The Little Issues E-newsletter #361 – Life, laughter, and plenty of nice meals!

Welcome to the weekend, my mates! It’s been a protracted (and scrumptious!) week of cooking and photographing new recipes to share with you. In consequence, our fridge is packed stuffed with superior leftovers and I’ve no plans in any respect to prepare dinner for not less than the following day or two. 

There are an entire lot of recent ice cream recipes within the works too and which means our freezer is jam-packed too. (Tough life, proper?) I’ve been sharing a brand new ice cream recipe each Friday for a few months now and I don’t see that altering anytime quickly. Ice cream is simply plain enjoyable to make.

ON THE BLOGS this week:  Kick off the weekend with a stack of fluffy strawberry banana pancakes. They’re nice all by themselves, snacked on out of hand, however they get even higher with a little bit of butter and syrup on high.

This easy mushroom spaghetti sauce trumps something you should purchase in jars or cans on the grocery retailer. After only a few minutes of hands-on effort, you’ll be free to stroll away whereas this sauce simmers by itself, making your home scent unbelievable within the course of.

The spaghetti sauce works nicely as a vegetarian or vegan meal when made with out floor beef. For a low-carb variation, or just because it’s scrumptious this fashion too, scoop the sauce over a bowl of roasted broccoli or sauteed cabbage ribbons.

After I first noticed a recipe for microwave lemon curd, I’ll admit that I used to be skeptical. I am keen on lemon curd, however I’m such a slacker about making it. Having tried this methodology now, I’ll by no means make lemon curd on the range once more. 

Fluffy, creamy, candy and tangy lemon dip served with recent berries, graham crackers, or shortbread cookies is a lightweight summery dessert that’s excellent for sharing with mates.

Shrimp and sausage fried rice has formally been added to the record of our favourite dinners. This straightforward recipe is a “two thumbs up,” kid-approved, hearty-as-can-be skillet meal; excellent for a fast and simple weeknight dinner! 

With a vivid berry taste, a surprising purple shade, and a easy velvety texture, do-it-yourself strawberry sauce beats something you should purchase on the retailer.

Strawberry cheesecake ice cream is a candy and tangy mixture of easy, creamy cheesecake ice cream and recent strawberry swirls.

Let’s get this out of the way in which earlier than we dive into this mind-boggling cauliflower “potato” salad. This isn’t a “wholesome” try and trick your mind into liking this low-carb potato salad recipe. This can be a creamy, flavor-filled cauliflower salad that proudly stands by itself. In the event you like cauliflower in any respect, you’ll doubtless fall in love with this summer time facet dish.

What I’m CRAVING: These spicy buttermilk fried hen sandwiches caught my eye yesterday and I’ve been craving them ever since. They give the impression of being so good!

My FAVORITE THING this week is my Tide pen. I splattered some purple sauce throughout a favourite white high just a few days in the past–and instantly questioned my sanity for carrying that white high anyplace close to the kitchen. Fortunately, I had one among these pens in my bag and was capable of dab on the spots earlier than tossing the shirt within the soiled laundry that evening. After I washed the shirt just a few days later? Zero stains.

I’m conscious that Tide pens aren’t earth-shattering information, however generally it truly is the little issues that make my days that a lot better.

What I’m WATCHING: Useless Poets Society. My boys and I watched this final weekend. Robin Williams, Ethan Hawke, and Robert Sean Leonard made this traditional every little thing it’s and it sparked numerous dialog for us after watching the film. At any time when I watch a film with Robin Williams, it units me off on a spiral of watching all of his films. He introduced a lot pleasure to so many individuals.

“So, whether or not you eat or drink, or no matter you do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31 ESV

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