Welcome to the weekend, my associates! After a really laid-back week at Lake Ouachita in Arkansas (learn extra HERE), we hit the street once more yesterday. We awakened this morning in Texas and we’re already driving once more. We’ll be in Carlsbad, NM tonight and spending the day at Carlsbad Caverns tomorrow. YAY! Then we’re headed to my mother’s home for the week main as much as our annual household campout.
I’m past excited to lastly spend a while with my prolonged household once more. I’ve missed them a lot! With 7 siblings and their households, we make for a heck of a bunch anytime we collect collectively. The annual tenting journey is one thing all of us look ahead to yearly.
ON THE BLOG this week: Crisp and buttery on the skin, fluffy on the within, home made waffles are a breakfast (or a dinner!) for which my complete household cheers. I like candy waffles, savory waffles, snack waffles (handheld Ham and Cheese Waffles, I’m you). For those who can waffle it, I’ll most likely like it.
Creamy, wealthy, vanilla waffle sauce is the very best topping on your favourite breakfasts. For my household, Waffles-with-Waffle-Sauce is a THING. I’ve by no means served my grandmother’s Waffle Sauce to somebody who hasn’t liked it, as a result of this sauce has the power to make an strange meal additional particular.
What I’m CRAVING: I’ve talked about them greater than as soon as previously, nevertheless it bears repeating, my pal Christi’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies nonetheless stand as among the best cookies I’ve ever eaten. I like her recipe so very a lot and would dearly like to have a bag of these cookies on the street with us this week! They’re severely loaded with peanut butter, peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, peanut butter cups, mini peanut butter cups, and main chocolate taste.
My FAVORITE THING this week is that this little fan. It stands perhaps 10” tall, rotates, works on a distant, and manages to maneuver much more air than I anticipated for such a tiny little fan. I’ve it contained in the RV for the journey, however I’m pretty sure it’ll discover a everlasting dwelling in my workplace after we return dwelling.
What I’m WATCHING: The Italian Job. For those who love an incredible heist film, that is really among the best. I’ve misplaced monitor of what number of occasions Sean and I’ve watched it and we watched it final night time with my two youngest for the primary time and so they each loved it. This one charges two thumbs up from all of us.
For what it’s price, I’m truly not a giant fan of the unique, however the 2003 remake by Mark Wahlberg? It’s incredible.
What I’m READING: I downloaded Bounty by Janet Evanovich and Steve Hamilton earlier than leaving on this journey. I’ve stated many occasions previously that the Stephanie Plum sequence by Evanovich is one among my favourite fast and enjoyable reads. Sadly, I simply can’t get into any of the novels she’s co-writing or signing off on with different authors. This was such a dud, I ditched it just some chapters in. I feel I’m accomplished making an attempt any of those.
Not like the spectacular creator combo that’s James Patterson and Maxine Paetro, I haven’t discovered every other creator collaborations that thrill me. The Girls’s Homicide Membership although? That’s a MUST learn sequence for anybody that loves a thriller/detective/cop sequence. (And an enormous YAY for the actual fact there are 21 books within the sequence now!)
Fortunately, I’ve a complete stack of books ready on my Kindle for the remainder of this journey, so I’ll maintain you posted. I began 4 Winds by Kristin Hannah yesterday and thus far, it’s an excellent one, albeit very completely different from her normal work.
