Thankful Thursday!



Today, I'm super thankful that it's Thursday because that means that I've made it through another week!

I'm thankful for my hard working husband and the fact that he actually took Monday off! I know, minor miracle!

I'm thankful that even though our daughter has been a little under the weather, she is still pleasant to be around and doing all her chores.

I'm thankful for all the ladies that are taking part in the James Bible study this summer! It's been amazing to see who God has brought together.

And this is something just a little silly but true. I'm thankful for my Norwex mop. Seriously! I used to dust mop every week and then wet mop on occasion, a rare occasion actually because it was a process. I had to find the spray bottle, make sure everything was clean and then mop. The fact that the Norwex wet mop just has to be rinsed with clean water and I can throw it in with my other microfiber load means that I'm wet mopping practically every week! So by default, the floors are cleaner. But the floors are so much cleaner that I notice when they get dirty under my feet and so I dry mop a little more often, too. Like I said just a little silly, but I'm thankful for it.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Broccoli

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day that was labeled " The Best Broccoli Of Your Life. " I normally either steam our broccoli in the microwave or saute it with olive oil and red pepper flakes on the stove top. I decided this would be something to try. I did the salt, pepper and olive oil part of the recipe. I didn't have the majority of the other ingredients. In fact, all I had was a little bit of Parmesan  It was wonderful. Not the best broccoli of my life, but honestly, it was pretty close. And if I had the lemon juice and all that jazz, it may very well be the best. What have you been eating lately?

Together is a Beautiful Place by Bailey T. Hurley

  Have you ever wanted to be a better friend or been stumped by how to make your friendships more meaningful? If so, you might want to pick up a copy of Together is a Beautiful Place. Hurley does an excellent job of sharing ways to connect with people that you know and how to easily take your relationships from surface level to deep and meaningful parts of your life. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Hurley incorporates surveys and other data to give insight into relationship building. She shares that it takes 90 hours of social interaction to consider someone a friend. When you’re only seeing each other in passing, it will take much longer than when you carve out time to specifically be with people.  Overall, Together is a Beautiful Place is an encouraging and helpful read. Exactly what I needed as I continue to make friends in life.  I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for the purpose of review. I’m never required to say nice things about books but I’m always
