The Little Things Newsletter #364 – Live, Laugh and Lots of Great Food!

Welcome to the weekend, my friends! I’ve been traveling since last Wednesday (first to NM and then to AZ) and finally made it home last night. I’m so happy to wake up in my own bed today and enjoy a relaxing day with my family.

ON THE BLOGS This week: Creamy and cheesy, with wonderful lingering spiciness, this green chilli mac and cheese is a head turner, transforming the typical comfort food into a dish that’s downright irresistible.

Everyone’s favorite and timeless Rainbow Fruit Salad combines a variety of bright and colorful fresh fruits with a tangy honey-lime dressing to create a delicious summer side dish.

Bold and tangy flavors meet the refreshing crunch of fresh cucumbers in this Spicy Asian Cucumber Salad. This simple side dish is a never-ending snack.

Tender, crisp cabbage, carrots and peppers combine with hearty ground beef, leaving a subtle, lingering spiciness that leaves you wanting more. It’s a jam-packed pan of egg roll flavors that we love.

Grandma’s German pancakes meet irresistibly caramelized apples in these German Apple Pancakes. You won’t believe how easy it is to prepare such a delicious breakfast treat.

Filled with plenty of fresh strawberries and blueberries, these fluffy hotcakes are heavenly. These berry pancakes will put a smile on everyone’s face this weekend.

Get ready for a delicious combination of fresh fruit and cool mint in these blueberry mojitos. You will be hooked from the first sip!

Creamy vanilla ice cream with tart lemon curd is a treat that can be made all year round. Embellish your next dessert with this refreshing lemon curd ice cream!

What I long for: These Chicken Parmesan Gnocchi caught my eye yesterday and they sound so good! It must be on our menu soon.

What I read: He Who Fights Monsters 8: A LitRPG Adventure by Shirtaloon and Travis Deverell. With the 8th book I’m completely addicted to this series again. It was fun to read/listen to while traveling.

What I hear: dog mouth. This group is new to me and I enjoyed it. It’s Americana meets rock, blues, alternative, folk… I’m not even sure how to describe it, but it’s an overall feel. If you like Shakey Graves, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, the Lumineers or the Revivalists, you’re probably a fan too.

“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.” James 4:8a ESV

Have a great week full of little things that make you smile!
