The Little Issues Publication #405 – Life, laughter, and plenty of nice meals!


Welcome to the weekend, my buddies! After every week of attractive sunshine-filled climate within the 40s, 50s, and 60s, we awakened this morning in a recent winter wonderland. Ohio by no means fails to shock me. As I write this, I’m watching the snow because it continues to fall outdoors. I’ll be headed to the fitness center in a few hours, however proper now, I’m grateful for a sluggish begin to the day and the time to take pleasure in my sizzling espresso.

ON THE BLOGS THIS WEEK: The sizzle of completely seasoned greens is snugly underneath wraps with oodles of gooey cheese on this golden, crispy Fajita Quesadilla.

Tart lime juice and peppery cilantro infuse the lengthy, fluffy grains of rice with fabulous taste on this easy Oven Baked Rice.

Aromatic and filling, when Hamburger Cabbage Soup is simmering on the range, anybody wandering via the kitchen goes to smile.

The crisp crunch of cabbage is elevated with a tangy dressing on this Spicy Pickled Cabbage. With simply the correct quantity of warmth, every chunk may have you coming again for extra.

Smoothie Ice Cream is what occurs when strawberries, blueberries, and bananas are blended right into a frozen concoction so thick you may eat it with a spoon.

Skip the standard fried donuts and make these Apple Cider Muffins at dwelling. With a sugary coating paying homage to their namesake, these muffins provide a pleasant twist on a beloved traditional.

Tender apples topped with buttery brown sugar streusel work collectively completely when making an Apple Crisp without Oats. Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, your complete household was scraping their bowls clear and asking if there was any extra of the crisp.

What I’m CRAVING: I’m going to make an enormous pot of this Baked Potato Soup right this moment and serve it with a loaf of my pal Lynne’s Italian bread. (If you happen to haven’t but tried this bread, put it in your record to make quickly, my buddies. It’s perfection!)

My FAVORITE THING this week is that this sea salt body cream. I’ve been utilizing it for over a yr and I nonetheless adore it. It’s thick, creamy, and doesn’t depart your pores and skin greasy in any respect. I really like the gentle scent and the way extremely moisturizing it’s. I first tried this lotion as a pattern and cherished it a lot, I ordered the full-size product virtually instantly.

Only a heads up that the worth fluctuates quite a bit on Amazon, so look ahead to gross sales, or in case you go to the model’s web site you may normally catch it on sale. Proper now it’s a part of a “spend $61, earn $61, plus free transport” deal. Making it a stock-up worth in case you adore it and successfully half off – a worth I can extra simply abdomen.

What I’m WATCHING: Everything Everywhere All At Once. My oldest son and I deliberate to see this film within the theater and it simply by no means labored out. We lastly watched it this week and I’ve to confess it’s a mind-bending, at instances fairly complicated, film. Jamie Lee Curtis was unimaginable, like nothing I’ve seen her do earlier than, and the remainder of the appearing was strong as properly. Had been they parts I’d relatively haven’t seen? Completely. Would I watch it once more? Possibly sometime. Do I like to recommend it? Sure. 

This isn’t the film for a peaceful, stress-free evening at dwelling, however it’s a film that’s fully engrossing, chaotic, and memorable. You’ll both take pleasure in it or hate it. I don’t suppose that there’s a impartial floor right here.

What I’m READING: A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik. That is the primary guide within the Scholomance trilogy. It took me a bit to essentially get into this one. The protagonist isn’t very likeable, and but, you’ll end up rooting for her survival earlier than you’re very deep into the guide. It’s a darkish, grownup twist on a magical boarding college and an unwilling darkish sorceress who finds herself making an attempt to outlive there.

“For all the things there’s a season, and a time for each matter underneath heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what’s planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to interrupt down, and a time to construct up; a time to weep, and a time to snicker; a time to mourn, and a time to bop.” Ecclesiastes 3:1-4 ESV

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