to the management of duties and chores involved in the running of a household, such as cleaning, cooking, home maintenance, shopping, laundry and bill pay. These tasks may be performed by any of the household members, or by other persons hired to perform these tasks. (Wikipedia)

An opening line to a book I recently read was “This book is for ambitious people who want to get ahead faster.” My first thought was “What does the author mean by “get ahead faster”. What are we getting ahead of? What race is he referring to? Naturally he was referring to “The Race Of Life” Continue reading “The Race of Life”
Here is a question, what is the driving force behind your life? Do you have life dreams and what are they? I am convinced that everybody has at least one life dream, most of us have many life dreams. Some of us have given up on our life dreams, others actively pursue them and then there are those that want to pursue their life dreams but find something is lacking in their ability to do so.
How do you recognize your life dreams? I have found that the following are characteristics of life dreams:
- They were created in childhood or as a young adult
- They were the result of a fond memory or life changing moment
- They have never gone away, it is always at the back of your mind
- The themes behind the dream are intertwined with your personality
- Choices you made that pulled you away from your dream are the ones you regret the most
Let me elaborate on the above points. Continue reading “5 characteristics of life dreams”
