Proverbs 12:4

A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

Steak Syllabus

Steak Syllabus - A break down of beef cuts

I know retailers label the cuts in the case, but those labels are tiny, and sometimes you need to grab and go. (you know, screaming toddler and all) Without a doubt, there’s something so delicious about a flavorful, juicy steak, kissed by fire and smoke on the outside, and perfectly pink in the middle.

Below you will find a quick and dirty breakdown of different cuts of steak, and recommended cooking styles.

1 Corinthians 7: 3-4

3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.

Smexy Walkman Slider Phone

So yea; it’s uber smexy; and refurbished; so cheap. And Ry is gonna get the BlackJackII phone; so he can use it when he deploys this fall. Our contract is finally up; so we get to have local numbers; hopefully AT&T won’t ask for a deposit again; but you never know. We are both really excited as our current cell phones are both in need of either TLC or a headstone. (more…)

Proverbs 5:18-19

18 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
19 Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.

Roast Roster

Roast Roster - a rundown of roasts and some of their aliases

Years ago, while Ry and I were dating and newlyweds, I worked in a supermarket back in the ‘Butcher Block.’ That means I sold the cuts of steak, roast, fresh fish, ground beef, and other seafood that are in those great big glass cases. Going into the job, I didn’t know a lot. But when I left, I had gained quite a bit of knowledge, and it has transferred into better meals for myself and my family. 

Here’s a rundown of some basic roasts and some of their aliases, going from a steer’s front to back.


Song of Solomon 2:8-13

8 The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.
9 My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice.
10 My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;
13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.

Matthew 19:4-6

4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that fhe which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, gFor this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and hthey twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

What I won’t be blogging…

The internet can be a super scary place so there are a few things that you will not be seeing on this blog; especially since we are a military family and personal security is very important!

Persec: A military acronym. Short for PERsonal SECurity. Used in conjuction with Operational Security (OPSEC) to protect the flow of information to undesirable or non-essential parties. Often personal information about a person/soldier/civilian that, if leaked or passed on to the wrong party, could result in either harm, defamation, or potentially even death to said person.
