We had a fantastic go to with household and I’m fortunately having fun with some sofa time and video games with my boys this weekend.

ON THE BLOG this week: Tangy cranberry pancakes topped with maple syrup make getting off the bed on the weekend slightly bit simpler. I’ll be making these a pair extra instances for sure earlier than cranberry season involves an finish.

Talking of syrup, brown sugar and butter could be simmered collectively to create a caramel toffee-flavored selfmade syrup like nothing you’ve ever tasted. This sauce is not any substitute for maple syrup, Brown Butter Do-it-yourself Syrup is superior all by itself.

Crisp child spinach, spring combine lettuces, tart apples, candy raisins, crunchy almonds, and the last word honey cider salad dressing are mixed to create this improbable Spinach Apple Salad.

Oven-roasted cabbage with balsamic and roasted onions is nothing wanting a loopy obsession for me at this level. Strive it as soon as and you’ll perceive.

Do you’ve leftover turkey? Strive including it to this potato and vegetable soup for a hearty meal that you just’re sure to savor. With some rolls and jalapeno honey butter on the facet, this can be a dinner I’m already trying ahead to consuming tomorrow.

What I’m CRAVING: In truth? Not a complete lot. Humorous how a day of feasting does that to us, doesn’t it? Although I’m more likely to be sprucing off the remainder of the Strawberry Pretzel Salad with each meal till it’s performed.

My FAVORITE THING this week is Bananagrams. I performed this recreation all week with each the adults and the youngsters and all of us had loads of enjoyable. (I play with my boys typically and we like it.) It’s such enjoyable to observe the little youngsters determine it out and it’s all the time a blast with the linguists and wordsmiths within the household too.

What I’m READING: 22 Seconds by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro (hyperlink HERE) That is the newest e-book within the Ladies’s Homicide Membership collection and I loved it. Sadly, as tends to occur with bigger collection of books, after 20 books issues admittedly get slightly bit monotonous at instances, nonetheless, I nonetheless take pleasure in this collection. 

The primary 10-15 books on this collection are actually nice reads although should you’re in search of one thing new.

Whereas I nonetheless take pleasure in the brand new books, I don’t have a tendency to leap on them as quickly as they’re launched lately.

That is feel-good family-friendly humor that I hope by no means goes out of favor. (I did a double-take once I seen that it was launched over 30 years in the past!) It’s positively a film price watching once more if it’s been some time.
