The Little Issues E-newsletter #330 – Life, laughter, and many nice meals!


Welcome to the weekend, buddies! I spent the previous few days in Rhode Island, exploring my buddy Lynne‘s favourite a part of the world. The meals we loved this week have been actually wonderful; from lobster rolls to oysters, stuffies to clam chowder, scallop rolls to dough boys, goodies, doughnuts, popcorn and Del’s frozen lemonades on repeat.

As a lot as I take pleasure in journey, it’s nice to be house once more. I’m trying ahead to a enjoyable weekend with all of my boys.

ON THE BLOG this week: Have you ever tried Sizzling Buttered Rum? A heat mug of scorching buttered rum brings a couple of full physique coziness that seems like you might be being wrapped in a thick heat blanket. (You’ll be able to make a non-alcoholic scorching buttered “rum” as nicely!)

These chewy, richly spiced Sizzling Buttered Rum Cookies are the completely happy results of what can I do with the additional buttered rum batter I don’t need to freeze?

Rooster Enchilada Dip is a creamy, tacky, spicy chicken-filled enchilada dip, a success with everybody who tries it. Hearty sufficient for a foremost dish, this was an infinite success for our household film night time.

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

Espresso Ice Cream is kind of simply certainly one of my favorites. I like a easy, clean but wealthy and creamy authentically coffee-tasting ice cream. It is a simplified and egg-free model of my Cafe con Leche Ice Cream – and we LOVE it. 

What I’m CRAVING: Lobster Rolls! (Thanks so much, Lynne.) I’m loving this model from my buddy Heidi. She combines the buttery awesomeness of a scorching lobster roll with the creamy dressing that I like on a chilly roll. I must attempt these lobster rolls quickly!

My FAVORITE THINGS this week are these low cost little cork coasters. I’ve them everywhere in the home. I initially purchased them as a result of my espresso was cooling method too quick once I set the mug down on the kitchen counter. (FYI stone counter tops typically work as a warmth sink and rapidly cool absolutely anything scorching that’s positioned on them.)

Seems I exploit these little coasters on a regular basis in a bunch of various methods. Humid day? They’re a fantastic fundamental coaster to soak up moisture from an iced tea. Different instances, I set just a few of them on the desk they usually’ll maintain a scorching roasting pan properly. At lower than a greenback every, they’ve been a helpful discount discover.

What I’m WATCHING: a buddy despatched me this youtube video hyperlink and I’m right here for all of it. It is a Caroline Winkler video known as “You’re doing house group WRONG.” Each single factor within the video is approachable and by no means a gross sales pitch for issues to purchase. She offers so many nice on daily basis suggestions that you could instantly do in your individual house.

What I’m READING: Land of Silence by Tessa Afshar. I couldn’t put this ebook down. I began studying it on the way in which house from Rhode Island and stayed up method too late to complete it final night time. I requested on FB final week for ebook suggestions and this was one which sounded attention-grabbing. I cherished it.

It is a fictionalized story based mostly on the biblical account of “the girl with the difficulty of blood” discovered within the gospels. The creator by no means contradicts scripture and actually, factors the reader again to studying the Bible for the unique story. This ebook is wealthy with historic element and it brings to life the tradition and society of these instances.

“For by grace you have got been saved by religion. And this isn’t your individual doing; it’s the present of God, not a results of works, in order that nobody could boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

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