Alright ya’ll, here’s the deal. This is one of the older recipes on this site, but I still make it all of the time. In fact, I made it last night for company, but I changed one thing. I marinated the meat in half of the spices and the peppers and onions in the other half of the spices, separately, in large ziploc bags, for about 2 hours. I did this to save time, because I have a six month old and time is precious. But, seriously, marinating made a huge difference in the flavor of these fajitas, they went from a home run to a grand slam, if you know what I mean. Even if you just have 30 minutes to marinate these, it’s so worth it!
Speaking of company and time being precious, it’s taken me 6 months, but I have finally come to the realization that my house will not be perfect every time we have people over anymore. That kind of pressure sort of defeats the whole purpose of having friends over, doesn’t it?! We want to talk, laugh, and just have fun in a RELAXED environment. Not to mention, I can’t really cook for people, which I love doing, if I have to spend the whole day cleaning in between taking care of a baby.
Of course, I will pick up the toys and (hide them), ahem, put them in the closet, and I will run the swiffer over the floors, because…dog hair. I will even light some candles for ambiance and to make the house smell clean. But, I will not make it look like no one actually lives here, including a baby and large dog. It’s just too much. I would rather cook, play with Maverick, get in a little exercise, and get some work done somewhere in between all of that. I refuse to be stressed every time we have people over, because the truth is I really want people to come here often and feel at home and experience authenticity. That’s why we bought this house, but the enemy will do anything he can to take the joy out of community. He doesn’t want real, honest conversations happening. He wants to keep me distracted throughout the day with busy work, instead of praying over the house with a clear mind and open heart inviting the the Lord in. Jesus knew women would struggle with this, so it’s even in the bible!
He told Martha, who was scurrying around like I tend to do before company, “Martha, dear Martha, you’re fussing far too much and getting yourself worked up over nothing. One thing only is essential, and Mary has chosen it—it’s the main course, and won’t be taken from her.” Luke 10:41-42 (The MSG)
Okay, let’s be honest, I’m a work in progress, I’ll probably still get a little stressed when people come over from time to time, but not every time dogonit! And I refuse get myself into so much of a tizzy that I can’t let some things go, because they really just don’t matter. So, if you come over, you can expect good food, lots of laughing, and an imperfect house, because we live a lot of life here. And that’s all I have to say about that.
Go ahead and make these faijtas for friends, and if laundry is visibly piled up, good, have them over anyway.
