As a lot as I take pleasure in journey, it’s nice to be residence once more. I’m trying ahead to a enjoyable weekend with all of my boys.
ON THE BLOG this week: Have you ever tried Scorching Buttered Rum? A heat mug of sizzling buttered rum brings a few full physique coziness that looks like you might be being wrapped in a thick heat blanket. (You’ll be able to make a non-alcoholic sizzling buttered “rum” as properly!)

This skillet is a pleasant mixture of candy potatoes, contemporary corn, asparagus, and bacon with a drizzle of balsamic. It was one thing surprising that I pulled collectively for a dinner facet dish a number of years in the past, utilizing odds and ends from the fridge. What resulted was a skillet stuffed with magic. I do know that appears like I’m exaggerating however I promise you I’m not. This dish is so good it qualifies as an organization coming over meal.

Seems I exploit these little coasters on a regular basis in a bunch of various methods. Humid day? They’re an amazing fundamental coaster to soak up moisture from an iced tea. Different occasions, I set a number of of them on the desk and so they’ll maintain a sizzling roasting pan properly. At lower than a greenback every, they’ve been a helpful discount discover.
What I’m WATCHING: a pal despatched me this youtube video hyperlink and I’m right here for all of it. This can be a Caroline Winkler video referred to as “You’re doing residence group WRONG.” Each single factor within the video is approachable and in no way a gross sales pitch for issues to purchase. She provides so many nice on daily basis suggestions you can instantly do in your personal residence.

The creator by no means contradicts scripture and in reality, factors the reader again to studying the Bible for the unique story. This e-book is wealthy with historic element and it brings to life the tradition and society of these occasions.
