    "One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see." John 9:1-41
We're officially one of those families. The type with an extremely loud child that has to sit at the back of the church and go for frequent laps just to burn off energy. Remy's cute bird noises have turned into ear piercing screams. Like SCREAMING for joy at the top of her lungs. It's cute when we're at home, but not so much during a long and serious Catholic service. Then when I try to cover her mouth with my hand she licks me. Honestly, Geoff and I can't complain. We actually have to stifle our laughs. We were truly blessed with such an amazing girl. I prayed for her for such a long time, and my prayers were answered. And then some. 
Also, it is the anniversary weekend of her and her cousin's baptism (@abighousefull). What a special time of year. Always ready to help unload the dishwasher, clean dishes or not. More importantly, it's Friday!

fried potatoes and egg wraps: recipe

Fried Potatoes Recipe - 1A few months ago, I gave a recipe for Cheesy Potato Skins. Deliciousness aside, they do create wasted food with the potato filling. We can’t let that happen! So today I’m giving you a tasty dish that not only tastes amazing, but it lets you put that filling to great use. It can be eaten for any meal throughout the day. How wonderful is that?

Fried Potatoes and Egg Wraps:

Ingredients (Potatoes)

Potato filling
Salt
Pepper
Ice
Water
Oil

Ingredients (Egg Wraps)

Makes 2

4 large eggs
2 large tortilla wraps
1/4 cup milk
Green onion
Seasoning salt
Pepper
1 tbsp butter

Fried Potatoes Recipe - 2Steps

1. Slice the leftover potato filling. Then place in a large bowl with salted ice water. Soak for 15 minutes.

2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil, coating the skillet. Place the potato slices onto skillet. Add salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until browned. Then turn the heat to low.

3. Crack eggs into glass bowl. Add milk, sliced green onion, seasoning salt, and pepper. Whisk until mixed.

4. Heat skillet over medium heat. Add butter. Once the butter has melted, add the eggs. Stir gently until eggs are cooked through. Remove eggs from skillet.

5. Take half of the scrambled eggs and place them in the middle of a wrap, forming a line that runs from end to end. Fold one end over (about 1 inch). Grab the side of the wrap that runs parallel to the line of the eggs and fold it over, tucking it under the eggs. Then roll the rest of the wrap tightly. This will leave just one end open! Repeat with the second wrap.

6. Remove the fried potatoes from the skillet, and place them on a place with the wraps. That’s all!
