Perry Plummets, Cain Surges in Positive Intensity

Hey guys! Check out this new Gallup Poll, on the Presidential Race:

Mexican Jambalaya Recipe

A few days ago, I was trying to avoid going to the grocery store, so I came up with this yummy recipe with what I had on hand in my pantry. It came out soooo good, that I decided I had to share it. Hope that you enjoy it =)

Mexican Jambalaya

4 cups of cooked rice (approx.)
Drizzle of Olive Oil
Cajun Seasoning (I use Tony Chachere's)
1 lb of Chicken Tenderloins (boneless, skinless), cut into bite size pieces
Chef Paul Prudhomme Sun-Dried Tomato Marinade (or something similar)
1 lb Frozen Onion Mix (onions, bell peppers, etc.)
1 4 oz can Diced Green Chilis
1 15oz can of Black Beans
1 10 oz can Red Enchilada Sauce, mild or hot ( I used Casa Fiesta)
1 8 oz Can Tomato Sauce

The first I did was marinate the Chicken Tenderloins in the Chef Paul Prudhomme Sun-Dried Tomato Marinade, for about 30 minutes (which, is my all time favorite marinade, by the way), and cooked my rice.

Then, over the stove in a large saucepan, season the Onion Mix with Cajun seasoning, and add a drizzle of olive oil, saute' for approx 5-10 minutes or until the onions are transparent.

Add and cook the Chicken until cooked through. Next, add the can of Diced Green Chilis & Black Beans (do not drain), and stir & cook for about 2-3 minutes. Then add the can of Enchilada Sauce & Tomato Sauce.

Let simmer uncovered for about 5-10 minutes, occasionally stirring. This is a good time to taste your sauce. It should already be a bit spicy from the Enchilada Sauce, but not would be the time for you to season to taste.

Now you can add your cooked rice and stir until everything is mixed together well. Cover your pot and turn off
heat. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, then serve, eat, and enjoy!!!

Prayer Warriors Needed!!!!

Please pray for our friends, The Renken's and their son Will. On Saturday, September 24th, Will fell off a 2nd story ledge onto a foyer floor and cracked his scull. He's been in ICU ever since, with brain swelling & bruising. 

I have been following all the updates on a website they set up, through Caring Bridge. The update from this morning was not encouraging. They can use all the prayer that they can get. Please pray for peace for the entire family & complete healing for Will.

God is an awesome & mighty God. We know that all things work together for good, for those who love the Lord, and that there is awesome power in prayer!!!! 

If you would like, you can follow all the updates here:

I've posted the latest entry from today below:

"Good morning friends and pray warriors!

Please continue to pray for Will.  After talking to the doctor's this morning it looks as though Will doesn't want to play by the rules.  (Marcy said she wasn't so surprised by that.)  I guess his body has figured out all the meds that's he's been getting and now the meds are just not as effective.  All the doctors are meeting and trying to figure out the next "best" steps.  They are considering a bone flap surgery (which will allow the brain to 'breath' more). 

Marcy was pretty upset this morning.  (Understandably so).  The doctor did tell her that because of all the brusing on the front of his brain that he'd be lying if he promised that Will would be perfectly "normal" again.  

All - I know we are storming Heaven for Will right now but I am begging ya'll to pray for Marcy and Tom.  Please pray for them to have strength to walk through this fire.  All your letters and emails and notes have meant the world to them.  Please keep writing.  

Nothing can separate this family from the love of God and they need US to keep reminding them of that."
