Only three weekends remain between now and BG’s due date. So I’m trying to make the most of these quiet days. Obviously we’re staying close to home because, well, babies do what they wanna do when it comes to their arrival. The only real things I have on the agenda this weekend is good food, organizing the pantry and brunch after church on Sunday. Other than that, there will be lots of relaxing with little spurts of productivity sprinkled in here and there. I hope you survived yet another snow (woof) and I pray that’s the end of it until next winter. Here are my favorites from the week!
Favorite Fun: White Chocolate Funfetti Rice Krispie Treats. I am instantly happier just looking at these pretty little bars of sweetness.
Favorite Spring: Eliza J Flounce Hem Sweatshirt Dress. I’m so over dressing the bump at this point. And I’m so ready for spring. This dress is adorable and can be dressed up or down.
Favorite Bucket List: Easy Bagel Recipe. I so want to make bagels at home. And while I have several recipes saved this one looks to be the easiest (and healthiest). When do you want bagels, Big Guy?
Favorite Sweet Treat: Healthy Peanut Butter Cups. I am totally making these for an after-dinner treat ASAP.
Favorite List: 14 Things to Make Your Life Easier in 2018. My favorites: “wear looser pants” and “let go of expectations.”
Favorite Snack: Actually Crispy Baked Chickpeas. I adore crispy chickpeas. But they can be hit or miss at actually being crispy. And one of the tips, peeling the skins, is something I do for homemade hummus but haven’t tried for crispy chickpeas.
Favorite For Two: Small Batch Meyer Lemon Scones. There are few things I adore more than the flavor of lemon. How delightful would these be with a mug of hot tea? (I think I just aged myself 35 years.)
Favorite Necessary: Women’s Bean Boots. If it snows ONE more time, these are being ordered immediately. But I also think they’d be great for rainy days. Sometimes my Hunter boots can be a hassle to put on (and take off).
Favorite Dip It: Wild Mushroom and Chorizo Queso Fundido. Football season is slowly, but surely, coming to and end. This would be a delicious way to eat your way through the Super Bowl.
Favorite Trending: Salted Butter and Chocolate Chunk Shortbread Recipe. These cookies seriously almost broke the internet last week. I saw them posted on Instagram at least 20 times. So that means, they definitely need to happen. Perhaps tomorrow.
