The Lord Bless thee, and keep thee,
May the Lord make His face to shine upon thee!
And be gracious unto thee,
be gracious unto thee,
the Lord lift up,
thy countenance and give thee peace!

I have learned many things along this rocky road called life! The most important thing I've learned is that I needed a Savior long ago! I felt so lost before the Lord found me and I opened up my heart to Him. Many things were coming at me, not the least of which was a voice telling me that my life wasn't worth going on for! When the Lord found me, He saved me from this lying voice! I invited Him into my home and my heart! From then on it's been Him and I in all things. My hope for you is that if you are on that same rocky road that I was on, empty, wondering if it's worth it to go on, you too will invite the Lord to save you. He will show you that your life is worth living for Him!

Empanadas Senoritas!

Semi-Homade Empanadas!

These are sooooo easy to make!~ 

Purchase already made pie crust.  There will be 2 crusts in the package.  Unroll one crust to strart with.  
I used a 2 cup, round measuring bowl to cut out 4 circles.  Gather the left over crust and roll it out again to make one more circle.  Place 2 tblsps. of left over meat mixture in the middle of each crust, leaving about 1/2 " around edges for sealing. (drain meat well!)  Fold crust in half, then take a fork and press the edges together to seal.  Repeat this process with the other pie crust.  Brush with melted butter.  This can be flavored with spices or herbs.  For example if you have a Mexican flavored meat, mix a little bit of cayenne chile powder into the butter.  Brush over the empanadas!  Bake in the oven on a Silpat lined cookie sheet  @ 375 degrees for 20-25 mins.  (You could also fill with a sweet filling, make sure your filling is not full of liquid!)   Serve with any type of dip or enchilada sauce! 

Enjoy!  LUV2U! <3 Monica's Munchies!

P.S. I used left over rotisserie chicken from Costco that I shredded and added diced potatoes, frozen corn and seasonings!
