The most important things... aren't things ♥

♥Being a mother means that your heart
is no longer yours; it wanders
wherever your children do♥

   A Mother's Prayer

    Help me dear Lord, as a mother, I pray
    And bless these hands folded in prayer today;
    May they be ever strong as they guide, as they teach,
    Beings never too far for a child to reach.
    May they never, with selfishness, try to dissuade,
    Nor too quickly punish, nor too slowly aid.
    May they point out the pleasures in laughter and song,
    And may they show, wisely, the right from the wrong,
    So that one day I'll know that I've helped all I can
    To make her a woman, to make him a man.

Blazing Hot Wing Sauce... Yes Please!

My husband and our friend Paul decided to try and cook dinner out of a cookbook I recently got Bo for his birthday, called The Beer Lover's Cookbook. I found it at Spencer's Gifts in case you are interested. We weren't really sure what to think, but it turned out awesome! So here it is... Enjoy!

1 packet Good Seasons Italian Dressing (powder)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
2 cups Frank's Red Hot Cayenne Pepper Sauce
6 tablespoons beer

If preparing with chicken wings:

In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients, mexing well. The sauce is ready to serve, either over chicken wings or as a dipping sauce for chicken tenders.

To prepare sauce with chicken wings: In a pot, boil the 1 to 2 dozen wings until they float. Place the chicken wings into a baking dish. Pour the Blazing Hot Wing Sauce over the wings. Bake the wings at 350 degress for 45 minutes or until desired crispiness.

This was so good! I should've taken a picture of the end results. I was so proud of them!  And, if you're interested in the cookbook, you can just click the link and get a great deal on Amazon!
