God Made Us a Family

We need one another

                   We love one another

                  We forgive one another

                  We work together

                  We play together

                 We worship together

                 Together we use God's Word

                 Together we grow in Christ

                Together we love all men

                Together we serve our God

                Together we hope for heaven

                These are our hopes and ideals

                 Help us to attain them, O God

                Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Feeding the Locusts

When my four dearest friends and our cumulative 24 children get together for tea
or a workday or a family “get-together”, we lovingly refer to our children as
“the locusts.”
It seems that no matter how much food we bring,
they manage to devour all of it before the end of the day.
I am always on the lookout for economical and yummy ways to feed a crowd,
and I am always delighted to share my findings.
This first one is from Nancy, she has made it with elk roast, or hamburger; I have used elk, deer and beef.
I prefer it done with roasts, but if you don’t have access to our economical elk and deer, hamburger is quite tasty too!!
McAninch Meat Filling

6 lbs. meat
I bunch celery
1 green pepper
3 medium onions
1 Tbsp. salt
1 tsp pepper
1 c. catsup
3 Tbsp bbq sauce
1 Tbsp Worchester
1 ½ c water
1 tsp chili powder

Cook all ingredients in a slow cooker, electric roaster, crock-pot, or larger covered dish at 325 degrees for 8 or more hours. Serve on hamburger buns. This smells incredible and tastes…
