The Little Things Newsletter #423 – Life, laughter, and lots of great food!


Welcome to the weekend, my friends! It’s been a week of beautiful weather here in Ohio and I’ve spent much of it either walking outdoors or enjoying the breeze through the window next to my desk. Today is promising a bit of rain and I’m looking forward to an afternoon at home with a book and maybe a puzzle too, depending on whether my older kids are home and interested in doing said puzzle with me. I’m happy to have a fridge filled with leftovers and no reason or motivation to cook today.

ON THE BLOGS THIS WEEK: Blueberry salsa deliciously defies salsa convention. Blended blueberries are combined with jalapenos, onion, and lime juice to form the base of this non-traditional but stupendous snack you’ll crave all summer long.

BBQ chicken french bread pizza is a pizza lover’s dream come true! With just a few ingredients and about 20 minutes, you can have dinner on the table.

With little more than a few small zucchini and a couple of ears of fresh corn, you can be on your way to piping hot, crispy, craveable zucchini corn fritters.

Grilled corn is a deceptively simple show stopper of a side dish. Learn how to grill corn on the cob to get perfectly sweet charred kernels and make this gorgeous summer classic your claim to fame.

Strawberry crisp gets a little tropical glow up with a buttery, coconut studded, brown sugar crisp layered over an abundance of fresh strawberries. When summer strawberries are everywhere at their peak, you positively must try it!

Strawberry lemonade ice cream is a bright lemony ice cream with a strawberry swirl and it is as refreshing as a tall glass of frosty lemonade. Be prepared to swoon!

You only need four ingredients to make this strawberry shortcake ice cream and you won’t even need an ice cream machine to churn it. 

What I’m CRAVING: Anything at all with fresh peaches! From southern peach cobbler to this peach caprese salad and warm bowls of peach oatmeal, I will happily eat peaches with every meal these days. I adore pizza with fresh peaches and arugula with a bit of balsamic, something like this pizza, and it’s endlessly adaptable!

What I’m READING: Healing After Loss: Daily Meditations For Working Through Grief by Martha Whitmore Hickman. A dear friend sent me this book and it’s been such a blessing to me. It’s a brief daily read and can be started at any point. 

What I’m LISTENING to: This interview with Dr. Gladys McGarey – Life Is Short: 103-Year-Old Shares 5 Lessons For The Next 50 Years Of Your Life. Her life story is amazing and this interview was a fun and inspiring listen. I’m looking forward to reading her book now.

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4 NIV

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

Mary
