The Little Issues Publication #398 – Life, laughter, and many nice meals!

Welcome to the weekend, my mates! Can I simply begin by saying “YAY for January”? I really like the recent begin that the brand new yr brings us. I’m not one for setting particular targets or resolutions in January, however I do love the recent clear starting after the vacations.

The primary few months of 2024 are jam-packed for us and I’m trying ahead to all of it – whereas additionally soaking in each calm second at dwelling in between instances. I’m headed to NM subsequent week for my annual sister journey and counting down the times till I can hug my sisters once more.

ON THE BLOGS THIS WEEK:  Some meals are so fundamental, so extremely easy, that it may be troublesome to explain their awesomeness. That’s how I really feel about cottage cheese with fruit. Two substances. (Positive, you may gown it up a bit, if you happen to like, however at its coronary heart, simply 2 substances.) Whether or not that is my breakfast, a day snack, or a candy chunk after dinner, I eat this mixture in some unspecified time in the future almost each single day.

Savory chunks of hen mingle with candy grapes, crunchy walnuts, and crisp apples on this straightforward Chicken Waldorf Salad. It is a lunch you’ll placed on repeat!

Tender chunks of ham meld with earthy inexperienced beans and hearty potatoes on this tremendous easy meal of Crockpot Ham, Green Beans, and Potatoes. After I let you know that this was an surprising success, I can’t emphasize that sufficient. That is hearty consolation meals that isn’t heavy with cheese or oils. It’s so simple as may be and my entire household gave it two thumbs up.

Fluffy potatoes with crisp, roasted edges are seasoned to perfection with simply rosemary, salt, and pepper in these Rosemary Roasted Potatoes. My entire household begins to seize these proper off the pan after they come out of the oven.

Brown sugar is the star of the present on this home made Brown Sugar Icing with notes of caramel and molasses mingling on this pourable, dreamy frosting.

The unforgettable tang of wealthy, buttermilk cake is topped with a layer of candy caramel frosting on this Buttermilk Cake topped with that impossible to resist icing.

Spicy Chocolate Ice Cream is chilly, creamy chocolate with a touch of spicy warmth from chili and cinnamon. This ice cream warms your mouth at the same time as you’re chilled from the ice cream. The mix of warmth with the chilly is improbable.

What I’m CRAVING: I’ve gone from craving all of the salads final week to craving all of the pancakes at this time! (Do you know now we have 24 pancake recipes here? and 20 pancake recipes over here?) My household actually loves pancakes!) My boys and I are going to attempt a few new recipes this morning too!

My FAVORITE THING this week is my very basic to-do-list style, undated planner. I’ve informed you about it earlier than, however it’s value mentioning once more as I simply opened up a brand new one this week. I switched to this model of planner a few years in the past and it’s been an incredible match for me. It really works effectively as my guidelines for every day with the additional benefit of getting time slots on the facet for the times once I’m extra scheduled. 

What I’m READING: Atomic Habits by James Clear. I’ve in all probability learn this guide at the very least 3-4 instances now and referred again to it extra instances than I do know. I can’t advocate it extremely sufficient. Teenagers, younger adults, enterprise house owners, at-home mother and father, retirees – there’s recommendation right here that would profit anybody and everybody, at any stage of life. I personal it on Kindle, in paper, and as an audiobook. It’s a wonderful refresher and reminder of the place I would like my priorities to be.

What I’m LISTENING to: Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.Okay. Rowling. Described as “A group of well-loved tales for witches and wizards of all ages, The Tales of Beedle the Bard are the wizarding world’s Grimm’s Fairytales.” It is a enjoyable, quick learn for any Harry Potter fan. For those who occur to get pleasure from audiobooks and are additionally a little bit of a Harry Potter nerd, the 90-minute narration is improbable. Jude Legislation reads Dumbledore’s half and I loved it. 

Give because of the Lord, for he’s good; his love endures perpetually.” Psalm 107:1-2 NIV

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