Welcome to the weekend, my friends! I have big big news today. Some of you caught on with last week’s sneak peek – as I can tell by the recent flood of new email subscribers over there <insert my own little drum roll> we launched a BRAND NEW WEBSITE this past month!
VegetableRecipes.com is up and running and if you are anything like I am, this is exactly what your meal planning needs!
ON THE BLOG this week: Peaches and cinnamon pair perfectly in this recipe for Baked Peach Oatmeal. Eaten on its own or topped with whipped cream, it’s a hit. Anytime I bake peaches into something it reminds me of my favorite peach cobbler or crisp. What’s not to love?
Cabbage Soup with Sausage is loaded with great flavors and it’s filled with far more vegetables and meat than broth. Today, I’m giving you the first new soup recipe for the fall and I couldn’t be more excited about it – Italian White Bean, Cabbage, and Sausage Soup.
Sweet fresh peaches are baked between layers of brown sugar and oats to form a chewy sweet crust for these irresistible Peach Oatmeal Bars. It only takes a few minutes to stir the crust together and press half of it into the pan. Toss the peaches in sugar and spices and layer them over the crust. Sprinkle the remaining buttery crumbles over the peaches and pop it in the oven.
Sweet Potatoes with Sausage is an easy-as-can-be one pan dinner that my family would willingly eat every night. Weeknight meals especially need to be quick and easy, not only on the prep but the clean-up as well. This easy sheet pan dinner with baked chicken thighs, baby potatoes, and fresh green beans has become a favorite in many of your homes over the past two years.
What I’m CRAVING: I’ve been craving this Mango Corn Salsa ever since I made it. My original plan was to share it with my family, but after the first bite of sweet mango, crunchy corn, and mildly spicy jalapenos, I might as well confess that I stashed the rest of it in the back of the fridge for later snacking. This Watermelon Salsa is on my radar now as well and I can’t wait to try it.
My FAVORITE THING this week is my new waterpik. This water flosser is so very cool! Put it on your Christmas wish list, my friends. It leaves your mouth feeling like you just left the dentist. (Without that pesky visit to the dentist in between!)
What I’m WATCHING: The Crown. I started watching this show a few weeks ago and I’ve enjoyed it much more than I anticipated. Being immersed in this show when I heard of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II it felt more real than I would’ve thought possible. I’ve never been much of a an Anglophile, but I do have mad respect for the legacy of the queen.
“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Wishing you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
