11 Teach me your way, LORD, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.

I am so thankful today for the freedoms I enjoy living in the United States.  Freedom to read what I want, give my opinion, share my religion without oppression.

Cory shared:   Three things I am thankful for:
1) My family
2) Our health
3) Our jobs, food, cars, house, neighborhood, friends, warm showers, hot coffee & breakfast burritos!

These cute little savory puffs made a big appearance at our dinner table along with our recent baked Macaroni and Cheese!  Mom and I have been making cream puffs for a long time.  But savory puffs?  I came across this recipe in The Taste of Home cookbook that was a recent gift from my Florida girlfriends, Kathy and Phyllis.  Wow, we love these.  An endless ingredient list can be changed up depending on what they are served with.  Garlic, basil, Parmesan, onion, rosemary, thyme, oregano, and the list goes on.  We ate them warm out of the oven and boy oh boy are they good!  Very easy to make also!
