    My mom's side of the family is from Ohio, and a lot still live there.

    Yeah, I have always lived here. I live in the Seattle area.

    That's a great quote! I agree completely. With so many ideologies and religions out there, there is only one that's the truth, but we all think that we have it. Chances are that 99.9% of us don't have the truth, but we all chose to follow what we think is probably closest to what it actually is. I guess we'll all find out when Jesus comes, or after death, or whatever. but Jesus teaches compassion and not judging, so I feel like I don't have any right to do the opposite. Do I disagree with what the Catholic church teaches? Yeah, some of it, but not all of it. Then again, it's the same for Judaism, the Lutheran church, nondenominational churches, Buddhism, atheism, and any other religion out there. Just because I believe differently from them doesn't give me the right to hate them and be prejudiced against them, though, which is where I think religion goes wrong most of the time. I don't know why, though, because Jesus never hated anyone. He just hates the sin. Ah, well.

    Hmm, yeah, if I do have questions I can ask! I've had several Catholic friends, so they've pretty much answered most of the questions I have. Yeah, I'm not about getting people worked up if I can help it--I just know that what my church teaches is a very fine line between offensive and hurtful, and some people take things very... I don't know what to call it. But they form grudges easily and can be extremely hurtful to Catholics, and have very awful opinions of them. I think Catholics, like any group of people, have lovely people and not-so-lovely people, but following God HIS way is the only thing we should really be concerned about, and if that's our focus, there's no need to judge. Jesus is all about the non-judging.

    Hey, Fiona, which blog was that? I had one that I used for a couple years (ashthedreamer.blogspot.com), but then I switched to the other when I was considering starting a blog to sort of promote doing this dream I've had (it totally flopped, though, and now I pretty much don't blog). We can talk about my religion if you like. I don't really like talking about the Adventist view on Catholicism, just because I feel like it tends to start being really offensive to the Catholic side, but if you want to know, I can tell you. I think I react differently to it; I have Catholic friends, so it's not like I dislike them or am trying to put them down.

    That's cool! Eastern or western Washington?

    I usually sprinkle some cheddar over the top as well. Also sometimes we add some corn starch so that it thickens up a little bit. Very tasty, very good for leftovers too! This got me through a rough winter! Actually, my crock pot became my new spouse. Haha. Let me know if you try it and if you have any recipes to share! My family eats pretty much anything and everything.

    Hi caritas! One of my favorites, and I believe this is relatively low on carbs, is enchilada stew in the crock pot. It's pretty fast (toss it in 'n' leave it) and oh so tasty!

    In your crock pot, combine two boxes of chicken broth, two cans of green enchilada sauce, a 4oz can of green chiles, a cup of water, 2 tsp of cumin, and a little chile powder, garlic powder, onion powder. Then you drop in two pounds of chicken and leave it for six hours.

    After six hours, shred the chicken with a fork (it should be so very tender) and drop it back into the crock pot. Add one cup of corn (optional if you are avoiding carbs) and a block of cream cheese. I would cut the cream cheese up first so that the smaller pieces melt better. Leave it in for another half hour, and then serve!
