The Little Issues E-newsletter #413 – Life, laughter, and many nice meals!


Welcome to the weekend, my mates! As I sit right here sipping espresso and writing at the moment’s publication, my youngest son is making a pot of blueberries and cream oatmeal for our breakfast – and I’m considering how superior it’s to have older children now. Youthful years are their very own sort of enjoyable, however center college, highschool, and school age children? I simply find it irresistible a lot.

As we speak’s plan is a complete lot of residence group and cleansing out closets, a visit to drop off donations on the thrift retailer (thrills a minute right here for positive), possibly a automotive wash, and hopefully a motorbike experience too. There’s one thing particularly peaceable in figuring out I don’t should be anyplace particular or accomplish something particular this weekend. I’m wishing you a lot of the identical, or as lively and busy a weekend as your coronary heart needs.

ON THE BLOGS THIS WEEK:  What’s to not love a few totally loaded ranch potato salad crammed with bits of bacon and chunks of egg? This has been my children’ favourite potato salad for over 10 years now. This can be a tremendous easy-to-make potato salad with bacon, eggs, and ranch dressing and it’s been an enormous hit with everybody who tries it.

Recent corn, bell peppers, jalapenos, cilantro, and onion are tossed with lime and a sprinkling of spices to create this Southwest Corn Salad. You’ve possible heard it stated earlier than that one thing is “greater than the sum of its elements.” Effectively, this salad, it’s completely greater than the sum of its elements.

This Zucchini Stir Fry with Hen is a straightforward dinner that delivers a complete lot of nice taste. Served by itself or over rice or noodles, it is a meal that all the time satisfies.

Transfer over chocolate, there’s a brand new participant within the flavored milk lineup. Recent blueberries are a complete sport changer. Candy and tangy, they bring about such a refreshing style to every sip of this Blueberry Milk.

Juicy blueberries and hearty oats come along with the right mix of candy and tangy in these chewy Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies.

Completely chewy, fudgy brownies, topped with fudge frosting and a sprinkling of candies, these Cosmic Brownies are higher than the unique! Only a warning right here, it seems that these brownies are my kryptonite. I’ve to pressure myself to present away half the pan each time I make them as a result of I can’t steer clear of them in the event that they’re in the home.

And sure, I DID make these brownies simply so I may make this Cosmic Brownie Ice Cream. Freshly churned chocolate ice cream is layered with bite-size chunks of Cosmic Brownies and scattered with miniature M&M candies to create it.

What I’m CRAVING: Alllll the contemporary berries! I’ll be making this berry pecan salad tomorrow. And I may additionally have to make my pal Holly’s Tres Leches Cake topped with all of the berries doable. (Doesn’t that sound improbable?!)

What I’m LISTENING to: Kacey Musgraves’ new album Deeper Effectively. My oldest son is an eclectic music lover and there aren’t many artists he doesn’t wish to see in live performance. When he talked about that Kacey Musgraves was going to be in Columbus this fall, we instantly purchased tickets to go hear her. And naturally, I began streaming her new album. It’s a great one!

What I’m READING: The Christmas Keys collection by Stephanie Taylor. There are 9 brief books on this collection and so they’re all enjoyable reads. Many of the characters are gratifying (although admittedly a few them induce eye rolls) and I flew by the whole collection in a few weeks. They’re all included with Kindle Limitless and in the event you’re in search of humorous, clear, straightforward reads these match the invoice.

That stated, the primary few books are probably the most superficial. (I wasn’t the largest fan of them, however they have been nonetheless amusing.) Thankfully, the characters and storyline developed properly over time, and by the 4th or fifth e book, I used to be having fun with the collection and curious to see how it will all finish.

“A very good title is extra fascinating than nice riches; to be esteemed is best than silver or gold.” Proverbs 22:1 NIV

Wishing you a stunning week filled with little issues that make you smile!
