Welcome to the weekend, my buddies! 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 wanting ahead to all of it – whereas additionally soaking in each calm second at residence in between occasions. 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 primary, so extremely easy, that it may be tough to explain their awesomeness. That’s how I really feel about cottage cheese with fruit. Two elements. (Positive, you’ll be able to gown it up a bit, for those who like, however at its coronary heart, simply 2 elements.) Whether or not that is my breakfast, a day snack, or a candy chew after dinner, I eat this mix sooner or later almost each single day.

Savory chunks of hen mingle with candy grapes, crunchy walnuts, and crisp apples on this simple Chicken Waldorf Salad. This can be 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 inform you 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 will 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 once 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 whilst you might be chilled from the ice cream. The mix of warmth with the chilly is unbelievable.

My household actually loves pancakes!) My boys and I are going to strive a few new recipes this morning too!

My FAVORITE THING this week is my very basic to-do-list style, undated planner.

I switched to this model of planner a few years in the past and it’s been an ideal match for me. It really works nicely as my guidelines for every day with the additional advantage of getting time slots on the facet for the times after I’m extra scheduled. 

What I’m READING: Atomic Habits by James Clear. I’ve in all probability learn this e book at the very least 3-4 occasions now and referred again to it extra occasions than I do know. I can’t suggest it extremely sufficient. Teenagers, younger adults, enterprise homeowners, at-home mother and father, retirees – there’s recommendation right here that might profit anybody and everybody, at any stage of life. I personal it on Kindle, in paper, and as an audiobook. It’s a superb refresher and reminder of the place I need 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.” This can be a enjoyable, quick learn for any Harry Potter fan. When you occur to take pleasure in audiobooks and are additionally a little bit of a Harry Potter nerd, the 90-minute narration is unbelievable. Jude Regulation reads Dumbledore’s half and I loved it. 

Give due to the Lord, for he’s good; his love endures eternally.” Psalm 107:1-2 NIV
