Hey there!  It’s been quite some time since my last post. Just about 2 years ago to the day!

All has been fine – life just got in the way when I took on a new job. I’ve settled into my new job now and feel like I have more time to concentrate on other things! I’ve been wanting to get back into blogging and this recipe convinced me to write a post to share it with you all! Because it is so goooood!

Who doesn’t love tots??!!  This is recipe is so easy and yummy you have to give it a try!

As usual, it was a weeknight in which I had not planned dinner and had very little ingredients to make anything. So, I started searching through the pantry and freezer and found hamburger and tater tots. I thought they would go well together – you know – like meat and potatoes :). I searched for some vegetables to add and picked corn and green beans. Looking through the pantry I found Lipton Onion Soup Mix, beef broth, and canned tomatoes. I thought the soup would give it good flavor and the tomatoes would give it color.

This recipe only took 15-20 minutes to make. It is super fast, so I’m going to keep the ingredients on hand for an emergency meal.


As I was thinking about what recipe to share with you, I was also keeping my eyes and ears open for a bible verse that would speak to me. We are studying the Book of Acts and church and we read Chapter 14 verse 17…

“He provides you with plenty of food and fills your heart with joy”

This verse definitely caught my attention. Whenever I read anything in bible about food I’m always thinking about how I can blog about it. The Lord certainly does provide us with plenty of food and gives us joyful hearts. This is evidence of his goodness. Food does bring us joy because usually it accompanies the presence of family and friends. I’m grateful for all the wonderful times spent together with family, friends, and food! I’m also grateful for a God that provides everything I need, even when I don’t realize it. This fills my heart with joy!

Joy to you all!
