Welcome to the weekend, my mates! It was a continuous week of cooking and photographing new recipes over right here and I’m prepared for a weekend with my toes up on the sofa. Rebecca and Lynne have been right here working with me and we ate some critically scrumptious meals all week lengthy. I’m wanting ahead to sharing all of it with you!
ON THE BLOG this week: Tender chunks of rooster and greens are simmered collectively beneath a buttery, flaky biscuit topping to make this chicken pot pie casserole. I made it a couple of weeks in the past and it was such a success, it’s already been made 3 times since then.
Once you pull this cheesy and delicious ham potato broccoli casserole scorching and steaming from the oven everybody can be clamoring for a chew.
This Strawberry Blueberry Banana Smoothie brings summertime straight to your glass – even in the midst of winter. Candy and creamy, this good-for-you smoothie is a straightforward approach to begin your day or refuel within the afternoon.
Pepperoni pizza dip is the proper celebration appetizer. I imply, who doesn’t love a piping hot, melting cheese dip full of pepperoni?
Roasted vegetables dipped in Bang Bang Sauce, dare I say it, are higher than greens with selfmade ranch dip. I didn’t suppose that was doable but it surely IS! (And sure, this homemade ranch actually is unimaginable.)
After consuming parmesan-roasted carrots you’ll not wish to make them every other approach. Chunk-sized and toasty good, you’ll be able to’t eat only one!
Fluffy, buttery, sweet pancakes filled with bursting juicy berries are doable with minimal effort. Sufficient pancakes for the entire household might be cooked on a single sheet pan!
What I’m CRAVING: Have you ever ever had a Profiterole?? They’re homemade cream puffs that have been split, filled, with ice cream, and topped with hot fudge or chocolate or caramel sauce. So mainly we’re speaking about an ice cream-filled scorching fudge cream puff. Completely, positively, FANTASTIC. That is an ice cream lover’s dream come true, my mates. I want them in my life once more stat.
My FAVORITE THINGS this week are these hydro seal band-aids. In case you’ve ever had a blister in your heel or should you steadily take care of them, these band-aids are a whole and complete game-changer. Jaw-droppingly efficient and completely priceless for a way properly they work. Full ache reduction actually from the second you apply them. I had no thought these existed till now, and I can’t think about not having them available ever once more.
What I’m WATCHING: Brain on Fire. I learn the book a couple of months in the past and talked about it at size. So, naturally, I instantly needed to watch the film once I noticed it pop up on Netflix. The film is superb and stays very true to the e book and Susannah’s story.
My evaluation of the e book:
That is the true story of a 24-year-old girl who awakened strapped to the mattress in a hospital room, unable to regulate her actions and even communicate, with no reminiscence of how she’d gotten there. She was labeled violent and psychotic and at one level even had a 24/7 guard assigned to her earlier than her sickness progressed to catatonia. Her hospital information and her father’s journal inform the story of a complete month spent within the hospital – a keep of which she has no recollection.
This e book chronicles the lightning-fast path of her sickness (a literal descent into insanity) and the wonderful last-minute prognosis and intervention of 1 physician who saved her life – whereas each different physician was able to commit her to a psychiatric ward and stroll away. Her sickness is now regarded as the reason for many “demonic possessions” all through historical past. This was an enchanting take a look at an autoimmune illness I had by no means heard of prior to now, an sickness that destroys the blood mind barrier and successfully units the mind on hearth.
“The steadfast love of the Lord by no means ceases; his mercies by no means come to an finish. They’re new each morning; nice is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 ESV
Wishing you a stunning week stuffed with little issues that make you smile!
