I managed to get my daily chores done, quite a bit of freezer cooking completed, and assisted the band director again.
Of late, I’ve been very judgmental about certain members of my family who I don’t feel are living up to their potential. They seem to want everything handed to them on the proverbial silver platter. Unfortunately, I failed to realize that I’ve been a bit of a slug-a-bug too and I really shouldn’t be judging others.
I love the following verse. It was just what I needed to knock the dust off my rear.
Proverbs 12:11 ESV -
“Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread, but he who follows worthless pursuits lacks sense.”
You’re gonna be glad I got some work done because Make-Ahead Freezer Meatballs are perfect for a variety of different recipes. I’ve got a few recipes that I use them in and I’ll be sharing them as quickly as possible.
