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!

Sliders!! Hahahah!

Sliders are so fun!
Everyone builds there own!  Put out plenty of fun topping, remembering to be frugal, have good quality ingredients, yet don't go over board with the amount cuz they are small!

The Rolls:  Trader Joes Mini Hamburger Buns or Sweet Hawaiin Dinner Rolls

The Meat:  I stole my sister Kathy's idea of mixing healthy brand of ground turkey and ground beef. 50/50
 (Trader Joes, Sprouts or Whole Foods brands are great choices! )

To the meat I added the following:
Freshly Ground Sea Salt and Pepper
Onion Powder 
Garlic and Natural Sea Salt
Worchester Sauce
Pico de Gallo spice
Mix gently, and please do not add egg/bread crumbs/fillers, because 
as my Jeff says, it's a hamburger, not meat loaf! hahah! 

Make meatball size balls, (don't over work so meat remains tender) 
 flatten and lightly impress a thumb print in the middle to keep it from bubbling up!
(that's a Bobby Flay tip!!)

Barbacue gentley, **but thoroughly to avoid salmonella that can be found in raw meats**
just until the pink is gone, that way they will still be tender! 

 (So you find it's still a little pink..nuke it for 30 sec intervals!)

Load up burgers with your favorite toppings,

 I had Smoked Gouda Cheese on one, Goat Cheese on the other  
I topped another one off with homemade coleslaw! (RJ's idea!)
Plan for most people to eat 2-3!

Hope you enjoy!
