Welcome to the weekend, my mates! The storms in Ohio have been virtually continuous this week, however there are many indicators that spring is on the best way. It’s trying lovely and inexperienced throughout us lately. (Technically, it’s inexperienced in every single place that isn’t at present muddy or flooded, however I’m on the lookout for the blessing in all of the rain this week.)

If you happen to’ve by no means lived someplace with out altering seasons, the marvel of all of it is probably going not one thing you discover. However having lived most of my life within the Southwest, I don’t take the totally different seasons as a right. I like each a lot (sure, even mud season) and I’m trying ahead to the crisp mornings, hotter days, and delightful flowers that spring at all times brings.

ON THE BLOGS THIS WEEK:  Skip the store-bought spice mixes and stir collectively a batch of selfmade Cajun seasoning!

Most of your favourite Cajun-style recipes probably name for some model of a Cajun seasoning combine.

Steak bites are a weeknight mainstay of our meal-planning rotation. And these Cajun Steak Bites have simply sufficient kick to please each my spice lovers and fewer adventurous eaters.

Tender hen, salsa, inexperienced chile, and black beans are simmered collectively within the crock-pot after which scooped into heat tortillas to create the best, tastiest, salsa hen tacos and burritos. Salsa Hen can also be tasty when served over rice, wrapped in tortillas, or tossed right into a salad.

Dive into this timeless mixture of flavors with savory hen, gooey mozzarella, and marinara sauce, nestled in tender-crisp squash, and topped with toasted bread crumbs. Hen Parmesan Zucchini Boats are a giant hit!

Creamy, buttery, Tacky Mashed Potatoes are what meals goals are manufactured from. I recommend making additional, to keep away from arguments over who will get seconds.

My FAVORITE THING this week is that this illuminating nail concealer. I’m not a lot of a nail polish or manicure woman at this level, however this polish glides on easy as glass with no traces or points in any respect. It’s the best polish I’ve ever used and I like how easy it’s.

What I’m WATCHING: Divergent. This film is predicated on the primary e-book within the Divergent collection and we loved it. I learn the books years in the past when my boys have been studying them and came across the flicks the opposite day with my youngest. We watched all three of them whereas he was off faculty this week. 

The Divergent books are YA sci-fi journey novels set in a post-apocalyptic dystopian Chicago. They’re a enjoyable learn and a enjoyable watch as effectively.

What I’m READING: The Final Graduate: Guide 2 of The Scholomance by Naomi Novik. Would you imagine that the second e-book within the trilogy was even higher than the primary? I don’t assume I’ve ever mentioned that earlier than, as the center books in most collection are sometimes placeholders, leaving an excessive amount of undone and unanswered.

The collection is YA sci-fi fantasy and I’ve loved it to this point. This e-book was a two-night binge-read for me and I’m trying ahead to studying the final e-book as quickly because it’s out there.

“Rejoice within the Lord at all times. I’ll say it once more: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is close to.” Philippians 4:4-5 NIV
