I don’t assume it issues the place you reside when you’re within the US proper now, everybody appears to be getting hit with it on some stage. We’re snowed on this weekend – to not be confused with the snow we had final week and the week earlier than that.
I lastly perceive the enjoyment of anticipating spring sunshine and the happiness of hotter days to come back. I nonetheless love the winter and even these snowy days, however I certain am wanting ahead to sunshine and heat afternoons spent on the porch.
ON THE BLOG this week: Cafe con Leche is a creamy scorching espresso drink usually made with espresso and milk. Whereas I take pleasure in mine frivolously sweetened, many individuals want it unsweetened. It’s simpler to make than you may assume and also you don’t want a flowery countertop espresso machine to make it.
Tender, juicy Pork Medallions are served with a creamy wine sauce to create a mouthwatering meal. This complete recipe comes collectively in nearly 20 minutes! Pan-frying pork medallions are a terrific method to cook dinner pork tenderloin. It solely takes a minute and the meat seems juicy and scrumptious each single time.
What I’m CRAVING: These wonderful Peanut Butter Cookies. (I simply made one other batch this week. I LOVE them!) This recipe has been an enormous reader favourite from The Weeknight Dessert Cookbook. And fortunate for you right now, my good friend Kathryn shared the recipe on her web site some time again and I can hyperlink to it right here for you.
My FAVORITE THINGS this week are these cheap ring sizers. They’re completely sensible! A few my rings have been spinning on my fingers and these quite simple ring sizers have solved that. (They’re such an important value too at simply $8! There are sufficient bands right here to dimension at the very least a dozen or extra completely different rings.) I barely discover the sizer is on the band and the rings are very comfy. I extremely suggest them when you have a hoop that’s barely too large and also you don’t wish to completely resize the ring.
Whereas his books are virtually all the time predictable and loopy tearjerkers too, someway I preserve studying them. This was no completely different. I loved it, however I used to be emotionally exhausted by the point I completed it. There’s a motive I’ll go years between selecting up one among his books. There’s all the time a substantial amount of emotion written into these pages.
All of that mentioned? This wasn’t my favourite of his books, it was positively essentially the most predictable one I’ve learn, AND (despite the fact that I’m not a fan of spoilers) I’m going so as to add that it’s a most cancers story. Personally, if I’d identified that forward of time, I won’t have picked this one up.
What I’m WATCHING: Ben Hur. I launched my boys to this one throughout one among our latest snow days. Are you a fan of the unique film? Typically, you simply have to look at the older motion pictures and I’ve loved a number of outdated motion pictures lately.
I simply realized that Ben Hur was remade just a few years in the past – have you ever seen the brand new one? In that case, do you suggest it?
What I’m LISTENING to: The Willoughbys by Lois Lowry. That is nothing like the opposite Lois Lowry books I’ve learn, however we’re having fun with listening to it. It’s positively a learn (or a pay attention) for older youngsters. All three of my boys are into this one and so they’re large followers of darkish humor. It’s harking back to Lemony Snicket and possibly some Roald Dahl together with that.
