Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Peppers {Low Carb}




After seeing a picture similar to this on Pinterest, I decided to create my own version of this recipe.  I made this for supper last night and it was really yummy!  :)  My only complaint was that the peppers didn't get quite done enough, so I think that next time I make this I will pre-bake my peppers for about ten minutes before adding the filling. 


Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Pepper Recipe
Ingredients
  • Green Peppers (at least 1 per person)
  • Sweet onions
  • Provolone Cheese (2 slices for each pepper)
  • Steak-um's Philly Cheese Steaks
Instructions
  1. Cut the tops off your bell peppers and clean out the insides.  Reserve pepper tops and chop up. 
  2. Place the peppers on a baking sheet and line the insides of each pepper with a slice of provolone cheese.
  3. Chop onions and cook the onions, chopped pepper tops, and Steak-Ums (broken into pieces) in a bit of butter in a skillet. 
  4. Stuff the peppers with the pepper, onion, Steak-Um mixture.
  5. Cover each pepper with a slice of provolone cheese.
  6. Bake at 350 for 10 to 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and mixture is bubbly.


Let me know if you give this recipe a try!

Tuesday's Tip {from a Mom of 10!}



Today I want to share with you a new product which I've recently discovered that you will definitely want to keep on hand!

On the first day of our trip to Tennessee, one of my sons noticed a patch of poison ivy on his leg from helping to clear some overgrown land the day before.  Now, in the past, when one of my sons would get poison ivy, it would spread ferociously, and after fighting a losing battle, we always ended up at the doctor's office for a round of steroids and usually a shot to get it under control.  :(

I had heard that the Plexus Body Cream was effective on poison ivy, so I pulled out my brand new bottle and put it to the test!





According to my son, it relieved the itching right away!  It also healed the blistery rash without any spreading, as you can see from the pictures above!!! 

Then, on the last day of our trip, one of my daughters was stung twice on the foot by a bee that got in her shoe.  :(  She put a little dab of Body Cream on the affected area, and we were astonished when thirty minutes later, there were no signs of a bee sting!  The redness and swelling were totally gone!

So, my tip for today is to get some Plexus Body Cream and add it to your arsenal!  It is effective on a wide variety of skin conditions, rashes, bites and stings that a mother of many must know how to expertly treat!  :)

(And while you're at it, put a dab on your own laugh lines, crow's feet, age spots, etc! You will appreciate its rejuvenating effects!)

Marriage Monday: The Submissive Wife {Guest Post & Link Up}




Welcome back to Marriage Monday!  I'm so glad you've joined me as we focus on strengthening and promoting godly marriages, both in our nation and in our own backyards. 

Since I was on vacation with my family this past week in the mountains of Tennessee, I thought this was a perfect time to share this guest post written by a friend of mine! The amazing thing is it fits in perfectly with my godly wife series, and discusses the quality that the Lord had put on my heart to cover next!  (Isn't our God just amazing like that??)  :)





This week I watched a woman and her young daughter move out of our neighborhood.  My heart sank to see this young mother separating from her husband.. I wondered what had caused this tragedy and quickly realized that the best thing I could do for them was pray for God's presence to be manifested in their lives to help heal their marriage before it was too late.

As I was praying for them, I contemplated how many couples I have seen suffer through divorce. God directed me to meditate on the following verse: “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.” - Ephesians 5:22-24

Are we really living each day according to this scripture?  I know we have heard it many times -- “submission” -- that sometimes dreaded word.  Some of us first began to truly understand that word when we were saved by the grace of Christ.

It is important to understand this commandment in our homes - first submitting to Christ, then to our husbands. When we submit to Christ and study his word daily, his Spirit will begin to teach us how to honor our husbands. I believe this is one of the most important things you can do to strengthen your marriage.

In honoring your husband, you are directly protecting your family. In one of  Dr. Dobson's books, he pointed out how the state of marriage has declined since the 1950's. Much of our society has embraced the women's liberation movement that encourages women to usurp their husband's authority in the home. This is clearly a result of satan's direct attack on families.

We need to be keenly aware that satan is attacking our marriages every day in an attempt to destroy them. Please hear that again – satan is out to destroy your marriage! It can start out as that little nagging voice in your head “I can not believe my husband did ______”; “It drives me crazy when he  ________”.  Then anger starts to take hold in our hearts. This is where the dangerous process starts.  If we let the anger take root, then the seeds of dissatisfaction will lay the  ground to begin destroying our marriage.  “A wrathful man stirs up strife, But he who is slow to anger allays contention” - Proverbs 15:18.

We can instead choose the godly model of marriage by honoring our husbands and letting them make decisions for our families. We are then giving our husbands the God given authority for our household.  As we relinquish the authority to him, it allows him to be the husband God intended.  Also, pray for your husband each day, that God will help him become a stronger man of God. Our husbands will in turn be edified in our marriages and allowed to stand in their God given authority.  This will strengthen our marriages, families and homes.  



Angela shared about loving her husband during the tough times in this spot last November. God is still teaching and refining her as she walks through the fire. As she continues her desert journey, she is faithfully recording the words that God gives to her, often in the middle of the night. She is not sure if the words which she spills in the moonlight will find their way into a book of their own, or maybe a blog, or if they will stay safely tucked away in a quiet journal.  But wherever He leads, she will follow.

Tuesday's Tips {from a Mom of 10!}




Make memories with your children!  Let things go if you have to -- but enjoy your little ones (and not so little ones!) while you can!  Children grow up faster than you can imagine!  

Don't get caught up in a cycle of negativity!  Find something to praise your children for every day! Make them feel loved and special!  Tie heart strings!  You'll never regret it!  :)
