The encouragement of these girls as moms and wives is refreshing and God sent. They keep me looking to God and seeking Him in the midst of the things God has me doing in this life. Getting together is not as easy nor as often as we would like but our time together is always some of the best moments shared.
Well, when Lauren found out she was having baby #2 and would need girl stuff after her world of blue, we couldn't let her have a sweet baby girl without a proper celebration so us girls got together to do just that.
(I love this recipe because of the name AND because you can prep it ahead. Well, and it is incredibly easy and good:)
1 (15oz) can black eyed peas
1 (11 oz) can yellow corn with red and green bell peppers
3 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 cup hot picante sauce
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
Rinse and drain peas and corn.
Stir together peas, corn, tomatoes, and next 5 ingredients in a serving bowl; cover and chill at least 2 hours. Serve with tortilla chips
Bruschetta-Goat Cheese Cups
1 (1.4 oz) package crispy pastry shells
1 (4 oz) goat cheese log, crumbled
1/2 cup refrigerated sweet pepper, vegetable, and olive bruschetta topping or tapenade
Garnish: Fresh thyme leaves
Place shells in a shallow pan. Divide goat cheese evenly between shells, pressing gently to fill bottom of each. Spoon 1 tsp. bruschetta topping into each shell
Bake at 350 for 4 to 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Garnish, if desired.
Since this shower, Lauren had her precious baby girl, Atlas Vivian and she is just a blessing.
