It’s time to link up with the ladies here for Friday Favorites!
Here are some things that made my list of favorites this week…
I saw a recipe and I had all of the ingredients for…
Katharine Hepburn’s brownies. Did you know she had some brownies she was famous for? I didn’t either! These have hardly any flour in them so they are kind of more like a flourless chocolate cake.
So, now my sisters, Erica, and Elizabeth agree with Jen. The Truly Margarita pack is really good.
I think strawberry hibiscus is my favorite!
I was busy having fun this week. Tuesday I went to the adult pool with Erica and Elizabeth and it was so hot I stayed in the water on my float the whole time.
My lower sugar jam is also a hit! It is only lower by one cup and then I split the pectin between raspberries and strawberries this time. I might be putting the raspberry on brie and wrapping it in puff pastry or Crescent Roll dough soon…stay tuned!
I love working smarter and not harder. I made all the spaghetti and taco meat at the same time this week. I like to do this type of thing in the morning because I fade as the day goes on. Just knowing that the “hard” part of dinner is done really helps me around 5:00 pm or whenever I make dinner.
So, you know how these are my favorites. The chocolate is so rich that I really only need one.
Well, Tom loves these because they remind him of his favorite Graeter’s ice cream flavor – black raspberry chip!
I made a yummy hashbrown, veggie, Canadian bacon with egg bowl for one of my breakfasts this week:
I made teriyaki chicken bowls for one of our dinners:
I made burrito bowls with a side of chilaquiles for a dinner this week:
I am showing you my plates. I use cauliflower rice for me and regular rice for the others.
I had a cool lunch at a Venezuelan place this week. Johnna reached out to me a few years ago and said she was also a Spanish teacher in Kentucky and had found my blog. We have kept in touch and we finally got to meet because she was in town for a conference!
She was delightful and we could have talked for much longer!
We ordered yucca fries:
And, we each got an arepa. I got the vegetarian:
I arrived a bit early to shop in the cute little NULU area:
I love this area of town on the outskirts of our downtown.
And, I started watching Virgin River season 4. I’m really enjoying it so far!
And, I will leave you with this final favorite for this week. The look of pure joy on Ernie’s face when his Daddy gives him a belly rub. Doesn’t it look like he is smiling?
Ernie is going to be so sad when his people go back to campus and work. I wonder if all the dogs are thinking…”remember when my people were all home with me for a very long time and it was the best time of my life?”
What were your favorites this week?
