    • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package lawry's taco seasoning (or homemade)
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or taco blend)
    • 1/4 cup crushed tortilla chips
    • 2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

    Optional Garnishes


    1. Cook ground beef in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat until browned, about 8-10 minutes (drain any excess fat).

    Weeks Five-Nine; 52 Verse Challenge


    This months memory verses for the challenge. :-)
    Week five:  
    Hatred stirs up trouble, but love forgives all wrongs.
    Proverbs 10:12
    Week six: 
    The grass dies and the flowers fall, but the word of our God will live forever.
    Isaiah 40:8
    Week seven:
    Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, is not selfish, and does not get upset with others. Love does not count up wrongs that have been done. Love is not happy with evil but is happy with the truth. Love patiently accepts all things. It always trusts, always hopes, and always remains strong.  
    1 Corinthians 13:4-7
    Week eight: 
    "I told you these things so that you can have peace in me. In this world you will have trouble, but be brave! I have defeated the world."  
    John 16:33
    Week nine: 
    God has chosen you and made you his holy people. He loves you. So always do these things: Show mercy to others, be kind, humble, gentle, and patient. Get along with each other, and forgive each other. If someone does wrong to you, forgive that person because the Lord forgave you. Do all these things; but most important, love each other. Love is what holds you all together in perfect unity.  
    Colosians 3:12-14
