Welcome to the weekend, my friend! Good morning, good morning, good morning! ! The weather has been great this week, with another 70-degree day here in Ohio. I know it’s the wrong sign of spring, but I’m sunbathing as much as I can.
It’s not going to be that warm today, but the forecast is for no rain, so I’d like to go for a walk or hike. Local friends, what are your favorite walks and easy hikes in the Columbus area?
on the blog This week: Fresh strawberries wrapped in fluffy and light pancakes. The most beautiful strawberry pancakes you can imagineIf you happen to have berries on hand, there’s a breakfast potential that’s sure to make you smile today.
A creamy chicken corn soup made with tender chicken and sweet corn that will warm your mouth without the need for heat.
Steaming biscuits topped with melted butter have proven to be a hit with all members of my family. I was. It just doesn’t get old.
Crispy, toasty and just a touch of cheese, you can make a whole meal This Garlic Parmesan Roasted Broccoli.
A tortilla with saucy BBQ pork sandwiched between melty cheese and crispy butter? That’s something I just can’t resist. This pulled pork quesadilla is a quick and easy way to get a hearty meal at the table, even on the busiest of weeknights.
Refreshing, sour, slightly sweet, and always savory, the classic mojito is a cocktail you never get tired of.
An irresistible dinner of bite-sized potatoes and Brussels sprouts roasted with spicy sausage and plenty of cheese.
sticky asian meatballs Sweet and a little spicy. I usually serve these meatballs over rice with steamed or roasted vegetables on the side.
Have you ever tried Costco’s sweet kale salad? Start with shredded kale, thinly sliced Brussels sprouts and a generous handful of broccoli matchsticks. The greens are topped with sweet cranberries and salty pepitas, then tossed with a tangy sweet poppy seed dressing. I can’t say enough good things about the salad. can now be made at home!
What I crave: I tried peanut butter broccoli(I’m very skeptical and even harassed my friend Lynn about a combination that sounded so weird!) I happily eat those words now. Roasted broccoli + peanut butter = a hit for the whole family. I will make it again this weekend.
My Favorites this week Enameled Cast Iron Frying PanThe perfect size for many recipes. He’s used it at least six times this week and loved it each time. Oven washable. I love the lid that makes it a casserole style pot with a cover and cleans like a dream.
What I’m listening to: big bad voodoo daddyIn case you’re still unfamiliar with them (and I’m sure most of you love them as much as we do), Big Bad Voodoo Daddy are a modern swing revival band. Their music is most often described as thumping swing and dancefloor jazz, and as far as I’m concerned, it’s pure fun.
“Above all, love one another deeply, for love covers a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8 NIV
I wish you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
