The Little Things Newsletter #336 – Life, laughter, and lots of great food!

October 29, 2022

Welcome to the weekend, friends! Are you loving this fall weather as much as I am? I have a whole list of soup recipes to work on over the next few days and I can hardly wait to have the freezer filled with easy meals once again. I’m playing with a couple of new biscuit recipes too, so it’s going to be a tasty weekend.

ON THE BLOG this week: Creamy Turkey Green Chile Soup is loaded to the brim with chunks of leftover turkey and roasted green chile. My husband and boys give this recipe two thumbs up around the table every time I make this.

Cheddar and bacon filled Corn Waffles are great for Sunday brunch or for casual school mornings. I like to triple this recipe and stash them in sandwich bags in the freezer.

BBQ Chicken Zucchini Boats are a saucy, cheesy, deliciously hearty meal that is a refreshing change from the typical sandwiches we usually make with leftover chicken.

Sweet and rich with the slightest bit of crunch from the corn, this creamed corn is made as easy as can be with frozen corn. We enjoy it all year long.

Cheesy, savory, and creamy with a toasted, buttery top broccoli gratin is about to become the most requested vegetable by your family.

2 Ingredient Pancakes have been showing up all over the internet lately. Low carb pancakes that are easy to make, and tasty as can be, we’ve been making these 2 Ingredient Cream Cheese Pancakes for years.

Creamy vanilla cheesecake is poured over a simple graham cracker crust and then topped with a creamy layer of pumpkin to make this Cheesecake Pumpkin Pie. As much as this dessert looks fancy, this is a very simple pie recipe that results in an unforgettable finish for any meal.

Creamy peanut butter fudge filled with chunks of Oreo cookies is an irresistible favorite on any dessert table. The simple peanut butter fudge is made with just four ingredients before being generously filled with Oreos.

What I’m CRAVING: This Fall Harvest Salad by Modern Honey caught my eye and it looks sooooo good! Not only is it gorgeous, but it’s also loaded with so many terrific bites – fresh apples, candied walnuts, dried cranberries, feta or blue cheese, and crispy bacon.

My FAVORITE THING this week is my new waffle iron. I made the above corn waffles in this Dash waffle iron (I was absurdly excited to learn that the company so well known for their teeny waffle irons has FINALLY made a waffle iron that would cook four at a time of the handy 4-inch waffles! I ordered one as soon as I saw it.) 

Turns out that I LOVE it. I honestly thought it might be a little gimmicky, but it browns perfectly on both sides in very little time. The waffles are the perfect size to freeze a couple at a time in sandwich bags for easy breakfasts.

What we’re WATCHING: The Samaritan. I’ll start by saying that our whole family enjoyed this movie. Was it cheesy and a bit slow at times? Yes. Could the world-building have used some work? Sure.

Despite those things, Stallone as an aging superhero in hiding was fun to watch and I appreciated it was clean enough that my youngest was able to watch with us without a need to preview it first.

“Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends.” Proverbs 17:9 NLT

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