The Little Issues E-newsletter #353 – Life, laughter, and plenty of nice meals!

Welcome to the weekend, my mates! Good morning, good morning, good morning!! The climate this week has been superb with one other 70 diploma day right here in Ohio. I understand it’s a false trace of spring, however I’m basking in it whereas I can. 

It gained’t be practically so heat at this time, however there’s no rain within the forecast, so I’m hoping to get out for an extended stroll or hike. Native mates, the place are your favourite walks and simple hikes within the Columbus space?

ON THE BLOG this week: Recent strawberries tucked into gentle and fluffy pancakes create the loveliest Strawberry Pancakes you possibly can think about. In the event you occur to have some berries available, you will have the potential for a breakfast that’s sure to make you grin at this time.

Tender hen and candy corn are mixed in a creamy hen corn soup with simply sufficient warmth to heat your mouth with out setting it on fireplace.

Steaming sizzling biscuits topped with melted butter have confirmed irresistible to each member of my household. I’ve made this straightforward drop biscuit recipe no less than half a dozen instances over the previous few months. It simply doesn’t get previous.

Crispy, toasty, and ever so barely tacky, I could make a whole meal out of this garlic parmesan roasted broccoli.

Saucy BBQ pork tucked into melted cheese in a buttery crisp tortilla? That’s one thing I can’t probably resist. This pulled pork quesadilla is a fast and simple strategy to get a hearty meal on the desk, even on the busiest of weeknights.

Crisp, tart, barely candy, and all the time aromatic, the basic mojito is a cocktail that I by no means get uninterested in sipping.

Chew-size potatoes and Brussels sprouts are roasted with spicy sausage and loads of cheese to create an irresistible dinner.

Sticky Asian Meatballs are candy and somewhat bit spicy. I sometimes serve these meatballs over rice, with some steamed or roasted greens on the aspect. Nevertheless, they work nice as a celebration appetizer too.

Have you ever tried the Candy Kale Salad at Costco? It begins with shredded kale, thinly sliced Brussels sprouts, and a beneficiant handful of broccoli matchsticks. The greens are topped with candy cranberries and salty pepitas earlier than being tossed in a tangy candy poppyseed dressing. The awesomeness of the salad can’t be overstated and now you can also make it at house!

What I’m CRAVING: Have you ever tried Peanut Butter Broccoli? (I used to be such a skeptic and even harassed my good friend Lynne concerning the tremendous weird-sounding mixture!) I’ll fortunately eat these phrases now. That is so dang good! Roasted broccoli + peanut butter = a HUGE win with my entire household. I’ll be making it once more this weekend.

My FAVORITE THING this week is that this enameled forged iron skillet. It’s the right measurement for thus many recipes! I’ve used it no less than six instances this week and cherished it extra each time. It’s oven secure, I really like the lid that makes it a lined casserole-style pan, and it cleans like a dream.

What I’m LISTENING to: Massive Dangerous Voodoo Daddy. In the event you aren’t already aware of them (though I’m assuming most of you already love them as a lot as we do) Massive Dangerous Voodoo Daddy is a up to date swing revival band. Their music is most frequently described as pumped-up swing or dance flooring jazz, and so far as I’m involved it’s pure enjoyable.

“Above all, love one another deeply, as a result of love covers over a large number of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8 NIV
