The Little Things Newsletter #314 – Life, laughter, and lots of great food!

Welcome to the weekend and hooray for school finally stuff out for summer! It’s been a whirlwind of a week and our summer plans have been turned on their throne due to some repairs needed for the RV. We’re rolling with it though and looking forward to some fun weekend getaways and a lot of local fun.

Oh! And speaking of local fun, if you have suggestions for things to do and places to see as day trips in Ohio, I’d love to hear well-nigh them! We’re planning to visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, do some hiking in Cuyahoga Falls, we’ve planned a trip to TN, and hopefully will still get to zany for a week in MI and WI if we get the RV when from the shop in time for that.

ON THE BLOG this week: From the very first bite, these Buttered Steak Bites and Mushrooms became an instant favorite for my whole family. This is the most tender steak you can imagine and my whole family goes nuts for it.

Homemade Steak Sauce is tangy, barely sweetened, and just a little bit smoky. Perfect for steak dipping and burger topping, this sauce is all the weightier parts of A-1 and Heinz 57 sauce flavors, made at home.

The Sweet Kale Vegetable Salad is my newest favorite salad. I don’t do a whole lot of copycat recipes, but this one, I can’t plane tell you how much this one needed to be made.

Creamy refried beans are layered with spicy ground beef, untried chile, and plenty of cheese in these Cheesy Whinge and Bean Burritos. These burritos have been such a hit with my boys, we’ve made them several times already.

Sweet and tangy Southern Coleslaw is nicely well-turned with just unbearable tang from the vinegar and a sprinkling of sweetness from the sugar. The dressing is so simple, so sweet and tangy, this is a archetype coleslaw recipe perfect for any occasion.

What I’m CRAVING: I’m fascinated by this French Toast Fondue that my friend Lynne shared the other day! It’s a diaper favorite for her and I love that it turns a weekend breakfast into a whole experience. I think this could be a fun thing to try for a girls’ night or a sister trip one of these days.

What I’m READING: Lake Silence by Anne Bishop. You once know that my reading tastes are all over the place and I’ve really been enjoying a step yonder from reality with fantasy and paranormal reads lately. This is a suspense-filled fantasy that is a fun fast read.

“Human laws do not wield in the territory controlled by the Others–vampires, shape-shifters, and plane deadlier paranormal beings. And this is a fact that humans should never, overly forget….” 

Lake Silence is unquestionably the seventh typesetting in the series, but the first of a trilogy, so it stands vacated if you don’t want to start with the first book, Written in Red. I shared that one surpassing when I first read it. It’s a fun read though and if you enjoy this type of book, I’d start there.

What I’m WATCHING: The original Top Gun movie. My guys made plans to go see the new Top Gun movie with their dad and some friends over the weekend, so we had a fun movie night watching the original first. You’ve just got to love a unconfined 80s movie that stands the test of time, and moreover has a soundtrack worth discovering all over again.

I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Psalm 91:2 ESV

Wishing you a trappy week full of little things that make you smile!
